Busy, Busy April

Lots of things happening in April for me. With Cammie Takes Flight due to be released the last of the month I’m getting just a pinch excited. It’s always exciting when you bring a new book into the world.

Yesterday, I visited with the students at Via Vita Academy in Sackville to talk a little about writing and publishing. They had some great questions for me and I had a lot of fun.

I’ll also mention that there’s a giveaway taking place right now on Good Reads for  Cammie Takes Flight. Head on over and enter. You could win one of three copies if you’re lucky. https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/230730-cammie-takes-flight . Hey, I’d be entering if it wasn’t my book. I mean who doesn’t want to win a book, right?

Of course there’s Easter coming up this month as well, not to mention Miss Charlotte’s birthday happens to fall on Easter Sunday this year. Seven years old—now how did that happen so quickly?

I’ve also been invited by the Annapolis Friends of the Library in Annapolis Royal to take part in a fundraiser on the 22nd in the former Annapolis Royal Regional Academy.

Saturday the 29th I’ll be at the LaHave River Books taking part in Author for Indies along with my friend Syr Ruus, Shelagh Meagher and Laurie Lacey will also be there. If you’re in the area that day drop in and say hello. I’ll be there from 1-2. There might even be some copies of my new book floating around that day.

On the 30th is the Family Connects Expo at the World Trade & Convention Centre in Halifax and I’ll be signing copies of my new book. I love meeting new people and having a chance to chat. Signing books is kind of cool, too.

The official book launch is scheduled for the 13th of May at 2:00 and if you’re in the area you might want to drop by to meet Prime Minister  Trudeau or the Queen. (That’s me still dreaming big.) And while that’s not an April event I’ll mention it anyway. Preparations are already underway and I feel so fortunate to have so many people offering to help out. Seriously, East Dalhousie is the best place to have a book launch. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive community.

So there you have it, a rundown of my busy April and then I mustn’t forget my regular Monday-Friday job on top of all that, plus the novel I’m working on in my spare time. But there’s nothing wrong with busy. Keeps me out of trouble.

FYI I’m still continuing to dream big. I hope you are too.

  3. Lots going on for you – hopefully Nimbus gets lots of publicity for you and Cammie this spring! See you soon…


    • Yes, publicity is often key. Congratulations of the award nominations for your beautiful “Sky Pig.” Glad you’re having a good trip. Let me know when you get back!


  4. Sounds like a busy, fun, exciting time. I can´t believe Miss Charlotte is 7 already. I remember when she was born!! Have a fun celebration.


    • It is scary how quickly they grow up. Soon she’ll be in the double digits. Thanks, Darlene. Launches and signings are always fun. I can hardly wait for my copies to arrive in the mail. 😀

    Congratulations Laura!! Can’t wait to read it!! You do have a busy month … but I agree, busy is good!!🙂 Hopefully I will be able to come to your book signing this time – depends on the work schedule.


    • That would be nice if you could make it, Janice. Besides, if Justin Trudeau or the Queen show up you wouldn’t want to miss out on a chance for a selfie, would you? 😉
