~ Publisher ECW Press gives us a behind-the-scenes scoop on the making of an ebook and its imprint "[...] what all of the Bespeak books have in common is that they are written, published, recorded, narrated, edited, and produced by a team of Canadians who want to see more Canadian books on the audio market."
Alison Acheson shares about writing to cope with her late husband's terminal #ALS in her memoir, Dance Me to the End from Brindle & Glass Publishing:
"My laptop became my therapist, and my champion. It kept me to task. Moments of joy and humour and times of despair and frustration went into it. Pages and pages, over six hundred. The time spent on those pages was time spent expressing the emotions I was experiencing. And like any other time of growth and extreme change, the range of emotion, the daily, even hourly, shifts into 540 degree turns never experienced before."
