The Launching

The Ottawa Bleeding Darkness book launch is tomorrow!! It promises to be a party with Green Floyd playing live music, finger food on order (come hungry), Perfect Books on hand with copies for purchase and lots of interesting people to chat to, not least of which is my buddy Katherine Hobbs who will MC. The weather is slated to be warm and sunny so we can spill onto the verandah ... lots of space to spread out. And I hear the road construction on Elgin in front of the pub is completed!

Here are the details once again:

So I had a busy Monday. In the morning, I was guest speaker at the Abbotsford House monthy topical talks meeting. The location is a limestone house in the Glebe across from Lansdown. The crowd was attentive and many came up to speak with me afterwards so a pleasant morning all around. In the afternoon, I drove to Orleans to an event organized by Nancy Reid and her sorority sisters. Five mystery authors attended and sat on a panel moderated by Nancy before we were treated to supper, cake and yellow roses. A lovely end to the day.

(l to r) Me, R.J. Harlick, Barbara Fradkin, Linda Widen, Mary Jane Maffini and Nancy Reid

And one last blog posting today: A link to a piece I wrote for the Dundurn blog entitled "Floating Ideas" in which I give a smidgin of insight into where I get ideas for a book.

Good week everyone.
