Yesterday I went to Chapters and bought Imaginarium 2012. Yes: I walked into one of my bookstores and bought a book with my story in it. Somehow it feels bigger than seeing my name in a book in the first place--which was cool and all, but this book was living in the wild.
There are more copies there, if you want one!
The last few weeks have been rather scattered, from a writing perspective, but I have been immeasurably cheered by an awesome review from Bogi Takács, a blogger I have been reading for a few months, who writes wonderful and cogent reviews on a laudably regular basis, and also a shout-out from Liz Bourke on Tor.com.
Let this post serve as an inadequate but heartfelt thanks to everyone who reads my work, whether you respond in public or think about it in private. I'm so glad that some of what I am doing works for you... and I'm so grateful that in turn, you are seeing me, and through your observation, making me real.
