McNally Robinson Author of the Month
Canada's wonderful bookstore chain McNally Robinson has been a great supporter of my work over the years, and I've become friends with many of their booksellers (including Kent Pollard and Ian Goodwillie in Saskatoon, and Chadwick Ginther in Winnipeg).
In honour of the recent release of my 18th novel Wake, McNally Robinson has named me their "Author of the Month" for May 2009 -- woohoo! (That means endcap displays in the stores chain-wide, promotion in their print newsletter, and being featured on their website.)
Tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to drop by the new McNally Robinson store in Toronto to sign stock, and on Saturday, May 15, I'm signing at the chain's flagship store in Winnipeg at 2:00 p.m.
