I've been working hard on getting a third Maple Harbour Adventure book finished in time for Christmas. And I'm pleased to say that a draft copy has now gone to the editor for review. We're working on the illustrations and hope to be published some time in November.
As of this month, BWL Publishing is the new distributor for Adventure on Whalebone Island and The Mystery of the Missing Mask. David Korinetz of Red Tuque Books is retiring, and he has transferred distribution of some of his catalog to BWL. This shouldn't result in any difference for bookstores, who can now order through BWL instead of Red Tuque.
Thanks David for all your work distributing Canadian authors over the years, and enjoy your retirement!
Following up on her review of Adventure on Whalebone Island, Debra Schoenberger has now also reviewed The Mystery of the Missing Mask on her blog #redhead.with.book.
Thanks so much Debra!

It features reviews of children's books published by Canadians.
Adventure on Whalebone Island was reviewed by Teresa Iaizzo, a librarian with the Toronto Public Library. Teresa gave the book a wonderful review. Thanks so much Teresa!

I spent last Thursday morning at Gibsons Elementary School for their 2018 Young Writers Festival, "Write from the Heart". I spoke with two great classes, Mr. Rines 5/6 class and Ms. Evans 4/5 class. Their were lots of great questions and even better ideas when I asked them to do some brainstorming around plots for a future Maple Harbour book.
Afterward there was a luncheon provided where myself and the other authors got to hear some of the poems and stories written by students at the school.
Thanks to Melanie Robinson for all her hard working in organizing this event!
