Hi Everyone!

This weekend is the 8th annual Baltimore Book Fesitval. It is an all day affair originaly scheduled from Friday to Saturday, 12 - 9 pm.

Unfortunatly Fridays events have been cancelled due to the approaching storm. However Saturday and Sunday are still on.

I will be at the iuniverse both signing copies of my first book Does God Have a Hero? : Meditations on Compassionate Living. I will be signing from 3 to 4. If anyone is close by and would like to drop in and say hi....I would love to see you!


Wish me luck!

Eric

I found this link, but I don't know your real name to know who I am looking for if I should come...you can email the info if you would like.

ok I did another search and have your name now so I know who I would be looking for. Now to know where to locate you on that day...if you know.

I wish I WERE in that area, Eric, I would certainly enjoy coming by to purchase a copy of your book and getting it autographed...I hope all goes well and that everything "clears up" accordingly after the storm!  Even though I'm no where near it - I've seen what tornados can do...and for right now, that's storm enough for me!

Congratulations!

I love that book title! When will it be available in Colorado? LOL, but of course, I'll be wanting an autographed copy.
GOOD LUCK, HAVE FUN, STAY DRY!

Thank you everyone for your well wishes but the Baltimore Book Festival has been cancelled due to street flooding in the city.
This was a major event and there was too much planning to be able to simply reschedule. So it has been cancelled untill next year.

I am due to release my 5th volume of poetry soon...so by next year I will be promotinga new book as well. As I told a dear friend...no oppurtunity is ever lost!

Thanks again.

Love,
Eric

Dear Eric, I am so sorry to hear that the Festival could not be postponed and that it was just cancelled!

But it is great to know that you are serenely looking forward to further opportunities and to learn that you will publish soon your fifth poetry book. Can't wait to possess it! All of your books are true gems of beauty and wisdom.

Hugs. Margherita

A massive congratulations on all your successes though m friend! You are so deserving of your success. I'm so pleased to hear you're not only in print, but are on

I'm so sorry it didn't go as planned, but i'm sure you're just as happy.
