Assiniboine Forest

Ariel brought me to one of her favorite places in Winnipeg, the Assiniboine Forest, for a calming walk the day of her book launch. Although she made fun of my "practical" shoes, I had a nice time and wasn't too cold. We took lots of pictures and didn't eat any mushrooms.

Bestseller

Hump is a bestseller - so ok, in one store for a week, but still fantastic I think!

Hump Launch

I don't usually go to my author's book launches, but as luck would have it I had to be in Winnipeg anyway for a sales conference. It was wonderful seeing Ariel again and meeting her family. Her launch was so much fun and a ton of books were sold.
