I had my book signing event this past Saturday and it was a terrific success. I gave a presentation on what’s in the book and the process of getting a book published. Here are some pictures.
The Astronomical Society of Southern New England will be hosting my presentation and book signing event. I will be talking about the process of writing and publishing a book and afterward will be signing books.
The ASSNE is a vibrant organization with an active membership involved in amateur astronomy. I am honored that they will be hosting the event.
It is at the Carpenter Museum on 4 Locust Avenue in Rehoboth Mass.
The date is February 10 at 7pm.
My telescope book is published and getting wonderful 5 star reviews on amazon. I am proud of this and a bit humbled by it. It was a wonderful project and it is catching on. I just did a radio interview with the famous Dr. Sky. He is a radio and television personality who bring the wonders of the sky to the people. He has interviewed a stunning array of brilliant
and famous people on his show and he has appeared on many other shows including
a weekly installment on Coast to Coast with George Noory. Dr. Sky is the premiere Ambassador
between the wonders of the universe and the people.

Telescopes, and astronomy hold an allure. There is an accompanying sense of exploration and discovery that comes with using a telescope. So, they are often featured on science websites. Rightfully so. And one prominent science website has picked up my book and written an article about it and about the wonders of the night sky. You can read the article on their website here.
I love the headline!
If you are interested in the book you can get it from my publishers website here:

I have been working with a mead maker on a new batch of mead. We have been coming up with a plan to create a mead company. Our plan for now is to ferment the mead and give it away at a long sword competition coming up in April. This way we can talk to people and see how they feel about mead – give out free samples and see what they think about it. I will keep you posted about this.
I was so excited to receive the first copy of my new book! Yay! I had to do an unboxing video showing the book. You can watch it on youtube here: https://youtu.be/d3jRQfua8mw
It took me seven years to write it and just a few days I go I finished the final edit.Yay!
I am so proud of this book. It was a lot of work. Now I need to find a literary agent and it’s needs a cover design. I will keep you updated on this.
One interesting thing when it comes to writing a novel. This is true for me anyway. But my notes and ancillary materials end up eventually to be twice the size of the actual novel. It is finished at 79k Words. But all the various supporting materials, notes and more have to be at least twice that.
I am Proud to announce that my latest book is now available for pre-sale on Amazon. This has been a wonderful project for me. It all came out of my love for astronomy and telescopes. My desire is that this book helps other people also discover the joy to be had with a small telescope.
See it With a Small Telescope – 101 Cosmic Wonders including Planets, Moons, Comets, Galaxies, Nebulae, Star Clusters and More.

I have a big list of castles in America that I want to visit. I have already done some of them. This one is not too far away being in Providence RI. It is a very big armory. And it is currently not being used. It needs to be renovated and that is going to be expensive.
The Cranston Street Armory
It was built in 1907 and it has been used continually until recently, mostly by various military units like Military Police , Coast Guard and National guard.
There are two things about this Fortress that make it stand out. First off it is enormous. Very big for an armory. If I remember correctly the main area in the middle ( a large hall) is over 2 acres in size. One of the pictures here shows what appears to be two structures, one on the left and one on the right. But those are just the towers on each end. The trees block our view of the center of the structure.
The second remarkable thing about this Fortress is the beautiful yellow/orange stonework. It is remarkable.
