Tell Anna She's Safe, Brenda Missen - News

For the month of January and into February 2014, author/blogger Jill Edmondson is featuring "Authors and Excerpts" on her blog—a new author/novel excerpt/short commentary on the excerpt per day. Check out Jill's blog, and watch for an excerpt from Tell Anna She's Safe on February 3—as well as an excerpt from my friend Lisa de Nikolits' excellent novel Glittering Chaos on January 16.

Thank you to Jill for this awesome opportunity! Jill is the author of the Sasha Jackson P.I. series, which I am about to dive into. • • • • •

Past Events, Brenda Missen, Tell Anna She's Safe

The three launch parties for Tell Anna were a great success! Click here to check out the photos from the Toronto, Ottawa, and Combermere launches. The overwhelmed author would like to thank everyone who came out to celebrate the birth of her firstborn.

I have met wonderful people at all the book readings, signings and book club meetings I've done so far.
