Beach Book Blast - Day 4

Hi Reader,

As they say, all good things must come to an end--but that doesn't make saying good bye any easier.  I'd love to remain in touch with you after the BBB ends. Please sign up for my email list or newsletter so I can keep you informed about the latest newss about St. Anne's Day and the upcoming release on my Christmas novel, A Shepherd's Song, where I write from the perspective of a young man--yes, I know, I need therapy!

For some stupid reason (my stupidity) the contest ended a day early for the T-shirt.  Sorry about that.  I will be notifying the winner tomorrow.  

Anyway, last night I hosted a launch party for the book at my home.  It was great fun and served some dishes that relate to the book, which I will be posting at a later date.  One of the fun things we did was to play Peg trivia.

For those of you who haven't yet read St. Anne's Day, Peg sometimes steals the show with her quips and antics.  We've played Anne trivia so I thought we'd give Peg equal time.  Look for Gerry trivia in a future post as well.
