Greetings Friends-

The Wentworth Book Tour is in full force. The Wentworth story is reaching a larger and larger audience.

The recent walking tour was a great event with about thirty attendees and a great day in Paterson. The Paterson Rotary was a great audience. Thank you all for coming.

People ask about sales. Sales have been brisk. Amazon sales for The Life and Times of Fred Wesley Wentworth have (on good days broken) into the top 50 books is certain rather erudite fields. Overall, I recently was in the top 25,000 on their best seller lists! Me and 24,999 of my closest author friends.

And, there is more going on_

This Friday night, November 23rd  you can continue to digest your turkey while listening to WBGO’s Jersey Journal. I was interviewed and the show will air at 7:30 pm.  Jazz 88.3 fm is a great station and a personal favorite of mine. A link to the interview will be available on the website later on.

Our last event, the Book Launch event was a great success. Thanks to all of you who made it! It was great to be with you.

I was especially happy that the great granddaughter of Jacob Fabian — Amanda Fabian — brought her mother and children to the event. Fabian was Wentworth’s most significant client and the two became good friends.
