Chronicler Publishing moving

Chronicler Publishing will soon be moving to Edmonton, Alberta. For the past years Chronicler Publishing offices have been located at Jones Beach, a small sub-division on Lake Isle in the Lac Ste. Anne County.
Although most of our business is via the Internet, it was felt that it was time to move to the city to be closer to the literary and cultural facilities to enhance our business and literary opportunities.
The move will be done slowly and our contact information will remain the same; only our physical address and phone number will change.
It will be business as usual.

Alberta: Black Go;ld

My latest historical novel, "Alberta: Black Gold," will soon be released by Chronicler Publishing. It is the story of a young farm boy, Peter O'Liam, who in 1936 leaves a poor farm near Evansburg, Alberta to make his way in a hostile world of the Great Depression.
The Second World War lifts him from poverty to war as he joins the army to fight against Nazi Germany and then into the economic growth that develops.

Wheels of Fortune

We, at Chronicler Publishing, have just released "Wheels of Fortune" by Ian G. Watson. Its official launch will take place in Stratford, Ontario on August 8, from 3:00pm to 8:00 pm at the Queen and Albert B & B.
"Wheel of Fortune" is a novel of three middle-aged men who, in 1900, decide to take a bicycle tour of rural Ontario to avoid the summer heat of Toronto.
This results in a change in each man's fortune that will change his life forever.
Mr. Watson tells and intriguing and humorous story with a good dose of Ontario history to boot.
It is a most enjoyable read for a summer day, and even beyond.

Well, we are well into the new year, and I suppose that everyone's resolutions have fell by the wayside :) Mine have!
I'm still trying to finish the first draft of my novel "Black Gold." But I'm very busy as editor of Chronicler Publishing so I'm using that as an excuse for my writer block!
