Reading West Podcast

I am very pleased to be part of the first episode of the Reading West Podcast. Many thanks to Lisa Guenther for using my recording of my story “Vermin”, which was published in Joyland and is now part of my new short story collection which is currently seeking a publisher. Also featured is Saskatoon author Todd Devonshire. You can listen to the podcast here or through iTunes.

Hope you enjoy!

‘Tis the season…

…to at least start your Christmas / Yule / Holiday shopping, right? And what better way to do it than by taking advantage of Thistledown Press’ Holiday Sale? This week they’re featuring select novels, including my latest, After You’ve Gone, at 30% off. But act now — the sale only goes through Dec. 4th, while supplies last.

Writers Helping Writers

Canadian Authors Association is Canada’s oldest writers organization. Since 1921 they’ve been helping writers connect with other writers, hone their craft, and publish books in many genres. I joined Alberta Branch Canadian Authors in 2004, after writing book reviews for Canadian Author (formerly Canadian Author & Bookman) for six years. I’ve made some wonderful friends through CAA, attended excellent workshops at CAA’s national conferences and have gone on to lead workshops for them myself.

After helping writers all these years, Canadian Authors is now seeking donations so that it can keep helping writers. Join us — and members, please donate now.
