BROOKFIELD COUNTRY WINE AND SPIRITS AND SKELETONS A PERFECT MATCH

5 Nov

 

The display Brookfield Country Wine & Spirits Owner Louis put together!

 

When Skeletons first came out, I wanted to look at some creative places at which to sell it—I didn’t want to go just the bookstore route. My neighborhood wine shoppe, Brookfield Country Wine & Spirits, seemed like a good place to try it out.

Owner Louis Venezia did a terrific display with Halloween-themed products, and I’m happy to report that they’ve sold more copies than I would’ve expected…every time I stop in there, they need more books! Indeed…Spirits and Skeletons make a great fit!

Brookfield Country Wine & Spirits is located in the ShopRite Plaza at 143 Federal Road in Brookfield, Connecticut. Their staff is knowledgeable, their prices are very reasonable, and they have a huge selection of wines. I won’t buy my libations from anyplace else, these guys are so great. They also have daily wine tastings and other events, so you may want to check them out. Their website is http://www.brookfieldwine.com/

Here’s some pretty cool pix from the displays Wayne has up in his store.

My mask. I tried to go for a creepy doll Day of the Dead look. Not very talented in the art area am I.

THE PARANORMAL AND THE PEN: MY INTERVIEW IN PARANORMAL, EH?

1 Nov

I was recently featured in the Canadian Facebook Group’s Paranormal, Eh? Interview series—Terry Konig interviews a paranormal celebrity or two every couple of weeks. In my interview, I discuss ghost stories (of course), what my fave paranormal shows are, and much more—including some writerly advice for those wanted to get published. You can join their group on FB and check it out here; once he gets a few more people after me, I’ll post the entire interview where everyone can read it for those of you who don’t wish to join his group. Here’s the link:
