As editor at Chronicler Publishing I've been working to get a new book out for the Xmas market. We are working on a historical novel by Mary Tweed, presently titled "Hole in the Night" that is the story of a young Huron girl, White Corn, who is captured by an Iroquois tribe and adopted into it as was the custom in the 16th century.
As well, I'm working on my latest novel, "Black Gold" that is the story of a young Albertan, Peter O'liam who lived in the period from 1925 to 1950, a time of the Great Depression, World War II, and the change from coal to petroleum energy after the war.
I'm hoping to have it ready for the Centennial Home Coming celebration of the hamlet of Evansburg that will take place in August, 2010 as it features that community when it changed from a coal mining town to an agricultural community.
So, I'm very busy between may two jobs--writer and editor.
