New Maryland Fall Show – Jane’s books and paintings for sale!!!

with 12 comments

Last year I tried selling my books and paintings at a local craft fair. I had so many ‘fears’. I wondered if I would sell anything. I wondered how it would feel, sitting there waiting for someone to be interested in my wares. I wondered if I would have any money when I went home (I saw so many things at the fair I wanted to buy)!


I was pleasantly surprised. I sold both books and paintings. Sitting, watching the vendors and browsers, was very relaxing. And I loved meeting the other vendors and bought some items I still love!


This Saturday November 4, 9AM – 2PM, I will be at the New Maryland Fall Show (held at the Faith Baptist Church, 525 New Maryland Highway, New Maryland, New Brunswick). I will be selling copies of my books and some of my paintings.


my books:

‘in the shelter of the covered bridge’ (Chapel Street Editions, 2017) – my new book of poems about plants and animals living in and around some of the covered bridges in New Brunswick (if the book doesn’t arrive from the printers in time, I will be taking pre-orders)

‘within easy reach’ (Chapel Street Editions, 2016) – poems about wild edibles and other local foods


three books in my science-fiction series (CreateSpace, 2017):

Meniscus: Crossing The Churn

Meniscus: South from Sintha

Meniscus: Winter by the Water-climb










some of my paintings:


I am getting close to my 500th follower! If you leave a comment on this post (WordPress or Facebook), you will be entered into a draw for a free, postage-paid paperback copy of my new book ‘in the shelter of the covered bridge’! One entry per commenter per post.


If you live in the New Maryland area of New Brunswick, I hope I will see you on Saturday November 3, 2017 at the New Maryland Fall Show!

at the Faith Baptist Church on the new Maryland Highway, 9 AM to 2 PM.

  1. Beautiful work! And this is a great idea… I may have to explore this idea too. Best wishes for the Fall Show – wish I was closer!

    • Hi Meg. I was hesitant to try a show, but I am so glad I did. They are hard to get a vendor’s spot though. Start looking in summer for a Christmas Show! I wish you were here too, but if you see a book or painting you like, there is always the mail! Jane

  2. A book. Another book. And another book. Paintings. More paintings. Poet. Author. Painter. I suppose you do a little sculpting and rock climbing in your spare time? Go get your pilot’s licence, why don’t ya? Are you still speaking to little people? Congrats, my dear. Well-deserved. You’re talented, and a very hard worker. All the best to you.

    • Thanks. I will. I should have said that I’ll see lots of familiar faces at the sale so it will be very comfortable!
