Lord, I Was Born A Traveling Man

August has been busy and it’s not going to let up, it seems.

I’ve started writing up a blog about my trip to Gimli, Manitoba and Islendingadagurrin, and realized that unless I want August to turn into the black hole of broken promises that my trip to Ottawa last summer (still awaiting a blog of its own–probably not going to happen now) has become, I’d better get on writing this trip up. And my trip to brilliant Calgary conference, When Words Collide. And my research trip to the Badlands of Alberta. I will write them. I swear.

But in the meantime, here’s some great news and a quick reminder:

The Winnipeg launch of Tombstone Blues has a time and place! October 15th at McNally Robinson Booksellers. Hope to see you there!

There is also less than one month left to vote for the Prix Aurora Awards, and here is my sole reminder that Thunder Road is short listed in the Best Novel category. Matt Moore has written an excellent blog about the Auroras and why you should vote, even if it’s not for him (or for me), so check it out, and please vote!

Write on!
