Happy Poles Apart Publication Day

Yesterday, Poles Apart officially became a book on its formal release date. You should now be able to find it in bookstores across the country. I celebrated last night by helping our ball hockey team, and I use the word “helping” loosely, win our second consecutive championship before heading off to the hospital ER to have my chin sewn up. In a brilliant play that may have changed the face of our game, perhaps even the face of hockey itself,  and certainly my own face, I managed to dive and clear the ball from our zone while shorthanded, and then, because the dive on its own wasn’t quite dramatic enough, I decided to smash my chin on the concrete floor. (There’s not a lot of give in that concrete floor.) The good news is we won the championship. The bad news is I now have four stitches in my chin as I embark on some book-related travels to Woodstock, Surrey, Victoria, and Ottawa with seven speaking gigs in the next seven days. I’m hoping to at least get a cleft chin out of it.

Don't be confused. My twin brother Tim is kneeling in the front row while I'm standing at the right.

Capital Grill Chapter 11

Welcome back to the podcast edition of Poles Apart, my fifth novel to be published by McClelland & Stewart in just a couple of weeks. This week, Everett and Megan have dinner together, he almost comes clean about the blog, and it seems someone is very committed to discovering exactly who writes Eve of Equality.

Taiwan edition of No Relation to be released

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

The Taiwan edition of No Relation hits bookstores in, as you might expect, Taiwan, on October 21st, just one day after my fifth novel, Poles Apart, is released in Canada. And no, I have no idea why we landed a publishing deal in Taiwan, I mean beyond the tireless efforts of my literary agent, Beverley Slopen, and her global network of affiliates. But I’m glad we have a foreign publishing deal! Here’s the cover of No Relation in Taiwan.

No Relation to get new cover for 2nd edition

Monday, October 5th, 2015

The second edition of No Relation is due to be released in paperback form (with no flaps) on April 26, 2016. While I love the front cover of the original edition and its clever bear metaphor, I quite like the new cover the design wizards at McClelland & Stewart have come up with. As I understand it, the idea is to bring the second edition more in line with the design of Poles Apart. Makes sense to me. Here’s the new cover for No Relation:
