A Novel Idea

Today's Hamilton Spectator features a full page splash of related articles that I produced for books editor Rob Howard. (Okay, I stretched the truth a tiny bit - it's not entirely a full page -- the bottom couple of inches of the page contain the weekly bestseller list)

Page E6 of the A&E section features a review I wrote for the Terry Fallis novel The Best Laid Plans (or, more accurately a review of the podcast version of The Best Laid Plans) -- this is the self-published novel that McMaster Alumnus Terry Fallis won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour for earlier this year. It also features my article "Novel idea" that introduces readers to podcasts as well as the growing popularity of authors giving away the audio version of their novels entirely for free via podcasts as well as a sidebar on how to listen to a podcast novel that walks the reader through the four simple steps required.
