  1. I read your book, Storm Tide and I thought it was good. I have made a digital book talk in my language arts class in Mrs. McKinnon’s class and would like to share it with you if you’d like. Please email her if you’d like to see it.
    Thanks, Anson

  2. Hello,

    My name is Liv Wigen Carswell and I’m hosting a book launch for my first novel.

    I’m hoping you’ll be able to join me on August 13th at 6 pm, located in the Ambrosia Center in Victoria.

    The book is for New/Young adults based on life events, about a sixteen year old girl whose mom kills herself and whose boyfriend becomes abusive after a year of being together and then she starts to fall in love with a boy she just met. All of these things actually happened to me, which is why the handful of people that have read so far find it real and honest. I’m not making it up, I know what all of those things feel like and so do many other teens… which is why I wrote the book. So people will know that those things actually happen to people (friends, family, class mates) and even though it’s taboo, it needs to be addressed.

    All of the proceeds are going to NEED2, a suicide prevention and education center based in Victoria. I’ve attached the event link below for more information on it:

    Let me know if you might make it,

    All the best,
    Liv

    • Hi Sandra,
      Thanks for the note. My message for that book is that there is more than one way to be a performer, and that being a successful performer doesn’t have to mean going it alone or being better than everyone else. Sometimes it is much better to be part of a community, and to enjoy yourself rather than always trying to be better than the people around you.

  3. Hi Ms. Jones,

    I’m to be one of your reads for the flash critiquing component of the upcoming wordsthaw festival, but I fear I made a mistake in not submitting my 750 word piece until after the Malahat review closed their offices yesterday (possibly for the weekend?). I had thought I had until evening to submit, and now I’m finding myself unable to reach anyone to check in. Is it ok for me to submit directly to you?

    Thanks very much, and sorry for the confusion!
