Book deal signed!

Good news on the writing front – Borealis Press of Ottawa will be publishing my short story collection, The Ugly Truck and Dog Contest and Other Tales of Northern Life, later on this spring.

Not only has the deal been signed, the editor and I have been busy doing our thing with the manuscript. Editing and revisions are done, and the manuscript has been laid out – page proofs should be winging their way to me even as we speak.

You can take a peek at the cover image and read a blurb about the book on my website.

Hi, Robley. You'll probably be able to order it on-line from Chapters.ca . . . I'll put a link on my website when arrangements are in place.

Excellent, Anita. Did I mention they make excellent gifts for birthdays, Christmas, Hanukkah, and many other festive occasions? :-)
