Copies Soon to be Available of The Fowlerville Chronicles

Since I've sold all of the original printing of The Fowlerville Chronicles and, since I have a few copies left of Through the Eyes of a Country Editor, I decided to reprint additional copies of the first book.

If you would like to reserve a copy of The Fowlerville Chronicles, please let me know.  The book is $38 and Through the Eyes of a Country Editor is $30.  If you purchase both at the same time, your cost is $60.

2014 Farmers' Market

I will have a booth at the Fowlerville Farmers' Market this Friday, May 30, from 3-7 pm.

Come and check out all the books, blank books and journals, and postcards I have to offer.  And, make sure you have enough time to wander the entire market.

If you want to check out the blank books and journals before heading to the market, click here for Path Publishing and meander through all of the pages.  All items will be $7, not the amounts shown on the website.  Plus, by purchasing them at the market, you will save on shipping.

Also, The Fowlerville Chronicles has been sold out but I am taking prepaid orders for a reprint.  If I can get at least 10 orders, I will reprint this book.  Sign up and payment can be made at the market tomorrow or by contacting me personally.

Support our local vendors and come spend money with us!!

2014 Index for The Fowlerville Chronicles

Hello readers --

It has been a while since I've done any posting for Fowlerville, and I apologize.  There are some exciting things in the works and, as soon as I can announced, a post will be generated.

For now, please check out the tab "Chronicles" and scroll down.  You will find 28 pages.  Seventeen of the pages are an index for The Fowlerville Chronicles and the remaining eleven show a listing of the illustrations, photographs, maps, etc. in the book.

I'd like to thank Mark Mullinaux from the Brighton District Library for getting this put together for the book.  Any of you having a copy may find this a quick resource when looking for a particular name, event, or subject.

2014 Path Publishing

Path Publishing has entered a new era of self-publishing and would love to have you, as faithful readers, to check it out.  Head to www.pathpublish.com for journals for gardening, advice, kidisms, happy thoughts, and usernames and passwords.  As time goes along, more journals will be made available.

Path Publishing LLC has now put together The Fowlerville Chronicles, Through the Eyes of a Country Editor, and various family history books.

Eventually, an added service will be to design and print journals (of quantities of 25 or more) for special events.  Are you taking a group trip where a unique gift would be to give everyone a journal to fill their experiences?  Path Publishing can design it.

Be sure to check out www.pathpublish.com for ideas and to order!

2014 Good News and Bad News

Hello All -

It has been a while since I've posted -- so busy I am working on a historical fiction piece -- but I did want everyone to know I have now sold out The Fowlerville Chronicles.

Thank you to all who purchased copies.  I hope you enjoy the book for years to come.

I still have a few copies of Through the Eyes of a Country Editor if anyone is interested in purchasing a copy.  Look to the right of this blog and you will find information on buying a copy.  I also have postcards you can purchase.

Never fear, I will get back to posting historical articles once the fictional writing slows down!

1995 Baseball

I absolutely love when someone walks up to me, hands me either photos or memoriabilia, and wonders if I would like to add it to the website.  The answer is always yes!  Yesterday, I was given three photographs, which will be added to the Fowlerville Historical Collection at the village hall, but first, I wanted to show you, my readers.
 
After doing a little research, the first is a baseball card for Al Kaline.  The second picture is how he looked in 1993 when he came to Fowlerville.  If you check out the photograph, you can see "Gehringer Field" hooked to the chain-link fence.  That field is where the Fowlerville High School baseball team plays their games.

 
The next photograph is a young Tom Brookens when he was a Detroit player, and following that is a more current-day photograph.  Not much has changed!


And then, the last picture given to me had a bunch of markings on the front and then the following on the back:
 
~~Feb. 1999 Tiger Fantasy Game, Marchand Stadium, Lakeland, Florida, Leon Vercruysse, Batting; Mickey Lolich, Pitching; Alan Trammell, Catching.
~~Rare Picture:  Lolich and Trammell never played together (different eras) (besides Trammell is a SS, not a catcher); Darrell Evans, 2nd Base; Jason Thompson, 1st Base; Al Kaline, right field; Pitch fouled off homeplate.

How cool is all of this!
