Hello Canada,

 

My novel, A Strange Kind of Comfort, was accepted by Dundurn Press in October 2018. As a first-time author, I was thrilled, yet I soon had doubts about what I’d gotten myself into. Did I really want my words and thoughts out in the world for everyone to ponder, analyze, and criticize? But I told myself I was finally fulfilling a life-long dream and I settled into the awesome journey, learning about publication with the incredible editors and staff at Dundurn.  

It was 1975. The Vietnam War had ended and the United States had been defeated. That part of the story most people know.

Less well-known is that in 1975, all along the Canadian U.S. border, U.F.O.s were everywhere. There were large number of sightings in Ontario, Manitoba, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota.

Dundurn is pleased to announce that Catherine Macdonald’s Put on the Armour of Light has won the Michael Van Rooy Award for Genre Fiction, part of the Manitoba Book Awards. The winner was announced at a reception at the Ambassador Ballroom, Radisson Hotel, at 7pm April 30th in Winnipeg.
