Welcome

Welcome to the site for Wood Islands Prints.

The Wood Islands part of the name is from the area (town?) where I live here on Prince Edward Island in eastern Canada. It is known best for the ferry terminal about two miles from home. The ferry goes across to Nova Scotia for about 7 months of the year and is a popular tourist attraction. In the winter the area loses all tourist attraction and drops to the relatively few permanent residents.

The Prints part of the name began about a decade ago when I first began marketing matted prints of photographs I had taken to local gift shops. The photography side of the business has settled to a small but steady business supplying postcards and photo-magnets of local scenes (produced through VistaPrint) to shops on the southeast corner of the island.

The writing and publishing side continues to grow. After taking control of a commercially-published textbook I had first written decades ago (C and the 8051), I went on to write and publish a book about impressions when first coming to the island from the Midwestern USA (Prince Edward Island Seen “From Away”). Currently I am well along in developing two more books of my own, one about sailing and one relating to study of Scripture. Hopes of marketing those coming books has led me into the web blog field, and my attention is currently focused there.

My producing and publishing of works by my friends here on the island and has led to some 10 books they have written. With that experience I stand ready to do the same for others.
