  1. Hi Julie, Very sad to hear about Duthies. I am extremely upset by the plight of independent booksellers in general. The closure of Duthies is the third such closure I have heard of in just one year. Although I market some of my books with Chapters the majority of them are sold through independent bookstores in both Alberta dn B.C. We personally know many of the staff who kindly promote the sales of our books and who are familiar with most authors that sell books in their stores. If any of you have been in Banff in the past year, you will know that the Book and Art Den have also closed their doors. They continue to be missed by many tourists and locals that have vistied that store for years.

  2. Congratulations on your submission to How to Achieve a Heaven on Earth. It sounds like a wonderful book.
