Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

When researching for my interview with Carol Balawyder I thought that since she has written books on the dating scene that I should check out the numbers in her home territory. I found this article online that suggests very strongly that Canada is a world leader in online dating and it is worth a read in its entirety.

To summarise…
Canadians spend more days a month and minutes a day on online dating sites than users in the U.S., U.K., France and Germany. Canada is also home to one of the world’s busiest dating sites.

  1. Fascinating interview, Carol! I really admire the way you’ve branched out into writing in several different genres. Each genre really calls for a different sort of writing, and it takes creativity and the willingness to ‘stretch out’ to succeed at doing that.

    • Margot, I really think I’m still trying to find my voice. I often feel scattered. I like crime novels but as I said I don’t like the violence or the gore. That’s why I particularly loved Wendy James’ The Lost Girls. There was so much depth to her novel. It’s thanks to you that I discovered her. 🙂

  2. Carol! Excellent interview with Sally. I also have a degree in Criminology and am Canadian too, so we have those things in common. I appreciated learning more about you in the interview!

    • How interesting…We do have a few important things in common.
      Christy, I have been trying to buy your book Pathways To Illumination for the past two weeks, using my PayPal account but I keep getting the message that my username is incorrect. I called PayPal about this and everything seems ok on their side and when I use PayPal otherwise, it works.
      Also, your book doesn’t appear on Kindle or the paperback on Amazon.ca. :C
      Hopefully, this can get fixed somehow because I really want to read your poetry. 🙂
