speculation. In this Canadian tale of human suffering we are taken back in time
to a love story amidst the horrors of World War I.

thrilling plot-line.

DreamCatcher Publishing Inc.

Publisher: Elizabeth L. Margaris
December 4th, 2006

Mission Statement
DreamCatcher Publishing, Inc. is an independent book publisher located in downtown Saint John, New Brunswick that produces original high-quality Canadian fiction and non-fiction of general interest for adults and children. Our aim is to introduce the public to some of its best hidden talent, nurturing Canadian authors who deserve to be published in distinguished works of the highest literary and design standards. We wish to publish books that provoke and inform, as well as educate and entertain readers of all ages and walks of life.

About DreamCatcher Publishing
In 1991, Elizabeth Margaris set out to provide wider public exposure for Atlantic Maritime authors who were largely neglected in the major book buying markets. A bookseller for over fifteen years, Mrs. Margaris transformed her extensive experience and expertise into what became DreamCatcher Publishing, a company dedicated to realizing not only the dreams of aspiring writers, but also authors who were largely quoted and acclaimed but received little exposure because of geographical issues. DreamCatcher has produced some of the most successful books published in the Maritimes: Vernon Oickle\92s Dancing With the Dead; The World That Is by University of Toronto professor of Comparative Biology, Alan Weatherly; Yvonne Wilson\92s critically acclaimed novel Come To Say Goodbye; and the Canadian best-seller, Locked In, Locked Out, by Shawn Jennings, M.D., an autobiographical account of his battle to recover from brain-stem stroke.

By 2003, the company had published 50 titles, including poetry, children\92s literature, and became specialized in the burgeoning new "green" genre. That same year, it also broadened its mission to help aspiring writers by publishing a reference book on how to write and submit manuscripts to publishers: The Editor Makes House Calls by Allison Mitchaum and Yvonne Wilson, provides invaluable how-to tips for untapped talents, and has been one of the company\92s best sellers.

In 2004, DreamCatcher enjoyed a year of phenomenal success across Canada with the new titles Running Away by Peter Riddle, The Porcelain Doll by Janet Knudsen and three best sellers, Medicare Myths by Dr. Dennis Furlong, the novel Flu Shot by Kendrick Lacey. M.D., and a children\92s book, East to the Sea, by Heidi Jardine Stoddard. All three have been critically acclaimed in the major North American media markets: the movie rights for Flu Shot are currently under consideration.

In 2006, DreamCatcher, now partnered with the University of Toronto Press to secure distribution of the highest standards, saw one of its most exciting years with the publication of Mark Tushingham\92s controversial new novel, Hotter Than Hell, which received massive media attention and an important review in The New York Times; Sandy MacDonald\92s clever debut novel The White Iris, and Miron Rezun\92s long-anticipated second book in his Tatya Trilogy, the espionage thriller The Mossad Agenda, which has already drawn praise from award-winning author and journalist Phillip Knightley and notable spy novelist John Le Carre. All three have each received enthusiastic acclaim and promises to expand DreamCatcher into a wider international market.

The company has also become one of the primary sponsors for the annual Canterbury Tales Literary Festival, a multi-varied event that promotes literature and literacy in the hope of strengthening a rich literary community in Saint John and the surrounding areas.

Not only does DreamCatcher aim to aid the aspiring writer, but it has also led the drive to expand literacy within the community. DreamCatcher Publishing annually donates thousands of books to literacy advocate groups, school libraries and other non-profit organizations. It is our aim to not only foster community reading, but also encourage an appreciation for books, old and new, for the public, young and old.

From its inception in 1991, DreamCatcher Publishing has grown through many challenges into one of the Maritime\92s most established and recognized ventures in the publishing industry. Today, in its offices on the corner of Canterbury and Princess Streets in downtown Saint John, there hang dozens of literary awards and several plaques of recognition honoring the publisher, Elizabeth Margaris, who took her simple dream of helping local Maritime talent and created an outlet in which they can realize their own dreams. Just as it did while operating out of a one-room office in Market Square in 1991, DreamCatcher continues to discover and promote the best of Canadian writers in every genre.

Sound Advice From the Publisher

Elizabeth L. Margaris.

It is widely traditional in the publishing industry that there must be pleasant cooperation between an author and publisher. There is expected a positive atmosphere and a team effort to produce not only the best product possible, but also a respectable bottom line on sales and promotions.

I cannot quote a single best-selling author who has fought with his/her publisher or editor, defected and become an overnight success. The general public is turned off by any hint of trouble and other publishers avoid any author who has a reputation of being testy or difficult.

The publishing industry has a strict code of protocol. Authors have agents to do their requests. An author writes, an agent takes care of business, and a publisher publishes. These are distinct responsibilities. As a rule, the publisher meets the author only once, when the contract is signed. Thereafter, the agent is the liaison between publisher and author. The reason that publishers do not want to deal with authors directly is evident by the recent events in the history of our fledgling company.

The successful author must be cordial, gracious, accessible and on good terms with all members of the team. They must keep in mind that the publishing company wants to give them the best product worthy of their endeavor, and everyone involved in the project is committed to producing a successful, available and marketable work that will satisfy both artistic and business objectives. The general book-buying public is not interested in any problems that may have arisen during editing or publishing. They are only interested in meeting a genuine published author, an honor bestowed on very few writers; an honor to be taken seriously, which brings with it a certain responsibility to your public, and requires a certain demeanor of professionalism and respect.

In addition, it is best to be informed that books have a shelf life of approximately two years. After this general time period, they automatically become \93out of print,\94 enabling current titles to move to the forefront for their time of recognition.

I can only wish you success in selling your remainders. Even very famous authors have remainders.
