I've been fine-tooth-combing galleys this week and it's fun to put my nit-picky nature to good use. It's also ridiculously thrilling to see Vs. looking like a real book.

I'll be reading from Vs. next Tuesday at Aqua. Please come! And yes, that IS right in the middle of Thin Air, on the night the rest of the world will be hearing David Bergen and Ken Finkleman. My event, however, is free. Thanks to Ariel, and her nudge-nudge, wink-wink Free Press connection, for getting my mug in the Tab today. My co-worker clipped it and now it's on the fridge at the office.

I guess I'll have to get used to the tough competition... apparently I booked my launch for the same night cult film legend John Waters is speaking in Winnipeg. Sigh. November 4th, McNally's IS the place to be.


  1. My 'connection' did me no good in this instance. I submit Aqua's events (and pics to go with) every week to the Tab editor...and this week they happened to like the pic I submitted. And who wouldn't!

  2. For a few minutes I was thinking you'd have no problem, seeing as John Waters was dead, and then I realized I was confusing him with John Hughes. But I would still see you over either of them. Good luck with the new book!
