Newington’s Lucy Robbins Welles Library Rocks

November 2, 2016

There are 45 people registered for my travel presentation on my one-year journey through the 48 continental states, Canada and Mexico in an RV. The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Lucy Robbins Welles library in Newington, CT. The name of the book is “Strapped into an American Dream,” which details how we were able to pull off a trip of this magnitude as well as the people we met and the places we visited along the way. There is so much to see in this wonderful country that an entire year on the road only scratched the surface, but what a year it was. We traveled 35,000 miles and linked all 48 lower states. We visited 23 National Parks, Graceland, Las Vegas, Mardi Gras, and the geographical center of America in Kansas. It was an unforgettable trip and one that resonates with people because it’s a dream of many. It’s the american dream, and what I’ve found is that most people cannot do something like this, but they are enthusiastic about traveling vicariously and becoming an armchair traveler. I will tell them all about it and give them the opportunity to take home a copy of my book tomorrow night (Seatbelt Not Required).

I will also have copies of my out-of-body travel paranormal series. Desert Son and Wayward Soul. The third book of this trilogy, Spiritual Intervention, will be released December 15, 2016.

The (RV) Show Must Go On

January 22, 2016

The Northeast CT RV & Camping Show at the CT Convention Center is this weekend and Storm Jonas (brothers) is not going to ruin it! We’re only expecting 1-5 inches of snow in the Hartford area. Hopefully it misses us completely because this is my favorite show of the year. I’ll be speaking and signing copies of my book, Strapped Into An American Dream. Come on out to the show and start thinking about warmer times and travelling by land. I will also be doing a book signing at the Worcester RV Show in the DCU Center in Worcester MA on Sunday,  February 21st from 11-5PM. Come on down and step into one of these American dreams.

Strapped Into A Better CT clip

January 20, 2016

Here is a clip from the Channel 3 website of my Better CT show appearance this afternoon discussing my one year journey through the 48 continental states in an RV. It was a wonderful experience to see the behind the scenes of this television show with Scot Haney and Kara Sundlun moving around the studio from set to set with the cameraman shouting out how much time before each scene goes live. My shot was inside an RV provided by Van’s RV. This is all in preparation for this weekend’s CT RV Show at the CT Convention Center, and hopefully winter storm Jonas pushes out to sea.

Think of Spring with the Northeast Connecticut RV & Camping Show coming this Weekend

January 19, 2015

I will be doing a book signing at the Northeast Recreational Vehicle & Camping Show at the Connecticut Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday (January 24th and 25th) from 10 AM to 4 PM. I will be signing copies of my book, “Strapped Into An American Dream,” which details my one year journey through the 48 continental states in an RV. I will also have copies of my latest book, “Desert Son,” available for purchase. This signing was announced in The Hartford Courant and The Glastonbury Citizen last week, and Mike Cameron will announce my appearance on Channel 3 News (WFSB) this coming Saturday. Attached is a link to the RV Show as well as my website for further details of my books. Let’s get thinking about spring in the middle of winter and get out of hibernation and into dreams of warmer weather. One month from today Spring Training starts for Major League Baseball, so I can almost smell it!

2015 RV Show Booksigning

December 17, 2014

It’s not too early to think about camping, and that thought will take us through the long, cold winter. That’s the mindset of RV and camping enthusiasts. That’s why the Northeast Recreational Vehicle & Camping show pulls into town next month on January 24th and 25th. I will be there signing copies of my book, “Strapped Into An American Dream.” Thousands of people pass through the Connecticut Convention Center for this event, and it’s by far the best event for my travel book. There will be more details to come, but if you’re a camping and recreational vehicle enthusiast, then be sure to attend this event, and stop by to say hello. I will say hello back!

6 Author booksigning in Vernon, CT

Glenn Maynard to Take Part in The Book Rack’s ‘Authors Slam’ on May 14, 2011 in Vernon

Glenn Maynard, author of Strapped into an American Dream, will join 5 other writers to participate in an ‘Authors Slam’ event, held at The Book Rack at the Shops at 30 Plaza, 435 Hartford Tpk., Vernon, CT, 06066, on Saturday May 14, from 10 to 2.

Strapped Into an American Dream
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) – May 09, 2011 – Vernon, CT – Glenn Maynard, author of Strapped into an American Dream, will join five other writers to participate in an ‘Authors Slam’ event, held at The Book Rack at the Shops at 30 Plaza, 435 Hartford Tpk., Vernon, CT, 06066, on Saturday May 14, from 10am to 2pm. The authors will sign books and discuss their work; seating and light refreshments will be available.

Maynard’s memoir captures America, whirling readers along a 35,000-mile trek through the 48 contiguous states in a rebuilt RV. One week after their wedding, Glenn and his wife quit their jobs, sold their cars, and set out to find America. This book details how they were able to realize this dream, and then introduces the reader to the unique people they met and the places they visited along the path.

Travel with them through 23 National Parks, Las Vegas, Mardi Gras, and dusty ghost towns. Feel the rushing wind of tornadoes and the rocking of an earthquake. Sleep on roadsides and in truck stops, shifting from state to state, risking danger in favor of a limited bank account.

It is the dream of many Americans, in all walks of life, to travel the country, but few realize this dream. Now they may do so vicariously in the reading of these adventures. Laugh along the way. Share the terror, sorrow, and humor — strapped into an American dream.

Wethersfield, CT Library speaking engagement

February 21, 2011

http://www.wethersfieldlibrary.org/news/upcoming.html

Here is a link from the Wethersfield CT Public Library website which lists my appearance at the Wethersfield Public Library in…that’s right…Wethersfield, CT. Tuesday, March 1st is the date and 7PM is the time. March 1st is nearly Springtime, and hopefully it comes soon because I’m still trying to thaw out from the Whale Bowl on Saturday. Spring is not quite here yet, so why not go to your local library and check out authors who speak about their books through the Friends of the Library. These events are free and open to the public, and a good way to spend an evening…especially a cold evening.
