It's been so long!

It's been a long hiatus. Like seriously long. I don't think I've ever been away from you guys for so long. I've really actually missed you guys! I know I took time off because I really really needed it, but still, I wound up quite missing the old blogging community and I am happy to say that I am back.

But not with a very long post.

I am here today to announce that tomorrow I will be jetting off to Vancouver Island to take part in the TD Canadian Children's Book Week Tour. I'll be spending the week doing readings and talks around the Island and I am really excited! Maybe a little terrified, but mostly super excited!

There are a couple events open to the public, if you are in the area and keen to attend:

Monday, November 16, 19:30

Victoria Children’s Literature Roundtable

971 Bank St., Victoria

Tuesday, November 17, 14:00

Salt Spring Island Public Library

129 McPhillips Ave.
Salt Spring Island, BC

If you can't make it to the island this week, have no fear I will be blogging about it, so do stay tuned!

Lastly, here is a picture of me with my very fabulous Heart of Hawick Children's Book Award (all the way from the UK)! Thanks again to all the kids who voted for "Alex", you totally rock!

And now I'm off, but not for long. Feels too good to be back! Thanks for your patience everyone, I really really appreciate it.

That is one fine looking award. The first of many I'm sure.
