Places I’ve Visited – 2016

These are the places I’ve visited (real or virtual) around the world so far in 2016.

March 6 – I was to be one of the three local authors at the Brockville Public Library, 23 Buell Street, Brockville, ON on March 6th, but the health Gods intervened and saw fit to fell me with the cold/flu that is sweeping through my place of employment.

Sorry to have disappointed anyone who came out to see me, but I think you’d prefer disappointment over this cold/flu (the dreaded lurgy).

May 7th, 20162016 Friendly Circle Showcase

This has been a good event for me in previous years when it comes to sales. This year, I only sold two books – enough to make back the cost of my table. What books did I sell? Well, drum roll please… 2 copies of The Secret of Hillcrest House.

While the sales may have been down at the event, I discovered that I had sold 3 kindle copies of the book the same day softened the blow.
