I’ve decided to attend the Pajama Press launch in Toronto – for all their titles (ten altogether) published in the spring and fall seasons of 2013. So I’ll be there on November 7th with Nix Minus One.
My flights are booked on Porter Air – I love flying into Toronto Islands airport and taking the ferry to the Harbourfront area.
And I can stay with my friend Sue MacLeod, who will also be at the launch with her wonderful present day/historical teen novel, Namesake.
The six-month “sabbatical” I’ve been trying to take from the world of kidlit? With two new titles published this year – Nix Minus One and The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden – I’m out of luck!
Obviously, I really care about both books, and want to do everything I can to introduce them to potential readers. So…I’d better go prepare my presentation for the Pleasant View Branch of the Toronto Public Library on November 6th….
