I was lucky enough a couple weeks ago to appear on Global Television’s popular national morning show. I was a little nervous though I hope it doesn’t show. (To watch it, click on the graphic below.)

What a thrill it was to discover this morning that One Brother Shy has ascended to #1 on the CBC Books Canadian Fiction Bestsellers list. This is wonderful news and I’m grateful to everyone who has supported this novel including readers, booksellers, and my great team at McClelland & Stewart.

I love independent bookstores!

Friday, June 9th, 2017

I’ve had so much support from independent bookstores since beginning this writing odyssey more than a decade ago. And it continues. It seems One Brother Shy is being well-received by customers and staff of independent booksellers. I’m deeply in their debt and cannot thank them enough.

CBC Books just released their Canadian Fiction Bestseller List for the week of May 28-June 3. One Brother Shy sits nicely at #3. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to everyone who rushed out and picked up a copy as soon as it was released.

One Brother Shy hits the Bestsellers List

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

I was thrilled to wake up this morning to discover that One Brother Shy has hit the Paperback Bestsellers list. I’m honoured to have Margaret Atwood ahead of me. That feels like a big win to me. It’s also very cool to see just how many Canadian writers are on the list. Two-thirds of the two 15, including the top five, are Canadian.

Winnipeg Free Press Review

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

The first few weeks after a new novel drops, it’s always a rather anxious time as you await reviews from readers and critics alike. The response to One Brother Shy from readers, as reflected in the reviews on Goodreads, has been generally quite positive. But you also worry about what the critics will say.

The Winnipeg Free Press is first off the mark with their review. I’m breathing easier now.
