Will You Be My Valentine?

My Dearest Readers,

It is with a bursting heart that I approach this Valentine's Day. Your overwhelming support of The Toll Road North has changed my life - and even though I tend to exaggerate, I promise you, I'm being truthful here.

Here's the thing about writing a book: you climb the virtual writing mountain and eventually make it to the top with a finished work. Then you have to decide to sit and enjoy the view, alone with your work, or leap from the mountaintop into the great unknown. Publishing was the free-fall. I had no idea how long it would go on, or where we would land.

Having the book land in your hands, and hearing how much you have loved it, was literally the most rewarding and humbling experience of my life.

Now that Valentine's Day is approaching, I'm hoping you will send me a Valentine - in a very specific and shamelessly self-promoting manner. My new goal is to have my book make it into that most hallowed of book places: Maine Public's All Books Considered. The new host, Bill Nemitz, is reviewing recommendations from listeners. Would you please be a recommender for me? Send your love for The Toll Road North by email to

Thank you, as always, for following The Toll Road North,
