Happy New Year!
I am thrilled that the Winnipeg Free Press has selected Ravenscraig as one of top fiction titles in their annual “Best of the Year” book list.
The Canadian version of the book will soon be going to reprint through Manitoba publisher, Heartland Associates.
This has been a very exciting year for me in watching the book gain an audience outside of Canada. Few things are more exciting for an author than to have people you’ve never met tell you how they enjoyed reading your story.
The Kindle version of Ravenscraig, published in the US by Franklin and Gallagher, has had more than 12,000 downloads in 2012.
I am most thankful to those who take the time to post their reviews on Amazon. Ravenscraig is rated as 4.7 stars out of 5 with 21 reviews.
I was surprised to learn this morning that there are also reviews being posted in the UK! Very exciting, indeed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Ravenscraig
I read this book whilst in hospital and really enjoyed it. It combined a good yarn with a bit of social history in regard to the persecution of the Jews, their immigration from Europe, and their hardships and successes in Canada and the U.S.A. in an easy to read form. I am looking forward to reading book two!

One thought on “Ravenscraig Makes Winnipeg Free Press Best Book List 2012”
I would love to read your book. It sounds like something I would really enjoy but it is very frustrating when a Canadian can not buy a book written by a Canadian authour easily and tries multiple times and finally gives up. My attempts were with Amazon when it was offered and it is not available to Canadians. I checked with Chapters Indigo last week when I was in Kingston, ON. I had to tell them about it. I have tried closer to home in Kamloops, BC – all with no luck. Sorry, but I think your publishers are working against you (at least in your home market). Sad.
