    A really great book is more than ink and paper. Ask any writer and they will tell you that writing a book is not easy. It takes time, dedication, creativity, learned skills and research. They will also tell you that it is only half the battle. Getting published requires nothing less. It’s hard to know how to even begin getting published today.

    Canadian Authors Association of Niagara Region have many successful authors and we have three who are newly published who would like to share the pros and cons and dirty details of what it took for them to get published in today’s global marketplace.

    Colin BrezickiA Case for Dr. Palindrome: A darkly comic story of one man’s struggle to forgive and redeem himself
    Maryann BreukelmanThe Secret Bookstore: A fable with elements of magic realism
    Sharon FrayneCaught Between The Walls: A historical fiction set in the once mighty Niagara Courthouse and Jail

    Space is limited so please register for this workshop/panel discussion with St. Catharines library at 905-688-6103, ext. 211 or by email at gctoasties@gmail.com.
