As I am attending Words by the Water Literary Festival on the 7th (World Book Day) I thought I'd do a double freebie for Kindle on THE FORTHRIGHT SAGA

I'm doing a freebie for my novel Lantern in the Mist on March 14 (a Thursday).

Lantern in the Mist is in the women's fiction and American historical fiction category.

In 1899, stunning Kathleen Colby finds herself forced to embark on a perilous adventure with her disabled sister across America. During this unparalleled journey from Alaska to New York, she encounters compelling, dangerous characters, meets an attractive man of many secrets, and discovers what it is to be a woman in the late 1890s.

This amazing trip will eventually change the naive Kathleen into…the new woman of the early twentieth-century.

House of SilenceTriskele Books Author Collective

Triskele Books has recently set up a blog –

We originally ran a (not very successful) book club from the Triskele Books website, which we've now moved over to the blog.
We decided that from now on, we'll be featuring mostly indie published authors and their novels, with reviews and author interviews.
The first planned one for April is Linda Gillard's House of Silence.

Book Presentation – Picnic at the Iron Curtain: From the Fall of the Berlin Wall to Ukraine’s Orange Revolution

Location: The University of Toronto’s Munk Centre of Global Affairs, Room 208 N, North House, 1 Devonshire Place, Toronto

Date: Friday, March 8, 2013 beginning at 4 p.m.

Pre-registration at:  (free event)

Susan Viets worked as a journalist in Eastern Europe and the USSR during and after the collapse of communism. Starting in Budapest with the Guardian (1988 – 1990), she then became the first accredited foreign correspondent in Ukraine, reporting for the Independent (1990 – 1992) and the BBC (1994 – 1996). After a year with the International Red Cross in Bosnia-Herzegovina (1997 – 1998), she returned to Canada as a CBC news writer and producer. In 2004 she visited Ukraine and covered the Orange Revolution for the Independent on Sunday.

Her memoir,Picnic at the Iron Curtain: From the Fall of the Berlin Wall to Ukraine’s Orange Revolution  focuses on experiences of everyday people she encountered. East Germans, emboldened by news of Hungarian and Polish reforms, escaped in a picnic at the Iron Curtain just weeks before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Later, Chernobyl workers summed up Soviet incompetence when they described their evacuation to a purpose built safe town only to find the town was situated on radioactive land. In Picnic at the Iron Curtain, Viets tells adventure stories from a zone of change that stretched from Budapest to Bishkek and Chernobyl to Chechnya.

If you are a member of  The Alliance of Independent Authors and you would like to showcase your work on our Writers' Wednesdays, please send it it [email protected] to reach me no later than the Friday preceeding the Wednesday you would like it published.
