Kamloops here I come!

I’m excited to be heading back to Kamloops for School District 73’s Young Authors’ Conference. This year I’ll be presenting a workshop on The Magic of Three. Looking forward to meeting the other presenters and being inspired by the next generation of authors!

Happy Holidays!

There is a lot of talk lately about 2016 being the worst year ever. In terms of world events, I don’t disagree. More personally, however, I realize more every year (and every day) just how fortunate I am. Looking ahead to 2017, I hope to share my good fortune with others and do my part to make the world a more tolerant and accepting place. I’m looking forward to the release of my book, Inside Hudson Pickle (I just saw a sneak peak of the cover and can’t wait to share it here), as well more writing and sharing of good books.

But we still have a few more days left of 2016 and I want to wish everyone a very happy and joyful holiday. I hope we all find a sense of peace that can carry us into whatever lies ahead.

Best wishes. xo yolanda

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.
