Jacob and I were overwhelmed by the support of the almost 200 people who attended our launch at St. Mary’s University Wednesday evening. Friends came from Tatamagouche, Amherst, Truro, New Glasgow, East Dalhousie, and, of course, Wolfville. Dr. Dodds introduced us, Woozles sold every book we could scrape up, Kojo provided wonderful atmospheric music, Jacob spoke from his heart (and without notes) with his usual passion, and I managed to read without stumbling too much. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for your support and friendship; I hope the novel will contribute a few bricks to Jacob’s dream school in Sudan. Thanks also to The Kentville Advertiser, CBC Halifax and Breakfast Television for your interest and coverage.

As well as being available in bookstores, the novel can be purchased from Wadeng Wings of Hope, Jacob’s charitable society: http://www.wadeng.org (please see link in my Blogroll to the right…)

Red Deer Press is very generously donating 40% of sales through Wadeng to the foundation.
Next week, I’ll be visiting Lockeport Elementary School through the Writers in the Schools program and also presenting at a provincial school librarians’ conference in Pictou County. Today, I’m writing!:)

  1. CONGRATULATIONS, Jan. I hope you have a book signing in New Minas (or Wolfville) so that I can come home with a signed copy. 🙂 You have done an amazing thing with this book, and I wish you (and Jacob and his charity) much success.
