The new novel got a big boost when Radio West, B.C.'s premier drive-home show, interviewed me on the eve of the Paris climate change summit. Host Rebecca Zandbergen made it easy, and any personal "butterflies" quickly disappeared as we bantered like old friends.
Next up: the Nelson Star newspaper. And next month, the Nelson, B.C. book launch at the public library Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and I've been asked to do a reading or two, which might put a damper on the festivities but not for long: I'm well aware that 'authors' don't always translate into 'orators,' and I'll do my best to keep it short and to the point.
Thanks so much for the tremendous support and encouragement: the 'Little Book that Could' is gaining traction, and proving that self-publishing can work if it connects with readers and offers them value beyond the 'Penguin.' Gobblers rule!
We had an amazing 'official' book launch last weekend at Nuru Coffee Bar in New Denver, owned by none other than my amazing girlfriend Tamara. About 75 people indulged and many hung in until the 3 a.m. curfew, at which point we culled the herd with ruthless efficiency. A great party with so many friends, family, and new acquaintances - again, thank you so much.
A blog with revelers and photographic evidence will follow shortly ...
