Coming in April: A Book Fair for the Moncton Area

with 2 comments

April will be a welcome month for book lovers!

Come to the First Annual Greater Moncton/Riverview/Dieppe Independent Book Fair.

30 tables, 38 authors! Lots and lots of books!




I will be there with all my books:

Kaye Eliot Mysteries,

Meniscus Science Fiction,

award-winning poetry

and, for the first time,

a children’s book!


Wink in the Rain is about an elf who lives at the edge of a garden.

Wink loves the garden but he does not like the rain.

Visit with Wink and his friends as he finds a way to keep his wings dry.



I often include black and white drawings in my books

but the drawings for Wink in the Rain needed lots of colour.

I used GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) to draw Wink, the plants in the garden,

the raindrops and Wink’s friend, the red-backed salamander.




I will be showing Wink in the Rain for the first time at the Greater Moncton Independent Book Fair.


Write the date in your calendar now: April 22nd. 10am – 4pm. Riverview Lions Community Center.


If you are an author who’d like to participate in the Book Fair, please contact Allan Hudson at for details and registration.

Stay tuned for more about the Book Fair


Wink in the Rain!

All my best,
