It’s been quite a while since I’ve been here, writing about anything going on in my world. That is because I was in Chicago covering the Chicago Film Festival for nearly all of October, at Bishop Hill with other authors, and am now getting ready to launch promotional things for my newest nonfiction book, “It Came From the ’70s: From The Godfather to Apocalypse Now.”

But, first, a look at the signing on October 30th, the day before Halloween, for the final “Ghostly Tales of Route 66” book in the trilogy of “Ghostly Tales of Route 66.”

Find me next on December 4th at Barnes & Noble at Northpark with my nonfcition movie book and stay tuned for news of some other local signings, with the possibility of winning movie passes if you purchase a book.

The young duckling doing the signing is granddaughter Ava, whose twin sister, Elise was off on an “enjoy and destroy” mission of Barnes & Noble at Northpark Mall in Davenport on October 30th.
