When Words Collide–a Calgary staple for both writers and readers–is over for another year. Had a real blast. There were so many writers from all over the country that I got to catch up with, I barely attended any panels except for the ones I was on! It was all quite wonderful!
One of the surprising bits was catching up with all the Edmonton writers, who, because I’m housebound (well, mostly) most of the time, I don’t get out to see. Yes. We need to do coffee, while we’re in Edmonton. Really!
Drowning in Amber didn’t win the Aurora for Best Novel, drat anyhow, but A Daughter of No Nation did. Congratulations to A.M. Dellamonica, and to the rest of the winners! (Here’s the list.) And the banquet was a lot of fun–and the food! Excellent!
When I got back home, I was delighted to see that the cover for my newest book, Stalking the Dead, was done!
Seriously love it! My thanks to the artist, Guillem Mari, and to Lucia Starkey for putting the cover together. You guys rock!
And then I got really brave and had a new head shot done. Here it is! Ryan Parker of PK Photography–you made me look great! Thank you so much! (If you are in Edmonton, and need a head shot done, look him up. He is fantastic to work with–and that is big time praise, because I hate having my picture taken!)
Now, if I can just remember how to change my photo on this website, I’ll be golden! Ha!
