Hope this finds you and yours healthy and happy.
I just finished participating in this year’s New England Author’s Exposition, July 30, in Danvers MA. As usual, Chris Obert did an outstanding job organizing the event. It was a great opportunity, not just for selling and signing books, but also for networking with other authors and writing-related professionals. As always, it was wonderful just taking in the fantastic ambiance at the event site: the marvelous Danversport Yacht Club.
