Devil Take the Hindmost @ WWC 2016



Thank you to Heather Little of little h design works for another gorgeous cover. This one required some extra work and Heather was more than up to the task. I’m so grateful for her support and enthusiasm.

I’ve been having some issues setting up pre-orders, but I’m working hard to have it sorted by the time I get to When Words Collide 2016. (More on WWC below.)

Ok, so some happy news to share, for those who missed it: In For A Pound was nominated for a Whistler Independent Book Award last month. It did not get a shortlist nod, but the cliché is absolutely true: it’s an honour to be nominated!

When Words Collide 2016 is this weekend! I’ll be on 7 panels, reading at Noir Bar YYC on Friday night, and at the Mass Autograph session on Saturday night. Here’s my schedule:

Fri. Aug. 12

4pm: Alternating History with Story (Part 1) || w/ Marty Chan, Susan MacGregor, Barb Galler-Smith, and L.S. Johnson || I pitched this panel so I get to be moderator-panelist for this one.

5pm: Ghost of a Chance || w/ E.C. Bell, Mark Leslie, and Laini Giles || same as above; I’m moderator-panelist here, too.

9pm onward: Noir Bar YYC || I’ll be one of many authors reading from their work at the event. Audience members cheer for their favourites and the winning author receives the Golden Skull. Come egg me on as I read from Devil Take the Hindmost and get in on the draw for host Axel Howerton’s neat door prizes.

Sat. Aug. 13

11am: Myth Adventures || w/ Chadwick Ginther, Rhonda Parrish, GMB Chomichuck, and Nancy Bell || I pitched this one too, and will be moderating only.

2pm: Survival Tips for Readings and Book Launches || w/ Marty Chan, Aviva Bel’Harold, Angela Ackerman, Jane Ann McLachlan

8-10pm Mass Autograph Session || open to the public || I’ll be on hand with little treats and my trusty Sharpie fine line!
