I was fortunate enough to visit Blue Heron Books in Uxbridge, Ontario this past Thursday, June 23rd for their annual event Babes Shop Brock. What a hoot that was! I signed copies with my amazing Viking guests and chatted with all the wonderful shoppers strolling along Brock St. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this quaint bookseller (voted number #1 Independent Bookseller in Canada) you’re missing out! Tell them Marissa sent you. 😀
Here’s some photos from the event.
And always, don’t forget to support your local independent booksellers!
Where else would The Viking Lady spend a long weekend? Great trip to the fantastic #Viking Exhibit at The Canadian Museum of History in #Ottawa!
I have a wild event planned for Uxbridge, Ontario on Saturday, March 5th!
I’ll be at Blue Heron Books from 2-4pm. And I’m bringing friends. 😀
Since I’m going to be signing copies of Avelynn, I wanted to showcase the rich historical detail outlined in the book. In order to do that, I needed Vikings.
So, I found some wonderful young men who were willing to hangout at the store on March 5th, shirtless, whilst handing out chocolate and posing with fans.
In anticipation of the event, I had a photo shoot to give everyone a little taste of what to look forward to. Here’s a little behind the scenes peek into what my Saturday night looked like.
Hope to see everyone at Blue Heron Books on March 5th!
So much fun, I cannot wait until the 5th!

I’m a little giddy today. Popped onto Amazon.ca and what did I see but a little orange ‘Best Seller’ sticker beside Avelynn’s listing. So of course, I had to click on it.
I am thrilled to announce that Avelynn is the #1 Viking Historical Romance in Canada!
I received the best early Christmas present EVER. Avelynn was featured in Canada’s The Globe and Mail, our national newspaper. Here’s a sneak peek:
“Ontario-dwelling Marissa Campbell’s debut, Avelynn, is a must-read for Diana Gabaldon fans – but also for anyone in the mood to escape into an enchanting, romantic world vividly portrayed…Campbell writes about Alrik and Avelynn’s star-crossed love affair in a gorgeous, breathless manner that should cement her status as a Canadian author to watch.”

I am ecstatic and so humbled.
