Writing and Publicity
“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out into the public.” Winston Churchill
My novel, The Brink of Freedom has been on the shelves since the beginning of October. It had already received a certain amount of media attention. This is always incredible for an author who toils alone, uncertain in the end if anyone will notice. Last week The Brink got a little more of a boost on the CBC weekend program, North by Northwest. In case you missed it here is the interview I had with Grant Lawrence.
In addition, an article about The Brink was written in The Greek Reporter.
Thanks to both the CBC and The Greek Reporter for shining a light on my novel and on the little festival I organize in Whistler every year. Both writing and organizing are beasts I struggle with daily. So when these efforts get some attention it is incredibly satisfying, and I suppose, a boost to the ego. We can all use a little of that.
