Biblioasis

Book Cover and Launch!

I’m really excited to reveal the super snazzy new cover (thanks Biblioasis!) of my short story collection, Peninsula Sinking, which is launching this September. Can’t wait to get my hands on this bad boy! I’ve just finished working over the proofs and should be getting advanced copies before too long. I’ll be launching the book in Hamilton, Toronto, London, and Windsor, alongside fellow Biblioasis authors Kevin Hardcastle, Alejandro Saravia, Cynthia Flood, and Pino Collucio–super excited to read all of their new books! Here are the dates and times for the book launches:

Tuesday, Sept 19 @ Bryan Prince Books in Hamilton (Doors 6:30 PM, Readings 7:00 PM)
Wednesday, Sept 20 @ The Garrison in Toronto (Doors 7:00 PM, Readings 7:30 PM)
Thursday, Sept 21 @ Attic Books in London (Doors 6:30 PM, Readings 7:00 PM)
Friday, Sept 22 @ Biblioasis in Windsor (Doors 7:00 PM, Readings 7:30 PM)

Book Deal: Peninsula Sinking

Unbearably happy to report that my short fiction collection, Peninsula Sinking, is now under contract with Biblioasis. I’ll be fine-tuning the stories over the next few months with editor extraordinaire John Metcalf, whose work as both an editor and a writer I deeply admire. The book will be in print some time next year, likely fall 2017 or spring 2018. Needless to say, I’m ecstatic that the book landed at Biblioasis, its ideal home. I’ve been eagerly reading recent Biblioasis short fiction collections by the likes of Trillium winner Kevin Hardcastle, Jack Hodgins winner Kris Bertin, and Giller-nominated Kathy Page, and I’m excited–if a little intimidated–to add my work to this catalogue. I’m also deeply grateful to all the friends, writers, agents, editors, and teachers that have helped me out along the way.
