When I'm not delving into historical research, I'm planning a character's demise.

Bringing in the New Year

Office of the Wyoming County, NY Historian (My day job)

So here it is another new year. At the moment I am figuring out a blogging app so I can blog on the go from my phone. Now all I need to do is figure out how to save as draft so it doesn't post until I am ready. The smart phone is one of the many new things to add to my "what have I accomplished" list for 2014.  I must say I did pretty well.

I reissued a book in April that I published with my friend back in 2001---a historical true  crime set in the 1850s. Sort of brought it into the new world of publishing. Big learning curve to learn how to format correctly. It can be found in the usual formats at the usual places. It is doing really well. As long as it sells a few everyday I'm happy. You can find it at on Amazon in paperback and Kindle edition, and at Barnes & Noble in paperback and  NookBook formats, as well as on Smashwords (ePub only). You can download a free sample (mobi, epub or PDF) at Noisetrade books.

I also signed a contract with The History Press to publish my book on Indian Land Title in New York State. I am quite excited about this as it's not always easy to find a publisher for local non-fiction. They have some wonderful local history books depicting just about everywhere in the USA. My book will be out sometime after May in 2015 based on my deadlines.

The other big accomplishment of last year was that I quit smoking. Yep, I've been ciggy free since September 25th. Toss in the birth of another grandchild and the marriage of my daughter, and all in all, it's been a good year!

Waiting for Harvey
4 of 5 stars
Alone, in a cabin in the woods, with a ghost. Who could ask for more in a ghost story? Harvey starts right out with a hint of foreboding in a conversation between brothers John and Erik. Already my curiosity is roused as to what happened...

I randomly downloaded this on my iPad when I hit the wrong button being a bumble fingers, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've never read fanfic before. It was pretty good. But like many other people, it still can't compare to J. K. Row...
