“There are two literary maladies – writer’s cramp and swelled head.”

- Coulson Kernaben

I hope Dear Reader likes blue; there are lots of blue links in today’s post.

Saturday’s fundraiser was a big success. Loads of people attended, and all fifty chairs found good homes. Symphony Nova Scotia’s Education/Outreach programswill reap the $$$ rewards, which means all sorts of young people will benefit from exposure to the music we can give them. And the student volunteer crew, of whom I was in charge, were stellar, keeping their cool when the coat check was mobbed by eager guests. Only one scarf was lost, but then soon found. Yesss!!!

Now I’m busy reacquainting myself with Harbour View. This week I have a radio interview to think about, (for those in the area, a show called The Book Club hosted by Stephen Clare on CKDU 88.1FM on Tuesday, March 30 at 1:30); and in coming weeks I have readings lined up at a library and a nursing home, as well as some actual book clubs. Much of this is leading up to the Atlantic Book Festival, which will take place across the four Maritime provinces during the week of April 11 – 18. Such a thrill, and this is the icing on the cake!

I remind myself with a pinch – a really big pinch – that it was less than a year ago that I learned that Harbour View was going to be published.
