The Final Forest Friday

UPDATE: Congrats to Victoria, winner of the giveaway! Your foresty goodies are in the mail.

Well, here we are.

In the three years I spent working on The Boreal Forest and preparing to release it into the world, I never in my wildest dreams expected to have to do it during a pandemic. And it’s been both harder and more hopeful than I could have imagined. I lost opportunities to celebrate… but new ones arose that wouldn’t have been possible under other, more “normal” circumstances. I’ve learned things and met people, and been so proud to see how members of the literary community came together to support each other – not to mention all the kids and parents and teachers whose lives were instantly turned upside down.

Huge thanks to my partners in online promo:

Kids Can Press and the members of the Spring Reading Relay (check out my video before it’s gone!)

Erin Thomas and Centennial College

Carmen Oliver, Darren LeBeuf, and the International Day of Forests

1000 Islands Writers Festival

The Ontario Science Centre

Stephen Hurley and VoicEd Radio



And a special shout out to the readers, teachers, bloggers, and bookstores who contacted me online, or bought a book, or told your friends to buy my book. I couldn’t do this without you. Thank you all!
