Book Launch, March 17

It is with joy and excitement that I announce my decision to publish my memoir Nightfall in Verona via Orfea Books.   Click on this link: My glittering, lyrical memoir of a trip to Italy in 1973 is online in the here and now!  Please do weigh in on Chapter One:  subsequent chapters will be posted daily.

Orfea Books is the imprint for a collective press I founded in 2010.  The memoir will first be published chapter by chapter online at its very own home on Blogger.

I look forward to an interactive reading experience with you.  I'll publish the memoir in hard copy form in its entirety later this year.
