Livia Tsang designed our logo. She created the cover art for FROM THE COTTAGE PORCH. She added illustrations to the start of each chapter. Livia is a dream to work with.
Today’s book launch for FROM THE COTTAGE PORCH was a great success! Approximately 80 people attended. Including online pre-launch sales we sold 181 copies of the book. This is a great start for a new compay. Thank-you to Mary E. McIntyre for this picture of the attending authors/contributors and a picture of me. James Dewar was a wonderful MC. Pat O’Prey filled the room with campfire songs and classic rock. His smooth voice and guitar were the perfect combo to get the cottage porch rockin’ !

This beautiful book features the talents of 31 outstanding writers from across Ontario. The 43 stories, memoirs and poems are organized using the passing of time at the cottage. From the dewey, crisp mornings filled with birdsong to long afternoons on the water to lively evenings spent around the campfire, the book moves from sunrise to sunset.
