Marketing Brian K. Friesen’s At the Waterline

One of the major highlights of At the Waterline is the unique, compelling characters that shape the houseboat community. There’s Dory, the marina’s hot dog vendor and source of local gossip; there’s Barry, an ex-Catholic priest turned alcoholic; and of course there’s Jack, the unofficial harbormaster who’s lived his entire life on the river—his only constant companions being a little dog and an outdated, but fully functional, shotgun. These are characters you care about. They’re duplicitously loveable and frustratingly human, and they reflect our own lives with an intense clarity you can’t get enough of. We hope to market this story to Pacific Northwest readers who genuinely care about the quality of the literature they read.
