mainly sunny, cool, temps 10

Wonderful day for the book launch. I remember the launch last year, which we healf in a small theatre in Sutton and was sponsored by the Quebec Writers Federation and the local bookstore, Livre D'or. It was teeming rain...a real deluge. Frankly, I wouldn't have gone to the launch, if I didn't have to! Anna Asimakopolous drove all the way down from Montreal through the storm. Horrible.

Happily, and surprisingly, the place was packed.

I'm all dressed, showered, have the party frock on, the perfume (because that always helps at book launches...perfume and deodorant). Have Michael. We're heading out in about 5 minutes.

Don't know why, but I always get nervous at launches...even the local ones.

I'll tell you how it goes in tomorrow's blog. Wish me luck.

Dear Louise,

I hope the launching went as you wish. You are so humble, being surprise by the number of people who were there last year just because of the bad weather! I can tell you that if it wasn't because of my health, I would have gone tonight, no matter the weather, even if I had to swim to you... Can't wait to read you tomorrow, and thank you so much for letting me and all the others have a peak of your life!

I hope your book launch was fabulous and that you and Michael enjoyed it to the max. My local bookstore (in Melbourne, Aust.) tells me that The Murder Stone is due in at the beginning of November - just in time for my birthday - yay!!! What a treat!

Dear Frouch,

Aren't you wonderful. I signed a book to you and will be getting it to you at the event in Montreal next week. With pleasure!
