While it may not exactly be golf related (though I met Ron through a golf game), here is the announcement of my book deal with Ron Joyce for Harper Collins. It was announced today in Quill and Quire, a publishing trade paper in Canada.
HarperCollins rolls up rim and wins
Posted by derek at 2:08:52 PM EDT on Aug 10, 2005 Ã¯¿½ The favourite spot of Canadian coffee addicts will soon be making inroads in the literary market. Double Double: Ron Joyce and the Story of the Tim HortonÃ¯¿½s Empire will be published as a lead title in fall 2006 by HarperCollins Canada, which won Canadian rights in a reportedly fierce bidding war. The book, acquired by senior editor Jim Gifford, will be authored by TimÃ¯¿½s co-founder Joyce and National Post reporter Robert Thompson. It will document how the donut and coffee purveyor grew to be not only the largest restaurant chain in the country, but a national icon as well. The deal was arranged by agent Hilary McMahon of Westwood Creative Artists.
