Street photographer, Debra Schoenberger aka "girl with camera" captures the more unusual side of Montreal in her foot travels around the city. The images portrayed in the book are from 2010 to 2014
View more photos from her world travels on her profile page at Your Shot National Geographic.
Meet the photographer:
Debra Schoenberger (girl with camera)
"My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me.
Although I worked in the field of photography for over 20 years, it wasn't until very recently in 2010 that I bought myself a secondhand professional camera and started experimenting with street photography. I shot over 50,000 images that first year and gradually began to improve.
Photographers I admire are Vivian Maier, Robert Frank, Steve McCurry and Edward Steichen to name but a few amongst the many incredibly talented people over the last century.
Street photography is my true passion. Having a slightly off-kilter sense of humour helps keep me looking for the unusual."

Can Tiny Tiny Rhino have a fun day?
Or will all of his whining get in the way?
If you've ever been worried to try something new,
then Whiny Whiny Rhino is the book for you!
The story’s message is like the Mark Twain quote, “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” We all get apprehensive when encountering new experiences and this often leads us to avoid ever trying anything new. Just having a little courage to try new things can often lead to a much more exciting and enriching life.
Meet the Authors:
McBoop is the creative team of Carmin Iadonisi & Amanda Iadonisi-Word. This father-daughter duo co-wrote and illustrated Whiny Whiny Rhino. They currently live in New England where they enjoy making art, reading comics, playing board games, eating fancy chocolate and whining about the weather.

Male or Female?
Nine is the ninth female born in her batch of ten females and ten males. By design, her life in Freedom Province is without complications or consequences. However, such freedom comes with a price. The Prime Maker is determined to keep that price a secret from the new batches of citizens that are born, nurtured, and raised androgynously.
But Nine isn’t like every other batcher. She harbors indecision and worries about her upcoming Remake Day—her seventeenth birthday, the age when batchers fly to the Remake facility and have the freedom to choose who and what they’ll be.
When Nine discovers the truth about life outside of Freedom Province, including the secret plan of the Prime Maker, she is pulled between two worlds and two lives. Her decisions will test her courage, her heart, and her beliefs. Who can she trust? Who does she love? And most importantly, who will she decide to be?
Meet the author:
Ilima Todd was born and raised on the north shore of Oahu and currently resides in the Rocky Mountains. She never wanted to be a writer even though she loves books and reading. She earned a degree in physics instead. But the characters in her head refused to be ignored, and now she spends her time writing science fiction for teens. When she is not writing, Ilima loves to spend time with her husband and four children.

When it comes to the world of publicists, publishers and authors, we bloggers know a thing or two, right? Well, author Christina George knows a lot more, and she bares secrets of the publishing world in her fiction series The Publicist.
Join us for this contemporary romance book tour from
April 1 to May 9! If you're interested in this tour leave a comment or contact us.
These books have caused quite a stir as NY publicist turned author incognito spins a story around the world of publishing.
Book Title: The Publicist Book One and Two by Christina George, includes The Publicist (Book 1) and Shelf Life (Book 2)
Category: Adult fiction
Genre: Contemporary romance
Published: February 2014 (bundle edition)
Available in: Print and e-book (mobi for Kindle)
Will send books: internationally
Tour dates: April 1 to May 9, 2014
Content Rating: PG-13 Mature
The Publicist Book One
Behind every book, there’s always more to the story.
Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t always sell (at all) and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.
Enter the star Editor, MacDermott Ellis. Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author, now as forgotten as yesterday’s news; and his nephew Nick, who wants to sweep Kate away from New York for another coast, California.
As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, the over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn't on the bestseller list this week”, she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.
Shelf Life: The Publicist Book Two
The story only an insider could tell.
Publishing: An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk.
This is Kate’s world, but for how long?
When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, she thinks it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold onto but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. When her career and love affair hit their expiration date, Kate sets off on a new adventure….
Starting over in California is easy, but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn't. Nicholas Lavigne is eager to help her forget, but two things still own her heart, the dream of discovering the next great American novel, and MacDermott Ellis.
As Kate tries to rebuild her life she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest bestsellers publishing has seen in ages and she’s welcomed back with open arms. At the height of her success the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she’d been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart.
Meet the Author:
Christina George has worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn't. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, cause it’s more fun to guess, right? George continues to work in publicity and helps authors because at the end of the day she does love books, she loves publishing, and she loves authors. She hopes you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as she enjoyed creating it.

Invitation for tour hosts!
So exactly one week ago we launched our company and began inviting bloggers to join our tour host list. I was overwhelmed by the positive response and well-meaning comments by all of you! Our list is growing daily, and I have enjoyed connecting with you and meeting new bloggers. You guys rock!
I want to thank all the bloggers who have signed up to be our tour hosts. You can find them on our List of iRead Tour Hosts page.
If you're a blogger and would like to join our team, please feel free to sign up here. We are soon going to begin coordinating some upcoming tours for the spring and summer. Looking forward to working with you!
Welcome to iRead Book Tours!
After 5 years of book reviewing and chatting with the book blogging community, I've decided to start my own virtual book tour company, along with Author Marketing Experts, the recognized leaders in book marketing. Several times during my book reviewing journey I have come across wonderful books that I felt should be on tour. I wanted to help create a buzz about the book and let other book bloggers and readers world-wide know about this gem that I had just discovered.
When a reader loves a book or is caught up in its pages because it makes you think deeply, weep unashamedly, or lets you feel such a wide range of emotions that you MUST talk about it, then you want to share that with others. I honestly think that's what makes book bloggers such a special community. We are made up of people from all sorts of backgrounds and diverse situations in life that have a common goal: to read books and share our thoughts on them.
I'm excited about putting my knowledge of book tours and book blogging to use by taking on this venture. To all my book blogger friends, I hope you will join me in helping to spread the love of books by becoming an iRead Book Tour host. I thank you for all that you've taught me and I look forward to working with you!

Not only does Lauren do a fantastic job of organizing the tour and communicating with you at every step of the way, but I found the tour hosts that signed up for her tour to be of a higher caliber. The reviews that I got on this tour were thoughtful and well-written and I noticed an uptick in sales during this tour. I also appreciated the fact that many of her tour hosts that wrote reviews posted them on multiple sites, not just on their blog or Instagram account. This is invaluable to an author. I highly recommend Lauren and iReads Book Tours. - Allyson Rice, author of The Key to Circus-Mom Highway
Lauren Carr's iReads Book Tour is amazing! She gets real results. Not only did I get thousands of new eyes on my series, but I grew my following on all social media channels as well. Lauren has a dedicated group of reviewers and bloggers who are competent and reliable - no more wasted ARCs mailed out with no results.
- Michelle Cox, author of the Henrietta and Inspector Howard Novels
