Horseback Riding and Book Publishing

I know…what could one thing have to do with the other?

Well, nothing really. Unless one considers the intangible benefits.

Recently, my life has centred around working full-time, writing screenplays, and getting the print version of The Orphans of the Creek ready for market (the design looks great, by the way. I’ll post a sample soon)

But last Sunday, I went on a trail ride through the Oak Ridges Moraine.

I hadn’t been on a horse in years, but George, the Fjord/Quarter Horse mix that guided me through the dense, hilly forest, made me feel like I had just ridden the day before. The staff at Pleasure Valley were very welcoming and patiently helped me reacquaint myself with the saddle, despite the rain, sleet, and hail that soaked us.

So again: what does this have to do with book publishing? And again: nothing, except for the intangible benefits that a little getaway can give you. Thanks to George, I feel realigned.

Have a great weekend everybody. Hope you get the opportunity to do something good for yourself.

See you out there!

Book Tours and Live Appearances!

Hi everyone!

Keep your eyes on this space for information on my upcoming book tour and other live appearances in support of my new novel,  The Orphans of the Creek. 

I had such a great time during my Chapters-Indigo Raincloud Book Tour and live Self-Publishing Speaking Series that I can’t wait to do it all over again. Meeting new readers and mentoring upcoming writers makes every late night writing, editing, and designing worthwhile.

See YOU out there!

If you’re a writer, write. And if you’re a reader, keep reading. We need you!
