Greg Knowles Author- NORTH WITH DOC Series


by Greg Knowles

Greg Knowles’s 24 years as a humor columnist for IN-FISHERMAN magazine have built a loyal reader based across the country for his NORTH WITH DOC series.  Knowles has recently revisited his first 20 years of work, and created five e-books with 25 NORTH WITH DOC episodes in each. The short stories follow Doc, a banker, an attorney, a policeman, a plant manager and a writer who make annual fishing trips to the Northwest Ontario bush, visiting lakes accessible only by float plane.  Although much of the action takes place while the men beat the water to a froth to catch walleyes and pike, the stories are more about human foibles than fish.  The five volumes of NORTH WITH DOC are available for $3.99 each on Amazon and Smashwords.  For more information, email greg@btritms.com

Smith Publicity Announces New Fiction Services


As the way readers are discovering new books is constantly changing, we’ve revamped our book publicity options for fiction projects.

The core of the service is still media outreach to print, broadcast, online and book bloggers, plus uploading books to NetGalley, a community of more than 100,000 librarians, reviewers, bloggers, educators, but we have more emphasis on coaching clients with author-led initiatives.


We will talk with clients on how to take on these initiatives including:

  • library outreach,
  • social media tips with specific information for Goodreads and Shelfari,
  • setting up local book signings,
  • website design tips for authors,
  • fiction book awards, and
  • Amazon author tools.

We are also offering consultation services to give authors indepth advice before undertaking publicity efforts. Plus, we can help you with galleys/advance reader copy outreach. We are excited to offer this new range of services in a variety of price points. We welcome to you contact us!
