Joy Lynn Goddard has teamed up with husband Daniel Pike to write adult fiction. Moonshadow, their first novel, has global appeal and won a Canada Book Award. Besides novels, they’ve written Buyers, Liars, Sellers and Yellers, a collection of humorous short stories about the real estate industry. Although she is well-known for her young adult and junior fiction—starting with the award-winning Daredevils and including Hello, my name is Emily, Charlie’s Song, Jazz, When Pigs Fly, and Mrs. Maloney’s Garden—her adult novels are quickly attracting attention. They crisscross romance, mystery, and suspense genres.
Joy and Dan divide their time between Guelph and Belleville, Ontario, where they spend time with family when not working on another book

I find book promotion daunting, but the best marketing method for a new unknown author would be through social media. allauthor.com is especially helpful I've found. Facebook groups are good as well. Please consider following me on goodreads and allauthor.com and I will be glad to follow you. Writers help each other(less)

“There are stories hidden in the language we use, whether we're conscious of them or not. They tell the truth of our hearts and minds.”
Cheryl Strayed, Brave Enough

“Soon after arrival at residential school, we were assigned a number that would become our identity. I became Number 1 on the girls' side. Ninety years after she left St. Joseph's Mission, my grandmother still remembered she was Number 27. My mom remembers her number was 71. Thankfully, our numbers were not tattooed on our skin.”
