The Book

Writing the Rollercoaster


The book lives!

On September 11, 2020 we held an in-person launch to celebrate the release of Writing the Rollercoaster. Because of the overwhelming interest by the authors, we held two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The sky was blue, the sun shone and the enhanced ventilation we ordered arrived on a good stiff breeze.

A fabulous time was had by all as you can tell by the smiles in the pics. Afterward, the book was made available free of charge at local libraries, Burlington Mall Guest Services and Different Drummer books.

The response and demand for the book has outstripped anything we imagined and so far 900 have made their way into the community. A Gofundme to print more was launched on November 1 with a goal to print 1000 more copies and get them out there in time for Christmas. Please click the link to share and support this endeavour if you can.

A PDF copy is available to download for anyone unable to get to a distribution point. Just click the link below and the download should begin, she said confidently. If you have difficulty, please let us know with an email to

Who is Bluefoot Press?  Bluefoot is a small Canadian publisher located in Burlington, Ontario.  

Is Bluefoot publishing Writing the Rollercoaster?   Yes, and is proud to be part of the project. Like the bird of the same name, Bluefoot prefers to keep a low profile, so all information about the book, including release updates, final pub-date, launch information and links to the e-book, will be found here on the Writing the Rollercoaster website.

How many books will be printed? Initially, 250 – 300 copies of the book will be printed. The authors of the stories that appear in the final collection will receive 2 copies each. The rest will be distributed to various locations throughout the city where they will be available free of charge.  We have launched a Gofundme to get more copies into more hands. Please share and donate if you are able.

Will there be an e-book? Yes. A PDF version of the book will be available for download on this website for one year. 

What about copyright? You absolutely retain the rights to your story. Bluefoot will ask for first rights only for the printed book, and one year for the electronic copy. 

Where will I be able to find a copy of the book?  There will be distribution sites all over the city. The details will be posted on the website closer to the release date of the book. 

Are the books free? Absolutely, with love from Writing the Rollercoaster, Bluefoot Press and the City of Burlington.
