Gettin’ out on the street


Gearing up to participate in my very first Toronto Word on the Street tomorrow. And I’m absolutely thrilled that I’ll be part of it. Between noon and 1 p.m., I’ll be at Crime Writers of Canada’s booth, #233, at the south end of the festival near College Street. With copies of Safe Harbor on hand, of course, to sell and sign.

Word on the Street is now in its 23rd years in Toronto, and it will be a terrific opportunity for authors to connect with potential readers—more than 200,000 people are expected to attend. It will also be a chance to connect with other authors who are always so helpful in promoting fellow writers. Crime writers, for one, will be out in large numbers tomorrow. Twenty-one crime writers are down for one-hour signings throughout the day at the CWC booth, and others will be signing at other locations.

The day will be a grand celebration of the written word!

This year, the Toronto will take place around Queen’s Park rather than in it because the park is closed for renovations. The festival gets underway at 11 a.m. and runs till 6 p.m.

Now, I need to start praying that it won’t rain tomorrow. And dig out my giant rain poncho, just in case.

Word on the Street will also be held in Kitchener, Saskatoon, Lethbridge and Halifax tomorrow. Vancouver’s festival takes place next Sunday, Sept. 30.
