Yes, my Canadian publisher could sell the books in the States, but they are a very small (3 people) team out of Halifax with limited pull south of the border. That means that yes, they could make my books available on Amazon, but probably could not get them into bookstores or get any kind of buzz for them.(less)

No matter how many rejections you get, keep writing. Even if you have a book deal, keep writing. While you're waiting to hear back about the cover, keep writing. Just. Keep. Writing.(less)

“I decided the least I could do was to sit with Mrs. Anderson. Heading to the dining car, I ordered my third pot of tea (my first three-pot problem — Mr. Holmes would be so proud) to be delivered to her compartment rather than mine.”
Angela Misri, Jewel of the Thames

“The corners of her mouth turned up in a wry smile. “Better and better. Your grandmother’s looks and your grandfather’s brains. A deadly combination, I must say.”
