John Toews, the ever charming special events coordinator at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg, wrote to me with big news last week: “I can happily announce that Ravenscraig is Number 4 on our 2012 Manitoba Bestseller list.” The list is called the Best of the West 2012.
Thank you, McNally Robinson, for being so supportive of authors, and thank you to the readers who have been so wonderful in recommending Ravenscraig to their friends.
I will remember 2012 as a wonderful year of connecting with old friends, and making new ones, through the excitement of being a first time author. I was thrilled to see two old friends, Kathy and Linda, who came out to my talk about the Winnipeg passengers on the Titanic. We first met when we were in grade 4.
2013 is getting off to a terrific start. More news to come.
