To celebrate the release of THE SUN WILL COME OUT, I will be holding a fun webinar in partnership with fellow author, Jennifer A. Nielsen. There will be discussion, Q&A, and lots of giveaways! For details, registration, and to ask questions in advance, click here. The event will be recorded and posted at a later date. Hope to see you!
Hi. I will have lots of big news coming up but before that, I’m getting out in the world! I’ll be attending the Ontario Library Association’s SUPER CONFERENCE on Thursday, January 30.
Please stop by if you’re in the building!
I hope you can make it out to one of the DOUBLE TROUBLE launch parties this fall with Bev Katz Rosenbaum (WHO IS TANKSY?) and Angela Misri (PICKLES vs. THE ZOMBIES).
Burlington launch at A Different Drummer Bookstore – September 7, 2019 – 2pm
Toronto launch at Indigo Yonge & Eglinton – September 8, 2019 – 2pm
I’m also doing a reading/signing with Lisa Dalrymple at MyTy’s Books, Gifts and Toys, Clinton, Ontario – September 28, 2019 – 2pm
I know, I know, it’s been forever since I posted. I’ve been busy with some writing things (news to come!) and some personal things, like an upcoming move, and an otherwise busy summer, but I wanted to personally invite you to come see me and many other amazing authors at this year’s Telling Tales Festival on September 17, 2017!
This is one of my very favourite book events where tons of authors and book lovers come together for a day of stories and fun at one of Southern Ontario’s best-kept secrets – Westfield Heritage Village.
I hope to see you!
I am SUPER excited to announce that SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE has been named as a nominee in the Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice Awards for 2014. I’ve never been to Manitoba, but am thinking I should consider some westerly travel.
Next up is some day job news. In that I no longer have one. As often happens in the corporate world these days, big companies restructure and move people and offices around, so I was given an opportunity to, um, not work there anymore. This has been one of those blessings in disguise that people talk about, as it has given me the opportunity to bring together two of my favorite things–authors and organizing–and start a business. That’s right, I am the JL in JL Author Services, providing administrative support to busy authors. For more info, check out the website: JLauthorservices.com.
I have other stuff on the go, too. You know, the writing thing and all the fun stuff that goes along with that writing. Now that my days are freed up some, I’m excited to be able to do virtual Skype visits and in the Hamilton, Niagara, GTA areas in Ontario, I am looking to book in-person school visits to start in the fall. These are handled by Authors’ Booking Service, so please get in touch with them to book me or for more information.
And if you are in the Southern Ontario area, I’ll be at the Telling Tales Festival on September 15th with a bunch of other cool authors, so mark your calendars as I’d love to see you up in Rockton!
I have some other stuff in the works for this summer, but you’ll have to stay tuned as I don’t have all the details just yet.
Also, as of the time of writing this post, the SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE e-book is still on sale at all online retailers:
Thanks for making it to the end of this post. Since you did, I’d like to reward you with this dancing frog. You know, just because.
