A new thread was begun this morning on the travel information site, Tripadvisor, about my novel, Island in the Clouds (set on Bequia) discussing its availability as an eBook.
The print edition is being prepared now and should be available in Canada and Bequia in May/June. You may pre-order by sending an email to susanmtoy (at) gmail.com. (ISBN – 978-0-9879385-2-7 Retail price CDN$18.95)
I had been looking for some kind of book about Bequia and after asking for suggestions at the book store, the tourist office, as well as some of the friendly vendors we have gotten to recognize, I found nothing. It was meant to be that I asked at Tommy’s about your book just as you were sitting there. It is exactly what I was looking for.

I was spellbound by the development of the plot and the quirky twists that were sprinkled throughout. Sometimes I found I was even holding my breath! I also was laughing to myself about many of the cultural differences that were so cleverly pointed out between foreigners and Bequians – well, I would say all West Indians for the most part. As an expat living in Dominica for almost 15 years, I could really identify with so many of Geoff’s remarks about life on Bequia.
