Love for our Authors!
“[Claire Wilkshire'sThe Love Olympicsis a] pleasant and humorous collection about love in all forms that follows a set of characters in a community in St. John’s, Newfoundland. I absolutely adored this collection!”
“[P]eopled with frank, vulnerable, often extraordinary voices … [Rock Paper Sex Volume 2byKerri Cull] is another ranging and pointed take, shedding light on a shadowed occupation.”
“[Amanda Dorothy Jean]Bulman’s casual, yet polished recipe-writing feels refreshing […] In addition to recipes, [Salt Beef Buckets: A Love Story] explores things like rug hooking, berry picking, hunting and fishing. You'll learn how to build a fire for a boil-up, grow seedlings for a garden, or blend herbs and flowers for tea. In fact, you could consider this book an introduction to living and eating well in Newfoundland and Labrador – downhome 'hygge,' if you will.” —Jonathan Randell Smith, Eating an Island
