TO BUY MY BOOKS

You can contact me at frances.boyle2@gmail.com. if you'd like copies of any of my books. I'd be glad to sign them for you, and might even cut you a deal!

Seeking Shade, my short story collection  and  This White Nest , my latest poetry collection, are both available in print through the big online retailers (Chapters-Indigo in Canada, Barnes & Noble in the U.S., Book Depository and Amazon everywhere). Or, better yet, you can order through your local independent bookstores. In Ottawa, Perfect Books, Books on Beechwood and Octopus Books have copies of one or both available.

 

Seeking Shade  in ebook format can be bought directly from the publisher, The Porcupine's Quill. 

 

Several other titles are available directly from the publishers:  Tower, my novella, from Fish Gotta Swim Editions.   Apples and Rose, my poetry chapbook,  from  above/ground press. My fiction micro-chapbook  Shards from its publisher, Coven Editions

My first poetry collection Light-carved Passages can now only be purchased by contacting me via email at frances.boyle2@gmail.com. I  also have a handful of remaining copies of my first chapbook of poems Portal Stones available for sale.

LET'S TALK

I am available for readings, and eligible for funding via programs of the League of Canadian Poets and/or The Writers' Union of Canada. I'd love to bring  my recent books  to readings series throughout Canada. I would be pleased to meet with book clubs.

I can also offer small-group workshops, with or without critiquing of participants' work. Past topics include "Ariadne's Web: finding your way into and out of the poem" , "The 'I of a Poem: thinking of voice and authenticity", "The Poet as Art Thief" (on ekphrastic writing) and "Poetry and Place".

Finally, I would delighted to hear from you if my writing has moved (or infuriated) you in any way, if you have questions, or just to talk about writing and community.
