To all our wonderful readers and followers. Great news!
It’s with a great deal of pride and excitement that I announce that Bondcliff Books, a regional publisher that specializes in books about The White Mountains, will be publishing my first book in May, 2013!
Tentatively titled, The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie, here’s our official website: www.52withaview.com
And here’s the official blurb:
“The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie is a book about some special mountains, a peak-by-peak trail guide to help hikers learn about and explore one of New Hampshire’s least-known mountain summit lists, the 52 With a View.
But the book is also a personal memoir and travelogue of two friends, a seasoned middle-aged climber and an energetic fourth-grader, as they set off on a bonding journey that will change both their lives.
The book is a moving personal account of what happened when the author and his wife unexpectedly became part-time caretakers of 10-year-old twins. Bondcliff Books is proud to present a hiking book unlike any other.
Part trail guide, part memoir, The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie is a journey through some of the state’s least-known mountains, but is also a meditation on the transformative power of friendship, commitment and the many meanings of family.”
The official website is up and running, and we hope you’ll join us by following along on our journey. We hope to finish the list by Nov. 5, and as we summit each mountain, the website will offer a short excerpt and photo from that hike as a way of keeping our followers up-to-date on our adventure.
At this early stage we’re asking for you to support this project by spreading the word and subscribing now via email to the site in the same way you’ve shown us your support by subscribing to this site! Simply go to the site, type in your email under the “Subscribe by email” tab on the right and click enter. You’ll get an email asking you to confirm your subscription. Once you do, you’re all set to get updates and special posts from us as this project moves forward.
Onward and upward! Over the course of the next six months, this site, EKP, will continue on as a personal blog about our other hiking and travel adventures. Meanwhile, the 52withaview.com site will document Dan and Janelle’s journey though the mountain list, then will become the official site for marketing and book signings, etc. when the book comes out.
M and I have appreciated your support and interest and we hope this new project will be just as interesting and fun!
