Next weekend Mark of the Breenan and I are going to an event--the Victoria Women's Expo. It's on March 7/8 at Pearkes Recreation Centre in Victoria, BC. It's going to be a huge event, with tons of vendors catering to all things women (think chocolate, ladies... oh yes).
As a vendor, I am allow to spread 2-for-1 coupons far and wide. So please--print off tickets, forward to your friends and co-workers and second cousin twice removed. It should be good fun!
Come say hello if you're there--I will have a draw you can enter to win a signed copy of Ignition, my new novel coming in Summer 2015. Hope to see you next weekend!
The exciting news this week is the launch of my new book trailer. I had a lot of fun searching for just the right photos and music to do Mark of the Breenan justice. It's on my home page so it's easy to find (www.emmashelford.com). I hope you enjoy, and pass it on if you know someone who might like it!
Mark of the Breenan now has a home--at Ivy's Bookshop! This cozy neighbourhood bookstore is snug in the heart of Oak bay Village in Victoria, BC. I encourage you to check it out if you're in the area. And if you're looking for a good read, head on over to the teen fiction section and pick up Mark of the Breenan ($11.99). Happy reading!
On November 1st, The Prospect Lake Christmas Craft Fair kindly hosted my first public appearance with my new book, Mark of the Breenan. To mark the occasion I dressed up in my medieval finery--as close to an Ellie-costume as I could manage--and brought along my little stack of books.
It was a great success. I met some wonderful people that day with encouraging comments, many of whom bought a book. I'm very excited for them to read it. Mark of the Breenan is now out in the world.
