Since I've been home, I've managed to get a bit done on my latest manuscript and will spend most of today and tomorrow writing. I'll be returning to Perfect Books on Elgin (and Somerset) for a lunch hour signing this Thursday, June 19 if anyone working downtown or looking for a signed copy of Cold Mourning wants to drop by. I should be there from about noon to one. The Glebe Report gave Cold Mourning a good comprehensive review, which you can find if you scroll down to the sixth review.
You might notice three mysteries by Scandinavian authors - I attended a reading at the Ottawa Public Library on Monday with three Scandinavian authors: (and they are from left to right) Jakob Melander, The House that Jack Built; Dan T. Sehlberg, Mona; and Thomas Enger, Pierced. Each looks to be an interesting read.
So today, back at the manuscript and I'll be writing up a synopsis and polishing up the first few chapters to submit to the publisher as well. My garden is also calling for some attention, Westfest, our neighbourhood three-day festival is on, and I have some stuff to get together for my daughter Lisa's wedding shower next week. No boredom here.
Enjoy your week, everyone. I hope the sun keeps shining where you are.
