What’s New Wednesday…

My MG comedy, 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6

No, it’s not Wednesday, but since I’m two weeks late in posting this, what’s another day for the sake of alliteration?

Usually I skip What’s New Wednesdays because not much is new. This time I had lots to post but couldn’t, due to a computer explosion. (Literally. A gel coolant exploded within the guts of my computer, oozing over the circuit boards. Take heed and back up your work.)

My YA thriller, All Good Children

I will resume my Friday Fables tomorrow. And I might add a Monday Must-Read to promote the great children’s books I’ve been reading. For now, here’s what’s new with me:

My two new novels have been released!

All Good Children is already getting great reviews all over the place. (I’m saving those for next Wednesday.)

Daimon reading 26 Tips

 And my son assures me that 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6 is an awesome read. I had barely slit open my box of author copies before he was into it. He says it is the best book he has read all month. Aw, shucks.

I’ll be launching the books at my hometown library on October 30th (invitation to be posted on an upcoming Wednesday) and taking them on a blog tour in November (samesies – I won’t have to skip a What’s New Wednesday for ages!).

In the meantime, to kick off the SCBWI Canada East conference, I’ll be at Collected Works independent bookstore in Ottawa on October 14th, reading, chatting and signing books with other mostly-local authors and illustrators including Rachna Gilmore, Caroline Pignat, Ben Hodson, Alma Fullerton, Lizann Flatt, Marsha Skrypuch, Deborah Jackson, Kate Jaimet, and R.J. Anderson. If you’re in the area, come by and meet us.

That’s it for news today.
