I had a release party for Blooming Greed last night at a local watering hole. That might not describe this very successful local restaurant and bar. Callahan’s Pub is a place you want to be on St. Patrick’s Day if you want loud music, beer, and crowds. They have more beers on tap than I have ever seen and don’t recognize most of them. But on a regular Saturday night I had reserved a table for 15 (come and go) and bought appetizers. It was a fun time. They have great food and service. I got to see old friends, even though we still had snow on the ground and a pandemic in the air.
I always forget to take pictures. One friend and my daughter took some and as always, I was pumped. Showing off my book to some of the best people in the world, will do that to me.
The friends were people from my working days and my writing club. I have a book signing at Putnam 6, a local bookstore in my hometown, on the 24th also. Maybe a different group of people will come by my table. Chloe, the owner is always gracious.
I’ve had two books release in the last six months. It never seems to fail that they come out in bunches. But I am always working on another (or two). I need to decide which one to finish next.
Support your local artists and buy their wares in this time of pandemic. We are all in this together.
