Please note that Vino Novellus will not be held this year in Canmore (March 2017) due to low sales and enthusiasm. We are currently in the process of revamping the event to make it smaller and more sustainable and hope to offer it again soon.

Courage to send files to printer ... ha! could be a long night.

Just can't let it go without one more final final run through for that one spelling or layout mistake that haunts.

OK< round 2.
Thanks for all the feedback.
Some people like colour, others think a photo should speak for itself as closely as possible. How about you? LEFT or RIGHT?

Jason LeeI really like the left, because it speaks more about what the book is about. However, the way it is currently, I feel it's more suited for a movie poster. If you could make it more simple like the one on the right, I think you might have something. Sorry, I'm a former ad man.

Jocey AsnongI think you are close, I recommend printing out your choices and come on down to bookstore. We will place the covers face out along the shelves and get you to stand about 6 feet away. Customer POV. Plus the walking test. I’m in all day tomorrow if you want to play.

Magdalena Martyna NowakRight one is pretty, probably even better than left one when it comes to composition, but it says noting about the book.

Esmé ComfortRight. Left is too busy. Right is spare, and makes me want to pick up the book to examine it to discover more.

We'd like your opinion.

With a new novel by David Smart coming next month about an iconic French mountaineering movie filmed under the noses of the German censors, which cover do you like better? LEFT or RIGHT? (a random voter will win a free copy)

This weeks quote is from David Smarts Above the Reich, which is timely as we are prepping his latest novel, set in France, in the needles of Chamonix! More on this soon, were working hard to get it our for Christmas.

Honored to have a story included in this upcoming anthology with the likes of Reinhold Messner, Wade Davis, Pat Morrow, and Amy Gigi Alexander among many others whom I admire.

Mine is a story of a journey many years ago that took a long time to fully understand. A snippet:

"The thing was - we knew it would end. It had to end, it was supposed to. We enjoyed the beer and sun without much thought to responsibility or pace because that was all going to be decided for us very soon, and there was no telling exactly when. Pre-emptively, the eight others had decided to leave several times now, and we’d pursued the farewell parties in such earnest that they’d missed the Karnataka bus each time.

We’d swim in the mornings and climb out of the surf and pass the stalls selling cold drinks and knick-knacks and Seven-Seas. Jim said, “Know why Shiva has so many incarnations? So they can sell anything to anybody.”

Jim was world-weary in his broader sense. I couldn’t guess his age. Maybe 30. He looked much older, but he was gregarious in small things, always giving things to the young boys running up to practice their English. In the oppressive heat on the way back to the empty fishing village, Jim said, “This monsoon is a hoax: it’s a way for the locals to get a break from the crowds.”
