Find out where you can meet lil’ ol’ me! I love to chat, so please, don’t be shy. If you’ve already bought my book and haven’t had it signed, bring it along! I’d be happy to sign it for you!
Alice Unbound: Beyond Wonderland Launch
April 29, 2018, The 3 Brewers (240 Sparks Street) from 2:00-4:30 p.m.
Come and listen to the Ottawa (and environs) contributors of the Alice Unbound: Beyond Wonderland anthology (Exile Editions). I’ll be reading an excerpt from my short story, A Night at the Rabbit Hole. Join me with authors Kate Heartfield, Geoff Gander, Fiona Plunkett, Elizabeth Hosang, and Alexandra Renwick. Buy books, answer trivia questions, and enjoy a lovely afternoon with us!
Renaissance Press Book Launch/5th Anniversary Party
May 27, 2018, The Red Lion (47 Clarence Street, Ottawa), from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
I am so excited about this! Come and celebrate Renaissance’s birthday with your favorite Renaissance authors (I’ll be there too…cough), new books, readings, and prizes to win! Entrance is free, and you’ll be able to buy books and get them signed by our authors!
Since we’ve always been very silly, geeky people, Renaissance invites you to attend cosplaying as your favourite literary character. This is entirely optional, but they will be giving out a prize to the best/cleverest costume! Don’t worry if you don’t feel like dressing up – as always, they’ll also be drawing excellent door prizes as well!
You must come and celebrate with us! I’m doing a group cosplay with two other authors and it’s gonna be awesome. Plus, listen to readings from Renaissance’s latest releases! And if you feel moved to buy Life in the ’Cosm, I’ll be there to sign it!
I will be selling books at the Renaissance table with my “cosplay spouse,” Nathan Fréchette, and we’re so stoked about our costumes for this event! Come on by the table and buy some great books by amazing Canadian authors! (Will post specific times of my appearances in April.)
Ottawa Geek Market
I always have a blast at Geek Market. The people are so much fun and it’s always fun to ask the patrons skill-testing geek questions! And I already know what I’ll be cosplaying as! Details as soon as I know them!
You bet I’ll be there! I just love this event. It’s early days yet, but I will let you know if I’ll be on any panels or doing any readings. But I will definitely be attending the conference all weekend.
