In 2010, LYNN DUNCAN founded Vivalogue Publishing with business partner Kilmeny Denny to help self-published authors achieve creative and financial success. As part of its commitment to the self-publishing community, Vivalogue founded and continues to administer The Whistler Independent Book Awards, sponsored by The Writers’ Union of Canada. Vivalogue also partnered with Heritage House Publishing to develop and launch their young adult imprint, Wandering Fox Books. This experience inspired Lynn and Kilmeny to establish their own trade-publishing company, Tidewater Press, in 2017.
