Make a little music! The young gentlemen who reside at the 1887 Hench House recently performed a concert on the front porch for their socially distancing neighborhood.
What’s not to love? Happy, healthy, joyous kids growing up in a fabulous historic house. It gives me hope knowing that some of their memories of this historically awful time will be of this wonderful moment.
We all need some celebration these days, even while acknowledging the pain and difficulty so many are experiencing. 14 months after launching social media platforms to build awareness about my book, we are celebrating our 10,000th follower on Instagram today! With another 16,000+ followers on Facebook, it is clear we are providing something people are interested in and enjoying.
In the 6 1/2 months since the book’s release, the response to it has been very gratifying as well — wonderful reviews in the preservation press, its first literary award, and strong steady sales even through the closure of most books stores for 3 months. Most satisfying have been the online reader reviews and personal messages from buyers. I’m thrilled the pros admire the book but it is truly rewarding to hear that actual historic homeowners are finding it useful!
