Okay, so this might be a little late and I apologize for that, but on Halloween I had a book signing at the Sherwood House Museum. While I realize I might have benefitted from posting this prior to the event, I doubt it would have made much of a difference. I did a fair amount of advertising on Facebook and Instagram. A few friends and family showed up, as usual. I wonder what it's like to be a famous author. Oh, well. Thanks to those who were there!
Due to the Covid-19 virus I have been unable to set up a book signing for my latest book, Aftermath of the Manhattanville Incident. I apologize for this inconvenience. I had hoped to set up a nice arrangement displaying both books of the series together. I was even working on a photo book that was going to compliment the set. I have delayed with my completion of the photo book, since there is no hurry now. When it is completed, it will be available to purchase most likely directly through me. I have yet to set up a PayPal account for this website. Not sure if I ever will.
Contact me directly if you wish to obtain a signed copy of the book. It's okay if we don't know each other. I will respond with kindness. Thank you. Hope to see you soon maybe at a book signing!
On Friday, December 6, 2019, I will be doing a book signing/discussion at the Shanley Hotel for my latest novel, A Night at the Shanley Hotel. The times will be from 6 pm - 8 pm. A reservation at the hotel is not required to attend. Just show up and bring some money!
Books will go for $20 each.
Rooms are currently available, but will probably go fast, so contact the hotel if you wish to stay the night. I will not be staying over, but I am sure many will. There will be a paranormal investigation, after my event starting at around 8 pm.
The Shanley Hotel is located at 56 Main Street, Napanoch, NY. To make a reservation go to their website: The Haunted Shanley Hotel
On Halloween (October 31, 2019) at 12 PM I was interviewed by Phil Reisman on a radio show called "High Noon" on WVOX, 1460 AM. We discussed my books briefly, but mainly focused on my paranormal experiences and investigations with my team, Yonkers Ghost Investigators. Listen up, if you want. The recording is 51 minutes long. Please, leave your comments below.
So, I wrote a book about the Shanley Hotel. It's a haunted hotel I've been to numerous times. The book was originally a promise to former owner, Sal Nicosia. However, when Sal passed away, it became a tribute to his memory. Sal was a good friend of mine, so I wanted to do this book right. I tried a different publisher because the previous one I used was very expensive. This is going to be ironic, so be ready. The new publisher completed my book and did not tell me it was done. I found out when I searched for it on a whim and saw it was available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I contacted the publisher and they gladly informed me that my book was now available. No shit! They only needed to confirm my address, so they could send me my complimentary copy. I waited and waited, but it never came. Guess what? They went out of business. That meant no more printed copies would be made. Great. I was able to order a few through the online vendors mentioned before. Eventually, I decided to just republish the book using a different publisher. Here comes the ironic part. I used my previous publisher that was too expensive. It was the only company I could rely up0n. I had another publisher I was considering, but they declared bankruptcy. Great. Anyway, it looks like the book will get a second chance. Above is the original cover. Below is the new cover. What do you think? The first edition was only available in paperback and as an e-book, while the new one will be available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book formats. It will also cost more than the first edition. No surprise there.
This is the link to a newspaper called "The Impact" published by Mercy College. I was interviewed for this article in October of 2018. We discussed my books and my team, the Yonkers Ghost Investigators.
Please, join me for two Special Halloween tours at Sherwood House Museum dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe on Sunday, October 28, and Sunday, November 4, from 1pm-4pm on both days. Our historic rooms will feature tributes to several of the famous author's poems and dark tales. Plus, as an extra treat, I will dress as Edgar Allan Poe for the first weekend. For the second weekend I will do a book signing in the Weed Cottage for my books, Ghosts and Legends of Yonkers and The Manhattanville Incident: An Undead Novel. Please, join us for both weekends and bring your friends! Trick or Treaters are welcome! We will have candy!
I was fortunate enough for my book, The Manhattanville Incident: An Undead Novel, to be displayed at Book Expo America this past weekend at the Jacob Javits Center. Sorry, this was posted after the event was over, but I had a busy weekend. Here is a photo of the book at the Okir Publishing table. I will be using that company for future publications. I need to test the waters, so to speak. Can't be tied down to one publisher. Not yet.
On Friday, March 2, 2018 at 7 pm I will be doing a book signing at the Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site. The event will take place on the second floor in the Gothic Chamber. I will be signing and selling copies of my new novel, The Manhattanville Incident: An Undead Novel. The book is a modern take on the zombie apocalypse, which begins in NYC. I hope you will join me.

If you have any comments for me, then this is the place to leave them. Try to be civil and I will do the same. We don't want to corrupt the kiddies out there.
