Book Signing Rescheduled

My signing tomorrow at Chapters Shawnessy has been changed to Saturday, April 22nd, due to the store not having copies of Ten Days in Summer.  So I’m in for a more relaxing Saturday this weekend. I’ll have to get out and enjoy our mild temperatures. Not as mild as this day in Spain, but still pleasant for Calgary in March. Happy spring.

Chapters Shawnessy Book Signing

This Saturday, March 25, 11:00 am–5 pm, I’ll be singing copies of my novels Deadly Fall and Ten Days In Summer at Chapters Shawnessy, 16061 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary. If you’re in the neighbourhood, stop by and say ‘hi.’


Another friend, Ruth Daly, has posted a photo-blog of my recent book launch for Ten Days in Summer. Ruth was my ‘official launch photographer.’ I’m lucky to have such friends.

Reading Recommendations

Today, Susan Toy features Ten Days in Summer in her blog Reading Recommendations. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a picture of me dressed goofily, for reasons I explain.

Book Launch

I am finally surfacing after my book launch on Tuesday evening. Ten Days in Summer got off to a roaring start. Many thanks to all of you who showed up or sent good wishes. I’m touched by your interest and support. Thank you, as well, to my long-time writer-friend, Shaun Hunter, for her great introduction and to Owl’s Nest Bookstore for hosting this wow event!

And one more thank-you to my writer-photographer-friend, Ruth Daly, for her photographs that make me look good.

“Would you mind if I take pictures of your launch and write a photo-blog?” Ruth asked.

“Uhhh,” I said. “That would be terrific.”

I’ll include more of Ruth’s photos in my next posts.

Thanks to another writer-friend, Pamela McDowell, for her delicious cupcakes.

It’s Here!

Hope to see you at today’s launch for my second novel, Ten Days in Summer at Owl’s Nest Bookstore.

Fountain Hills, Arizona - due to the high winds, the water couldn't lift off as high as usual - it's still wonderful to aim for the moon, rather than the stars.

Am I nervous?
