Sgt. Windflower Goes Audio

Cover Walker

The Audiobook version of The Walker on the Cape is here!! The first book in the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries is now available in an audiobook version. Narrated by Frank Kearney it is a completely different experience. One you won’t want to miss.

Here’s a link to the audiobook on Audible and a sample

https://www.audible.ca/pd/The-Walker-on-the-Cape-Audiobook/B07PNRVCKV?qid=1552936232&sr=1-1&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_1&pf_rd_p=65c74350-6dfb-47fa-85fd-1459a4762abd&pf_rd_r=6XRSJF47FWC783HG2CH3&

Some early listeners said:

“To hear the book read in a Newfoundland accent is a game changer. As a reader, I create visual images of what I read, as I read; a dream-like visual. Hearing it read this way connects it to place more firmly. For the dream-like visual, it is as if the B&W dream is now presented in colour.”

“I absolutely LOVE this treatment of the work. Easy to follow, clear and easily understood but authentic with its local narrator who clearly did his reading and preparation beforehand to get the phrasing as natural as possible.”

Book 8 in Progress

The first draft of Book 8 in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series is done. Put “The End” on it and sent it off to the story editor. Many changes to come but soon it will be over to the wonderful beta readers. It will be published in the early Fall by Ottawa Press and Publishing.

One of the joys of being a writer is to see your books on the bookshelves of a book store. It’s even better when it’s in one of your favourite bookstores. Here are 3 of my favourite independent bookstores where you can find the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery: Darkest Before the Dawn

Annual Windflower Holiday Book Sale

 

It’s time for the 6th Annual Windflower Holiday Book Sale. For the last five years I have been my share of the profits from the December sales of all Sgt. Windflower books to a great community cause. It’s a great way for me to give back a little to people and organizations who need so much, especially this time of year. In the last five years we have been able to donate nearly $3,000.00 to community groups who really need our support.

This year I will be donating $5.00 from the sale of every Windflower book to the Minwaashin Lodge-Indigenous Women’s Support Centre in Ottawa. This facility is a healing centre in Ottawa that provides a range of programs and services to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are survivors of domestic and other forms of violence, and who may also be suffering the effects of the residential school system.

The mission of Minwaashin Lodge-Indigenous Women’s Support Centre is to provide wholistic programs and services for grandmothers, women, children and youth impacted by family violence and residential schooling. All programs and services are provided in the context of cultural beliefs and values as part of the healing journey.
