Hey all! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving if you celebrate such. I actually have a writerly announcement to make for once! I’ve been asked to participate in the Brockton Writers Series on Wednesday Nov. 11. Normally based out of Toronto’s Glad Day Book Shop, this one will obviously be online. I’ll get more information out as it approaches.
Hey folks! I hope everything’s swell for you as September flows on. Nothing much to report on the writing side of things. I’ve been working with an author of his debut novel; substantive edits are new for me but I’m enjoying this experience. In the meantime, I wait for beta readers to tell me if the new book works.
As for radio, we have a great one this week. K.D. Miller (a one-time Hamilton, for the local folk) published this collection of short stories, Late Breaking, earlier this year. Inspired by the paintings of Alex Colville, the book has gone on to be long-listed for the Giller. Check out our conversation below!
The lifespan of a novel is still a mysterious thing to me. The little bumps that come along when someone goes on the CBC and mentions your work (thanks, Terra Lightfoot), or when some fella says something on a Facebook page, or when you get shortlisted for awards. This weekend I’ll be doing my part to sell one or two by traveling to Windsor, ON for a reading at Biblioasis. A great chance to meet up with my publisher/editor Aimee at Palimpsest too. Details below the show link!
