Giving Thanks...

Suddenly it's nearly Thanksgiving. Guess this holiday season has crept up on me. I've been pretty busy this past week nursing a bad cold, preparing for the family feast on Thursday and, yes, more book stuff. 

Thanks to all who stopped by to say hello and buy a book at the X-Communication booth at the Festival of Trees on Saturday and Sunday. It was a festive and busy event. 

I'm doing some more book signings at events this weekend and hope you'll have a chance to stop by and see me. I'll be at Walden Books (Miller Hill Mall) on Black Friday–the Friday following Thanksgiving–from 2 - 4 pm. Then on Saturday, November 29th, I'll be at Northern Lights Book Store in Canal Park from noon to 1 pm. On Sunday, November 30th, you'll find me at The Bookstore At Fitgers (Fitger's Brewery complex) from noon until 2 pm.  And...just for the record, the 30th of November is also my 40th wedding anniversary date. 

In December I'll be at Barnes and Noble (Saturday, December 6th from 3 - 4 pm); The Bookstore at Fitgers one more time (Sunday, December 14th from noon - 2 pm); and Grandma's Marketplace in Canal Park ( Saturday, December 20th from 1 - 2 pm). 

For those of you living in Grand Rapids or the Iron Range communities, you'll find me and Tony Dierckins, my publisher and author of Crossing the Canal, visiting area book sellers throughout the day on Saturday, December 13th. 

Hope to see you at one of these events! In the meantime…please stay tuned as I intend to share more of my musings with you on this blog. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
