Three new books: Blooma and the Portal by C.M. Hunter, Fire & Ice by Michel Barrow-Belisle, and Aggie's Voice by Donna Mann

Hi, Brian.
I first met you when I took a course with you at George Brown College.  Then again at one of your Creative Writing seminars, and a “How to get published” seminar … all of which helped me in one way or another to becoming a published author of my first children’s middle grade novel:  Blooma and the Portal, published by Sun Dragon Press.
Thank you very much!

Blooma and the Portal  (for tweens, ages 8 to 12)
Blooma May Buckles is the new girl in town.  She’s adjusting fairly well to life in Japan despite the fact that she misses her best friend back home in Canada, she has no job and her father works too much.  To make matters worse, she falls through a portal into a different dimension and must wait one full week before she can return home.  

 Turns out, the place she ends up in isn’t that bad, filled with adventure, a pie-room, other children who have fallen through portals from different places in the world and soccer playing robots, Blooma’s favourite sport.  Will she ever get back through the portal, back home to her parents?  And why does everyone call her Blooma when that’s not her real name?

Blooma and the Portal is available for sale here.
For information on submitting to Sun Dragon Press, see here.


Hi, Brian.
I want to let you know that my new book, Fire & Ice in my Faerie Song trilogy, has been released with Astraea Press. It’s available from Amazon here on Kobo here and from Barnes & Noble here.
Thanks so much again for your help!
Best wishes,
Michele Barrow-Belisle

Hi, Brian.
I'm very excited about The Brucedale Press announcing that Aggie's Voice will be included in their 2013 publications. 
The press release states: On Agnes Macphail's birthdate, March 24, we announced the fall publication of Aggie's Voice by Donna Mann. This third book recreates 1908-1910 when Agnes attended Stratford Collegiate then Stratford Normal School for her teacher training. It ends when she begins her career at USS #7 Saugeen and Arran. 

More details here.
Thank you, Brian, for your ongoing workshops where as participants, we gain valuable insight and encouragement.
