Thumbs up Novel..."An Island Away"

Has anyone read Daniel Putkowski's novel, "An Island Away" ? I have been to Aruba fourteen times since the late 80"s. I really enjoyed reading this book. He is working on his new book, "Under a Blue Flag". Let me know.

Gene and Sherry,

Thanks for mentioning An Island Away. I am hard at work on the sequel, but it will be a long time coming.

And... for those of you in the Philadelphia Metro area, the Collingswood, NJ book festival is happening this weekend. I'll be there all day on Saturday, 4 October. Maybe some you can stop by for a signature in your book and lots of fun conversation about Aruba. There will be other authors there, running the spectrum from sports writers to children's books.

Anyway, see you there or on the island soon.

Bon dia!

Gene,

I'll be there. Keep an eye on the Aruba Today and The News. These papers will have An Island Away events listed. I'll also be frequenting Charlie's Bar and some other haunts. So, I'm easy to find.

Thanks and see you there!

DebbieB and Gene,

The book is available in most hotel gift shops including Red Sail Sports, DeWit/VanDorp Stores, Samsom Book Store on L.G. Smith Boulevard, and Plaza Bookshop in Dakota.

It has just been confirmed that I will be signing books at the Holiday Inn on Friday, 5 December from 9 AM to 3 PM. This will be in the lobby and is hosted by the Holiday Inn and DeWit/VanDorp Stores.

Bon dia.

Gene,

Pleasure to meet you and all the other folks at the Holiday Inn and Hyatt book signing events. The photo galleries of these should be up today or tomorrow on my website. Check them out, you'll probably see yourself there.

All the best and bon dia.

Daniel... We just go back a few days ago... Did i read correctly in Aruba Today that you were involved in some type of motorvehicle incident?! It sounded like you were struck by a car! Hope all is ok!

Sorry if this has been discussed already on the forum!

Jasejase,

A visitor ran a stop sign and torpedoed my truck. No injuries but mucho damage to my truck. His rental was totaled. Don't believe what they tell you. Insurance doesn't pay for half of it.

Yes, could have been worse. Doesn't excuse bad behavior by others.

Anyway.
