What an interesting Rotary meeting this afternoon. We heard about the business side of being an author from Edith Maxwell, who also writes under the pen name, Maddie Day. It’s more than just writing a mystery story. Be sure to check out her website, edithmaxwell.com and sign up for her newsletter and Facebook page.We also learned that Cathy Toomey was written into (and out of) the Quaker Midwife Mysteries. It’s amazing what you can get if you’re the highest bidder

This past week, Jane Ansaldo Church shared information about the Step Up Thrift Shop. They accept “lightly” used/worn clothing/shoes and books to name a few things (not furniture) and they are open certain hours but you can donate 24 hours/day at the shed they have that’s between the library and the church. They reinvest almost all the proceeds back into the City of Amesbury.
