Another brief visit with some news

Not that anyone has asked, but I have imagined that some people may wonder why I keep the Temp part of "The Temp, The Actress and The Writer". I haven't temped in over a year. Seems silly. Well. One reason is because temping was a part of my life and had a lot to do with both my acting and writing careers, so it doesn't feel quite right doing away with it.

Also it is really tough finding a good title. And "The Temp, The Actress and The Writer" is a good title.

And on that note. . . . and brilliant segue . . . . I would like to announce that I have a title for my next book (or at least the American title, it may yet change in the UK) . . . ready for it . . .

Timothy and the Dragon's Gate.

I like it very much.


Next bit of news. I will be speaking at the monthly breakfast held by The Writer's Circle of Durham Region this Saturday. Here is all the info if anyone is interested.

Lastly can I say that I really miss you guys? - and I have much to share (Hallowe'en stories, pictures and of course the tale of the Texas Book Festival). But I simply have to focus on the writing right now. I hope to be with you all very very soon though!

Big sloppy kisses!

Hi Adrienne,

I enjoyed checking out your blog. I'm a recent grad in Silicon Valley, and I've just started a company that is mapping the blogosphere to our world. I noticed that your blog has great content and a good-sized readership, and it would be great to have you on the map. Here is an example of a blogger in Georgia who's plugged in: It can be fun to explore different localities.

It's an easy process to get on board, and I can be reached at for questions or feedback. If you resonate with the vision of painting a global canvas of voices, please give VerveEarth a mention.

Cheers! -Clayton

Great title!

FYI, my stepdaughter is moving to Hamilton later this month ... so I'll have a reason to come up that way. Maybe I'll actually be able to attend one of your book signings some day!

Or, maybe you could make your way down here sometime (DC area). Hint.Hint.

Love the title, Adrienne! And can't wait to read the book!

Take your time with the pictures and stuff-- what we really want is TIMOTHY AND THE DRAGON'S GATE on shelves as soon as possible. :-)

Here is the exciting news. I attended the Backspace seminar in New York this week and they raffled off books of several authors who had attended previous seminars and there was Alex and the Ironic Gentleman. I tried unsuccessfully to win but I am happy to report that one of your fellow Canadians won and she was thrilled beyond measure since you and she are Canadian writers. I told her about your blog and hope that she will stop by.

Great title - hope the writing is going well!

Heidi the Hick said...

Oooh! We love dragons here!!!!

Adrienne said...

Hey guys! So not ignoring you all, just still trying to focus on work - still had to thank you for your lovely comments!

david - thanks!

jen - and thank you you too!

JMM - I am very flattered with all the exclamation marks in your comment, thank you!

JM - they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery . . .

holly - thanks! Hope things are going well!

linda - ooh I do hope you can come to Toronto some day, if you are in town give me a shout! (would love to visit DC though too)

Maddy- you are very sweet! And I promise great blog posts soon . . .but yes, I continue to focus on Timothy.

Terrie - that is so cool! I had no idea Backspace was doing that! And I am sorry you didn't win, but I think it's sweet how excited my fellow Canadian was. We are silly that way about our own. We like to play a fun game which consists of sitting watching tv and telling Americans, "She's canadian, so she. He is also. He's married to a canadian . . ."

breka - thanks! The writing is coming along nicely actually!

heidi - excellent! I do what I can to please the Hick family!
