The day I have been waiting for all these years is finally here! (And no, it’s not my wedding, I really don’t need that kind of negativity in my life.) It’s my book launch, which is much more like a baby shower for a baby that took four years to give birth to.
This year, Limestone will be a one-day event on Saturday June 1, 2019, at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s main branch at 130 Johnson St. As always, there will be author readings, writing workshops, and panels, but make sure you stop by the vendor’s room to pick up a novel or two.
It was all a lot of fun, but perhaps the best part of the weekend was finally getting some anticipated dates for my book’s publication and launch.
As hard as it is to convince me to leave my apartment, I will be out in public at least twice in the next month for book-related events.
Now that winter is finally pushing up the daisies, it’s time to get back into the swing of science fiction and fantasy season!

Kingston, Ontario, is a charming city with a small-town feel, and Limestone Genre Expo 2017 reflected the host city’s character quite accurately.

Back in August, the DigiWriting Book Marketing Agency held #CanLitPit on Twitter so authors could tweet their books at them. On October 22-23, 2016, they will be hosting the Stratford Writers Festival in (where else) beautiful Stratford, Ontario.
Next weekend, I will be heading up to beautiful Ottawa for Cancon 2016. I haven’t been to Ottawa in YEARS and this will be my first time ever at CanCon , so I’m thoroughly stoked despite the eleven-hour round trip by bus.
