ten days ago, I mentioned it had been a crazy week. I was wrong.
It’s been a crazy month… and that should probably read months,
because it goes back into the summer.
just the past five or six weeks, writing and craft events covering
hundreds of miles of driving and multiple states, with prep work
involved for all of them… projects and such behind the scenes
for both personal and professional reasons… and the list moves
keep things simple for today…
a huge, HUGE, HUGE
thank you to everyone that spent some time with us over the past
weekend at Turning Stone Resort Casino in New York.
facility… terrific people. We caught up with several friends,
and made some new ones. The community that develops around these
things is unbelievable. We are grateful to be a part of it, and
appreciate all of the wonderful people we’ve met along the way.
up for ComplemenTerry
Designs is the final event of 2017… the Holiday
Craft Show in New York Mills, NY. We’re returning to this event
for two days. On December 2nd and 3rd, the fortieth annual show
will be held. Times are 10am to 4pm on both days. And… we are
planning to bring along live/fresh arrangements for this show.
want to direct a light in the direction of A
Parkside View for a moment. The December
issue will be out later this week. If you are signed up to receive
it… awesome… get ready for it. If you aren’t… why not? It’s easy,
and free. Send us a message or e-mail and we’ll get things organized.
is going to be fun. Get ready for a massive increase in activity
here on the web site. I have at least one surprise that I think
will be ready to announce. It’s never that quiet around The ‘ville.
a crazy few weeks. Unexpected items needed to get done… which
is, of course, the way life works. Also prepping for next week’s
two-day event with ComplemenTerry
Designs. Hopefully we can get back in the
swing of things and cover a good amount of ground in the next
week or so. I can say that I will have a lot going on around here
in December. We’ll wrap things up today with a new piece.
want to nod in the direction of Local
Friends. Continuing until the end of the month,
the November challenge is Toasty and Warm. The idea is to find
those places and things that offer comfort on colder days and
evenings. Cozy surroundings… great ways to start or spend a day…
good food… quality ways to spend time.
teaser out for
details about Star
and Disney theme parks continues to be released
Doctors… one massive regeneration… Doctor
Incredibles 2… getting closer and closer.
here’s the new essay… “Of
manners and myths”
entry today… at least in purpose…
want to express my appreciation and gratitude to some great locations…
& Noank Library
I finished up a run of appearances that included all four of these
tremendous libraries. We held sessions of A
Writer’s Workshop to discuss publishing at
most. We did a meet-and-greet at one. And we had a ton of fun
been to each of these locations previously, and I am thrilled
and honored to have been invited back. I absolutely hope to have
the chance to visit them again in the future. Tremendous facilities…
beautiful buildings (with great histories and a strong presence
in their communities)… and, AWESOME
teams staffing the properties.
we’re going to say it again…
time for all of the people that came to the events. I saw some
incredible friends, and it was wonderful to catch up with all
of you. I made some new friends, and I can’t wait to hear from
you soon and meet again.
recognize that each and every one of you have important things
going on and taking up your personal and professional lives. I
am quite aware that you made a decision to invest some time in
me, and I sincerely hope you enjoyed it and found it worthwhile.
2017 writing appearance schedule is finished. I already have ideas
being discussed for 2018… which will find me heading out to some
new places and, hopefully, making a return to some.
now… to all of the people that provided time, efforts and an audience
for me… I cannot say it enough…
I’ll be in Liverpool, New York, from Noon to 2pm. It’s part of
an author and artist meet-and-greet event at the Liverpool
than a dozen of us will be participating. We’ll be there to talk
and answer questions, show off some of our latest efforts, and—if
you wish—offer a signature or two.
of right now, I’ll be featuring Life Won’t Pass Me By
for this appearance. I’ll also have a few copies of several of
my titles along with me…

Just Drifts Away
you can stop, I highly recommend this event. It’s free and open
to the public. The library is quite nice. And the material involved
covers a wide range of subjects and styles. Plus… books are great
will be my final writing-based appearance in 2017. (I will be
at all of the upcoming shows for ComplemenTerry
Designs… which should be incredible, but as
of this time will not include any of my published materials.)
for the late start to the month. Chaos at play. Some material
to cover today… some new material to post over the next few days…
busy, busy, busy.

last writing appearance for 2017 this weekend.
On Sunday, November 12th, I’ll be in Liverpool, New York. It’s
an author and artist meet-and-greet at the Liverpool

to meet some fascinating people, perhaps buy a book or two (and

and winter is approaching.
what do you do to warm up? Is it a cup of cocoa? Using the fireplace?
A comforter and good book?
that’s it… quick little start to the month. Give me a day or two,
and we’ll get to more news, release A Parkside View,
and maybe even have a new essay to share. For now, let’s end this
post with a link I’ve had in my notes for a bit…
fun read about a few things… mainly how they
started, along with where they have and haven’t changed.
