My books are about the history of my Croatian family and friends, of course, fictionalized. Today I got in the mail, letters I had written during my stay in the village of Sibich, Jugoslavia in 1956. All those letters had disappeared but for some reason my nephew had several which I had written to my mother. Talk about a trip down memory lane! ... See MoreSee Less

Only two authors of the 25 who were at the Hammond Library Author Fair last month were featured in today's Chicago Tribune, I was one of them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
More than two dozen authors set up colorful displays in the Community Room to showcase their books to the public.

Rosemary Gard of Crown Point has written five books. Each is a stand-alone story, and the author described them as "fictionalized facts."

Each book has the name "Destiny" in the title for a specific reason.

"I've been writing since I was 12 years old. My mom wanted me to sew, but my dad bought me a typewriter," Gard said. "So, I felt destined to write these books."

It was an interesting afternoon meeting people at the Hammond, IN Author Fair. SO MANY people came up to me and thanked me for writing about Croatians in America. I was told multiple times that there were Croatians in their family history but they didn't know anything about the Croatian people. When I told them that the books were fiction, but based on facts about my family and Croatians that I knew, they were awed, wishing they knew more about their own ethnic background. ...

2017 Local Author Fair: Rosemary Gard

Saturday May 20th  ·  

Self-published authors, of which I am one, really need to do a lot of promoting. I am in touch with other authors and read the advice they offer. One such piece of advice is to wear any awards one has received. I can't bring myself to do this. I would feel as if I were showing off...so...I will have my gold medal award displayed on the table at the Hammond Library as you see it in the photo. ... See MoreSee Less

Read in today's newspaper that Amazon has opened some brick & mortar book stores. It has been decided that people like to handle books and talk with others who like books. I believe there are 2 such Amazon stores in Seattle. The books are displayed so that one can see the front and not just the spines. ... See MoreSee Less
