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.
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.
The ad for my book signing at Divine Devotions this Saturday was in the newspaper this morning (Page 4B). I’m looking forward to it — should be a fun day.
Tuesday I will be on Bill Jaker’s Off the Page at 1 p.m. on WSKG radio. In the highlights for this week, Jaker writes:
“Maeve Kenny’s glamorous career at the Manhattan office of an Irish public relations firm suddenly collapses and sends Maeve back to her hometown of Binghamton. But with spunk, computer savvy and some good Irish luck Maeve turns her life around. “The Cyber Miracles” is the first novel by Mary Pat Hyland, a former columnist for the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin. She speaks with Bill Jaker about her debut in fiction and about her loving involvement in Irish and Irish-American culture.”
Check out the Reviews page to read the latest opinions on my novel. Thanks, Cheryl & Connie!
Lynn Coyne at Divine Devotions gift shop has decided to extend the hours of my book signing event on Saturday, April 5. It will now be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Her shop offers many unique religious items, including beautiful crystal rosary bracelets that Lynn makes herself. Very pretty.
On a separate note, I dropped off copies of The Cyber Miracles at Riverow Bookshop in Owego today.
I’ve been busy getting ready for some upcoming events in April.
First up is my interview with Bill Jaker on his radio show “Off the Page” at 1 p.m. April 1 on WSKG-FM. (The show is repeated at 7 p.m. and available for a downloadable podcast the next day.)
Bill called me a couple of hours ago to discuss the show and mentioned that the famous grotto at Lourdes, France, has a Web cam, not unlike the one in The Cyber Miracles, that you can view here.
My latest order of books will be arriving this week in anticipation of a book signing April 5 at Divine Devotions at 2204 North St. in Endwell and a book review April 15 at George F. Johnson Memorial Library in Endicott. An autographed copy of TCM will be auctioned April 2 during Ithaca College Bursar’s Benefit Auction at the Clark Lounge in the Campus Center.
On April 1, I will be a guest on Bill Jaker’s “Off the Page” show on WKSG FM radio. The show’s format includes a discussion of the book between the host and guest author and includes listener questions via call-ins and e-mail. To participate in the conversation, call during the 1:00 PM live broadcast to 1-888-359-9754 or post a question via e-mail to WSKG.Radio@Gmail.com. The show is broadcast at 1 p.m. and repeated at 7 p.m. Within 24 hours of broadcast it will be available via podcast at the link above.
WSKG FM is broadcast at 89.3 FM in Binghamton, 90.9 FM in Ithaca, 91.7 FM in Oneonta and Cooperstown, 91.1 FM in Corning and Elmira, and 88.7 FM in Hornell and Alfred.
Lynn Coyne at Divine Devotions gift shop will hold a book signing for me on Saturday, April 5 from 9 a.m. to 2 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. Hope to see you there.
