My Book Launch

Thank you so much to everyone, dear friends and wonderful (huge!) family, who came out to my book launch May 11, 2012. I am so grateful to have shared this special moment in my life with all of you. OVER 100 PEOPLE packed the bar! I cannot even explain how emotional and overwhelmed and happy I am. A million thanks to all. A special thanks to Blaurock Press for believing in the book, and bringing it this far – Christian Snyder, Stanley Johannesen, Penny Winspur, and Julie Blake.

Book News: The Music Makers

I’m thrilled to announce that my poetry book, The Music Makers, will be published in May with the wonderful Blaurock Press! This is truly a dream come true, and hopefully the first of many projects to come. I’m so pleased to be working with Blaurock, a literary publishing house “committed to publishing good writing in well-designed and enduring books.” And speaking of the physical book, my cover will be designed by my dear friend and photographer/designer extraordinaire, Kathryn Sarah. A huge special thanks to Stan Johannesen, Penny Winspur, Julie Blake, and publisher Christian Synder for making this all possible. On May 11, 2012, please join me in Toronto to celebrate the launch of The Music Makers at Proof Vodka Bar inside the Intercontinental Hotel Yorkville. There will be drinks, food, books, readings, and merrymaking. I would be so happy to see you all there!
