A Step Beyond

BWL Publishing Inc. | The Cornwall Adventures


Legend says that land once stretched from Lands End in Cornwall as far as the Isles of Scillies, thirty miles out in the Atlantic. To this mythical land Gort Treliving escapes when his Uncle Daniel beats him senseless. He steps away from his corporeal body and walks into the mist of oblivion, seeking only to escape the pain. To Gort’s surprise, he finds he is Sir Gawain, one of King Arthur’s knights. He is also the partner of a wonderful grey war stallion who can telepathically speak to him. While he is caught up in a wild chase across the countryside to rescue King Arthur’s kidnapped queen and her lady, Gort as Gawain, tries to puzzle out the strange visions of another life that assail him at the most inopportune times. There is intrigue, mystery, sword play and a dash of romance. A Step Beyond is a rollicking romp of an adventure that borrows inspiration from the Arthurian legends with a decidedly quirky cast of supporting characters.

The White Horse Talisman

Orca Book Publishers


In The White Horse Talisman, Chantel, Adam, Holly and Owen must help Equus, the great white horse, find his mate and foal and regain his magical talisman. But as the horse rises, so does the dragon. The age-old battle between good and evil threatens the bond between Chantel and Adam and endangers the quest. This is fantasy as its best, a story that raises hairs on the back of the neck and sends satisfying chills up and down the spine, a story that, while clearly drawn from the rich world of make believe, feels truer than true.

Beneath Raven Moon

Crow Cottage Publishing


There are as many Creation stories as there are First Nations on Turtle Island. The story of a Great Flood is known to indigenous people in every corner of the world. But what about the Moon? Who made her? What was her intended purpose?

Beneath Raven Moon is an enchanting tale of the creation of Grandmother Moon and of the first time she wove her spell on a young, unsuspecting couple.

The story unfolds in the territory of the Kwakwaka’wakw people – now also known as British Columbia’s Inside Passage – where Raven and Eagle join together in good-natured conspiracy to foster a heart-warming romance.

Follow the magical vision of Métis author David Bouchard and Kwakwaka’wakw artist Andy Everson to learn why Raven found it necessary to bless us with the heavenly sphere that guides we two-leggeds and illuminates our night sky.

---

Canada’s award-winning author David Bouchard is Métis. The author of over fifty bestselling books, his If You’re Not From the Prairie is on Maclean’s list of the top 20 children’s books in the history of Canada. David was a teacher and a principle for many years before turning to writing.

“I grew up in a white, Catholic society knowing nothing of my Métis roots. Recently a force has drawn me (pushed is perhaps more telling) to explore my own Native bloodlines. This journey, the ideas, the contacts and the passion are all inspired by my grandmother, my teacher, my Nokum!”

Bunny and Shark

BookThug


From award-winning author Alisha Piercy comes Bunny and Shark, a middle-aged coming-of-age story-cum-shark-adventure that reveals and celebrates women's power in the trenches. Plunging into the first thirteen days after the 'bastard' pushes his ex-Playboy wife 'Bunny' over a cliff in the Caribbean, Bunny and Shark is a fable about island survival, and the perils and potentials of being exiled from one's identity.

Literally lost at sea, Bunny is fueled by the miracle of having been saved from sharks by a band of dolphins. And her continued survival depends on her ability to become a spiritual extension of the landscape: she is the mood of the ocean at night as she swims blindly in it, and the protective coolness of the jungle by day as she recovers from a loss of limb; the close-walled refuge of the sailboats anchored in the harbour, and the sparkling deck of an opulent superyacht when, transformed, she makes a triumphant return to her former world.

Introducing one of the great heroines of contemporary fiction, Bunny and Shark takes readers on a voyage intense with abandon and illumination, in a story that invokes more than a little bit of magic in the telling.

---

Praise for Alisha Piercy

This violent, sensual, heartbreaking story of a worldly-powerful woman's experience of being cast out, carries us on the unlikely journey of what it is to become otherworldly-powerful... Teeming with original ideas and dreamy prose, Bunny and Shark is a visceral romp through what it might be like to attain the amphibious, to be alive at the very same time inside the everyday and the numinous.

– Caia Hagel, international art critic, author of Acts of Kindness and Excellence in Times Tables and co-author of the forthcoming +Girl Positive+

Praise for Alisha Piercy's previous work:

To hypnotic effect, Piercy achieves that rare feat of capturing the collective strangeness of the human experience. I will never see a crow, an ear, or an island the same way. I will carry this book in my breast pocket. I will read it again and again. Brilliant.

– Claudia Dey

I loved, loved this book.  It was one of the those books I didn't want to end.  One of my favourite authors is Debbie Macomber and this reminds me of her style of writing.  The characters remain with you forever.   Nancy is an excellent writer and definitely up there in my eyes.
