Closing 2016

We’re closing in on the end of another year. What seems to have been a pivotal year for so many individuals and nations alike, on both a small and grand scale.

From the micro perspective, it’s been a good year for Five Rivers Publishing. We’ve retained the brilliance and expertise of a remarkable group of creative folk throughout the publishing process. We’ve published some simply stunning works this year, books and authors worthy of your time. Have a look at the slider on our home page to get an idea of what we’ve published, and what we’re publishing.

On the grander scale, the world seems to have held its breath this year, wondering where this new global political shift will take us. Many of us remember history. Many of us hope others do as well.

Considering hope, we’re offering a gift by way of a trilogy of Christmas short stories set during the Great Depression in Canada, Memories, Mother and a Christmas Addiction, through Kobo; from December 22 to 31, 2016, this wee garland is free.

Wishing all of you a joyous festive season, filled with laughter and the company of good people; peace, prosperity and good health in 2017.
