Twenty-four days and counting until BEAR’s official release. The pre-order page is up on Amazon.com, which is very cool. In the works is a book launch at the Community Library of Lake and Salem townships — AKA, the library in Hamlin. Because a big part of my story is about the new life of an abused circus bear, I thought it appropriate to involve the awesome people of the Dessin Animal Shelter. All proceeds raised during the book launch will go to the shelter: “Buy a BEAR and feed a homeless cat.” Why not?

About colealpaugh

Cole Alpaugh's newspaper career began in the early 80s, starting with small daily papers in Maryland and Massachusetts, where his stories won national awards. His most recent job was at a large daily in Central New Jersey, where his "true life" essays included award-winning pieces on a traveling rodeo and an in-depth story on an emergency room doctor that was nominated by Gannett News Service for a 1991 Pulitzer Prize. Cole also contracted with two Manhattan-based news agencies, covering conflicts in Haiti, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Thailand and Cambodia. His work has appeared in dozens of magazines, as well as most newspapers in America. Cole is currently a freelance photographer and novelist living in Northeast Pennsylvania, where he spends afternoons in a virtual running race around the equator, and evenings watching his daughter's magical stage performances.
