Announcing Two Books by S.B. Borgersen

 Unsolicited Press is a publisher that does not mess around. Once the proposal is accepted—contracts are agreed and the editorial schedule is established. And this is what happened to me in the summer of 2019.

As a result of working closely with Managing Editor, Summer Stewart, two of my books are now available on pre-order from an Amazon near you, and from Unsolicited Press (be still my beating heart): 

Fishermen's Fingers direct from the publisherOr from Amazon


Kicked from one orphanage to another, Lenny’s had a raw deal from his first breath…until the rebel in him finds a way through. 

"Fishermen’s Fingers" peeks into the underbelly of a remote coastal community, revealing how poverty, an unwanted pregnancy, and a bad start in life can lead to a precarious adulthood for those who are different, like Lenny.

There are no real worries in small communities where houses are not locked and children are sent alone to the store for a loaf of bread, but when 10-year-old Betty isn’t in her usual seat at school, her teacher, Miss Watson, has to explain to students the perils of talking to strangers.

Like most aftermaths, this becomes a story of ‘if-onlys,’ where naivety and trust blind those who should have seen, should have known.

But where strong bonds of friendship, love and caring are never far away.

Also announced for pre-order this week is my collection of micro fictions, 150 in all. The print issue will come with a bonus. There is also talk of an audio book, but keep that under your hat for now...



This is what my publisher says: WHILE THE KETTLE BOILS is a spunky and economical micro-fiction collection with 150 baubles to savor. Readers will be thrilled to find a very special surprise at the end of the printed collection. Preorder today for release on March 9th 2021.

As many of you know, this is a collection written over three years. Micro fiction is a favourite genre of mine and forces me to edit out anything extraneous. They are quick reads, but often they make you wonder and want to read again. This is what early readers have said:


Again, you can pre-order from the publisher Unsolicited Press or from an amazon near you Amazon.ca books by S.B. Borgersen


My third book for 2021 will be released in December. It is a 20 year collection of Poetry, Of Daisies and Dead Violins. Please let me know if you'd like to be on the mailing list for advanced information. Thank you.
