I will be the highlighted author of the week on www.highlightedauthor.com from August 25 to 29. Check it out!! #highlightedauth
We took a well-deserved break after the craziness of the December blog tour. We are now working on our second story, and in the planning stages of a short story to be published on this site only. And I'm busy translating Silent Words into French!
Christmas time was challenging, as 300 000 Torontonians lost power on Dec. 22 due to a major ice storm - including us. We were lucky and spent only 3 days in the dark, in a cold, cold house lit by a few scented candles. Some of our friends endured 5 days without power. More than ever, we appreciate being able to come to a cozy, warm house at night, especially when it's -20 degrees Celsius outside!
We just discovered an awesome review for our book on Amazon: "...Silent Words is a book about grief, about not being able to express your sorrow. It is sad, yet beautiful and leaves you with the feeling of hope." WOW! We love getting feedback and appreciate our readers taking the time to share their comments.
And finally, our book will now be recommended through "The Fussy Librarian", a website that matches quality books with readers' preferred genres & content .http://www.thefussylibrarian.com/
For unknown reasons, the hard cover version of Silent Words is not available on any of Amazon's websites and at Barnes & Nobles. However, the soft cover version and ebook are available, thank goodness!
If you want to purchase the hard cover version, please go to Evolved Publishing's Website. We're not too happy about this and our publisher is looking into the matter, but the sellers are not being very responsive to our queries at this point. Sorry :(
Our blog tour, i.e. an entire week of bloggers reviewing our book and posting their review on their blog and sometimes, on Amazon and Goodreads, is now over. We are SO happy with the wonderful comments we have received! Here are the links to the wonderful bloggers who took the time to read our story and write about it. Please pay them a visit and show the love!

It's Day 2 of our blog tour and things are going great! Got an awesome review from Gaele, on her I am Indeed blog.
"Gorgeous illustrations that have a touch of whimsy and cubic-feel build the feel for this hybrid picture book: children as young as 3 will delight in the illustrations, the words flow off the tongue with imagery in word and picture to keep the story at the center."
If you have read our book, let us know your thoughts or feel free to post a review on Amazon :)
On December 2, 2013, our first book, Silent Words, was released! Let's hope this is only the beginning of a great adventure.
There will be a blog tour in December, i.e. bloggers will review our books and publish their thoughts. Scary...but very exciting...! Please feel free to review the book on Amazon or Goodreads & help spread the word :)
Links to purchase the book are on my home page.
Nico & I would love to see you on our Facebook page. You can also friend me on Goodreads.
