But hey — had SUCH a great time meeting the lovely Samara and other readers at Otter Books in Nelson. I mean — it seriously was the BEST. And anyone who builds a window like this one…
…is ACES in my opinion.
Samara created a magical atmosphere, [naughty] readings were held, books were sold and So. Much. Fun. Was. Had.
Top it off with a good natured Kilt-wearing man, who posed [complete with flip-flops] for this shot:
…and you KNOW it was a blast.
Thank you Samara for being the cutest kilt-wearing bookstore host EVER!

After Nelson, I took a trip to Radium BC, and there with the blessing of Radium Public Library’s head librarian Jane Jones, I met up with a group of young writers by Skype, from their location in Surrey Public Library. Technology bringing writers together! If you have a young writer in the neighbourhood who would like to join in, you can contact Carmen Merrells at Surrey Public Library — those kids are ready to wrestle the written word into submission!
The FINDING FRASER Book Tour Extravaganza continues tomorrow morning with a gawdawfulearly [7:15 am!] appearance on the CTV morning breakfast show in Calgary. Then from 11 am until 4 pm, I’ll be at the Signal Hill Indigo in Southwest Calgary, signing books and telling stories. As always, wear your kilt or knitwear and win a chance at a prize!
Come join me…?
