novels & novelists…on tour!

20130403-022120.jpg

Remember taking road trips back in the days before portable DVD players? I went on a family trip to the east coast when I was twelve. We went for two weeks. I believe I brought about a dozen books. My parents got mad at me and my brother for missing all the beautiful scenery. What can I tell you, we were full-on book-loving nerds.

Well this time, Laura & I are heading to the east coast and it will be slightly more surreal, because the books we will be bringing along are books that I wrote! By this Thursday (March 28th) I will have the first physical review copy of my debut literary novel, “The Mall of Small Frustrations” in my hands. Hopefully it will be error-free and ready to be printed by the bushel! The cover design was done by Adam Therrien, and he did a fantastic job. Here’s what that cover looks like!

The tour will be a whirlwind, but we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones as we cruise through the ridiculously beautiful landscape. This time, I will see the sights, I promise! The tour culminates in a big full-band show at Hugh’s Room in Toronto — the official book launch for the novel. It will be a huge show, hosted by David Newland and featuring a songwriter circle with Ron Hawkins, Stephen Stanley, and Andrea Ramolo!

I am excited, to say the least. Here are the tour dates, please spread the word and join us where you can:
