Joys of Writing, Blogging, and Winnipeg
There are any number of blogs that feature the writer's 5 best tips for getting an agent, or 10 ways to impress an editor. Personally, I am using my blog to reach out to people interested in the Canadian cavalry, the Great War, submarines, and Canadian forces in general. Hence my title, "Forces With History".
This coming weekend will, I hope, add to the list of people who have contacted me about "Soldier of the Horse". As noted in a previous blog, I will be signing books at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg (see http://www.mcnallyrobinson.com/event-12124/Robert-W.-Mackay----Book-Signing-#.UWwuZsqyqPY
Both my parents were from Manitoba, and I have always thought of Winnipeg as my second home, albeit seldom visited. Now I'll be taking "Soldier of the Horse" home, in a way, and hoping it gets a warm reception--to add to my list, and to fight off the frostbite!
