Reading: Bar Thalia

On December 3, I was lucky enough to read at the Irish American Writers & Artists Inc. Salon at Bar Thalia. The Upper West Side of New York City location was a perfect setting. Everyone in attendance was so generous and thoughtful to have listened so closely to the reading. I was very happy to hear compliments and interest in Light of the Diddicoy, the first book in the Auld Irishtown trilogy.Image

Lots of friends and supporters showed as well and I am amazed at how far this effort has already come. From the simple idea to write a book about my own family’s history as Irish American in Brooklyn to spending hours at the Chambers Street Municipal Archives alone in downtown Manhattan to inking a contract with Three Rooms Press and now reading the work in front of friends and strangers. It’s been a long ride, but the road is filled with great opportunity Final Diddicoy coverahead.

Light of the Diddicoy has sold close to 40 pre-order copies already. With it being three months out until publication, that is a good start to create a buzz, and in this business a buzz can generate lots of interest. If you are interested in the concept behind Light of the Diddicoy, please do not hesitate to pre-order now at a reduced price and let your friends and family know as well. It’s a great book to buy for your father, brother or boyfriend for Christmas.

Here is a link to the page for: Light of the Diddicoy.


There were some other readers there as well that were very talented. I would encourage everyone with an Irish background or not to check out the wonderfully talented people at the salons held by the Irish American Writers & Artists Inc. They meet every other Tuesday night at Bar Thalia and the Cell Theatre. Here is a link for information:
