A Beautiful Day

Today's signing at the Chapters in Sudbury was a wonderful experience. The old saying "you can't go home again" gets thrown out the door every single time the Sudbury community welcomes me into its open arms.

Besides the joy of getting to see such wonderful booksellers as Rosemarie and Kim and the rest of the staff at the Chapters in Sudbury, I got a chance to chat with many great people. One of the true joys of doing book signings is the great conversations with readers -- the stretches of time sitting by yourself at a table for seemingly endless periods are certainly worth the fun and interesting people you can meet.


Among the highlights of today's signing, I had a chance to chat with Jana, whom I went to Levack District High School with; Scott Overton, the host of the 790 CIGM Today's Country morning program, and a fellow member of the Sudbury Writer's Guild stopped by to interview me for a spot on his morning program; Bob Vaillancourt, a reporter with The Sudbury Star, interviewed me for one of their spotlight 20 Questions interviews. (This, of course, after The Star's Laura Stradiotto did a wonderful little article about my signing and my forthcoming online thriller "I, Death" which I'll be officially launching in January.) And Laurence Steven from Your Scrivener Press and his wife Jan, two friends that I made during Word On The Street in Toronto a few weeks ago, swung by to say hello and of course, to offer their moral support.

In all, the day was a lot more successful than I could ever imagine. God, I love Sudbury, and I love Sudburians.

Dude, i'm glad your signing went so well. Now seriously, how much halloween and horror paraphernalia do you actually own? If you could list it out like this it would be great. Thanks.
