Up North writing
A book signing by author Mary Pickens will be held at the Bean & Leaf Coffee Shop on the corner of Main Street and University in Rochester from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 19; and from 5 to 8 p.m., Monday, Aug. 20.
Pickens debuts her novel, "For All of Our Days," a love story that is set in the small Northern Michigan fishing village of Arcadia.
The author was a long-time resident of Northern Michigan and is familiar with that of which she writes. She fished in many of the lakes and streams that dotted the landscape around Platte Bay, Manistee and the Little Betsy. She is as comfortable discussing salmon fishing up north as she is with the intricacies of manufacturing in Detroit.
"For All of Our Days" is not a typical romance novel. The main characters are not love-struck teen-agers, but rather adults in their early 40s who have experienced years of failed relationships. The small fishing village of Arcadia is depicted in such detail that readers will be transported by Pickens' words.
Follow Marc and Jenny through Kingsley, Traverse City, Old Mission Peninsula, Leland, Birch Run, Cadillac and several land mark establishments throughout Michigan.
"For All of Our Days" will capture the hearts and imaginations of romance fans with a love story that is both powerful and realistic.
The 334 page book is available in soft cover at $19.95, hardcover at $32.95. It may be purchased on Nook, Kindle and iPad or at the Pickens web page site: www.ForAllOfOurDays.ShortURL.com
