New blog post: newspaper coverage for Cataline book

I really appreciated being interviewed the Quesnel Cariboo Observer Lindsay Chung earlier this year. Lindsay is away from her editor’s post for a while.

A quote from the 22 July 2020 issue of the Quesnel Cariboo Observer issue says, “At the start of the pandemic, Cariboo Observer editor Lindsay Chung — also a Canadian Ranger — was summoned for active duty. Chung answered that call for assistance from the Canadian Rangers but is expected to be back at her editor’s chair in September.” I knew Lindsay was an impressive young woman, she was a great interviewer.

I was also really honoured to have my book reviewed in the Vancouver Sun, and apparently, the review got syndicated to a lot of other newspapers as well. Tom Sandborn, the author of the review, said: “Cataline would be an ideal protagonist for an adventure movie. His long hair and beard, the Mexican throwing knife tucked into his boot, his broken English, and his extraordinary skill at training and using pack animals over rugged terrain all made him a colourful and memorable figure.”

To read the whole review, click here. I’d only read the review online so I was very pleased when someone (OK, it was my mom) gave me an actual physical newspaper with the review. Here I am (below), proudly holding up a copy of the review. For an author, a review means so much! So if you want to help out any author, leave a review on your own blog, or on Amazon or on Goodreads. It costs nothing and means the world to people who write books. I have to say that the review on my Amazon page is unusual, but appreciated nevertheless!

Book review: Packer Cataline a strong and reliable B.C. pioneer. Reviewed in The Vancouver Sun, July 3, 2020. Review by Tom Sandborn.
