We had the launch party tonight for Nick DiChario‘s first novel, A Small and Remarkable Life, the latest (and fifth) title under my Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint. Damn, but the book looks gorgeous — and we had cover flats for the new trade-paperback editions of Marcos Donnelly’s Letters from the Flesh and Andrew Weiner’s Getting Near the End, and they look gorgeous, too. Our designer/art director, Karen Petherick, is absolutely terrific.

Of course, I didn’t need the drama in my life of Nick’s books arriving — if you’ll excuse the pun — just in the nick of time; they should have been back from the printer a couple of weeks ago, instead of showing up literally just in time. But, in the end, the launch party, which was held at Toronto’s Ad Astra science-fiction convention, came off fabulously. This marks the second anniversary of RJS Books, and the third consecutive Ad Astra at which we’ve held a launch party.
