No Relation a Globe and Mail Bestseller

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

It was thrilling to learn yesterday that just three days after being published, No Relation debuted at number five on the Globe and Mail bestsellers list. I well remember when Up and Down was published, it opened at number seven. So this feels good. Of course, it happened because so many friends, family, and yes, perfect strangers, pre-ordered the novel or bought copies this week. I’m blessed and grateful. Thank you, all. Let the touring begin! It’s Creemore today, Thornbury tomorrow, Toronto Monday, Lindsay Tuesday, Toronto again Thursday, then Montreal on Friday. And that’s just the beginning…

Here’s Chapter 13 of No Relation, my new novel published this very day by McClelland & Stewart. In this episode, at Sarah’s urging, Hem goes all clock and dagger with a little help from Hat and Mario Andretti to try to divine just what might be going on inside the Hemmingwear Company. Then it’s off to Chicago where Hem and Sarah confront their father.

Today’s the day: No Relation is published

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

May 20, 2014 seemed a long way off when I finished the manuscript for No Relation late last summer. But it’s here, now. My thanks to my friend and editor, Douglas Gibson, my publisher, McClelland & Stewart, my awesome publicist, Frances Bedford, and my wonderful agent, Beverley Slopen, for making this happen. And of course I’m grateful for so many supportive friends and readers who have kept me motivated and loving what I do. Finally, none of this would have happened without my endlessly patient and encouraging family. Thank you Nancy, Calder, and Ben.

Here’s hoping you all enjoy No Relation. As of today, it’s now yours…

The first copy of No Relation

Friday, April 25th, 2014

It’s always a thrill when the first copy of your new book arrives. This is the fourth time I’ve had this experience and it never gets old. I found a package from Random House waiting for me at home last night and had an idea of what might be inside. I ripped it open and held the first copy of No Relation in my hands. It felt nice. Then, of course, I whipped out my iPhone and took a photo. Then I inscribed it to my wife, Nancy, a tradition I’ve maintained with each of my novels.

First copy

No Relation hits bookstores on May 20th, and the buzz seems to be building. I had a look at BookManager last night, a site that ranks current and anticipated books in Canada. I was heartened to see that No Relation is actually ranked number two among future Canadian fiction releases. How wonderful to be in the company of these other fine Canadian writers.

It won’t be long now. Just a few more weeks. Stay tuned for information about a Toronto launch event for No Relation in early June. In the meantime, I’ll be content just holding this first copy…
