We have downloaded some of your books and really enjoyed them. I have read Up the Strait. Such an enjoyable read to "go with you" on your excursions to the various places and islands. It makes you appreciate all the things you need to do before jumping in the boat an exploring - like knowing the tides, the currents and paying attention to the weather. I loved reading how you converted the old boat into your writing area. The bike riding chapters were fun to read. We love BC and have been able to enjoy the Nature and scenery of your lovely area through your books.
I would recommend others download and read these books. It is easy to do via Smashwords. I have some on my ibooks app on the ipad and a couple on the Kindle app for ipad.
Thanks for making this option available to us.
