Blind Traveler Down a Dark River is the story of Douglas Abledan, a blind man using a GPS unit to navigate the world. One day the device malfunctions. He stumbles upon the scene of a murder about to take place. Due to the confusion caused by the failure of his technology, it isn’t until he hears a radio announcer reporting an accidental shooting that pieces start falling into place.

It would be nice to have a chat over coffee. Right now, although the month is just beginning, it is already jam packed. I work full time and juggle testing jobs for 5 different places. As of now, I am planning to attend the monthly Long Island Authors Gp meeting this Wednesday. It is held at the Bonwit Inn in Commack at 7pm. I am waiting for a phone call tomorrow to let me know if I have to attend a Traumatic Brain Injury meeting on Wed. evening or if I can attend the authors gp meeting. Why don't you take a look at their website and see if you would be interested in coming to Wednesday's meeting. If you are, we could meet 15 minutes before the meeting (it usually doesn't get underway till close to 7:30 so we will have time to talk). Let me know if this sounds good to you and if it does I will let you know by Tuesday evening if I will be going or if I have to go to the TBI meeting.
I belong to the Long Island Authors Group. Have you heard of them? Their website is www.longislandauthorsgroup.org . They meet once a month and to discuss each others books and ideas for marketing them. They also display their books as a group in different venues. What type of disabilities do you write about?
