Publication News

 

And so, a quick update for those of you who have been asking about the progress of my book and when it may be published. (And a sincere thank you for being interested! :) )

Although I’ve been quiet on that front publicly as of late, a lot has been happening behind the scenes. I still can’t go into too much detail, but if all goes well Book One of my series, The Nature Knights, will be published Fall 2015.

I’m bursting to tell you more so as soon as I can start to reveal details, I will! For now, I’d better get back to the writing. There are eight more full length novels in the series, plus a novella – and they won’t write themselves.

One thing’s for sure … I’ll never complain of boredom.

Interview with Charis Cotter (Part 2)

Below you’ll find the final segment of my interview with Newfoundland children’s author, Charis Cotter. Here Charis talks about the importance of daydreaming, her work as an actor and children’s entertainer, and her incredible launch party coming up on October 25!

In fact the launch is so cool, I’m going to give you the details here too. It will be at Newman’s Wine Vault, 436 Water Street, St. John’s NL at 7:30pm (October 25). It’s completely free and the Vault will be decorated like the cover of The Swallow, there will be “spooky treats” and of course Charis will be doing a reading and putting on a bit of a show. :)  It’s going to be awesome – I can’t wait!

And of course, as part of today’s post Charis is giving away a copy of her book, The Swallow: A Ghost Story. Simply enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below the interview. It’s a stunning hardcover book, so if you know any kids between the ages of 9-12, you’re going to want to get this for them. Trust me. :)

As always, I’d love to know what you think about this or any of my posts. Please feel free to leave a note in the comment box at the end of the post.

Interview with Charis Cotter

After a brief summer hiatus I’m back with another interview – this time with Newfoundland children’s author, Charis Cotter! Her latest novel is for kids aged 9-12 and is entitled The Swallow: A Ghost Story (published by Tundra Books, a division of Random House). In this first of a two-part interview, we talk about the inspiration for the story … and whether or not she has actually seen a ghost!

Part two of this interview will be posted on Friday, September 12. AND we’ll be giving away a hardcover copy of The Swallow: A Ghost Story. Stay tuned! 😀
