     Taking a breather @ 11:11 from writing the climax to the sequel of “The Cyber Miracles.” Phew! Le cunamh Dé, it will be finished by nightfall. First I’ll pause to gives some thanks where it’s due, “the author of life,” then back to scribbling out the story on notepad. Feet don’t fail me now…

     Thanks to Amazon.com and other such vendors, beginning writers like myself have an unbelieveable audience reach. Within a year my humble novel had an international audience. That just blows me away.
     At the same time, let’s not forget our homegrown neighborhood bookstores. They are particularly helpful to local authors, giving them an audience in their own backyard that can, through word of mouth, help grow a book’s audience.
     Think about the jobs you can save, too, by shopping locally. You help the hometown economy, you help fledgling authors. Win-win, as they say.
     Signed copies of “The Cyber Miracles” are now available at three Southern Tier bookstores.
     Stop in and say hi to Laura at Riverow Bookshop, where you’ll find current works and a great used/rare books selection that can save you lots of $$$. Chat awhile with Connie, Pat and Jane at the very cozy RiverRead Books in Binghamton.Gaze at the beautiful view of the Chenango River as you sip tea in handthrown pottery mugs. And make sure to stop and say hi to Gary at The Bookery II when you visit the always cool & hip downtown Ithaca.
     Online stores and local bookstores can, and must, coexist. So readers, give them a chance and browse them all.

     “The Cyber Miracles” sequel was put on hold for January as I decided (insanely) to compete in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Specifics in the rules said that “TCM” was not eligible, and I thought the sequel so far is dependent on the original story. That left me with the task of writing something new. I did it in a month!
     My entry in ABNA is called “The Terminal Diner.” Just as in “TCM,” this novel also takes place in Binghamton, N.Y. It tells the tale of a pie baker at a diner near the airport who meets three people there on the day before 9/11 who will all have a profound effect on her life. I find out March 16 if I’ve made it through to the second round. Watch this spot for more info. Should I be fortunate to win (or place in the top four), there’s a great chance of getting a book deal with Penguin Books. Mamma Mia!
     So, as I pray for a cyber miracle of my own, it’s back to writing the sequel. Now Fergal, as you were just saying…

About the book

Maeve Kenny's life was going exactly as she'd planned. At 30 she was dating a soap opera star and had an exciting public relations career with an Irish-owned firm in Manhattan. Then three sudden events turned everything upside down, and Maeve found herself fleeing her Queens apartment for sanctuary back home upstate in Binghamton. As she tries to readjust to the dramatic changes in her life, Maeve says she needs a miracle to turn her life around. Who would have thought the whole world would be watching when it happens?
