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.

I Didn’t Win But I’m Still Happy

a-long-ways-from-home-cover1.jpg

I just came back from two award galas without any hardware, but I’m not disappointed in the least. Yes, I could have used the money, but I can always get money. I am still on a high from being nominated for a major Canadian book award. For those of you who don’t know, my book, A Long Ways from Home, was shortlisted for the Bony Blithe Award which every year recognizes the best in Canadian light mysteries.

I didn’t expect to win the Bony Blithe Award this year. It’s my first year as a finalist and two of my fellow nominees have won before. One of them, the great Elizabeth Duncan took home the award and I am very pleased for her. She deserved to win and I am just happy to have been nominated along with her, the great Cathy Ace, newcomer Ryan Aldred, who will win many awards for his writing, and Alan Bradley writes the fabulous Flavia de Luce series featuring a 12-year-old female chemist who hangs out in cemeteries.

I had a great time at both award events, especially the Bony Blithe Mini-Con. I met some old friends, made many new ones and learned a lot more about writing and about myself. We are never really alone in the writing world, as long as keep pushing ourselves out there, and as long as we have people and readers who care about us. Thank you to everyone who sent me good wishes and good karma. I felt your love. Now it’s time to get back to work. Book 6, A Tangled Web, is taking shape and will be out, I hope, in the fall. Til then, there’s always more work to do.

Hope to see some of you at these up-coming events:
