Sackets Harbor

Press Release – The History of Sackets Harbor, New York

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Glenburn, Maine, March 27, 2012 – Have you ever visited the historic village of Sackets Harbor, NY, located off the eastern end of Lake Ontario? If you have, then know about the village’s rich historical background. If you haven’t, there is a world to explore in the village, not only in its present state, but in its history.

 

In her new book, The History of Sackets Harbor, New York, author Janis I. Monroe, formerly of Watertown, New York, talks about the various areas of the history of the village of Sackets Harbor. She begins with the founding of the village in 1801 by New York City lawyer Augustus Sackett. Further chapters explore the village’s role in the War of 1812, The Battle of Big Sandy, when railroads came to the villages, fires that broke out, and the forts of the village.

 

The book will enlighten readers to Sackets Harbor’s history and the people who helped to build the village. Photographs accompany the writing and take you deeper into the history. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle editions.

 

Ms. Monroe created this book when she found there was not a book written about the history of Sackets Harbor and wanted to show people the history of the village and the importance of its existence in War History and American History.

 

Her connection to the village came when she went to school there and spent time there with friends. She picked up pieces of history along the years and continued to become even more curious about the full history behind the village. Sackets Harbor, NY is one of Ms. Monroe’s favorite places to be when she visits her family back in her hometown, of Watertown, NY.

 

Ms. Monroe currently lives in Maine and has published several articles for the Yahoo Contributor Network and has four poetry books published, and one memoir, besides The History of Sackets Harbor, New York. She has been writing since 1999, and continues to pursue this career while helping other authors along the way, by offering to interview other authors, review their books, and offers some light editing on their manuscripts. Monroe’s current project is The Gluten Free Directory which she hopes to release sometime next year, at the latest.

 

Monroe is available for interviews via phone, Skype, email, snail mail, or instant messenger (Yahoo, Google Talk). To follow Monroe on her writing journey visit her blog at http://janismonroe.wordpress.com

The Gluten Free Directory

Busy Day of Writing While Listening to The Creative Penn Podcast

Worked all day and most of the night on The Gluten Free Directory. I could work more, but I accomplished quite a bit and think I need to go rest for now. It’s after midnight where I am. Need my rest to take care of a sick husband and daughter tomorrow.

So I started out with only 44 companies offering gluten free products and I don’t just mean food. I am also referring to gluten free supplements, gluten free dog food too, something I was surprised to see. My list has grown to about 200 companies and my edit of this book has only just begun. Can you imagine how many companies I’ll have when this book is finished…well…tentatively finished, since it is a book that will constantly have to be updated to include the most up to date information.

This evening, while I was working on the book, I was listening to podcasts from Joanna Penn from The Creative Penn. Listening to her talk to other Indie authors and marketers is very inspiring and relaxing. I didn’t feel alone in my work, hearing other authors go through a lot to get a book written, published, and then marketed. Everyone seemed to have various methods on how they became successful.  Love this podcast and subscribed to it through iTunes. Highly recommend it.

I think podcasts may be in my future, but I need to read up about it. So we’ll see. Right now I’ll stick to You Tube, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Linked In, besides updating this blog.

So that is what I have been up today. Think it is about time to say good night. Will probably work on the book again tomorrow. Night everyone!

The Gluten Free Directory

The Gluten Free Directory Revamp

Well today, I really started getting into the revamp of my book The Gluten Free Directory. I have a start. I have cataloged about 44 companies carrying gluten free products. That’s a mere pittance to what I know is actually out there. Seems like new companies are springing up every month or so offering gluten free products. When I first started this book about three years ago, there weren’t near as many companies offering these kinds of products as there are today.

So my tasks are to:

Update existing companies (update products, contact information, and add company biographies)

Add new companies

Add in gluten free alcoholic beverage list

Add in restaurants and cafes offering gluten free options (this will probably take the longest to gather information for)

Here is a list of the companies I currently have in the book: If you know of a company offering gluten free food, know of gluten free alcoholic beverages, or of a place offering gluten free foods on their menu, please feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email. I want to make this book as beneficial to everyone on GF diets as possible. I will give you credit in my book in the acknowledgements for your help. Thank you and have a great day!!
