you could join Booklounge.ca . they send out emails to let me know of local events (Toronto to London) on a regular basis. they often have contests to win tickets as well as a book by the author that is speaking.
Anyone in the Windsor area this Thursday, Oct. 22, feel free to stop by Phog Lounge, 157 University Ave. W., 7:00pm, in exciting downtown Windsor. I will be hosting a book launch of my latest historical mystery, To Know Evil.
