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

with 9 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

    • 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!
