Local author launches first book with signing

Wynantskill native, Kit Farrell’s, debut novel Am I Doing This Right? strikes cord with millenials

Local author, Kit Farrell, will be holding her first book signing Monday, May 4th at Ryan’s Wake in Troy.  The signing for her book, Am I Doing This Right? will begin at 6:00 PM

Farrell’s book is fiction, and centers on a recent college graduate.  Unemployed, living with her parents, and rarely wearing pants, Quinn discovers that her college diploma didn’t come with the perfect job.  Thankfully life can lead you down some strange paths.

To say Quinn Kelly is not in a good place in her life is an understatement.  Since moving back in with her parents, the college grad has started drinking too much wine and stopped wearing pants.

Working for a fake-food-display company is a far cry from Quinn’s dream job—a career in one of Chicago’s elite art galleries.  But she’d rather make up stories than admit she spends her days painting clay vegetables.  Meanwhile her sister is pregnant, and her mother is trying to hook Quinn up with an old high school boyfriend.

Quinn isn’t about to give up on her dream job, but that’s the funny thing about dreams: when they come true, they aren’t always what you expect.

A story of one young woman coming to terms with life’s inherent chaos, Am I Doing This Right? offers a humorous look at being twenty-something in the twenty-first century.

Farrell, a graduate of Averill Park High School and SUNY Oswego, self-published her first novel though Amazon after literary agents and editors encouraged her to change her story to make it more traditional and marketable.  Am I Doing This Right? is available on Amazon and Kindle.
