This week I spoke with the Director of the Highwood Public Library. Highwood is having a 125 year celebration in January. He suggested the book signing coincide with the celebration. It will be on a Saturday in January. More info to follow.

Rumor has it that some of the girls at Meyer Material have chosen Highway to Love for their book club read. Also, a friend is working on getting me in with the Highwood Library. Need to follow up on a possible book signing there since I am, as most of you know, a Highwood gal. Lastly, I’ve gotten myself posted on the Highland Park High School Class of 1967 blog which has had something like 20,000 hits in the last two years (wish me luck). Let us all wish good luck and send our prayers to those in the path of Sandy…

I received a call last night that Lake Zurich Library has accepted my book. So both Palatine Library and LZ Library carry my novel. Yippee! I’m so excited to increase my readership.

This week Nicki Elson, author of Three Daves and a local gal (and my niece), interviewed me and posted it on her blog.
Check it out. Her blog is awesome. Also, check out Three Daves. It will bring back all those fun college memories!


All in all, I was very pleased with the signing at Tech Nail. I sold 11 books and received two great leads that I will follow up on. Not only did I have conversations with some really nice ladies, the girls at the shop fed me lunch and were my greatest sales ladies!



I’ve been in touch with the lady who runs the Tuscan Market Book Club. Although they basically only work with two major houses, she agreed to take a look at my book. Can’t ask for more than that! For those of you that are not familiar with Tuscan Market, it is a wonderful wine shop in downtown Arlington Heights. They have good food and you can grab a sandwich, some pizza, and great and unique wines and beers. They also have wonderful meats and fish. Other news! I just heard Palatine Library has my book! A friend told them to order it, they did, and she is the first reader. Happy I can increase readership!

I’ll be signing books at Tech Nail in Lake Zurich Friday and Saturday, August 24 and 25 from 10 am to 4 pm. Come join us!
