Moose House Tales Volume 1

November 24, 2019

We had a treasure trove of submissions of short fiction to our first anthology, and after a hard struggle selected 24 stories by 18 writers.

We are launching our anthology on Sunday, December 8, 1-4 pm, at the wine bar behind Bainton's Book Store on St. George St. in Annapolis Royal, NS. About half of the contributing writers will be there, so it will be a great opportunity to collect some authographs!

Publisher Launches New Book

June 1, 2019

Moose House Publisher Brenda Thompson is also a best-selling author (A Wholesome Horror-Poor Houses in Nova Scotia). Today she releases her latest book, Finding Fortune, the untold story of Annapolis Royal's Rose Fortune.

Rose Fortune started life as a slave in the American colonies that became the United States, came to Nova Scotia as a young woman, and had a remarkable career as a businesswoman, entrepreneur, community leader, and perhaps the first woman police officer in Canada.

The book launch is at the King's Theatre, Annapolis Royal, from 3 to 5 pm on June 1, 2019, and is hosted by the Historical Association of Annapolis Royal. Signed copies of the book will be available, and the author will read excerpts from Rose's adventures.
