Martha takes shape…
January 28, in Montréal, first meeting of the team working on Martha
Between these two dates, worked like crazy to lay the groundwork for a project that has never been done before:
-Foundation of Éditions Martha
-Creation of a database
-Creation of an Internet site
-Contract for sending the letters
-Purchase of stamps... because I wanted real stamps…beautiful ones! I couldn’t compromise on that!
September 9: Press conference and launch of the Martha subscriptions

Who is Martha?
In May, Swiss tour, on invitation by Payot bookstores
With a stop in Paris
With my indispensable assistant, my sister Louise
In Switzerland, Denise Gagnon read excerpts of my novels—right before I spoke.
Also, in July, my sister Lou celebrated her birthday. Party in the country with all the children.
A festival of chubby babies!
and August 29 – just before unveiling Martha – painful breakup
After 8 years…
by the seaside to write Martha
It was completely crazy to announce the project without having written it yet…
But by Christmas, the first year was down on paper.
