Interview with Diane Tibert

Diane Tibert  has very generouFlying booksly asked me to do an interview with her all about my new book, Flying with a Broken Wing. She had some interesting questions about the writing of the book. Made me think a few times about things I hadn’t yet considered, but that’s a good thing in this case. I hope some of you will have time to check it out HERE Thanks SO much, Diane. The interview was great fun!

Fall is flying by at a rapid speed. I suppose it goes without saying, the older we are, the faster time seems to go. Yesterday, I attended the funeral of someone from the community I’d known all my life. The past was certainly present as his daughters shared some touching memories with all of us. It’s interesting the way we bring our own memories into play at a time like that, how we sometimes end up longing for those days gone by.

I have this week off work and I’m really hoping to get some writing down. I have a few manuscripts on the go and I’d like to settle down and work on just one of them, maybe even get it to the point where it’s ready to be sent out. Well, I can at least dream about that.

How is your week shaping up? Anything interesting you’d like to share?

Yes, We Have a Winner!

The winner of the book, “Buried Secrets at Louisbourg,” by JoAnn Yhard is Betty McEachern of Nova Scotia. Thanks to all of who entered in the fun. You might still want to grab of copy of JoAnn’s book and check it out.  🙂  Better luck next time!

This evening I’m hard at work on some interview questions for a local publication that will come out near the end of August. If you’re in my area, watch for this publication in your mailbox. I can’t begin to express how wonderful it feels to have the support of local communities. It really mean a lot. Writing is such an isolating activity. A writer can work for many months, or years, on a book. We like to think all our effort was worth it. Knowing that other are interested in what we’re doing helps keep us poking away at that keyboard day after day.

And now I guess I’d better get back at those questions.

Enjoy your weekend.

A Blog Post From Moi

Guess what? I’m back! Well… not really. I’m just popping on here to let you know I’m still kicking around and to let you know I’ve been interviewed. Yes interviewed! After much whining and arm-twisting, I convinced Diane Tibert to add me to her weekly interviews here. (BTW She posts a different interview with a new author each Friday.) So what’s this interview about? I’m talking about my old book, a bit about my new book, and Pru Burbidge even pops in to answer a few questions. Remember her? She’s the main character in Bitter, Sweet. While you’re there don’t forget to check out some of the other interviews. I’ve a few more weeks left on my blogging vacation, but I’ll be back. I hope you will be too. Enjoy the remainder of your summer, and if you’d like to leave me a comment so that I don’t feel completely out of the loop, what interesting or exciting things have been going on in your life?

The Big Interview

Well, maybe not so big but we had a nice long chat and the lady who interviewed me had actually read the book!!

Earlier today the editor from the Kings County Register came by to interview me. Since Dalhousie is actually in three different counties we usually get coverage from both Kings and Lunenburg which is great. The article will run next week before the launch. I’ll put a link up when it comes out. I really don’t like having my picture snapped because I take really bad photos but I guess it’s too late to feel self conscious about a silly old photo that will be forgotten next week. It’s like getting a bad hair cut…It’ll grow out in time.

This week the Bridgewater Bulletin ran a story about “Bitter, Sweet” I’ve included the link below in case anyone is interested in looking. As I was told the other day it’s all publicity for the book which is always a welcomed thing. I got away easy on the Bulletin article because the gentleman interviewed me over the phone.. No photos…Teehee.
