'Ghosts of Allendale' Is at the Printer

Ghosts Covers_Final

I am happy to announce that all the pre-production work on my new book "Ghosts of Allendale" is done, and it's almost ready to go to the printer.

The book, illustrated by 14 talented artists from Northern Highlands Regional High School, but it will be hard cover, 40 pages. It will feature not only the Revolutionary ghost tale that I cooked up and those nifty illustrations, but also brief sections on Allendale Founding Father John Fell, the Fell House, the Celery Farm Natural Area.

I am publishing the book through my litte publishing company, In the Presence of Nature Books. I plan to have the book available for the holiday gift-giving season.

The book, printed in full color, will sell for $21.95.

Profits from the book will benefit the Fell House and the Lillian and Stiles Thomas Scholarship Fund at Northern Highlands. Reserve a copy by e-mailing me here.
