Chilliwack author releases new book

Kevin Semeniuk’s book, Grace in October, is ‘a charming story about love and the power of forgiveness’

Chilliwack author Kevin Semeniuk has released a new book titled Grace in October and has made one of his other novels available for free in digital format.

Semeniuk was born and raised for most of his life in Edmonton, Alta., and found at a young age that some of his greatest moments on inspiration would be tucked into the vision of a screenplay or song.

He discovered his true love for storytelling and in 2011 published his first collection of poetry, while also working on his first novel, Sweeping with God, which shares a message of hope and love that he says is present in all of his writing.

He released his follow-up novel Sugar in 2015, followed this year by Grace in October, which Semeniuk describes as “a charming story about love and the power of forgiveness.”

Story synopsis: For everything that life had seemingly done to distance him from the truth of love, through grace and time, October met his match in fate and was destined to be shown otherwise. Surrounded by a small community of loving hearts, all of which who were no strangers to struggle and heartache, October and his mother, June, were reminded daily what the power of love was able to accomplish through open hands, acceptance and conversations lined with hope.

Grace in October is, for me, a story about the power of forgiveness, and how much the will of life opens up to us once we allow the breeze of love to brush our heart,” writes Semeniuk.

He called upon Canadian artist David “Pencil Fingerz” Graham to collaborate with him on the artwork for the book jacket.

This then led to a re-release of Sugar with a new jacket from another collaboration from the pair.

In addition to the recent release of Grace in October, Semeniuk has made his other book Sweeping with God available for free through various online sources.
