The Next Steps

Posted by on June 15, 2013

It’s been a really busy and exciting last few weeks. The book continues to build momentum and I had my first radio interview last week that further generated interest. CFRA – Monday, March 18, 2013… (On Target Ottawa’s feature book of the week is by an Ottawa author. Shelley McLean spoke with Ann Whitely-Gillen about her debut novel).

author-picI am happy to say that the book is now available on Kobo, Apple, Kindle and POD through Comments and reviews have been great and I want to thank you all for your enthusiasm and support. Some of you have asked if I plan to do an Q and A session on the book and I think this is a great idea. I’ve started to put together a list based on your feedback.My next step is to launch a cause related marketing campaign for the book which will run through April (Daffodil month across Canada) until June 2 (Cancer Survivor Day). You can purchase a signed copy of my book through my website at (click “contact the author” to send me your request and shipping info).

The books retail for $18 (plus shipping) and for every book sold, I will donate $2 towards cancer research. My goal is to raise $500. Together, we can fight cancer – so purchase your books today!

In the meantime, I’m doing a lot of research on script writing and have already drafted my first “treatment” for the screen play. I’m so excited to have Alex Williams on board with me. Alex is an aspiring, award winning Canadian film director who has taken on the task of helping me put this all together!….

I look forward to bringing the book’s characters to the big screen. Post your ideas on how you would like to see your favourite characters come to life. Any specific actors come to mind? What do you think are the main plot points? Should it be narrated? If so, by Martin or James?

Until next time! Cheers/Ann
