In an article written by Irene Seiberlin for the Leader-Post in Canada, Evan Ostryzniuk discusses the Middle Ages and his new novel Of Faith and Fidelity: Geoffrey Hotspur and the War for St. Peter's Throne.

As he continues to promote the release of his first novel with Knox Robinson, Of Faith and Fidelity: Geoffrey Hotspur and the War for St. Peter's Throne, Evan Ostryzniuk will make appearances on television and radio in Canada.

The official launch of the medieval historical novel Of Faith and Fidelity: Geoffrey Hotspur and the War for St. Peter’s Throne by Evan Ostryzniuk was held at the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan branch of the McNally Robinson bookshop on the evening of 29 June.
Recently launched, Knox Robinson Publishing is expected to release over seven titles this year. However, what should be an exhilarating experience for the newborn publishing house and its authors has been instead fraught with uncertainty.
