Bad News / Good News


The bad / sad news is that my favorite local bookstore, Consigned Books in Ironton, OH, is closing at the end of this month. A rent increase has driven them out of their current location.

The good news is that owner Cindy Black plans to take some time off from running a bookshop and then to open a new store in a more economically vibrant area sometime in the future. I look forward to attending the grand opening of the her new bookstore!

Great “HPD” Book Launch

Gloria and I had a great time this past Saturday at our favorite local bookstore, Consigned Books in Ironton, OH. They hosted the book launch of “HPD”. It was the most successful book launch I’ve ever had, and I sold and signed the most books ever. Thanks so much to Olivia and Cindy Black for organizing this event.

Gloria made homemade cookies all attendees greatly enjoyed and Consigned Books provided water, coffee, and sandwiches for everyone.
