Simmons B&N book launch for The Last Quinn Standing is OUTSTANDING!

On the March 11th, Thomas E. Simmons had the pleasure of performing a multiple book signing and launch of his second in the Quinn Trilogy at the Barnes and Nobel in Gulfport, Mississippi.


The CRM, Brenda Blount, knows how to treat an author. Upon arrival, she had notices of the event outside and inside, a signing table, a display, and a bountiful supply of all four books, including his latest, The Last Quinn Standing. Book buyers by the twos and threes arrived at my table beginning at 2 p.m. and continued steadily until after 5 p.m.

Prior publicity for the event included: an exemplary review by Jim Fraiser of the Sun Herald, a very nice article in the South Mississippi Living Magazine, a speaking engagement at the annual meeting of the Mississippi Historical Society, and an appearance on South Mississippi’s WLOX TV.

Simmons attributes his success to his fine talent, stemming from lifetime experiences and a passion for history, his loving wife, Kay, and no-account dog, Snert, his agent, Jeanie Loiacono, who never gives up, his loyal following of readers and reviewers, B&N and Brenda Blount, who always welcomes Simmons’s events, and, last but not least, his publishers and their dedicated staff: TouchPoint Press (By Accident of Birth and The Last Quinn Standing), Skyhorse Publishing (The Man Called Brown Condor), and Taylor Trade (Forgotten Heroes of World War II: Personal Accounts of Ordinary Soldiers Land, Sea, and Air). “Because of all these fine people, it was a fine event for which I am very grateful.” — Thomas E.
