Going home to Boston (Newton actually) on November 18 at 7 pm, where I will be reading and signing books at one of my favorite places, Newtonville Books.
These days, the budget is limited for touring or publicity. So I’m a one-person band in the direct promotion of my book that is gradually finding its audience. So it was my good luck and great pleasure to discover France Booktours, run by a dynamo named Emma. Each day, for ten days during my virtual book […]
