This week has been a busy one, what with the St. John’s and Gander launches of my book, Never More There, and the interviews and publicity that go along with it. Both events went quite well.
In St. John’s I was introduced, very kindly I might add, by George Murray, who some of you might know through Bookninja – the awesomest site on the web for literary and book news. I had a chance to chat to some people I haven’t seen in a while and make a new friend or two. The weather was the only negative of the evening: the cold, wind and rain is not what you want to deal with when all you want is to go out and enjoy a reading and book launch, right?
In Gander, things went off without a hitch. A teacher colleague of mine, Brian Mosher, introduced me to the crowd and had some wonderful things to say. I was lucky enough to get permission to use the art gallery in the Arts and Culture Centre for the launch and I’m quite happy with how the location worked out. A number of great people came out to help me celebrate my book and it was a wonderful feeling to be able to read from my own work for them.
I mentioned some publicity. Below are a couple f articles or interviews you can check out that have helped promote these events. I believe The Telegram in St. John’s will have an article in the next couple of weeks as well.
