BY HEVEN WHIDDEN

Your Scrivener Press will host the launch of Bluffs: Northeastern Ontario Stories from the Edge this Sunday at the Jubilee Centre.

There will be a book signing and story readings by 10 northern authors.

"These are people who hold their own with writers across the country, and they are right from the area," publisher and editor Laurence Steven said.

The book is a collection of 19 stories. There is something for everyone: ghost stories, mysteries, comedies, magic and science fiction.

The launch will be emceed by CBC Radio's Dan Lessard  with music by Johnny Williams.

The publishing company was created so writers in the northeast could get their work in print.

According to the website ( www.yourscrivenerpress.com ), Your Scrivener Press has published 14 works.

In the first 10 years they focused on poetry. As of 2005 it added short fiction to the list.

In 2005, the publisher asked for submissions for a short story anthology.

Steven, who is an English professor at Laurentian University, received approximately 240 stories. Some were published in a previous book titled Outcrops.

Throughout May, Your Scrivener Press is launching Bluffs across the northeast.

Bluffs can be purchased for $22 and by the end of this week will be made available at Black Cat Too, Village International, Books and Beans, Chapters and Coles.

The book launch runs from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm at the Jubilee Centre on Applegrove St., behind the court house. Admission and refreshments are free.
