Montreal Book Launch and Signing Report: Success!

On Thursday, November 25, Wendy Helfenbaum and Marijke Vroomen-Durning presented the book Fits, Starts & Matters of the Heart. They were hosted by the lovely owners of Café 92, a local coffee shop in the western part of Montreal.

"Many people stopped by to meet us and to buy books and/or have them signed. We even had two writers who teach writing skills stop by with a couple of their students. That was a treat in itself.

We sold 29 books and we're sure the coffee shop owner sold a lot more coffee and hot chocolate than they usually do on a Thursday evening. It was a win-win situation - we had people come to see us and our hostess had people discover their little oasis.

We chose to do a "5 à 7" (cinq à sept), which is a traditional Montreal event. It's a time when people go to a bar or some other place on their way home from work. And that's exactly what many of our visitors did - some stopped in briefly, others stayed to chat and have supper."


  1. Congratulations on the launch of your book, and the book sales. Bravo!

  2. Congratulations on your success and thanks to both of you for promoting our book.
