Would you like some Redemption with your Mulled Wine?

Where else but Denman Island would people gather to sample warm libations and tasty nibbles alongside a touch of Redemption? It happened this past weekend and I’m happy to report that the book release party for The Gift: Redemption was a laughter-filled and resounding success.

My heartfelt thanks go to Elizabeth Chapman and Stephen Malthouse who hosted the event in their beautiful home. They’ve been stalwart supporters of my writing habit from the start and I’m so very grateful to call them friends.

I wish we’d managed to get a photo, but we were having so much fun, the opportunity slipped right by. Therefore, this photo is neither Elizabeth nor Stephen, but two other gents who dropped in to sample a libation or two and are, reportedly, beyond Redemption.

Thanks also to the other wonderful friends and neighbours who joined us to celebrate the release of this third book of The Gift Trilogy. Your support and encouragement mean the world to me.

And speaking of support and encouragement, I’m thrilled to announce that both the Vancouver Island Regional Library and the Vancouver Public Library have purchased The Gift Trilogy for their collections. My thanks and gratitude to their respective acquisitions personnel.

2014 is off to a roaring start!

    Getting into a library is great! I tried giving our local library a couple of copies but apparently the ‘review’ board declined. It just amazes me that a library would turn down a book by a local author even when they have many others on the shelves. No, it wasn’t only mine. A couple of other locals have books (one simply beautiful poetry) but they also were turned away. Unless it’s factual local history it’s a pretty tough sell.

      Thanks Mike. I’m sorry to hear that your local library has not been more receptive. It’s disappointing because I too am from the more the merrier school. Thanks for your comments, Mike.
