Virtual Book Tour - Rachel Bohem's I Am NOT!

This Friday we will be launching Rachel Boehm's 'Brutally Honest' memoir, I Am NOT! We had always planned to do a virtual book tour but that would have been combined with some in-person events with the author... until the pandemic hit. So, we 'pivot' and do what we can. Rachel will be doing a vitural launch party sponsored by ALX Community and Alexandria Living Magazine and you are all invited to join! It will be June 26 (which is also International Self-Esteem Day) at 6 pm (Eastern time). The virtual blog tour will begin on launch day and will be ongoing so, any bloggers who would like to join in, leave a comment below or send me an email at Here's where Rachel will be featured in the coming weeks, along with links to other articles that have been posted pre-launch. We will update as new bloggers/reviewers come on board! Make sure you visit these blogs and sign up for their updates! I Am NOT! by Rachel Boehm - Virtual Book To

Regina Author Releases First Children’s Book at Age Eighty-Seven

In celebration of Book Lovers Day, Regina-based author, Jackie Arnason, will launch her first children’s picture book, Hambone – Why Pigs Have Curly Tails , on August 9, 2020, partner published with OC Publishing. The tale is one of many that Arnason made up for her children more than 50 years ago. “I started making up stories way back when I was a little girl,” said Arnason. “But when my children were very small I would be putting them to bed and they would ask me to tell them a story. An idea would just pop into my head and away we’d go.” Even though it’s a long time in the making, Hambone’s message is still relevant today. “Hambone, with some friends along the way, shows us that when we work together and show kindness to others we can all help each other on our journeys,” said Laura Shepherd, a literacy/numeracy specialist in Regina. When Arnason was a little girl growing up in Regina in the “Dirty Thirties” she was the eldest of seven children. Author,
