Cheryl Kaye Tardif, author of Whale Song
(April 2007), The River
and Divine Intervention,
has been made the Canadian Author Liaison for Infinity Publishing, based in Pennsylvania, USA. Cheryl's role will be to increase awareness of self-publishing options and to promote Infinity Publishing, creating a stronger Canadian identity. She is already preparing to speak about Infinity in April 2007 at Authors' Row at the Edmonton Woman's Show
and at the Get Publishing Conference
, also in Edmonton.
In September 2007, at Infinity's Valley Forge Conference, Cheryl will also be presenting, alongside some soon-to-be-announced big names. Rumor has it, one of her idols may be there. More on that later! ;)
"I am very proud to be affiliated with Infinity Publishing," Cheryl states. "I've been checking them out the past few years and have been very impressed by their growth and their goals. They are a company I can promote, knowing that they offer a superior service at an affordable price."
When asked about self-publishing versus traditional, Cheryl has this to say: "Although I am traditionally published by Kunati Books
(which has been very supportive of my new endeavor) and I hope to capture the interest of some of the bigger traditional publishers, I believe that there is also a need for author-originated publishing companies like Infinity, and that it can be looked at as a stepping stone toward the higher goal of being 'picked up' by a publisher like Berkley, Random House, Bantam, HarperCollins, Penguin Canada etc. At Infinity, we want our authors to succeed in all their goals."
Authors in Canada or the US wishing to speak to Cheryl about publishing with Infinity, please email her at cherylktardif.shaw.ca
. She will be holding an Infinity Meet & Greet sometime in March at the Cappuccino Affair on 50th Street in Edmonton, AB.
