What a whirlwind month! With The Devil on Her Tongue being launched June 24th, I was talked into tweeting – against my wishes – and I’m still not convinced that I’m the right kind of person to be on Twitter. Hopefully I’ll improve both my skills and my attitude! On a more positive note (for me) I had a great time reading and answering questions onstage at Harbourfront with the talented Emma Healey and Tom Rachman. The International Festival of Authors does a blog post with participating authors; here’s mine.
I took part in Open Book Ontario, in the Fiction Craft category. Shaun Smith’s question this month was “How do you know if there is a novel in a story idea?” My answer looked like this. (Please scroll down to see my response)
Random House Canada has a fluid and entertaining site, called Retreat by Random House. They asked me to talk about and illustrate, through photos, how I was inspired to write The Devil on Her Tongue, then they posted it here.
And then there was the good time of signing copies of The Devil on Her Tongue at Indigo Bookstores, as well as Book City, around Toronto, escorted by the charming Rachel and Jennifer from Random House. I’ve always wanted to sign a book on a grand piano!!
