Cut You Down, Writers Fest, and November Events

The second Wakeland novel has a name, cover and publication date. CUT YOU DOWN will come out June 6th 2017 in Canada and the US. INVISIBLE DEAD will be released in America on May 2nd, 2017. I'm incredibly excited about this!


The Vancouver Writers Fest wrapped up last weekend. I was on a panel with Michael Koryta and Peter Robinson, moderated by Lonnie Propas. The first event I ever saw at the Writers Fest was Peter interviewing Ian Rankin, Denise Mina, Stuart MacBride, and Wayne Arthurson, so to be on the stage with Peter was a little surreal. The second event was a 'Sunday Tea" reading series where I read with Sharon Olds, Adam Hassett, Robert Olin Butler, Clea Young, and Eimer McBride. I'm very grateful for being included with such esteemed company--and now I can say I've read with 2.5 Pulitzer winners!

November will be a busy month. Tonight (the first) I'm part of an Asian Mystery Book Club featuring SG Wong, who will be in attendance to lead the discussion. Here's what else is going on:

November 2nd: Noir at the Bar Vancouver at the Sheen Whisk(e)y Room: This will be fun! A lot of out of town special guests, including Terry Shames, Will Viharo, and Michael Pool, who's launching his Fast Women and Neon Lights anthology. 

November 3rd: Alternate Histories Panel at the VPL Central Branch. I'm moderating a panel featuring SG Wong, Dietrich Kalteis, E.C. Bell and Janie Chang.

November 7th: I'm on a Giller Light Bash featuring Aislinn Hunter and Lisa Charleyboy. Should be fun!

I have a bunch of workshops and consults I'm doing with the Vancouver Public Library as their Writer in Residence. Please check for all of them.
