So I’ve decided to add a San Francisco leg to my California trip this year and I’m hoping to have one or two speaking engagements sorted out shortly. Meriah Hudson Nichols, a blogger in Berkeley (near SF) who is active in the Down syndrome community (her daughter has Ds), reprinted my Fake Work article from…
I made a decision over the holidays: no more promotion of my book (even though I hadn’t really even started yet!) I decided: I will speak to groups when invited, but for now I will lay low and stop shopping around my box of books and PowerPoint presentation.
A brief interruption in my 3-part series to show a couple of photos of another great event! Indigo Mount Sinai book-signing.
I’ll be on CBC Radio One’s Ontario Today with Rita Celli, this coming Thursday January 19, 12-1 pm. It’s a call-in show–if you’re so inclined please participate!
My launch party for the book was last night. Before I go on, let me say: it was a perfect night! Very well attended (between 80-100 people), the room beautifully appointed, and I am quite happy (thrilled, really!) with my reading
I know many of you are not in or around Toronto… but many of you are! I would love a chance to meet you and share the book with you. Wednesday Nov 16, 6-9 pm, Hart House, University of Toronto. Reading is at 7 pm.
A quick post to acknowledge the thoughtful review of No Ordinary Boy written by my partner Carsten on his blog, CarstenKnoch.com. You may not be surprised to see that his review is favourable, but it’s worth a read for its own sake – erudite and written with care.
The boxes arrived! I was kind of stunned; after all the writing and production work and so much anticipation (by me) I find myself at a bit of a loss.
I am so pleased to share that the book proof has arrived, and it looks great. I have ordered many boxes!
I have resisted posting more excerpts because… the book is finished! Mostly.
