Book Launch! January 18, 2013

Pinch me! I still can’t believe that was real. Ede and Dan from Joh Bale Book Company were gracious enough to host the party for the release of my novel, THE NAMESAKE. Though it was a chilly January night, it was a truly fantastic evening. I was awed and honored by the turnout, which included family, friends and folks from just about every stage of my life. Here are some photos. Thanks to my wife Janet for some of them, and my friends Terry Laslo and Andrea Petrario for others!

Here’s a link to the John Bale site: Check them out!


  1. It was a wonderful, wonderful evening! So glad I was there to be part of this great event!


  2. Indeed it was! And it wouldn’t have been half as wonderful without you!


  3. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it
    much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work!
