Galley update and the Schooner Roundup

Galleys are back up for Elena Bowman and Spencer Dane. Sorry for the delay, Elena.

The SCHOONER ROUNDUP, sponsored by the James B. Richarson Maritime Museum was in Cambridge last weekend with about 20 sailing craft docked at Long Wharf and around the creek. Ships from the eastern seaboard included the MYSTIC WHALER, MARYLAND LADY, and the barkentine PRIDE OF BALTIMORE.

Several of our local authors were on hand to sell books at the event and word has it sales were fairly brisk to those who flocked down to admire the ships. Andy Nunez was on hand with his TREASURE OF THE EASTERN SHORE, MYSTERIES OF THE EASTERN SHORE, and GHOSTS OF THE EASTERN SHORE along with some copies of his vampire novel CRIMSON NEED, and Beverly Lynch was there with WET AND HUNGRY, the story of a mid-Atlantic fisherman's adventures. Ann Foley, and other members of The Writers' Bloc were also there.

Local events and shows like this one can be a great venue for local authors to set up a book signing, especially if the books' subject matter will appeal to the audience as did the authors' works mentioned above. Check for what's available in your area.
