Book Signings and Retail Locations

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Sales of both novels: UNBRIDLED: A TALE OF A DIVORCE RANCH and my latest: THE GHOST PAINTER have been going well, thanks to the three book signings I’ve done recently. The first was under the auspices of Western Writers of America, who held their annual convention in Albuquerque where authors did book signings at Barnes & Noble at Coronado Mall! Next I did a reading/signing of THE GHOST PAINTER at Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe, and another signing at Hastings, in Santa Fe’s DeVargas Center. As well as these locations in Santa Fe, TGP can also be found at Garcia Street Books, Travel Bug, BODY, Palace of the Governors Bookstore, Double Take and A Step Back In Time. Albuquerque’s Treasure House Books & Gifts (in Old Town) also has THE GHOST PAINTER and UNBRIDLED, as does Moby Dickens Bookshop and The Brodsky Bookshop in Taos, New Mexico! TGP is now in the Phoenix area: The Book Rack in Mesa and Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe! If none of these fit your “out and about” list, you can buy both at! Happy reading!

How to Write a Novel at 83 … or 13

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Back in the days of vaudeville, Gypsy Rose Lee and her mom found themselves booked into a third rate theater specializing in the dubious art of stripping. This was comically dramatized in the 1962 film version where the young “Gypsy” is introduced to the inner sanctum of stripping by a trio of strippers, each insisting, in her own inimitable way, that to succeed “You Gotta Have A Gimmick.” “Gimmick” is yesterday’s word for today’s all-purpose “hook,” as in: if you want to guarantee stardom on the world stage “You Gotta Have a Hook.” But in vaudeville “hook” meant if you gave a lousy performance somebody from backstage would wield a big, long hook and reel you right off the proscenium. There went your rent money and your reputation in show business. Not so today. Have a great hook and you’re in the running for whatever the media demands.


Excerpt from “The Ghost Painter”

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

(I’ve been busy working on my second novel, The Ghost Painter, a paranormal thriller set in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The following is an excerpt in which the heroine — a New York artist — attends her first Santa Fe art opening.)

The level of chatter at the Cross of the Martyrs Gallery was rapidly rising. Too many bodies in too small a space, thought she, as she surveyed the crowded room while holding a small plastic glass in one hand and balancing some kind of tiny black-olive-cream-cheese-on-puff-pastry-thingamajig in the other. Never had she seen such a conglomeration of costume “get-ups” in one place without the occasion being Halloween. Nor had she seen so many females running the gamut of southwestern fashion choices. There was everything from Indian-style velvet broomstick skirts in rich colors of ruby-red, aqua, gold, and green, all topped off with high-necked or off-the-shoulder satin blouses, a preponderance of silver-and-turquoise jewelry, and fancy cowboy boots. Some flaunted their slim figures with sexy, skin-tight jeans, fringed sueded vests, and cowboy hats, along with the usual Indian jewelry. The men were no less flamboyant in their Western-style shirts, jeans with silver-buckled belts, high-heeled, alligator-skin boots, ostentatious hunks of turquoise-and-silver bolo ties, and the obsequiousness of the occasional Stetson. What a show, she thought. As for the main event, because of the crowd, Angelina hadn’t been able to get close enough to view the paintings hanging on the white-washed walls since she’d arrived.
