The book signing tour begins. I was heading for Saskatchewan this summer anyhow, so Bookkus set me up at Chapters and McNally Robinson books in Saskatoon. I have no idea how many will sell. It is a summer long weekend, so maybe I shouldn’t expect too much. I have bookmarks and a banner made. July 2015 Saskatoon: Chapters Indigo Friday,
FINAL RESPONSE 4 star rating – firefighter thriller. Yes, it is doing well in the early going. Pretty darn good. I’m pleased people like it. I enjoyed writing it and really only expected 3 stars which is a ‘like’. I am the first Canadian firefighter to write firefighter fiction in Canada.

I plan to put all my juvies into paperback maybe by the end of summer 2015. I’m not exactly sure what genre this story will fit into. Possibly
