How summer is going, part 2

Finally, a nice sunrise.

Here it is, the middle of August, and I can barely believe summer’s flying by so fast. I’ve finished edits on Haunting the Haunted (yay!) and I’ve seen the art for the cover (YAY!) so, that book is one step closer to being ready for human consumption.

I was at When Words Collide, the Calgary Festival for Readers and Writers, last weekend, and I had a marvellous time. Did a reading (the first of many, I hope) from Haunting the Haunted, and it was a hit! (The room was also EXTREMELY full, which was a bit disconcerting, to be honest. I’m used to a half full room, with people napping in the back. None of that this time!)

I have no idea what panel this was. However, it’s the only photo I took from the whole weekend, so it will have to do. Sigh.

It was great catching up with old friends and making new ones. I did a couple of panels, and they went well. And… Book 5, Hearing Voices, sold out!!!! That was a nice surprise, I have to tell you.

Next year is the tenth anniversary of When Words Collide, and I know they’re going to have a great party, so maybe you want to sign up early… Just saying. You won’t want to miss this!

Very soon I’ll start setting up launches and book signings for Book 6, Haunting the Haunted. I’ll update you when they’re set. And I’ll begin the horror that is online promotion at the same time. But first… I’m going on holidays!

That’s right! I’m off to Ottawa for 5 days. I’m going to a Cheese Festival (really), and checking out a bunch of museums (because I know how to have fun) and watching fireworks. (I guess that fireworks happen a lot there. And not just the political kind, either!) When I’m not doing all that, I’ll be eating good food and hanging out with my kid. So… yay!

Once I get back, the hard work starts. But not yet… Looks like I’m going to get a bit of summer, in spite of all the thunderstorms here.

Sigh

Oh! I almost forgot! I’m doing a promotion!!! (All right, so it’s not just me. There are 100 books and stories here, but still…)

Well, that’s it. I just have to find my suitcase, do my laundry, clean my house, and pack. Then I’m out! Hope the rest of your summer is great. I’ll talk to you in September.
