Rock. Paper. VIA.

Actually, scissors.  That's what I used to 'cut and paste' this article published in last Thursday's Kingston This Week. Katrina Geenevasen's writing added human interest, while Rob Mooy's photo puts me in one of my favourite places - trackside at Kingston's VIA station.  The paper has been doing a series on local authors and their books, and it was nice to be included in some great, and very creative company.

The article concludes with a nice tie-in to the Kingston Rail-O-Rama at the Ambassador Convention Centre and Resort on Princess Street on March 16 & 17, just a stone's mega-throw away from the station.  I'll be hosting a table there, with all three of my books available, my pen fired up for inscribing, and some other goodies for sale.

Hope to see you there,


  1. My dear baby bro' is quite an entrepeneur!! Good for you!!

  2. Awesome article... although I think the book I have from you is defective as it doesn't *literally* fly off my bookshelf. ;)

  3. Thanks Allison and Steve for your kind comments. Eric the Entrepreneur, perhaps. Eric the Magician more likely. I can make books fly! Seriously, many copies of my first book flew out of my basement. I hope the next two will, also.

    Credit must go to my graphic designer Bryan Babcock and his colleagues at Allan Graphics here in Kingston. Though I described his excellent efforts to the reporter, there are no references in the article to their fine work.

    It's nice to have capable people to deal with locally. Kingston really is a 'big small town'.

    Thanks again,
