Love for our Authors!

"Wicks’s writing is also perfect. It is easy to read, funny and smart. She manages to merge the two different time lines flawlessly, 1997 & 2014 and does a good job with the two POV of both Jess and Cait."
- Kenzie, PagesofKenzie
"Fans of Ali Bryan and Amy Jones' stories of complicated family love—as well as Newfoundland fiction devotees in general—will want to pick up Terry Doyle's THE WARDS […] THE WARDS is rich with humour, but also with heart—the end is a gorgeous gut-punch. So good."
-Kerry Clare - Kerryreads
"I found the material presented in this book interesting and touching — sometimes also, as in the story of Eléazar — truly horrifying. I liked the approach, especially in the beginning: the presentation of the fragmentary historical materials relating to Robert Goulet’s career, together with the ominous repetition of the advertisements for the sale of Métis scrip."
-Susan Haley, The Fiddlehead
"If you think this book is too fancy for you, think again. McInnis is committed to demystifying cakes. His approach in Happy Belly is to introduce what he calls 'standard recipes.' These are the building blocks that are then mixed and matched to make all the rest of the recipes in the book."
- Philip Moscovitch, Atlantic Books
