I was recently asked to judge a "Paint a Puppy" Contest, an event that was part of my town's Old Home Days. It is a fun event, sponsored by Rotary, and includes free cake and ice cream for all the residents who come to see the paintings.
If you aren't signed up to receive my quarterly newsletter, you may not have seen the shows I am currently participating in during the Holiday season. So, here they are:
November 03 - Granite State Choral Society -
9 - 3pm - Rochester Community Ctr, 150 Wakefield St., Rochester, NH
November 23, 24, 25 - Castle in the Clouds Holiday Show
10 - 4:30pm - 455 Old Mountain Rd., Moultonborough, NH
December 01 - Prospect Mountain High School - Holiday Show
9 - 2pm - 242 Suncook Valley Rd (Rte 28), Alton, NH
All of these shows are free to the public. Come in and do your holiday shopping! Only 63 days until Christmas!!!! Yikes!! Stop by to say "Hi!" and purchase my latest book, or a mini original piece of artwork, or commission me to do an animal portrait. Don't wait until the last minute!
On Thursday, October 11 from 5-7pm, I will be one of three authors making a presentation at Winnipesaukee Winery in the antiques barn next to the 1810 House B&B in Wolfeboro, NH (Rte 28). The event (cost is $20) will include a glass of fine wine from the winery plus a variety of hors d'oeuvres and an opportunity to purchase personally autographed books from me, Kristina Schram, and K.M. Doherty. Remember, Christmas is coming!
This has been a long time coming! Although I finished this collection of literary short stories over a year ago, there have been too many things going on for both Jim (Publisher/Editor of BBD Publishing) and me and we haven't been able to give the book the time it deserved. But short of telling Jim he needed to 'drop everything' and focus on my book, the book is now done and we will be picking copies up from the printer next week.
