Hey All,

I'm still recovering from Sci-Fi on the Rock, this past weekend in St.Johns, Newfoundland. We signed some books and made lots of new friends, and overall had a grand time!

Also present at the convention was good friends, and Engen-Books founder Matthew LeDrew, aswell Iceberg Partner/Author Kenneth Tam. Also present was fellow authors William Meikle (Watchers Trilogy) and Louise Bohmer (The Black Act), and actors Vaugh Armstrong (Star Trek Enterprise), Peter Mayhew (Star Wars Episodes 3,4,5,6) and Christian Simpson (Star Wars Episode 1) .

We should be doing another public event soon, but more details will be annouced on that very, very soon.

Sci-Fi on the Rock

Hey all,

Jennifer and I will be appearing at Sci-Fi on the Rock, this Saturday and Sunday (April 25th/26th) at the Holiday Inn in St.Johns, Newfoundland. We'll be selling copies of the first volume for a special event price of $10 and promoting the second volume. For those in the area, feel free to drop by and have a chat. We'd love the company.

Also present at the event is Engen-Books Founder Matthew LeDrew, our close friend - Iceberg Publisher Partner/Author Kenneth Tam, Louise Bohmer and William Meikle.

Hope to see some of you faces there! (And your bodies too, elsewise that'd be pretty creepy.)
