Digital Originals: Audio Recordings


I realize that we live in a multimedia world these days and that many people like to "read" books by listening to them in audio formats. So I have recorded excerpts from chapters one and three of The Haweaters as well as a brief introduction to give you an idea what the book is about.

These recordings also help me to deal with the fact that I won't be able to do readings in person for this book the way I have for the previous ones. I can thank COVID-19 and the public health restrictions that brought with it for the unexpected alteration in my promotion activities.

For those of you who would like to listen to these excerpts, please click the image below.

Based on the real-life 1877 killings of William and Charles Bryan by their neighbours, The Haweaters brings to life some of Manitoulin’s earliest European settlers as they struggle against nature, poverty, and each other in a collective quest to leave their dubious pasts behind them and attain prosperity in this rugged wilderness community.
