First: a bit of self-promo. An excerpt from my new novel is online! Horrifying and true. Check it out here.
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.
Quite note, soon to be obsolete: if you’re interested in attending an online book launch for Brent Van Staalduinen’s BOY, it’s tonight, Oct 1, at 7 pm. Just visit www.brentvanstaalduinen.com for info! Hosted by me. 😀
I’m not entirely sure how this happened, but we are on episode 200!
It’s fitting that we have something a little different this week. It’s not a novel or a non-fiction book or a chapbook or a poetry collection. It’s Forever Terry: A Legacy in Letters, a collection of letters celebrating the life, dedication and heroism of Terry Fox, on the 40th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope. I was privileged to speak with his brother, Darrell Fox, who acted as editor on this unique book. All proceeds from the book go to support the Terry Fox Foundation. This year’s Terry Fox Run is, like most things these days, virtual. If you’re listening on or before the 20th of September, 2020, you can go here to support or find out more.
Welcome to the autumn, folks! Hope it hasn’t been too bad where you are (the week has been grey here, which…isn’t…helpful?)
Today’s guest is author Mark Sampson. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Mark (however slightly) and it was fun to talk to him again on Get Lit. His novel, All The Animals On Earth, is available now from the good folks at Wolsak & Wynn. Enjoy!
Today’s guest is Jeff Rubin, former economist and best-selling author. We talk about his latest, The Expendables: How The Middle Class Got Screwed By Globalization. Enjoy!
Hey folks! This week we talk with UK author Maggie O’Farrell. Her latest novel is Hamnet & Judith, and it’s a fictionalization of events in the life of William Shakespeare. Even those who don’t think they’d be interested should check it out, it’s likely different than you think! Cheers everyone, be well – jt
I have finally found the head and heart space to go back and work on the book! With some encouragement I’m back at the work I’ve tentatively called River, Diverted (which I like but isn’t super descriptive) and, fingers crossed, it’s going to go from something I like to something all y’all will enjoy too !
This week’s show features author Aislinn Hunter. Great conversation – one of those sessions where after the mics were off, we just kept talking. Aislinn’s superb novel The Certainties is available now. Enjoy!
