Book Signing Event

Ellen Roth Cover (4)I’m having a book signing event at the Pitt Book Store on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, from  12:00 noon to 1 p.m.

My talk will be brief and lively focusing on what inspired Ten Fingers Touching and my collaboration with Steve Fine, editor, who is an instructor in the English Department at the University of Pittsburgh, and John Blumen, the master illustrator who hails from Brentwood.

The Pitt Book Store, now known as The University Store on Fifth, is located at 4000 Fifth Avenue in Oakland between University Place and Thackeray Ave.

Please join me for an hour that promises to be fun or just stop in for a few minutes!  It would be great to see you!

Happy Valentine’s Day

cover-heartIf you’re still thinking about a Valentine’s Day gift for someone special in your life, please consider my fairy tale for grown-ups.  It’s a fun read that’s more permanent than flowers and has fewer calories than cupcakes!  Furthermore, you would be supporting an independent book shop in Pittsburgh. Visit my order page for more information.

Ten Fingers Touching can also be purchased on Amazon.com.

As noted by blogger, Valerie Mitchell, “The true beauty of the story are the lessons about life and love that will linger after you’ve finished reading the book. Ten Fingers Touching is a wonderful bedtime story for adults”  (Sweeps 4Bloggers, 2/1/15).

Additionally, thank you for making my live chat sponsored by BookTrib and Godiva Chocolatier a great success! If you weren’t able to participate in the chat, you can watch it at your leisure here.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
