Norma & LarryAyers – Wood Crafts

Here are some of the wood crafts made by Larry Ayers. Larry and his wife Norma, lovely people, were the only ones with crafts. All the others were authors and their books. Larry is a very talented woodworker and has some clever and adorable pieces.

It was a pleasant day networking with other authors and meeting some lovely prospective buyers. A special ‘thank you’ to our sponsors, New England Authors Expo and Nancy and Chris Obert of Pear Tree Publishing and others.

We expected to have a rainy day but luckily it turned out to be a nice one. There were not the crowds we expected but John and I did better than expected with our books especially because of the children’s books. We were one of three of the 50 authors who had children’s books.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please check out all these authors and Ayers Crafts.


Please be kind and leave reviews for authors wherever you purchased their books. We authors will appreciate your efforts and kindness. Thank you so much!

Blessings & Hugs,
