This Thursday is the first of two local book signings for my new book, Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, Volume II. The first volume is still ranked in the top 1/2 of 1 percent of all paperbacks on Amazon.com, and is also selling in the UK and Continental Europe as well as occasionally in other countries. It has received top reviews by experts in the field of writing, teaching and speaking, as well as the average English speaker, and has been used in helping others learn our language, and selected for numerous libraries. I am very proud of this success, and looking forward to great sales from the second volume which picks up where the other one left off, with meanings and origins of over 1,000 new phrases and proverbs. If you haven’t bought the second one yet (or even the first one), or know someone who would appreciate one for a gift. if you are close enough, come on out Thursday, or go to Amazon or my site at stclairpublications.com where a discount is given when ordering both!
I now have details to the second of my two local library signings of my Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions books, original volume and brand new Volume II.
The first one will be Thursday, October 20 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM at Magness Library in historic downtown McMinnville, Tennessee. This is an exclusive event.
The second will include me along with two other authors in an event at Morrison Public Library in the center of Morrison, Tennessee.between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on Saturday November 5.
At both signings I will have available copies of both books at special discount prices, plus I will be available for photo ops and questions about my work. These books have received high critical acclaim and the first book is in libraries, public schools and Universities across America in the UK and Continental Europe. They are different because of the thousands of hours which went into research over six years to produce as accurate an account of origins and changes through the years as possible, not just cute stories like some books contain. I hope tp see many friends and make new ones!
