|Beautiful Penticon, BC|
and the city of Kelowna...
BTW, the Okanagan is a popular tourist destination, famous for its wine.
Below is what I'm leaving behind, which is anybody's guess:
or hot summer days at Cluculz Lake?
I did manage to get some weeding done. But notice how little blooms I have? The joy of living in the beautiful north. Hopefully, they'll be there by the time I get home.
All week, I've been working with Theytus, calling bookstores, setting up dates to do book signings, and readings at the Kelowna and Penticton libraries. None of this puts me in my comfort zone, but at the same time, I'm not going to the dentist, so it's time to lighten up. I like people, and I really appreciate my readers, so putting that into prospective means a book tour can and should be a lot of fun.
Already I'm receiving great response over my protagonist, professor Brendell Kisêpîsim Meshango. I have to confess, she wasn't working for me until I clipped a photo of who I believe would make a perfect Brendell in the "movie". I took one look at actor Tina Keeper's face and knew I had my Brendell.
I remember when Max Barry sold the rights to his novel Syrup in 2006 and said on our writer's list that he couldn't wait for the movie to come out. At this moment, Syrup is in production starring Amber Heard.
And because I believe in positive thinking, I must say, "Tina, you're going to make a great Brendell!"
