Creemore Festival of the Arts

Hello, and welcome to my monthly journal. This month is a short one, just enough to recap what I’m up to. A busy weekend at the Creemore Festival of the Arts. I’ll be there with all my books, and I hope to see some of you there, too.

  1. My book promotion is still running for the Fall into Middle-Grade Books.

Some excellent ebooks are available at sale prices, only for a limited time. My book Dojo in the Woods is part of an countdown deal; get it now at this discount price.

2. Each year, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day honors the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Creemore Festival of the Arts has come together in the community to pay tribute and honor.

3. Earlier in another post, I mentioned my new mentor role to a Sheridan College writing student. Some thoughts on the different types of writers that are creating stories. A discussion on Plotters and Pantsers.

4. I am in the process of redesigning the site. Sorry for the inconvenience with lost posts, images, and such.

5. I have started the process of working on a new manuscript. It is a story about a young superhero who only wants to stay in a world surrounded by joy, happiness, and peace. Of course, being a superhero, he forces some of those issues.

Thank you for reading. If you know of someone who would be interested in reading my monthly journal, please share. All of my books are now available at your favorite bookstores; support local bookstores with your online purchases. Make sure you get out and about this summer. Visit a book store or the library and pick up some books. If you’re looking for a great early reader chapter book, get my book Scratchy the Squirrel: A Time for Friends. Or one of my picture books, Samba on a Snowy Day ,  Samba in Brazil or Samba in Switzerland.

Stay safe, stay well, stay strong and keep going.
