I am officially sold out of my 'CANADA' book! I now have just a handful of books left for my library. The bestselling book was published by Key Porter Books in 2005 and a total of 25,000 copies were printed over 3 editions. When Key Porter Books went into receivership in 2011 after H.B. Fenn collapsed, I purchased the remaining 2,140 books. I sold the last 100 copies this week. I suspect that a few copies could be found in select book stores across the country.
The good news is that Les Editions des Plaines of Winnipeg, MB is currently in the process of translating my 'CANADA' book into the French language! While I have re-scanned the images and made significant changes in the layout to reflect my own vision, the book is essentially the same although it will sport a brand new cover. Les Editions des Plaines will simultaneously be releasing English and French hard cover editions. This opens up new markets previously unexplored in French Canada, the USA and Europe, as well as in other French speaking countries. I am very excited about this first book project with Les Editions des Plaines and more projects are in the works! Soon enough, I will be traveling to a favorite place - Friesens in Altona, MB - for yet another round of prepress work and press checks.
Further details to come soon!

Would You Like to Publish A Book of Your Own ?
Don't miss this event!
I love books! I particularly love 'fine books'. Many people dream of publishing a book but don't have a clue about how to go about it. Beginning with the idea and followed by the creation of the works (paintings, photograph, prose, etc), there comes a time when the idea must be put down on paper for all to see and enjoy. Finding a publisher today is no easy task as there are not only fewer publishers around but also more people wanting to publish a book.
