I know I've been burbling on about it endlessly of late, but my book will actually be out in the world (as opposed to mostly attached to a few emails) as of April 15.
Tracy Hamon - whose second book will be out with Coteau around the same time, except earlier - has kindly agreed to append me to her mostly-planned western tour.
And since I had such a grand time - and have since met such grand folk - the last time I toured to Alberta, I'm glad glad glad to be going back, especially in T's company.
We make one stop in Saskatchewan, as Dave Margoshes and Dee Hobsbawn-Smith's guest at the Wallace Stegner House. I think we're going to do an afternoon tea, which will be just my speed after a week's worth of driving.
Anyways, I hope to see some of you faceless readers of this shameless blog at an event or two, this spring...
