It’s finally here!

Spring that is!  And with it, crazy blossom-seeking folk, a month of short stories (!), and the Luminato Festival…  Chad Pelley, over at Salty Ink, is featuring an excerpt from a short story a day, and Steven Beattie also continues his take on a story per May day at That Shakespearean Rag.  Up with the short story!  ‘Dominoes’ from Mad Hope, will be featured today on Salty Ink.  Thrilling fact: ‘Dominoes’ is also featured in Spanish translation on the Chilean website 60watts.  The Hart House Review also recently reprinted the story in their beautiful journal — the review is available for sale at fine book stores near you.

May is good, but June will be all…  Luminatoed!  I am very excited about this year’s festival.  Am hoping to check out Ronnie Burkett’s new work, The Daisy Theatre.  I am a recent, but fervent fan!  And I will be reading and having conversations with readerly folk as part of the Literary Picnic on June 22nd in Trinity Bellwoods Park.  Hope to see you there!
