Soldier of the Horse in Edmonton
Here are a couple of lonely copies of "Soldier of the Horse" on a counter at historic Audreys Books in Edmonton. This delightful store goes back to the days of Canadian icon Mel Hurtig, and they made a lot of room for my book. (There were other copies on display.)
The downtown store is open most nights, with a space in the lower floor for visiting authors and listeners. After reading and discussion, everybody moves upstairs for coffee and food, and the author is ensconced at a table near the front to sign copies of books.
Besides featuring visiting authors, Audreys has regular appearances by the Canadian Authors Association Alberta Branch's Writer-in-Residence, a strong draw for developing writers.
