At long last, after nine years of work, my second book, Never a Dull Moment, is in print! Within its 160 pages are 32 different vignettes and over 120 photographs describing the people and landscape of the southern Adirondacks. Patients, physicans, friends, Adirondack characters and legends are all to be found in stories that will entertain, amuse or amaze the reader.
If you are interested in the book, please review this link to Andy Flynn's excellent article in the North Creek News-Enterprise about my experience publishing my own book at this link: http://www.newsenterprise.org/news/2013/oct/15/indian-lake-doctor-launch-second-book/. He does a great job summarizing the ordeal and the motivation for putting hundreds of hours into this project.
The book is off to a great start before it has even been distributed to regional stores, which hopefully will happen before the holiday season. over 550 copies have been sold or ordered!
By November 19th the book should be available at the Chapman Museum and Glens Falls Hospital gift shops in Glens Falls, Miller Art & Frame in Warrensburg, Hudson River Trading Company in North Creek, the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, and soon at Pine's Hardware in Indian Lake. I plan on selling at the Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs also. You can also order one on Amazon.com or directly from me by contacting me directly. Just click on the "contact" tab above and send me an email with your questions and order information.
