If you’re curious about where Moonshine Promises came from — as well as how a lifelong member of the Introverts Club has weathered book promotion — check out “Peddling Moonshine,” an article just published in the fall edition of The Angle, the newsletter of The Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English.
I recently had the opportunity to share more about Moonshine Promises and the genesis of this collection of stories on the Art Waves radio show (part of The Hawk 101.5 FM programming). The interview aired on Sunday evening, August 22nd, but you can listen to the archive now using this link.
I am excited to share some local coverage about Moonshine Promises from the Haldimand area newspaper, The Sachem. Please use this link to read the article “Dunnville Man Releases First Fiction Book” written by Tamara Botting.
You can also order the book from 21Five, the campus bookstore at Redeemer University (which is where I enrich young minds) and pick it up locally (for those of you in the Ancaster/Hamilton Ontario area).
There’s nothing quite like holding onto a new book, but it’s an amazing feeling to have a print copy of Moonshine Promises in my own hands after several years of writing and rewriting these stories. So excited to page through my author copies! You can get your own copy too! Check out this page for links to buy Evan and Mae’s adventures.
Exciting news of the day, Moonshine Promises is now available to purchase online at my publisher Wipf and Stock’s website! Use this link to see the page and buy the book.
Moonshine Promises will be available on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca and in e-book formats in the coming weeks, stay tuned here to those updated links. (There’s even rumors of an author-read audiobook version on the horizon…)
It’s official! My debut published collection of stories, Moonshine Promises, is coming out soon. (Officially published on July 21, 2021!) Recently, I got the cover image from the publisher. Rosalinda Perez’s playful illustration reflects the tone of the stories very well!
My short story “Under the Honey Moon” has been longlisted for the 2020 Peter Hinchcliffe Short Fiction Award from The New Quarterly! See all the stories listed on the Peter Hinchcliffe Short Fiction Award webpage.
EDIT: “Under the Honey Moon” is the opening story of my first published collection of short stories, Moonshine Promises.
