Ed Groves, Peddlers ThreeEdward Groves has recently published Peddlers Three, a satirical novel about empire building in the world of corporate sales: In the late 1960s, three newly hired salesmen discover that getting ahead means getting in the line of fire—and dodging the bullets of company politics . . .

A fabulous read for anyone who is in sales. . . . Anyone who has ever been to a national sales meeting, or traveled to various locations to support manpower needs for a company, or climbed the corporate ladder will appreciate this work. Good reading. —Amazon Customer Review

History Wrangler keeps on roping 'em in

Rob Lennard, the History WranglerRob Lennard, who both writes and performs as "the History Wrangler," continues to capture a growing readership wth his Amazing Time Travel series for children. The award-winning novels feature teenage twins and their sidekicks who time travel back into Alberta's past, enjoy exciting adventures, and help shape history. Because the series is based on extensive research and is historically accurate, the books are not only entertaining but educational. Teachers are catching on, and one school recently purchased a class set to be used as part of the curriculum.

Lennard is currently working on the third book in the series, in which the characters travel back to the time of the two World Wars.

 

 

 

TWUC announces good news for self-published authors

Members of the Writers' Union of Canada (TWUC) recently voted in a referendum on whether or not to admit self-published book authors. The vote was 79 percent in favour of admitting qualified self-published authors.

This vote has to go through one final approval at the 2014 Annual General Meeting, May 26 to June 1, 2014. After this formality, the constitution will be amended and the membership criteria updated. To be eligible for TWUC membership, self-published applicants must demonstrate commercial intent, and their books must pass an anonymous peer review for professionalism.

American writers can join the US Authors Guild, which has been admitting self-published authors
since 2012.
