Back from an all-too brief holiday on Vancouver Island; above is a shot of Oyster Point near Campbell River. Coming back to snow and minus 20 from sunny and plus 10 in Victoria was a bit of a shock. On the bright side, at least winter seems to be starting mid-November this year instead of mid-October like it has the last couple of years. Oh, well.
So while we were away, a few things happened. I was featured in Your Face Here in last week’s issue of FFWD. Thanks to Drew Anderson for the interview!
Also, my interview with Chris dela Torre aired on CBC Radio’s Daybreak Alberta on Saturday morning. You can listen to it on CBC’s website here.
And finally, it was nice to see After You’ve Gone back on the Calgary Bestseller list this week, along with Barb Howard and Ken Rivard. I did not expect to see that again. Really nice surprise!
Next up is my trip to Edmonton. I read with the Glass Door Coffee House Series on Nov. 27th, along with the fabulous Regina poet, Tracy Hamon, and other readers and musicians. Then Alberta Branch Canadian Authors Association is hosting me for a presentation on the evening of the 28th and a one-day workshop on the 29th. Looking forward to seeing my friends and colleagues in Edmonton again!
Over and out for now.
