I’ve just completed the second novel that follows the adventures and moral dilemmas of Thomas Pichon and will shortly begin a complete review and revision before sending it off to the publisher for the next stage. Then it’ll be off to the publisher for the next stages. If all goes well, the next novel should be out in the late summer or fall of 2013.
Also appearing in 2013 will be two new history books. One is to mark the tercentenary of the founding of Louisbourg by the French in 1713. Entitled Louisbourg: Past, Present, Future it will offer an overview history, with a great many illustrations, of the place from about 5000 years ago, when its harbour was formed, up to today and on into the future to see what it may hold. Sneak preview: that future is not good and it has to do with the sea. That book will be released by Nimbus Publishing of Halifax, probably by June 2013. The other history book of mine to appear in 2013 I am co-writing with Jesse Francis. Its title pretty much tells you what it’s about: N’in na L’nu: The Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island. It will be published by the Acorn Press. It’s a companion publication to a travelling exhibit of the same name that Camus Productions has conceived and designed. It will open at the Confederation Centre in Charlottetown in 2013 then travel to other venues after that.
