Monday, 31 August 2009 would have been my brother, John S. Bond's 62nd birthday, so my husband, Dion, my sister, Carol Lee Harris (the editor and "mastermind" for the publishing of the book for my brother, posthumously) and I thought that it would be the perfect day to have the Borders Bookstore in Ithaca set up the display for his book, "Blood Kin". The Sales Manager at the store, Linda Hendrix, even came in on her day off to accomodate us, (what a sweetheart!) so everything went very smoothly!
Carol Lee brought both soft cover and hard cover copies of "Blood Kin" with her, and we are hoping that his book will sell out and need to be replaced before our scheduled return to town next month. Wouldn't that be great?
Dion took a couple of pictures to show you what the book looks like on display, plus here's a close-up of the one with the "Borders Local Author" sticker on it. I think that it turned out really great! Hopefully, the next time that I report on my brother's book, I'll have some more good news for you.

Until next time...stay safe, stay well, and may God bless you all.
