I have a lovely friend in Toronto who recommended I contact her favorite bookstore in Toronto, Another Story Books. I sent an email to the owner and felt excited to begin the next stage of my push to get my books into independent bookstores across the country.
This feels really exciting for me, especially because I spent about six years of my life living in Ottawa, Montreal and visiting Toronto. As well as living in Calgary for four years. So I will work on creating a list of bookshops and if you have a favorite, leave a comment and I will see about getting my books into a shop near you!
