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.
