Jerry Cranford - Publisher

NL Snowmageddon 2020 by Nick Cranford

As a family-owned publishing house, sometimes we have the privilege of producing a book that means a lot to us on a personal level. So, it gives me great pleasure to show off my son’s very first published book! NL Snowmageddon 2020 by Nick Cranford was an incredibly fun project to put together in the days and weeks following that snowstorm and the accompanying state of emergency in St. John’s. But let me backtrack a bit.

On the first night of the storm that media dubbed “Snowmageddon,” Nick had the foresight to create a Facebook group whose purpose was to connect people during this weather event . . . people who might need help from others shovelling snow, delivering food or medications, administering medical aid, or simply talking to each other to help curb the loneliness that comes from isolation and being snowed in. The storm began on Friday night, and by Monday it had grown in membership to over 100,000 people! This made Nick something of a local celebrity. During the eight-day state of emergency that followed, he was interviewed (via phone) by media from all over.

Then, someone in his Facebook group suggested that he publish a book of the photos people were posting there. And that’s exactly what happened. In the days that followed, Nick and I reached out to contributors to obtain permission to use their photos in the book . . . and once again, in true Newfoundland fashion, members of the Facebook group showed a true sense of community, pride of place, and esprit de corps by helping us commemorate this event in book form. It’s a time I’ll never forget, and I’ll always be proud of my son for the service he provided for thousands of people who found themselves snowed in.

A Newfoundland Maple- Written by Samantha Baker and Illustrated by Dawn Baker.

Recently becoming a new Nana in 2020, I find myself reaching for books that are written for a younger audience. That’s why this book in particular pulls me in. I was so happy to hear that Flanker Press published this book and it arrived just around the time my grand child was born. The words are printed so clear to see and the pictures are bright and beautiful. With every page that you turn, the attention to detail just draws you right into the story of the book and makes you feel like you are one of the characters. This book is about a young boy enjoying his fishing trip adventure with his grandfather that leads to learning exciting things about a maple tree and how all the animals take shelter in it. This book is a definite must! My granddaughter Scarlett and I love it!!

Man and Dog: Through the Newfoundland Wilderness

by Justin Barbour

As someone who loves the outdoors, I was quite excited when this project landed at Flanker. I was already familiar with Justin’s videos of his travels on youtube, the preparation and planning that goes into his trips, the gear he takes, the challenges he faces, and best of all his travel companion Saku. This book really makes you feel like you’re right there with Justin and Saku as they travel from Robinson’s on the west coast of the island, to Cape Broyle on the east, facing rough terrain, cold weather, and isolation along the way, but ultimately being rewarded with an incredible experience and seeing parts of our province that are rarely touched by humans (or canines). Highly recommend this book, and also Justin’s YouTube channel The Newfoundland Explorer.

In Search of Adventure Virtual Book Launch

A Facebook live event!

Please join us for the Virtual Book launch of In Search of Adventure - 70 Years of the RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador on Saturday, August 1st at 2:00 pm Newfoundland Time.

On August 1, 2020, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will celebrate 70 years of policing in Newfoundland and Labrador with the launch of: In Search of Adventure – 70 Years of the RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador, written by Helen C. Escott and published by Flanker Press. Award winning author Helen C. Escott has captured the stories from the Veterans behind the police lines. This historical collection will be released on August 1, 2020 to mark the anniversary and will be available in soft cover and ebook at stores throughout the province and online.

These RCMP Veterans had a front row seat to history. From UFO encounters, to moments of sheer terror, to discovering innovative ways to connect with the communities they policed, to investigating the murders of two of their own. As well as personal stories from two constables who were in the middle of the Badger Riot on March 10, 1959 when 24-year old RNC Constable William Moss was fatally injured.

These Veterans built the foundation of the world renowned RCMP and Escott was proud to take on the project, “These police officers lived by The Principles of Law Enforcement. They worked toward our collective success with crime prevention, community trust and engagement, never being above the law, always believing - the police are the public and the public are the police.”

On March 22, 1949, nine RCMP officers arrived in Canada’s newest province and opened a Divisional Headquarters on Kenna's Hill in St. John's. On August 1, 1950, the RCMP was officially recognized with an agreement between RCMP Deputy Commissioner Gray and the Attorney General for the province, the Honourable L. R. Curtis.

Escott, a retired Civilian Member of the RCMP, interviewed each Veteran and documented their stories. Including three of the last living Newfoundland Rangers, the first female police officer to serve in this province and the first Mounties to arrive in 1949 to Canada’s newest province.

In Search of Adventure is Helen C. Escott’s first historical memoir. Her bestselling crime thriller, Operation Vanished, was awarded a Silver Medal – Best Regional Fiction at the 24th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards. Her first crime thriller, Operation Wormwood, was a top five finalist for the 2019 Arthur Ellis Awards, Best First Crime Novel, by the Crime Writers of Canada.

In Search of Adventure and Escott’s other novels are available at: Costco, Chapters, and Coles. Also, online at indigo.ca Apple – iTunes, Nook – (Barnes & Noble), Amazon, and Kobo. National and international orders can be placed by calling 1-866-739-4420 ext. #22 or you can send an e-mail to eoldford@flankerpress.com

The mission of Flanker Press is to provide a quality publishing service to the local and regional writing community and to actively promote its authors and their books in Canada and abroad.

Now located in Paradise, Flanker Press has grown from a part-time venture in 1994 to a business with eight full-time employees. In the fall of 2004, Flanker Press launched a new imprint, Pennywell Books. This imprint includes literary fiction, short stories, young adult fiction, and children’s books.
