On Saturday October 26th at 2:00 pm I was at Roxanne's Reflections Book & Card Shop reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife in Tesseracts Seventeen (Edge, 2013). I had a blast and I want to pass along my heartfelt thanks to Roxanne and Abby who set the whole thing up and to all of the patrons who braved the October snow to come and share the day with me.
Here's a video of the reading:
There was a question and answer period after the reading followed by book signings and snacks. It was a wonderful event.
Here's a little more info regarding a pair of upcoming readings:
Saturday, October 19th at 3:00 pm: Bakka Phoenix Books at 84 Harbord Street, Toronto. This is a triple book launch at a great book store that deals exclusively in speculative fiction. Tesseracts Seventeen authors will be joined by Urban Green Man and Chilling Tales 2 authors. If you are in Toronto, stop by for some readings and signings.
Saturday, October 26th at 2:00 pm:Roxanne's Reflections in beautiful downtown Fergus (152 St Andrew St. West). I'll be reading some selections from The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife, then signing and answering questions and chatting, too, I'm sure.
A ton of thanks go out to Roxanne. She and her staff are going all out to help promote the book.
The window by the front door is prime promotional real estate.
Inside the store, she's made sure I'm shoulder to shoulder with the biggest of the bestseller new releases:
I haven't yet received my author copy of the book but it seems Roxanne has the inside track with the distributor. So far both Evolve Two and Tesseracts Seventeen were available at Roxanne's before they were available elsewhere (including Amazon!). I picked up a copy of the book from Roxanne's and you know what...
I'm never going to get tired of seeing my words in print.
Please consider attending one of the two reading events. It will be a real pleasure to share some time with you.
In just about a week or so, this will be released:
featuring my new short story, The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife.
You could pre-order it from Amazon, but I'm a big fan of supporting your local bookstore (or my local bookstore, if you're so inclined).
I've signed on for a few things, on-line and in the real world.
There will be an author chat book launch thing on the internet over at Bitten By Books on October 23rd. I'll have more details as the date draws closer.
I'll also be at Bakka Phoenix Books in Toronto on October 19th for signings and readings with a number of other authors. If you're in Toronto, please plan on attending. I'll post more information regarding timing as details come to me.
A week later, at 2:00 pm on October 26th, please make your way to Roxanne's Reflections Book and Card Shop in downtown Fergus where I'll be signing, reading and answering questions. I'd love to see you there.
