Stores that carry our Books
Since 1999, rather than marketing our books on a national level and incurring massive expenses relating to distribution, we (Robert and Joyce) have sold our books very successfully on a 1-to-1 basis at summer markets, craft shows, Christmas shows and from our vans! Readers say they are both surprised and thrilled to meet us as most authors usually keep well out of the public eye. When you purchase direct from us, even via this website … all profits go to the authors.
Selling our own books enables us to continue in business, bringing our popular, family friendly novels to the public.
We are very grateful, however, to the bookstores on lower Vancouver Island which continue to carry some/all of our books. It can be a difficult decision for them when shelf space is valuable real estate for much newer books. Our books are most well-known on Vancouver Island due to our personal appearances, hence generally only bookstores on Vancouver Island have carried them over the years.
We rarely supply bookstores out of our area due to the complications caused by our long list of titles and the added expense of paying high commissions and shipping costs. We are always happy to supply bookstores for special orders if none of the below options work for you. Don’t forget, our books are also ALL available as ebooks.
Local customers are welcome to pick up a book order at our office in Gordon Head, Victoria BC by phoning us @ 250-477-0192. Our delivery fee is a lot less than a shipping cost!

They often have all our books (new copies) and some used.
OR order autographed copies shipped from the authors through this website.
We are a traditional publisher with printed books stored in a warehouse so we always have access to all of our books. When purchasing from this website please note that ALL proceeds from the sale of products on this website go to the ‘authors.’ This enables us to continue this wonderful task we have with bringing readers of all ages access to our apparently very popular family-friendly books. It also enables us to attend markets and craft shows where you, our public, enjoy meeting us and discovering our new books. The cost of doing business today includes websites and many other expenses, all of which we pay for ourselves.
We appreciate your patronage more than words can express. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the past 15+ years. We can only hope that with your assistance, we will be able to continue for many more years to come.
Robert and Joyce
