An audience and a microphone….what more could I want?
The Toronto launch of The Year She Left and Godblog at the Gladstone was a blast! Great people, great snacks and two fantastic (if I do say so myself) books.
Aside from getting over the inevitable nerves…like reading Shakespeare out loud in front of your grade nine class (minus all the "thousests" and "wherefores" and "whilsts"), the experience of getting to tell my story to friends, family… and maybe even a new fan or two?… was thrilling.
Can't wait to do it again in Ottawa! If you are in the Nation's Capital on December 6, do stop by the Collected Works bookstore!
Thanks to the Dark Star crew for throwing us such a swell party, and to all the people who came out.
