Word on the Street was a great success. I was introduced by Vicki Grant, whose new young adult novel, “Not For Family Viewing,” I’m reading right now with great pleasure.
First I read a few pages from “The Nine Lives of Travis Keating.” I hadn’t at that point received my copies of the sequel, so I read from what’s called the Advance Reading Copy – a plain-covered book that the publisher sends out to reviewers etc. It was fun to read from “The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy” for the first time. Then I signed copies of “Nine Lives” for Woozles, Halifax’s independent children’s bookstore.
