Julie Wilson of Seen Reading is doing a podcast series of readers reading out loud.
This is not my best reading ever. In fact, it’s actually a pretty poor reading. But it’s a GREAT project!
That Mini Book Expo is ON? Right now? Over at www.minibookexpo.com. Yes this year it even has a brand new, shiny URL of its own. (Which also means this is all I’m going to say about it here.)
This year I’ve invited the publishers to partner with us and the response has been phenomenal!
11 books ready to be claim [...]
As I’ve said before, after months and months and months (and months) of working on it, the books are here and we’re having a party! TOMORROW!!
The CheapEats Ottawa Book Launch & You’re Invited!
CheapEats Ottawa Book Launch Feb 13th, 7pm-9pm at East African Restaurant in Ottawa, sponsored by Beau’s All Natural Brewe [...]
I’m still reeling from the the very rapid transition from being a desk-hermit, office-bound 7 days a week, 10-12 hours a day, for 2 months; to being a social butterfly flitting about town with my new camera to a photoshoot, an afternoon blogger-schmooze with 40 other bloggers, and a national television studio.
Freestyle Photoshoot: The [...]
What a day!
Finished & delivered the book. Thanks for all the woo hoos echoed back from around the country. (We sounded off from Cape Breton to Vancouver.)
Got me a brand new camera – Canon S5is. It comes with slick new features like:
better low-light capabilities (for restaurant and event shots),
a larger view screen (for my cr [...]

(tags: ancientforestfriendly cheapeatsottawa ecostatement book publishing ceot)
It’s time for a happy dance and a big whoop of joy! (not to mention the ceremonial opening of the new camera)
After working on this book for over 20 months, we have just delivered the book to the printers.
Now, I don’t believe this is the end of the work – there will be more proofs to review, corrections, errors we find aft [...]
[Looking for a holiday message? I give you an Xmas story: Is that you Santie Claus? Happy Ho Ho Ho!]
Monitoring the posting on the blog, you might think I’ve gone into hiding for the last month or so. When in fact I have been on the phone steadily since the month began. And it has been successful!
Only 9 pesky restaurants still elude [...]
As most of you know, because I’ve tapped you to do some proof reading or emailed asking you to zip over and check the price for poutine at a pataterie with no phone, we’re in the throws of book production on the new edition of CheapEats Ottawa. My hope (cross-your-fingers-the-printers-will-agree) is to have it in bookstores before [...]
Getting the books up onto miniBookExpo for Bloggers is going slower than I hoped, but the books are already starting to get snapped up.
Claim it – Read it – Blog it.
Here are the titles that got added yesterday:
Delible [Anne Stone]
Eye of the Dream [Elizabeth Sinclair]
Extreme Career Performance [Sandra Boyd / [...]
What books did you love as a child?
Submitted by hearts.
The Oz books were a big favourite – my dad read them to me. All of them. I still have most of the ones he read from. I think my favourite was The Marvelous Land of Oz which introduces Tip/Ozma & Jack Pumpkinhead But the first time I saw the movie I was 31 and I’ve nev [...]
Finally Amazon has both CheapEats Toronto and CheapEats Ottawa on their virtual shelves! With their covers. Yay!

I’ve just been invited to join in the Word On The Street‘s Blogging Toronto Discussion Panel with Matt Blankett at 12:30 in the Wordshop Marquee. Don’t know where that is? Me either, but it looks like it’s in the North East quadrant of Queen’s Park.
If you’ve never been to The Word On The Street, i [...]

This exclusive workout opportunity will combine heavy lifting, aerobic exercise and stairs with plenty of reps.
Tomorrow afternoon at 3pm, 28 cases of CheapEats Toronto 2007 will be arriving on the back of a [...]
Vox’s QotD today leaves me questioning – do I really have a “nightstand”? I certainly have piles upon piles of books beside my bed, in the living room, on my desk, beside my desk, on Gerry’s desk, in a bookshelf or twelve… books-a-plenty my friend.
What books are on your nightstand?
So, I’ll answer t [...]
