Yep! You read the title of this post correctly. You’re not seeing things! The History of Sackets Harbor, New York is free until February 6th 2013. If you like history and learning about places you have never been to, then I urge you to read this book. You may just find yourself packing your bags and heading to this historic village. Take it from one of my reviewers:

 

5.0 out of 5 stars
A fantastic read for a history buff & on my wish list for places to visit!, January 25, 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This author from Watertown, has really done her homework on the History of Sackets Harbor, New York. This is the best researched and most well-written book on the history of a mid Atlantic state that I have had the pleasure to read. It is worthy of textbook material for high school and college students because the history lessons are rich, including highly detailed accounts of the Sackets Harbor regions and shipyards, and its national importance during the War of 1812. Lots of important and notable people are covered within the history accounts of this famous village, founded by Augustus Sackett over 200 years ago. The author brings the history up to date, with descriptions of the area sites, museums and shops that are tourist attractions today. With the beautiful lake views and railroad, I’m ready to take a trip to this historical place myself and I have placed it on my wish list of places to visit. What a great learning tool this book is, that gives new nuggets of info with each re-read of it — lots of information that can be studied and enjoyed. It’s a five-star hit for me!

Busy Promoting The History of Sackets Harbor, NY

 

Earlier today, I sent out a press release for The History of Sackets Harbor, NY to pr.com as well as published it on the Yahoo Contributor Network.

I also sent out letters to places in Sackets Harbor, NY, Watertown, NY and Martinsburg, NY to see if they will stock my book. Also sent letters to some book clubs.  These places include:

Calla Lillies – Sackets Harbor

Sackets Harbor Visitor’s Center

Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site

Bev and Co.

The Handmaiden’s Garden

Hay Memorial Library

East Hounsfield Memorial Library – Watertown, NY

Book of the Month Club

History Book Club

A Second Look Bookstore – Watertown, NY

Seaway Trail Discovery Center – Sackets Harbor, NY

 

Whew! I had tried contacting several places via email but have heard nothing back. I figured my  mail may have gotten into the spam box, so I decided to write letters and mail them the old fashioned way. I sent them a letter, with an author biography and picture, and page detailed with book information and a picture. I pray God has His hand on these efforts. We shall see what happens. I’ll keep everyone posted.
