Saint-la­zare au­thor hosts book si­gning Sa­tur­day

Bla­zing new path for au­thor

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Saint-la­zare au­thor Mer­wie Gar­zon will be mee­ting and spea­king with rea­ders at the Saint-la­zare li­bra­ry Sa­tur­day when she hosts a book si­gning for her de­but no­vel, Blaze of Glo­ry, (Vir­tual­book­ Pu­bli­shing Inc., 2011).

Gar­zon’s book ge­ne­ra­ted buzz in the world of te­le­vi­sion and film when it caught the at­ten­tion of not one but two film pro­du­cers. One has since se­cu­red the film and TV rights to the book and spe­cu­lates a TV se­ries could even be fil­med in Saint-la­zare. Meanw­hile, a recent on­line re­view in USA To­day re­com­mends Blaze of Glo­ry. The pu­bli­ca­tion said Gar­zon 'ma­nages to create a tas­te­ful and sen­sual in­ti­ma­cy bet­ween the two cha­rac­ters wi­thout re­sor­ting to gra­phic des­crip­tion, kee­ping the sto­ry age ap­pro­priate.'

Gar­zon, a single mo­ther whose day job in­cludes con­sul­ting work, wrote the book th­ree years ago while her chil­dren nap­ped, at night and in her head while dri­ving in the car.

Blaze of Glo­ry tells the sto­ry of 17-year-old Tea, who runs an eques­trian centre in sou­thern On­ta­rio with her twin bro­ther and step-fa­ther. Tea’s mo­ther died th­ree years ear­lier. Tea soon finds her­self figh­ting blos­so­ming fee­lings for a young man who is a cou­sin by mar­riage since both know the re­la­tion­ship would not be ac­cep­ted in their fa­mi­ly.

Gar­zon will host a book si­gning for Blaze of Glo­ry from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Feb. 18 at the Saint-la­zare Li­bra­ry, lo­ca­ted at 1275, rue du Bois. Co­pies of the book will be avai­lable for pur­chase ($15) du­ring the si­gning, while it can al­so be pur­cha­sed at Cra­zy Ca­rou­sel Tack Shop and San­dridge Sadd­le­ry in Hud­son, as well as on-line through most ma­jor re­tai­lers in­clu­ding Chap­ters and Ama­zon.
