I had my first signing at Coles Avalon Mall yesterday. Only sold a couple of copies but also a copy of Belle Maro and The Warm Place. I had some great chats with people about writing and about the Beothuks and Newfoundland in general. All of my books are set in Newfoundland. I tell people my books are written by a Newfoundlander, about Newfoundlanders, set in Newfoundland. I think that will always be the case. The Newfoundlanders in my books may at times be fictional characters, but they will always be Newfoundlanders.
I have approached Downhome about distributing Charlie Freake from Scilly Cove through their system. It is in review with them.
The book hopefully will be in Chapters in March. I have yet to approach Coles Village Mall…that’s my plan this week.
Glenda and I are off to Portugal for two months in early March until the end of April so I have to get as much promotion as I can done before then. I’ll get lots of writing done while in Portugal. I’m working on three new books.
