Hope Farm Press May/June 2012 NY Books Newsletter

2012 June Vol XIV Issue VI

New York State Books Newsletter

from Richard Frisbie of Hope Farm Press




Since becoming the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain guide for examiner.com, I’ve written 47 articles on the region and the events that take place here. From genealogy to history, bicentennials to scenic by-ways, all aspects of the region eventually make the list. If you haven’t checked it out yet – please do. My income is determined by the number of visitors to the site and how many subscribe. The page is all about a region you’re most likely interested in, so please click below and subscribe to my articles. http://www.examiner.com/hudson-valleycatskills-in-new-york/richard-frisbie


Spring chores, getting the garden in, next year’s firewood, etc – I’m still doing everything else, but manage to be in the shop most afternoons from 3 to 5 to answer mail and fill orders. Books come in that I am slowly (very slowly) adding to my database. If you can’t find it online – don’t worry – I probably have it in stock or on order. Just shoot me an email and I’ll let you know. My website, http://www.hopefarmbooks.com, is open 24/7. I still have a difficult schedule, especially with my bakery & examiner hours. The books are still here (or on order) but I’m not. Please make the digital, virtual shop work as much as possible. Your patience with me is appreciated. Thank you!
