A huge thank you to all the inquisitive elementary students I met today on the first day of my Nova Scotia tour of schools and libraries for TD Canadian Children’s Book Week 2014. Thanks for asking such great questions and for teaching me the correct pronunciation of “Shubenacadie.” (I’d better learn to say it right if I want to set a book there!)
As I end my first day of the tour, I need to thank the Nova Scotia bookstores stocking extra copies of my titles this week. Teachers and students who hear a taste of my latest middle-grade comedy at one of my presentations want to know where they can read more. So here’s the 411 on where to purchase a copy at a store near you.
While you can order any of my titles – or any title in the whole world – from any bookstore and wait for it to arrive, these three Nova Scotia stores are guaranteed to have lots of copies in stock of 28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6 and its predecessor, Hackmatack Award-winner 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6.
A big thanks to the store managers for stocking the titles in time with Book Week.

And I’ll be speaking to students at The Inside Story on Friday at 1:30, after a few days of presentations in Halifax, Hubbards, Yarmouth County, and Digby County. Anyone in the Greenwood area is welcome to attend Friday’s talk at the Inside Story.
I hope to meet some friendly Nova Scotians at these bookstores this week. And even after I’m gone, the books will be there for interested readers to discover.
