Authors for Indies

imagesTomorrow is Authors for Indies Day! Rossland’s fantastic independent locally owned bookstore, New Edition Café Books, is hosting local authors Almeda Glenn Miller (10:30-12:00), Jennifer Ellis (presenting a workshop on Indie and Hybrid Publishing from 1:30-3:00), and Rosa Jordan (3:00-5:00). Unfortunately, due to prior commitments I am not able to participate but I have donated some books for a door prize. Come out to talk books and support your local bookstore!

Trouble in the Trees is now a google doc. Not sure about the significance of this but if you want to read it as a pdf, it’s out there in the public domain for downloading.  Good or bad?  You tell me.

Dear Lucky Agent

My WIP (which has been “in progress” for almost three years) is finally ready to query!  I’m in the process of gathering a list of potential agents (fingers crossed) and came across this lucky agent contest with Writer’s Digest.

So I’m throwing my hat in the ring (or ring in the hat, as I told my husband) and hoping the logline and first 200 words of Inside Hudson Pickle will appeal to Christa Heschke of McIntosh & Otis Literary Agency.

Thankful for…

We’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, but I want to wish our southern neighbours a safe and happy holiday.  I am thankful to live in a country that supports art and culture.  I hope that all my friends and family in America are able to say the same.

And on that note, my congratulations to all the winners and nominees of this years Canadian Children’s Literature Awards.  And thank you to the Grand Forks Library for hosting my presentation on “Getting Published”.  I’m looking forward to meeting you all next week.

From award winning, published authors to the those participating in NaNoWriMo – I applaud you all and I’m honoured to be part of your community.  On both sides of the boarder.
