Four Readings And A Cackle

The latest schedule for four readings from The Dream Antilles in the Hudson Valley, New York - Massachusetts Berkshires area:

10/26 7:00 pm at The Old Farm Store in Harlemville, Ghent, New York

11/12 at 2:00 pm at The Book Store, Housatonic Street, Lenox, Massachusetts

12/9 at 5:00 pm at Spotty Dog Books and Ale, Warren Street, Hudson, New York

12/17 2:00 pm at Red Maple Books in Ghent, New York

There might be additional readings in December; stay tuned for details as they emerge. Please come to any and all of these readings. There will be refreshments and I'll sign your books. And these are a great opportunity to buy a dozen copies to give as Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Solstice gifts.

Meanwhile, I have to cackle. Amazon today ranked The Dream Antilles #1,004,559 in sales even though there is a new, wonderful review of the book on Amazon (Thanks Jessie). This is a mind boggling statistic. I didn't even know there were more than 1 million books in print, much less that they're all apparently selling better on Amazon than The Dream Antilles. This probably means that The Dream Antilles needs a great publicist, or an advertising agency, or a descendent of the Medicis, or a grant, or an award, or some new, big word of mouth. Are you listening Oprah? Terry Gross? Got a suggestion about how to get this book wider recognition? Please post it here or email it to me.
