Well, much is wrapping up this week, including a short fiction course I’ve been teaching at Vancouver Island University and my gig as writer in residence at the Greater Victoria Public Library. Between the two things I’ve been amazed at all the talented and passionate people on this “island approximately the size of Taiwan”.
Amazingly, I’ve almost finished two books as well. More on them later. And yes, I am severely tired. But that’s probably because I’m forty now and need more sleep.
In other book news, Harpercollins Canada will soon be releasing a mass market edition of Another Kind of Cowboy. Check out the new cover:
Isn’t it great! So dressage-y! Dressage Today, the premiere dressage magazine is planning to publish an excerpt from the book in September. I am all aflutter at the idea that some of my dressage riding heroes might read it!
Okay, I’m going to go and make some vegetable soup. I’m heading off to the Edgars in New York at the end of this month and I want to be looking fit. Suggestions for what I should wear are being gratefully accepted. My usual attire of gumboots and plaid shirt probably won’t cut it.
This is a picture of a special type of Hungarian pig. One of these is definitely on my list when I get my farm. Just think: I won’t need any sheep if I have a pig like this!
