Whoo hoo! In theory, you should be able to walk into a bookstore or record store in Canada today and… actually purchase my debut book. Not sure if that’s a reality or not but today IS the official release date! The above video is the third instalment of the Adventures in Solitude Home Movies, giving you a better sense of the paradise that is Desolation Sound. The footage was shot at the Curme Islands, my favourite place to visit and swim in the Sound.
I’m spending the day at home signing all of the pre-ordered copies, thanks to all who have ordered them! Both book events on the weekend were a lot of fun, thanks to all who came… Word on the Street on Sunday and Rain City Chronicles on Friday. Next up in book event world is the official launch party here in Vancouver, at the MOV on Thursday October 7. It’s free with performances by Jill Barber and Said the Whale so if you haven’t already, please RSVP here. The Desolation Sound launch occurs the following night, Friday October 8, at Nancy’s Bakery in Lund.
Wishing you calm seas and northwest winds,
