I’m a big fan of libraries.
I use our local library a lot. So much, in fact, that a lot of the staff know me on sight and start pulling out the books I have requested before I can even take out my library card. When my novel first came out, they responded to requests from some patrons and made sure there was a copy in the stacks.
Over the past few months, I’ve enjoyed keeping track of when the copies were out from both the Moose Jaw and Willow Bunch branches. I thought it would be neat to actually see my book on their shelves, but it was out each time I had a book to pick up. Finally, it worked out that it was in at the right time and I decided to get a photo.
I had forgotten about the COVID restrictions.
But then one of the staff came to the rescue. She took my cell phone and went behind the barriers to take some shots for me. She did a lot more than her duties required and I really appreciated it. Here are the photos.
I am thrilled to pass on the news that my novel “Scars” was announced on June 13th as a winner at The Word Guild of Canada online awards gala. It won in the category Christian Fiction Books – Suspense/Speculative. It was an honor to be nominated and an amazing blessing to be declared the winner. I wish to congratulate all the other winners and nominees, and especially the other nominees in the Suspense/Speculative category, Sara Davison for “Vigilant” and Janet Sketchley for “Hidden Secrets.”
My novel “Scars” has made the short list for The Word Guild of Canada Awards. It was nominated in the Suspense & Speculative Fiction category. Congratulations also to Sara Davison for “Vigilant” and Janet Sketchley for “Hidden Secrets” who were also nominated in the same category.
