It is official - I will have a new book coming out in about a year. Last week in the mail I received my official, signed contract from the History Press. I'll be rounding up my then and now articles from Our Towne Bethlehem and other unpublished items I have written and putting them together in a book. 32,000+ words and 60 pictures. Yikes! It is a lot of work but I am excited to make the articles available in a more permanent format. Now, they are out for the month with Our Town and then they disappear from print, and from their website. I'll probably include some odds and ends from this blog as well. So wish me luck. September 1 is my first big deadline. We're looking to bring the book out in the spring of 2016.
And no that is not me on the right. That's Katie Ladd working in the Callanan's office in South Bethlehem.
