Urban fantasy lit and graphic novels
So, this last weekend -- October 4th, 5th, and 6th -- I was in Ottawa for Can-Con: The Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature which was, in 2013, hosting Canvention 33. Now, because there's been some confusion, this is how it goes: Can-Con is a yearly Ottawa convention and has been a yearly Ottawa convention since at least 1992. Canvention is the yearly Canadian national convention which, because we have one heck of a lot of geography, is hosted at a different Canadian convention every year, alternating east and weat.

August 14, 2013 Hi everyone, I'm just back from my short publicity tour for Austenland, and very glad to be home with my boys. I hope you all are having a wonderful summer with your families, and that you have a few more weeks to enjoy (unlike Arizona, where we were back to school last week). With all the travelling, I only just heard about the current controversy, and I am both surprised and dismayed.

Nothing to Envy, Barbara DemickThe Last Minute, Jeff AbbottCurtsies and Conspiracies, Gail CarrigerThe Cuckoo’s Calling, Robert GalbraithDaughter of the Empire, Lady Pamela HicksWritten in Blood, Anne Bishop Since David Sedaris was generous enough to tout Barbara Demick’s book, I was glad to buy it. It’s everything he said it was, and amore. Demick’s account, built from many interviews of people who’d escaped from North Korea to South, is a unique book about a country that prides itself on keeping secrets. Under Communist rule, North Korea has ground to a halt, the economy so depressed that factories don’t run, so people don’t work, so . . . they starve to death. Nothing to Envy is shocking and touching and unforgettable.

By: Mike Jan 3, 2014 Patty's publisher, predictably, promotes and publicizes her paginated paper products. Er, helps advertize her books. One of the common promotional methods is to send early release copies of a book to major reviewers, bookstore buyers etc. These advanced readers copies (or ARCS) are typically printed based on an early manuscript, before final edits were complete) so there are often some glaring grammar errors and what Patty calls "construction debris" still in the manuscript.
