Surprise, we (Robert and Patty Mondore) will be at Singer Castle on Dark Island this Saturday, September 1, 2012 from afternoon to 4:00 pm  autographing copies of our book, Singer Castle Revisted. Patty will also have her wildly popular new inspirational book River Reflections. Of course, Dark Island's Castle of Mysteries (DVD) and the book River-Lations (as well as other works) will be on hand too!  Mention that you saw this blog and you will receive a great gift from us with the purchase of any book or DVD with our name on it from their souvenier shop while we are present. While supplies last, I have Flash Drives, baseball style hats, tote bags, toy knights, and more ready to be given away for free! See you Saturday.

I don't mean to leave anyone out. I know going to Dark Island isn't like going to your local Walmart. So if you aren't in the area, drop me an email so I can get you in on the goodies!

The Great Escape TV Series: Singer Castle episode date still unknown.

8/9/12 Updated information.
I have promised to keep the readers of this blog on the cutting edge of information. I had received lists of all the shows for the Great Escape for this season. As a matter of logical deduction, it appeared that The Great Escape show featuring Singer Castle would probably be aired in the latter part of this month. I strongly cautioned with great emphasis that the date was only tentative and not confirmed. Alas though, I have just received information that this date will not be featuring our beloved Dark Island. It has been a real guessing game for all of us. Even the respected YNN cable news reported that this show "should air sometime in July" (which did not pan out). So we are still all in the dark on this mystery (pun intended). Watch this blog for further updates. As always, we will stay on the cutting edge and let you know what is happening when we know it. Thank you for staying tuned.

Patty Mondore - New book: River Reflections

Above photo: Patty Mondore's new book River Reflections.

There has been a lot of buzz and interest in the North country concerning Patty's latest book, River Reflections. Both Bob and Patty will be at the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton NY during its huge antique boat show this Saturday (Aug. 4, 2012) from 2 PM to 4 PM. Patty will be doing book signings for her new book, and we will both be available for some of our other works, including Singer Castle Revisited.

For details about River Reflections, click on this link for an article that was featured in the fabulous Thousand Islands Life online magazine. 

(River Relections follows on the heels of, but should not be confused with Patty's previous book called River-Lations. River-Lations is also the title of her popular column in the Islands' preeminent newspaper, the Thousand Islands Sun Vacationer that comes out every week during the summer months.) 

Below, Bob and Patty at last year's antique boat show. We have been very fortunate to have been invited to this renown event for many years. Drop in and say hello.

Bob and Patty are the entrepreneurs at and Bob is the author at We always enjoy any feedback and welcome article submissions or interesting photos related to the Thousand Islands for this blog.
