AUTHOR’S CORNER: Peter Altschul and His Second Book Now Appearing!

Hello to all.

Before my computer battery dies for the day I’d like to draw your attention to the following information I found today while searching the BARD collection.

For those of you who do not know about the National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicap please see, for all details.

Congratulations to author Peter Altschul for getting your second book onto this fine digital download site thus making it available for those who have disabilities relating to the reading of print to read.

Here is the NLS info and then Peter’s bio and contact information.

    Thanks, Patty, for the publicity.

    1. Hi, you are welcome. I had lots of things to catch up on, so you were the only person who got any today before my computer battery died yet again. I am reading your book now, and I recommend it highly. I read the first one as well. Peter, you are a very good writer.
