After my book signing on the 5th at Divine Devotions, Lynn Coyne has kindly decided to start carrying my novel on a regular basis. Her hours are a bit in flex right now, as her family adjusts to the loss of her father, so you might want to call to see if she’s there: (607) 621-3886.
On Aug. 26, I will be part of Barnes & Noble’s Local Authors Night at the Vestal, New York, store. The event is tentatively scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. A lot of people have been asking when the book will be available there. NOTE: This is a one-night event, until I can get the national chain to pick up the book.
Remember that books are always available at Riverow Bookshop, 187 Front St., Owego, New York. You can call them at (607) 687-4094. And if none of these venues are near you, order here from my E-Store or on Amazon.com. (See links to your left.)
Lynn Coyne, owner of Divine Devotions (site of my first book signing) has opened up an online store. You can visit it by clicking here.
Thanks to all the people who turned out tonight for my book review at the George F. Johnson Memorial Library. It was a pleasure meeting you all. I enjoyed your good questions. Who would have thought we’d take up a side discussion on the current state of journalism… :^)
To all of you who bought a copy of the book, thanks so much and I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think by sending me an e-mail to 1MaeveKenny@gmail.com
Just a reminder that I will review The Cyber Miracles tonight at George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott, N.Y. Refreshments will be served at 7 p.m. with the review beginning at 7:30. For directions, see my Events page.
I will be selling copies of the book as well as signing them ($20 each). So bring your copy if you have one! Look forward to seeing/meeting you there.
I’ve been trying to keep track of all the destinations where The Cyber Miracles has traveled to. As of today, according to my Bookmarks page, I know it’s been/is being read in 16 places in New York state, six U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, three countries and two continents! Let’s see how far this book will go… C’mon Kentucky! C’mon Canada! C’mon Australia! C’mon Antarctica!
Think it’s already been more places than I have listed? Send me an e-mail at 1MaeveKenny@gmail.com with the details and I’ll post the info here.
Right now the only physical bookstore that carries it is Riverow Bookshop in Owego, N.Y. Do you know a bookstore near you that might be a good place to carry it? Drop me an e-mail.
This week I will be giving a review of the book at 7 p.m. Tuesday at George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott. I may be doing a Web radio interview soon, too. Details to follow.
Do you know of any organization that might be interested in me talking about the book? Contact me at my e-mail address.
Just learned today that Lynn Coyne (who hosted my book signing on Saturday at her shop Divine Devotions) lost her father — Leonard Rollo — on Monday. May he rest in peace. Please keep Lynn and the Rollo family in your thoughts and prayers.
A thousand thanks to all of you who stopped by at Divine Devotions yesterday for my first book signing. Thanks to owner Lynn Coyne, too, who ensured that the event ran smoothly and was a success!
I enjoyed meeting you all (let me know what you think of the book at firstname.lastname@example.org) and also appreciated my family and friends who stopped by to show support.
NEXT UP: I’ll review The Cyber Miracles at 7 p.m. on April 15 at the George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott. I’ll be selling books there as well as signing copies you may have already purchased.
Lynn Coyne at Divine Devotions gift shop will hold a book signing for me TODAY from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You will be able to buy copies of The Cyber Miracles there for $20 (note: her store takes checks and cash, no credit cards) and I will sign it for you.
If you’ve already bought the book, bring it along and I’ll sign it for you, too.
Her store is at 2204 North St. in Endwell, N.Y. (It’s one block east of the North Street/Hayes Avenue intersection, on the right as you head east.) Hope to see you there.
P.S. Come & sample some “Cool Beans Café Half Moon Cookies,” just like you’ll read about in the book!
Today at 1 p.m. I was a guest on Bill Jaker’s show “Off the Page” on WSKG FM. Bill is the consummate pro and made the interview feel as easy as a front porch conversation. He obviously had read the book carefully and brought up the key points I was trying to get across. We started the show off with a bit of fun, as Gaeilge, in honor of the date.
Bill has crossed over recently into blogdom with The Jakerblog on which he discusses his shows, musings on life and includes his beautifully evocative poem, “winter memory.”
If you enjoyed the poem I read on the show, “Raifteirí,” you can see a bilingual transcription of it on my Gaeilge page.
Go raibh míle maith agat, a Liam (A thousand thanks to ye, Bill)!
UPDATE: Greg Keeler of WSKG graciously supplied the permanent link to our interview yesterday, including a downloadable podcast. Access them here.
