2017 had a pretty rough start for me,but it finished extremely strong. When I look back on the year I feel pretty happy about the accomplishments I have made. I'm almost done my lib tech course, I began learning the ukulele, adopted a dog, took some road trips, wrote a new book, started submitting my work to publishers, and I met a really amazing woman.
When I took Grinfinn to the Fairhaven Steampunk Festival, I didn't realize there was more to the story than just a fun event across the border. The annual event is in memoriam to a young man who had attended the first event, but in 2012 died in an accident.
Did I ever tell you about the time I stayed in a haunted hotel and time travelled to Victorian era America? True story.
I'm pretty excited about attending this conference again this year! Not only does it mean a roadtrip to Kamloops, but I also get to meet some fantastic authors both of the professional and aspiring kind.
At noon today I'm doing a reading on a pop-up radio station called Leave Your Mark FM outside the Richmond Cultural Centre. In honour of the event, you can get the Kindle version of Rise of the One-Eyed King FREE. For more information on the pop up radio station, follow this link!
