It’s 2019 – A New Year with Intention

I’ve just added René Beauchemin’s books to Retired Eagle Books. His three novels add a different dimension to the available titles from Amazon and Draft2Digital platforms. I have two other authors, one for fiction and a second for poetry getting ready to submit their works to Retired Eagle Books for publishing.

Since I last wrote, a lot has happened in terms of publishing books. Here is the breakdown of titles:

  1. A Broken Boy, by Robert G. Longpré [that’s me] – Book 1 in an autobiographical series dealing with childhood sexual abuse and the road to recovery and healing.
  2. On the Broken Road, by Robert G. Longpré – Book 2 in an autobiographical series dealing with childhood sexual abuse and the road to recovery and healing.
  3. Journey of Healing, by Robert G. Longpré [in final proofing stages – to be released this spring – Book 3 in an autobiographical series dealing with childhood sexual abuse and the road to recovery and healing.
  4. Poetry by the Sea and On the Prairies, by Robert G. Longpré
  5. Poetry at Home and in Nature, by Robert G. Longpré
  6. Poetry: She, He, We, by Robert G. Longpré
  7. The Half-Naked Pilgrim, by René Beauchemin – a novel that is a mixture of reality, fantasy, psychology, and mythology. The protagonist is a pilgrim on the Camino.
  8. The Magical Other, by René Beauchemin – a novel that is a mixture of reality, fantasy, psychology, and mythology. The protagonist struggles with the feminine.
  9. Reinventing René, by René Beauchemin – a novel that is a mixture of reality, fantasy, psychology, and mythology. The protagonist finds that reality as he has always known it has hidden the true nature of just who he is.

I will be posting separate posts for each of these books over the next while. I will include links to where the books can be purchased as print books and as eBooks.

Published by Robert G. Longpré

I am a Canadian born in our nation's capital, Ottawa. I have recently retired from a career as a teacher and school principal in Saskatchewan. With retirement came the opportunity to return to writing, photography and publishing. I hold a B.Ed., B.A., and P.G.D. from the University of Saskatchewan. My first published work appeared in Ottawa in 1968, followed by a series of editorials in various newspapers in Saskatchewan in the early 1970s. My first book, "Sakitawak: Bicentennial History of Ile-a-la-Crosse," was published in 1977. It took almost twenty years before I returned to professional writing with a chapter in a book called "Educational Technology and Educational Reform in Saskatchewan" (1994). Three years later another chapter was published in "Wired Together: The Online Classroom in K-12" (1997). With retirement, writing has become a full-time occupation. As a writer, I wanted to finally get control of the publishing aspect of the profession which resulted in my establishing Retired Eagle Books. So far, three books have been published with more coming in the future.
