Thumbs up Louise Penny - Three Time Agatha Award Winner

Canadian mystery writer Louise Penny has now reached six installments of her Armand Gamache books. This year she won the Agatha Award three years in a row -- no other author has ever done that. Her books have been translated into other languages. She's a former Toronto CBC radio host; she now lives in Montreal and writes full-time. More details about her splendid work here: www.louisepenny.com

None of her ebooks are available in Canada (hardcover, paperback, audiobooks, yes -- but not one ebook). That also means not one of her ebooks is in any Canadian library either. Grrrrrrrrrrr!

Until now. Book two, A Fatal Grace (also published as Dead Cold) is finally available to Canadians in Kindle format. NONE of her books are available at Kobobooks yet.
Winter in Three Pines and the sleepy village is carpeted in snow. It's a time of peace and goodwill - until a scream pierces the biting air. There's been a murder.

Local police are baffled. A spectator at the annual Boxing Day curling match has been fatally electrocuted. Despite the large crowd, there are no witnesses and - apparently - no clues.

Called in to head the investigation, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache unravels the dead woman's past and discovers a history of secrets and enemies. But Gamache has enemies of his own. Frozen out of decision-making at the highest level of the Surete du Quebec, Gamache finds there are few he can trust. As a bitter wind blows into Three Pines, something even more chilling is sneaking up behind him...
Coming next month (September), her latest (book six): Bury Your Dead.

Highly recommended!

I am very pleased to announce that Fatal Grace has just popped up at Kobobooks in Canada as well. This it slightly odd given the Canadian print edition is actually called Dead Cold but at least it can be bought now. Any mystery lovers out there ... Louise Penny is worth checking out!

It's a rights issue ... the electronic rights were not fully cleared for Canada but the publisher is working on it. It relates to quotations and such, not the core novel.

A Rule Against Murderr can now be purchased in Canada from the Sony eReader store as well, but not, oddly enough, from Kobo or Amazon.

For those in Toronto, Louise Penny will be at an event at the Toronto Reference Library just north of Bloor on Yonge on Fri Sep 24 at lunch hour. It's the launch for the 6th title in her celebrated Armand Gamache series. Annoyingly, I have a business thing that makes it impossible for me to attend.

http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/e...029&print=true

Happily, the e-title is for pre-sale at Amazon.

Louise Penny's latest Chief Inspector Armand Gramache of Three Pines in Quebec -- Bury Your Dead -- was auto-released this morning right on schedule. I woke up, and magically, there it was ($9.99 later) on my Kindle 3 wifi.

Plus, over at kobobooks, The Brutal Telling has finally arrived for Canadians. This is book five in the series, and the one that won Ms Penny her third Agatha Award in a row for Year's Best Novel -- something no other writer has done.

Sony has it available.

You will need to install Reader Library. But then after you have it, you can put it on your Kobo reader.

No, it doesn't. The query was about the availability in Canada from Kobo or Sony, for that matter). Fatal Grace was in Canada briefly from Kobo but was pulled a few weeks later. A Brutal Telling remains the only title for sale here. Not even that title is at Amazon.

The series order, from Louise Penny's website: (Some books named differently by different publishers.)
Quote:
STILL LIFE
A FATAL GRACE / DEAD COLD
THE CRUELEST MONTH
A RULE AGAINST MURDER / THE MURDER STONE
THE BRUTAL TELLING
BURY YOUR DEAD
I'm looking for the entire series in ePUB format and have only found the following two available in Canada.

kobobooks: The Brutal Telling

Sony's Reader Library: A Rule Against Murder

I emailed the author today about the availability of The Inspector Gamache Series in ePUB format for Canadians. She kindly responded within a few hours that "the eversions seem spotty at best in Canada! Hope that regularizes soon."

I really don't want to format shift. I hope that regularizes soon, too.
