Book Tour to the Kootenays!

I'm heading off for the beautiful Kootenays this weekend, about to spend a week touring around, talking about my books, and writing -- and maybe a disgusting plague symptom or two.

The tour is courtesy of the hard work of Leanne Strang of the Kootenay Library Federation. I'm so looking forward to meeting Leanne and the folks she has lined up for me to talk to along the way.

The Kootenays are in south-eastern BC, an area I haven't been to since I was very small, so I am just delighted this trip has come to fruition. Over the next week, I'll be doing talks in Grand Forks, Castlegar, Kaslo, Nelson, Trail, Salmo, Cranbrook, Fernie and possibly Kimberley. I'll have my camera and my computer, and Leanne assures me there are internet connections I can use at every stop along the way -- so I guess I will be bringing YOU with me, too!

(I promise to do a better job of the photojournalism than on the recent trip to New York, when I left the camera in Calgary en route...).

One of the absolute highlights of the trip for me will be a chance to see Deb Anderson, a most excellent writer, wise woman and friend.

Of course, the timing of this trip is typical kc dyer ... right smack in the absolute busiest, craziest time of year.

I'm choosing to think that's a good thing.
