I Read Canadian Day video

February 17 is I Read Canadian Day, and to promote Canadian books and bookstores, a number of children’s authors across the country posted videos drawing attention to that fact and to a local bookstore–as well, of course, as their own books.

I’m signing at Chapters in Regina today

Come down to the Chapters by the Southland Mall in Regina today from 2 to 4 p.m.; I’ll be signing Terra Insegura (and Marseguro, too, probably). Also, I could use the company. It’s a very odd thing sitting at a table in a bookstore signing books. The looks you get range from the curious to …

Three Saskatchewan signings for Terra Insegura

I’ve confirmed three signing events for Terra Insegura so far, if you’d like to come out and get a signed copy and meet me in person. (Which might be interesting to some people, although I spend all day with me and sometimes I get pretty tired of myself.) The first signing will be at the …
