Happy New Year, folks!
Thanks to all who sent kind words over the holidays about Adventures in Solitude. I truly appreciate your correspondence and support, so much so that I will soon be posting a “Letter of the Week” here to share a few of your insights into… the end of the road.
My wife Jill and I found another end of the road location this holiday season, as we were lucky enough to enjoy a second, “official” honeymoon on a quiet, sunny island in the Pacific Ocean. The photo above was taken after a boat trip in to a local town for some much-needed civilization (read: shopping and cookie-eating).
And so now 2011 is upon us, and while the Christmas rush is over, I’ll continue with book events into the new year: this month I’ll be making stops in Calgary and Canmore, Alberta, and Fredericton and Moncton, New Brunswick (please see the Events page for details), but not before playing goal for the Vancouver Flying Vees in the yearly outdoor hockey tournament on Apex Mountain in Penticton BC. Let’s hope the knees hold together.
In other ‘upcoming’ news, the ebook version of Adventures in Solitude will be out very shortly, and in March, my wife Jill Barber releases her new album Mischievous Moon, which sounds and looks fantastic.
Happy New Year to you and yours, hope to see you somewhere soon!
