Spring 2016 update

On Saturday, April 30, I'll be at Otter Books, in Nelson BC, from 9:30 to 11:30 am in support of international Authors for Indies Day. I will dance for you, sing for you, advise which books to buy from Otter Books' lively selection. Plus just now I took a bath and tidied my beard, and though the event's two days away and their effect may wear off that's better than nothing.

May through July will bring straight-up writing, followed by Vernon BC's wildly-rumoured Spokes Festival over the third weekend in August. Life is solid & awesome.

Jaw-Dropping Recommendation #1: The Memento by Christy Ann Conlin of the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. I was fortunate enough to go to school with Christy Ann twenty years ago and I flat-out pity anyway who has not met her; cracking her stellar second novel will be a good start at including Ms. Conlin in your life.
