It’s going to be 62 degrees and sunny tomorrow, October 12, 2014, so come and see me and the other amazing authors at the 1st Annual Belmar BookCon.  Start your holiday shopping early. Having a book autographed for someone special makes a great gift!

The Belmar BookCon is right in the middle of Belmar’s Oktoberfest!  Oktoberfest is 11:30- 5:30 on Main Street in Belmar, NJ between 8th and 10th. Come out and have some good food, visit the crafters and let the kids play some games!  And stop by the BookCon to see me in the middle of it all.  A beautiful day awaits!

Hope to see you there!

Community Affairs Update

Hi everyone!  How was your summer? I hope you had a great one! I can’t believe it’s over already.

I just wanted to give you an update on Community Affairs, Book #3 in the Jersey Shore mystery series.  I just sent the first 100 pages to the editor!  Now I still have to write the ending, do a little editing myself, then send off the rest of it.  I hope to accomplish that in two weeks.

Then it will be about 8 weeks at the editor.  After that, it’s formatting, uploading, and getting a proof copy. Reproofing, then off to Beta readers for reviews and hopefully to catch any final errors.

So, if you haven’t figured it out, writing a book is a very long process!  I was hoping to have this one out by January, but I think it’s going to take a little longer.

I’ll keep you posted as things progress!  Thanks for reading and enjoy your September!
