Future meeting schedule for 2013
Breaking Out Of Fire Behind Bars by Breaking Into Amanda's Room
Chuck Miceli's journey toward publishing his Paranormal Mystery, "Amanda's Room," literally began behind bars in 1979. Along the way, his quest took him through a rash of deadly fires, then deep into the anthracite coalmines of northeastern Pennsylvania, the lives of injured angels, and a land where everything is the opposite of what it seems. He finally ended up in Rip Van Winkle's Catskill Mountains. The most challenging part of his journey, however, was navigating the complex world of writing, editing, publishing, and marketing his book.
Chuck published Amanda's Room in May of 2012. In his presentation, he will review highlights of his journey from the original idea through editing, publishing, marketing and sales at his personal appearances, and will cover ten critical lessons for any writer he learned along the way. Chuck joined CAPA in 2010 and participated in the BIG E bookstore project in 2012 with wonderful success. He has done book readings and signings throughout New England and in Pennsylvania and has been the subject of newspaper and magazine articles and TV interviews. He appeared on the WTNH's "Connecticut Style" program with Teresa LaBarbera and on WCTV's "Meet the Author" with Jason Alster.
