Free (K) Prose to Go: Tales from a Private List (var ed.) [Canadian Lit. Anthology]

Free on Amazon US from Bridgeross Communications:


Prose to Go: Tales from a Private List


"Peek into the private lives of 18 professional writers from the North West Territories to Prince Edward Island in this anthology described by the New York Journal of Books as an "eclectic mix of memories of shared love, laughter, and hope (that) should appeal to a wide readership". Drive through the North West Territories with Helena Katz as she drives a herd of alpacas to their new home in her backyard. Join Trudy Kelly Forsythe at the Rolling Stones Big Bang Tour and Barbara Florio Graham in her encounter with actor Peter Falk (aka Columbo). Watch award winning cookbook author Julie Watson wrestle with a lobster on TV. Cry with Barbara Bunce Desmeules Massobrio as she describes My Life Now and with Hilda Young as she comes to terms with her son's suicide while Irene Davis deals with a vanished voice and Fred Desjardins with growing older.The New York Journal of Books stated this volume "deserves to find a place in every public library collection."

I noticed this same Canadian publisher has another free offering on Amazon US today, thought I would highlight for all the 'locals' on the Board.
[Complete with obligatory Leacock reference...]

My Life and Other Lies: Tales From the Writer's List by Steve Pitt


"Is it possible to defend yourself from a 'roid raged body builder with a 'roid raged Chihuaha? Have you ever been seen in your backyard trying to collect a pee sample from your dog with a bone china tea cup? Has a close relative ever waved a dead rat under your nose and asked you if it was fresh enough to eat? For nearly a decade Steve Pitt has been amusing his fellow writers with his off-beat postings on professional writer list-servs. His topics include everyday subjects like friends, family and his numerous side careers as militia soldier, movie extra, armored truck guard, resort cook, and stay-at-home dad. His fellow writers have compared Steve's humour to Bob Newhart, David Sedaris and Stephen Leacock. Many of these list-serv yarns have gone on to find publication in Canadian Living, Chatelaine, Toronto Life, Stitches, Canadian Health and the Globe and Mail. Here is what other writers are saying about Steve Pitt's writing: "These true life tales range from the gently picaresque to the wildly funny. Leacock Redux"William Deverell, award winning crime novelist, Pender Island BC "He's pee your pants funny. This book should come with a warning label or pack of adult diapers" Helena Katz, author/journalist, Fort Smith, NWT "He surfaces with novel insights and bust-a-gut laughs every time. Steve Pitt is an expert storyteller, both wickedly funny and deeply generous * a master of observational humour with heart." Joanne Carnegie, Professional Writers Association of Canada, Monreal"

I actually created the thread because of the Canadian interest 'angle' - but then accidentally forgot to include that in the thread title - sorry!
I'll keep an eye out if it is discounted again...

Actually, Synamon it is lending-enabled. Would be happy to send it to you if you want to shoot me a PM. Although I know it's nicer to actually have on the "shelf" especially since it's an anthology. Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks for the offer, but the lending thing only works for US customers. The one you posted today looks more interesting anyway.
