The manuscript for Monsters of New Jersey by Loren Coleman and Bruce G. Hallenbeck was turned in late last night. The published book should be out by Halloween 2010 from Stackpole Books.
The dedication to the book is for Jerry Dale Coleman, William Coleman, Susan Hoey, & Martha Hallenbeck.
The first three are my living siblings, and the last is Bruce’s late grandmother.
