Albatross still climbing the rankings…

Thursday, July 11th, 2019

I’ve been monitoring Bookmanager these last few weeks to see how Albatross is faring in the “future releases, Canadian author, fiction” category. It’s been climbing the charts and recently took another bump up the list where it now sits as the fourth most-anticipated novel soon to be released by a Canadian author. I’m just using my blog as a place to record the novel’s journey for posterity’s sake. Just about four and half weeks to go before Albatross hits bookstores.

Loanstars is a program that promotes the ten most anticipated books each month, as chosen by librarians across Canada. What an honour to discover that Albatross is on the Loanstars August list. I’m grateful for public libraries and the librarians who bring them to life. They do so much to promote reading and writers in Canada. I would have said that before this honour and I’ll continue to speak in dozens of public libraries every year. They are important and always seems to be under threat. Let’s step up and support our public library system.
