To send an e-mail, just to say "Hi" or to order your own personal copy of No-Badge Killick, please fill out the e-mail form on the right. Send me a message indicating how many copies of the book you would like and your mailing address. I will then e-mail you an invoice.
If you would let me know how you heard about the book, I would appreciate you telling me that as well.
Using a link on the e-mail invoice, customers are able to complete the transaction securely with a credit or debit card on-line. I use Square to process purchases which makes it simple and secure. Square handles the transaction so I never see your credit card number.
Alternatively you can use PayPal - my account is connected to my e-mail address at email@example.com or if you prefer to pay by cheque, let me know and I will e-mail my address, and then you can simply send me a cheque in the mail. You are not charged a fee — no matter how you pay.
I realize that the process is a touch more complicated than buying from Chapters or Amazon -- but not much. And, as an independent publisher, I am forced to handle my own distribution.
In any case I will send you a detailed e-mail with instructions as to how to exercise your options.
The cost of the book is $20.00 but I pay the cost of shipping.
Your order will be processed as soon as I receive payment.
It can also be ordered through the Publishers Group, SaskBooks and if you are in Saskatoon or Winnipeg you can pick up your copy at McNally Robinson or if you are visiting The Military Museums in Calgary, 4520 Crowchild Trail SW, you can pick up a copy in their gift shop.
It is also available at the Massey Library at the Royal Military College in Kingston, at the the Royal Canadian Military Institute's library in Toronto or at any library in Saskatchewan through the inter-library loan.

After my very successful book launch in Bushwakker's Arizona Room in July I was pleased to be one of local authors featured in a corner of my favorite pub. Regina's Bushwakker Brew Pub Writer's Corner.
It is a real honour be recognized and to share this space with a host of other Saskatchewan writers.
