Where Desert Spirits Crowd the Night Where Desert Spirits Crowd the Night
Triskell Press, 2015

A charming novella about one of Newfordís best-loved characters: artist and dreamer Sophie Etoile. Lured by mystical Native American flute-player Kokopelli, Sophie opens a door in her dreams only to find herself in the wild Sonoran desert, her way back vanished. In her quest to return she gets sidetracked by Coyote, up to his usual mischief. A poignant tale touching on loss, hope and community.

First published in Worlds of Fantasy and Horror #2, Fall, 1994. Cover art by Stephanie Lostimolo.

The Very Best of Charles de Lint (2010) The Very Best of Charles de Lint
Triskell Press, 2014
You can get the Kindle version of The Very Best of Charles de Lint at Amazon. And if you need a free Kindle reader you can get that here .

We've just released our Triskell Press e-book of The Very Best of Charles de Lint. On the advice of other indie authors, I'm trying out Amazon's KDP (Kindle Prime) program for 90 days. KDP subscribers can download the book and read it for free. I'm only doing this because I'm trying to expand my readership and find some new fans, and Amazon's KDP subscriber base is huge. Apparently I'll reach a multitude of readers who've never heard of me. Word-of-mouth is crucial for any author to succeed, so it also really helps me if you share this announcement. And once again, I owe a BIG debt of gratitude to Charles Vess, who kindly offered his cover art for this book. MaryAnn and I have the original hanging in our house. Lucky, eh?

Trader Trader

I'm delighted to announce that the digital version of Trader is now live. I love this cover. I sure wish I had a mother of pearl inlay of a crow on the headstock of one of my guitars, but I guess if I want one like that I'll need to go to Newford and have my name put on the waiting list at Max Trader's shop.

The Little Country The Little Country

You can get the Kindle version of The Little Country at Amazon and in other formats at Smashwords. And if you need a free Kindle reader you can get that here .

As promised, we've finally finished and released the e-book of The Little Country. It was so much fun revisiting this story and I'm particularly happy with MaryAnn's cover design which is based on reference photos we took while researching the book.

Jodi and the Witch of Bodbury Jodi and the Witch of Bodbury
Triskell Press, 2014
You can get the Kindle version of Jodi and the Witch of Bodbury at Amazon and in other formats at Smashwords. And if you need a free Kindle reader you can get that here .

Jodi Shepherd, a feisty teenage orphan raised by her aunt in the English village of Bodbury, spends most of her time helping her eccentric inventor friend, Denzil Gossip, with his menagerie of beloved animals. When a group of local waifs, the Tatters Children, speculate that the Widow Pender is keeping a Small in her house, Jodi has to break in to discover the truth. What follows is a lyrical tale filled with whimsy, danger and intrigue, where a witch or her fetch may approach anyone unawares and cast spells on them, where dead men talk and Smalls—tiny people—are alive. Originally appearing as a story-within-a-story in de Lint's acclaimed novel The Little Country (written for adults), finally the magical tale of Jodi's adventures, published for the first time on its own, can be enjoyed by young adults as well as mature readers.

In Jack the Giant-Killer, where magical creatures carry on a secret existence in the streets and parks of modern Ottawa, Jacky Rowan once slew giants. In this thrilling sequel, she's tricked then enslaved by a master of vicious, Unseelie creatures.

The cap shows Jacky an unimaginable side of Ottawa and sets her on an impossible quest to save the good fairies from their evil counterparts.

Studying under painter Vincent Rushkin, young artist Isabelle Copley becomes so adept that her paintings take on a life of their own. This riveting Newford novel is about the power of art; about love, loyalty and the depths of friendship; innocence, cruelty, greed & denial; and the intertwining of these. It's about facing buried memories and dreams, and ultimately, the fragility and strength of the human spirit.

Now, twenty years later, Isabelle must face a past that she has long denied, and once again unlock the slumbering power of her brush.

Someplace to Be Flying Seven Wild Sisters
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2014
When it comes to fairies, Sarah Jane Dillard must be careful what she wishes for. She may have thought she wanted to meet the fairies of the Tanglewood Forest, but that was before she knew the truth about them. When Sarah Jane discovers a tiny man wounded by a cluster of miniature poison arrows, she brings him to the reclusive Aunt Lillian for help. But the two quickly find themselves ensnared in a longtime war between rival fairy clans, and Sarah Jane's six sisters have been kidnapped to use as ransom. Her only choice is to go after them, and with the help of several mythical friends—from the Apple Tree Man to a cat called Li'l Pater—she'll have to find a way to untangle herself from the fairy feud before she and her sisters are trapped in their world forever.

Loons mate for life, but one year up on our lake near Bouchette, Quebec, only one of our nesting pair returned. Happily, we have a number of them back on the lake now, but this slow air serves as a reminder of the fragility of life.
