Who's on a Canadian Book Tour?

  Here's what I've learned about organizing a book tour for the forthcoming Chicken Soup for the Soul book, Christmas in Canada.
  1. There is no handbook or "Book Tour for Dummies" available.
  2. Canada is a long way from San Diego.
  3. There are no Canadian book stores in southern California.

    ...and the piece de resistance...

  4. "Who's on First" has no comparison to an Australian on the phone to a Hispanic book store owner in the United States talking about a Canadian themed book.

An Australian Writing About Christmas in Canada

  Chicken Soup for the Soul have confirmed the title and release date of their next book with one of my stories: Christmas in Canada, 14 October 2014.

  The irony of an Australian living in the United States writing about Christmas in Canada has not been lost, as planning for the book signing tour begins.

In Memorium

  The day could not pass without mentioning that but the for the stroke of a pen, there go I.

  In Memorium,  Mark Laurence Goodwin,  Constable of Police at the Brisbane Traffic Branch, died in the line of duty.

  He left behind a wife,  and two daughters, Megan and Alyse, aged 2 years and 8 weeks.

  Rest In Peace, my friend.
