Cornwall Ontario — Author Lynne Pagé has published her second book, A Tale of the Tides. The story takes place in the same fantasy world as her first book, The Maiden
and the Unicorn.
Pagé’s book launch will take place on Sunday, October 18th at the Cornwall Public Library starting at 2pm.
The Library is a familiar place for Pagé who grew up in Cornwall. She worked at the Library as a page (not a pun) when she was in highschool.
In her youth Pagé wrote short stories and poetry, and won several poetry contests. After highschool Pagé worked on writing her first book.
Thanks to inspiration from National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), Pagé has completed and self-published two teen novels, set in a fantasy world of her own making. Pagé is now an avid supporter of the Young Writer’s Program and NaNoWriMo, and participates every year.
At the book launch Pagé will discuss how she came to write, her writing style, what inspires her, and NaNoWriMo. She will also read a short excerpt from A Tale of the Tides.
In the second novel the protagonist faces a life-changing adventure that leads her on a journey to learn more about the magic of the planet she inhabits. Throughout the journey she comes to terms with her past and is given the opportunity to change her future.
Self-publishing is another topic Pagé would be happy to discuss with any budding young writers who attend her launch.
“Self-publishing is a hard task to take on, but the results have been nothing but tremendous,” Pagé states.
There will be a door prize and small handouts for the first people to arrive on October 18th.
