Holy Crow -- it's almost here!
SiWC2012 is three weeks away today -- and preparations are going strong.
This year, our bookselling partner, Chapters Indigo, is helping us kick things off in a big way. On Thursday, October 18th they are throwing us a great big fundraising* party at the Strawberry Hill Store in Surrey.
When you join us for a 1920's cocktail-style party from 6-9 pm, you'll have an opportunity to chat with your favourite best-selling writers over refreshments, and get your books signed on the spot. Part of every sale for the evening goes to our conference -- so come do your Christmas shopping early!
Care to hear who will be joining us? How about...
Mary Balogh, author of nearly 100 love stories, including the upcoming SURVIVORS septet.
Diana Gabaldon, author of the brilliant OUTLANDER series and the brand new A TRAIL OF FIRE.
JJ Lee, author of THE MEASURE OF A MAN, one of the most lauded Canadian books of 2012.
Chris (CC) Humphreys, author of A PLACE CALLED ARMAGEDDON and many more.
Michael Slade, Author of the Special X series and his most recent RED SNOW.
Jack Whyte, whose latest novel THE RENEGADE will be premier at this event.
Tell your friends, neighbours, relatives! Come one come all!
