Conquistador Puzzle Trail Video Blog & Book Launch

Conquistador Puzzle Trail Video Blog

Winston Cowie’s first ever Video Blog.

Check out Winston Cowie’s book update via You Tube on a couple of cracking books you should read. No doubt I’ll get a bit of stick for this one.

And, a reminder, Conquistador Puzzle Trail is being launched this week on Saturday 11 July at The Kumara Box in Dargaville, Northland, New Zealand.

Drop in between 1:30-5pm, grab a book, get it signed, and for those that RSVP and grab a book, a presentation and showing of David Sims and Winston Cowie’s documentary ‘Mystery at Midge Bay’ will screen between 5-6pm.

Come along to what should be a lovely community event – lots of those involved on the Conquistador Puzzle Trail will be present.

And for those that can’t make it, Conquistador Puzzle Trail is available throughout New Zealand at the following great book stores. Many thanks to Susan Holmes and the team at Bookreps NZ Ltd for doing such a fantastic job with distribution!
