25th Anniversary 4

Thank you all for the kind and generous response!  PayPal should be up and running tomorrow for those that would like to pre-order an autograph copy of A Girl From the Hill.  Or Email me at pattymitch66@gmail.com and I will provide instructions on how to make a payment by check.

Apparently Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Balboa Press are all offering the book now too, but you’ll save shipping costs and get an autograph copy if you buy through me.

The positive response from you all overwhelms me! Thank  you with all my heart.  My Mom is quite excited too by the way.  A nice dividend …

By the way, the folks will be celebrating their 67th anniversary on Monday May 6th.  The picture here is from their 25th Anniversary party in 1971.  My mother always loved her Gardenia’s.

Today my Dad had to go to the hospital.  He’s home safe and sound, but he fell early this morning trying to get out of bed.  My parents worked together to get him up, him crawling on the floor and my mother sitting in a bedroom chair to weigh it down so he could use it to climb up.  I wonder if in their wildest dreams in 1971 if they ever imagined they’d have to endure such struggles as they did today.  At least they work well together as a team – they have certainly had enough practice.  Love you both.

A Girl From the Hill – Coming to a Book Store and Web Site Near You– Soon!

cover pic.jpegI am very excited to have just put the finishing touches on A Girl From the Hill: My Mother’s Journey from Italian Girl to American Woman. I will be sending my final galley signoff tomorrow morning and the book will officially be going “to print.”

Even though I’m a bit sick of looking at it, I hope you all won’t be. More details to follow, but if I use the great service and productivity of Balboa Press to date, I hope that we’ll be launching by the end of May/beginning of June. Oh yes, of course I will keep you all posted!

A huge huge thanks to everyone who has helped me get this far, including my parents, who are doing much better health-wise, and are slowly trying to exert some level of independence. Even though I get frustrated when my father decides to drive to the barbershop in the rain, I am so relieved to see a smile on his face, and to hear his corny jokes. I am so blessed.
