Thanks to Sean Yoon for the shots of me at the library. (Sean was doing an article on self-published authors for UBC’s The Thunderbird.)
It’s exciting to publish through Smashwords and read the book in epub. This format allows the book to be placed in public libraries, and thus open up wider access for readers. As well, the novel is now available at Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribd and Inktera.
I’m thrilled to have my book honored by the North Street Book Prize. The competition is located in Northampton, Massachusetts, which is the home of Smith College. While I’ve never visited in person, the writings of Thoreau and Emerson made an impact on my early years, and they come back to me at this moment.
