There’s a nice big interview with me up at SciFiGuy.ca, mostly focused on the upcoming release of Song of the Sword, Book 1 in The Shards of Excalibur. Alas, it’s still the upcoming release because printer problems delayed it past the hoped for October 15, but they promise me it’ll be ready at month’s end–which is good, since I’ve got a signing coming up at Chapters here in Regina on November 6. (2 p.m. Be there! Well, unless you’re reading this in, say, Miami. In which case, I won’t look for you.)
I had a school reading last Friday at W.S. Hawrylak School, for about a hundred Grade 7s and 8s, and it seemed to go really well. I even got a few laughs as I read the first chapter, which was gratifying.
(And, yes, I did sing to wrap up the reading. “Me,” from the stage version of Beauty and the Beast. Don’t all authors?)
Monday, I polished up Twist of the Blade, Book 2 of The Shards of Excalibur, and sent it off to my editor at Lobster Press. Lots of rewriting to come on it, I’m sure, but I’m pretty happy with it, and with the title…because there most definitely are some twists in this one.
I’m expecting more reviews of Song of the Sword shortly: keep watching this space!
