To celebrate the impending change of seasons, I am highlighting two new novels, both coming out in October. Both are also set in northern parts of Canada, so they make a good pairing.
MY BOOK BEGINNINGS

This one comes out October 1 from Guernica Editions and is available for pre-order now.

Freda at Freda's Voice hosts another teaser event on Fridays. Participants share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book they are reading -- or from 56% of the way through the audiobook or ebook. Please visit Freda's Voice for details and to leave a link to your post.
