Mish-Mash Bubble-and-Squeak Awoooooooo!

1. Lycanthrovember

If you’re a fan of werewolf-themed literature, may I be so bold as to direct you towards Hic Dragones, where they are currently celebrating Lycanthrovember (which I’m sure is an official holiday somewhere) by offering a pretty sweet two-for-one sort of deal: buy a copy of ‘The Tattooed Wolf’ and get a copy of ‘Wolf-Girls’ absolutely free. YEEEEEAH!

“[K. Bannerman] displays unusual and sometimes uncomfortable characters, and I care about them all, the significant players and the extras. If you like reading stories about intriguing people, this story doesn’t disappoint. If you like short, satisfying reads between your ‘Harry Potter’ or ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ ten pound seat-raisers, then buy this book.”
– Joe Murphy, The Dragon Page

“[Wolf-Girls is] a refreshing contribution… well worth reading… It’s always nice to read stories with a strong female focus, especially in genres and thematic areas that are traditionally male-dominated where women are sidekicks or something to look at. The she-wolves in this anthology truly are themselves and feel strangely natural.”
– The Future Fire

2. Reading Out Loud

On Saturday, Nov. 8 at 4 pm, I’ll be joining author Matt Rader at the Village Muse Bookstore in bustling downtown Cumberland, BC to read from my newest novel, Mark of the Magpie. Wait a second, I think that requires clarification… I’m reading from my book, and Matt’s reading from his. Or we could swap, I guess. Either way, it’s going to be fun. I’ve heard a rumour that there will be the consumption of beer afterwards.  Hurray!


3. Trees

A week ago, we were partying to save the trees in the Cumberland Forest. What a shin-dig! How many places would hold a lively circus-themed festival with hundreds of joyful people to save the wilderness next door? I love this town. Take a peek at a the party, which Shawn captured in his moving light box and shared with the world on the cyber-you-space-tubes. Isn’t living in the future amazing?


3…2…1… LAUNCH!

Psst! Hey you!

I’m going to be launching my next novel, Mark of the Magpie, on Wednesday Oct. 22 at 7 pm, and you’re invited. In this sequel to Bucket of Blood, you’ll find British Columbian history, a little bit of murder, Victorian theatre, sassy ladies and clandestine affairs… the launch party should be fun! All welcome to join us at the Stan Hagen Theatre, North Island College in Courtenay, BC for this free event. Woot woot!
