I'd say it's hard to believe we're nearing the end of January, but in truth I'm having trouble remembering that we're now in 2016.
In slightly less than three months, my debut novel Saints, Unexpected will be released into the wild, and I couldn't be more excited. It's early days, but I have a few events already booked for you to put into your calendar.
(And don't forget, Saints, Unexpected is available for pre-order from Invisible Publishing!)
Friday, January 29, 9:30-10:00am
I'll be signing Advance Reading Copies of Saints at the Ontario Library Association Super Conference at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (222 Bremner Blvd, Toronto, ON M5V 3L9. Booth: Ontario Book Publishers Organization, booth #535/537).
Sunday, April 3. 7:30pm
I'll be reading at LitLive, an advance event for GritLit, Hamilton's Literary Festival.
At HomeGrown Hamilton (27 King William St, Hamilton, ON L8R 1A1), a licensed venue with delicious beverages and fantastic, Hamilton-true ambiance.
Sunday, April 10, 2:00pm
As part of GritLit, Hamilton's Literary Festival, I'll be reading from Saints and participating in a panel of authors who write about Hamilton. GritLit is held at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, also licensed and also fabulous. GritLit is a great event--lots of excellent authors including Camilla Gibb • Anakana Schofield • Nino Ricci • Helen Humphreys • Terry Fallis • Russell Smith • Plum Johnson • Bernadette Rule • Rachael Preston • Gary Barwin.
