Support from community encourages authors
Editor: First, we would like to thank Brenda Anderson for her first-class article (The Times, June 25), which expressed so well how our book Surfacing came to be. Her first class article and photo were instrumental to the success of our book launch.
Thanks, too, to Coles book store in Willowbrook Shopping Centre, the IGA in Murrayville, Otter Co-op, and Wendel’s in Fort Langley for carrying our book and hosting meet-the-author events to promote it. We should also mention that Surfacing is available on Amazon in paperback form and for downloading from Kindle and Kobo. We also had great fun and a most successful day at Arts Alive.
This Sunday, Sept. 15, we will be at Porter’s Bistro at Five Corners in Murrayville, and look forward to meeting everyone from 12 to 3 p.m.
We are also enjoying tremendous response from local retirement homes — Langley Seniors Village, Langley Gardens, Harrison Pointe, Harrison Landing, Sunridge and Magnolia Gardens.
We loved being put on the hot seat by the residents who peppered us with questions about how two people could write one book. They were intrigued to learn that we composed Surfacing in an exchange of emails, taking about eight months to complete our first draft.
Thank you Langley, for helping to make Surfacing such a success and thanks to The Times for continuing to promote Langley’s authors and artists.
Jim McGregor and Natasha Jones,
