Just finished my penultimate rehearsal for the reading I'm doing at noon this Wednesday in the New and Notable area of the main floor of the Central Library (616 Macleod Tr. SE), as part of the open house they're holding to celebrate Canadian Library Month. Got some bomber publicity for it in last Thursday's edition of Swerve Magazine (thanks, Swerve!) and I'm hoping a few folks will turn out. Must say it's going to be a little weird doing a reading right where I worked for quite a few years.
Nothing Sacred is currently number two on Pages on Kensington's bestseller list. Yeah! As a friend pointed out, I beat Margaret Atwood. Well.
This Friday from 6 - 9 PM I'm participating in The Alexandra Writers' Blue Pencil Cafe & Open Mic. Come on down, have an instructor look at your work, read for an appreciative audience, have a refreshment. I think it'll be a lot of fun.
The Canadian Authors Association residency is also keeping me busy. Getting to read a lot of interesting work. If you want to send me some, submission details can be found on the right side of this page.
Over and out for now.
