New Eyes - Fall Release
Pilot Hill Press 2021

Thanks to our writers for an amazing decade. 


 

It's 1966 and Kevin Roberts is flying to the Village of Pouce Coupe a small town in Northern BC. He's got a teaching job - but what he doesn't realiize is that he's also there to learn - and it's what he learns is what makes this book arrive for us in 2021.

.Our authors get to time travel and we all get to join them.  

Pilot Hill Press is for writers & their powers. I prefer not to work as an ersatz filter.  They're the writers & that's why each of them is the hub of a publishing wheel, and the wheel turns about the real hub of the world .

We invite you to join us.  Our full release is planned for March of 2021 - copies are out there, but the actual leap into the air, clicking our heels together and celebrating new books of memoirs from our central writers takes place in March.

Coupled with antidotes of other, only slightly less incredible pets, sprinkled with insights into the writing life, DOG TAILS is sure to delight dog lovers and readers everywhere. 

We know what amazing places that Michael Kanaly takes us to visit. This one is about really listening to what your dog has to tell you. Crack the code, understand their story-telling, and you suddenly know how dogs understand the world, and what they have to say.about it.You'll never forget meeting this critter.

Both Michael Kanaly, who lives in New York State, and Kevin Roberts, who comes to Canada via Australia, reflect an international approach which will expand even more.  

This press keeps transmuting with the times. Continue to look for releases year-round and not just in publishing 'seasons'.  However, Caren and I have always viewed this press as a consortium of thoughts. And as we both move deeper into the world of film, the Press is now evolving its own direction. Behind each of these books is a simple principle. We'd choose the writers, but the writers would choose which book they wanted to write. Each book needed the author's passion.In this age we all combine forces -  a group of people want to get great books to great readers.

Our readers love the heft of a book; the way it fits in a pocket or a backpack. We all imagine the look of books on window ledges of small cabins; in high rise buildings, on buses, on subways. And we love the pixels yarning & weaving stories on a lit screen. May these books be carried around the world like lanterns - each holding a necessary spark.
