This past weekend, I was at a reader conference in Ottawa (RTC2016) which was a lot of fun. At the same time, though, the news was filled with pictures of the fires in Fort MacMurray and the people who have lost everything. I’m glad that so many are safe, including their pets, but can’t imagine what it would be like to lose my home and everything in it.
I’d miss my books the most. Plus, when I’m facing uncertainty, what I want most is a book. So, to help all the book lovers who have lost their libraries to get reading again, I’m working with other authors to send books west. This morning, there’s a new Facebook page called Books4FtMac where I’ll post more information as it becomes available. Author Sasha White was at RTC, too, and lives in Alberta – she’s going to find us places in Alberta that will accept and distribute the books.
In the meantime, have a look through your shelves and please pack a box of new or gently used novels, any genre.
My super VA, the amazing Angie, has created a pre-order form for Bookapalooza, the booksigning that I’ll be attending in Whitby, Ontario on November 21.
There are some show specials, and if you order ahead of time, your books will be ready for you in one of my new totebags.
The form is right here.
Thanks to all of you who answered my survey. Since I sent it out on the newsletter list yesterday, there’ve been a lot of replies, and they’re still coming in. So, I’ll wait through today before ending the survey and having a look at the results.
You’ve surprised me in some ways, but not in others. Overall, I think it was a useful exercise.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll share the results with you. Thanks for sharing in the process!

For those of you hunting a print edition of Serpent’s Kiss, it’s available at some more outlets now.
Of course, it’s available at Createspace, right here.
This Amazon link will take you to the print book. They should link the digital and print editions soon.
If you’re in another Amazon market (UK or DE, for example), the quickest way to find the book on that site is to copy the url from Amazon.com, paste it into a new browser window or tab, then change .com to the right suffix.
So, here’s the Amazon US link:
Change the suffix to .co.uk and you find the book in the UK store:
And the DE store:
The book will also be available from the other European Amazon portals.
And finally, Barnes and Noble has both print and digital editions linked, right here. Note that B&N is selling the title from their website, but probably won’t stock it in individual stores.
Edited to add – Here’s the link at the Book Depository, so new that it doesn’t even display a cover yet.
