TWS Reading Series

If you find yourself in Vancouver on January 4th, I invite you to the first TWS Reading Series of 2018 to listen as writers Kathryn Lee, D.N. Simmers, Tara McGuire, Graham McGarva, Judy LeBlanc, Natasha Sanders-Kay, Sonja Larsen, and I share our work--all on the same stage (but not at the same time). A long time ago I hosted this reading series and I'm very much looking forward to participating again. The time? 8 p.m. The place? Cottage Bistro (4470 Main Street at East 29th). Hope to see you there.

2017 Reading List

This year I discovered Goodreads and took up their Reading Challenge. Looking at some of my past totals, I pledged to read fifty-two books this year, thinking a book a week sounded like a very reasonable goal. However, it turned out to be more of a challenge than I bargained for (and a little anxiety inducing) as I found myself getting bogged down in a few books, abandoning five more as not worth my time, and wondering how on Earth I was ever going to read everything I wanted to in the time I said I would. I even contemplated putting Rage on my list (I did read it over five times cover-to-cover this year as we were getting it ready for publication), but in the end decided not to as I thought it a little cheesy to be counting my own book. However, in the end (with a few sporadic days devoted almost entirely to reading), I did manage to complete the challenge and am happy to be finishing 2017 with fifty-three books read. Whew.
