As promised, I got down to business on my holidays. It was later than I had hoped, but word count is word count, right? After what I can only describe as an amazing trip to Canmore, I felt very refreshed. My wife and I ended up staying an extra night, and it was beautiful there. This was the view from our hotel balcony.
I can promise you that this picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s a small town, but man, it was beautiful up there. Surprisingly, it was warmer and there was less snow than here in Red Deer. Huh.
After we came home I had to spend a few days getting some things in order, but then I got down to work. I had two decent days, putting down 14,000 words in my new novel, which in case you missed my Facebook post, is tentatively titled Sacred Cities. This a Post-Apocalyptic Urban Fantasy, and I think you’re going to love it. At least I hope you do. No, I mean I know you will. Ah, yes, such is the flippity-floppity of a writer.
I’ve added two new events to my upcoming Events page. I’m going to be in my locals Chapters on March 29th to do a book signing. I’ll be there from 12pm-4pm, and if you’re anywhere in the local area, I’d love for you to come down and say “hello!” If that’s a bit of a trek, I’ll also be in Seattle, at the Red Lion hotel on 5th Avenue on June 14th. If you’re anywhere in the area then and you want to meet up, check out the website and get tickets. It’s a multi-author signing and there are going to be a ton of great people there. It’s something I definitely do not want you to miss if at all possible. And I think I’m going to spend a few days just checking out the area afterwards, because Seattle is a city I’ve always wanted to visit, so going there for the first time will be a blast.
I’ve had a Newsletter sign-up sheet in the top right corner of my blog for quite some time now, but I haven’t actually been using it. I was having some trouble with the provider and whatnot, all of which has now been ironed out. My first News Letter will be coming out at the end of February, so sign up if you’re interested in some special news and exclusive content. I’m not going to be posting many novel sneak peeks on the website, so if you want to see them all, be sure to sign up.
Speaking of sneak peaks. Laura at Little Read Riding Hood has the first chapter of my current work-in-progress, Sacred Cities going up on her blog on February 21st. This is the world’s first look at my new project, and I really hope you’ll check it out. She’s hosting an entire month dedicated to authors on her site, so if you’re looking for a new read, it’s something you should peruse when you have some time.
Other than that, I am BUSY and I have a deadline to meet. Which means I must bid you farewell for now. Happy Sunday, folks. I’m back at the day job tomorrow, so somebody needs to drink some extra coffee for me!
