Hi! I’m Jockie Loomer-Kruger.
I’ve written my debut novel UNTIL THE DAY WE DIE which has just been released by Moose House Publications.
If you can hardly wait to hold it in your hands, even without knowing much about it, here’s the link for ordering:
Hi and Welcome!
It’s been a while since I’ve added anything new here. But, what I’m adding right now isn’t exactly new.
In 2016, at the age of 80, I self-published my first book,Valley Child – A Memoir. 32 stories of growing up in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley in the 1940s. With 32 full-colour folk art illustrations that I did to accompany the stories.
The original art from this book is on permanent display at the West Hants Historical Society Museum, in Windsor, N.S. where I will officially open the exhibit on Sept. 24, 2022. And at the same time officially launch my novel, Until the Day We Die.
The real news is that I just received some copies of Valley Child from the printer. These are for sale at $35.00 each, plus shipping. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. I accept a personal cheque or an e-transfer.
*At present, Valley Child is not available in book stores.
Interest in my memoir stories has surfaced because I’ve been invited to participate in the 32nd Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival in Lunenburg on July 31, 2022. It’s quite an honour. Here are a few of the new art pieces I’ll have for show and sale at the Festival.
