I am extremely pleased to announce a book signing event for "Sinner's Ride"!! My friends at The Arctic Circle/Finns of New York have been able to secure the rooftop garden at The Delancey in New York City for an event to include happy hour, a reading, a question and answer period followed by a raffle and mingling. I am SO EXCITED!!!
The Delancey is a beautiful dual-level site on the Lower East Side of Manhattan featuring a rooftop garden. We were so lucky that it was available for our event. Check out their website: www.thedelancey.com/gallery.html. So may I respectfully suggest you purchase a copy now and have it autographed at the event?
And here are directions:
The Delancey is located on the North East side of Delancey Street between Clinton and Attorney, at the base of the Williamsburg bridge.
Take the J.M or Z train to the Essex Street stop or the F train to Delancey Street stop. Please refer to www.hopstop.com for more details.
From Brooklyn, take the first right off of the Williamsburg Bridge onto Clinton Street.
From Uptown Manhattan, take 2nd Ave. to Houston St., turn right on Ridge street, and right onto Delancey. The Delancey is between Attorney and Clinton Streets.
With regard to the raffle: Sinner's Ride is a heartwrenching story involving sexual assault and what happens mentally and emotionally when such a traumatic event takes place; one that occurs more often than we care to imagine. So many women suffer this malice at the hands of men they think they can trust and oftentimes they find themselves feeling that there is no escaping the situation. Some women are lucky. They get out and they survive it. Those women have friends, community leaders and others who lend a hand. There are organizations that offer support and shelter to the women and often the children of these women when they have nowhere to turn.
Some are not so lucky. My intention is to bring awareness to this monster and hope that I can help someone. For that reason, The Arctic Circle and I came up with the idea of a raffle.
We are on the cusp of what promises to be a sweltering summer. Therefore, we will be auctioning off a basket of summer goodies, including a signed, hardcover copy of "Sinner's Ride". As an added incentive for participants, we will not be placing a price tag on the raffle tickets, instead we ask that participants give what they can and all proceeds of the raffle will be donated to a women's shelter.
Also, I am ironing out some technological issues with the idea of streaming the event LIVE for those of you who can not attend personally, so details on that will soon follow.
And the ride continues.....
