Charlaine Harris in Toronto
Before I get into the details I want to give a quick wave to all the Blood Lines readers in the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, France, Australia, Italy, Romania, the Philippines, and Denmark! According to the metrics those are the top ten countries in terms of my readership. Hi, guys (and also hallo, alright?, allo, g'day, ciao, salut, kumusta ka?, and hej)--and thanks/danke/cheers/merci/ta/grazie/mulţumesc/salamat/tak!
But wherever you're from if you happen to be in Toronto on 18 July, stop by the Indigo bookstore at the Eaton Centre at 7 pm, where Charlaine Harris will be talking about and signing copies of her new book, Dead Reckoning. (By the way, you can read the first chapter of the book here.)
Harris will also be attending her first Canadian convention at Polaris on July 15 to 17, where she'll be signing autographs, reading, participating in Q & A and attending the blastoff party. Polaris is being held at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel and you can find out more info about it here.
Besides Charlaine Harris other vampire-friendly guests attending Polaris include: Meaghan Rath (Sally, Being Human US); Armin Shimerman (Principal Snyder, Buffy); Adam Baldwin (Marcus Hamilton, Angel, but more importantly--Firefly's Jayne!); Melinda Clarke (Kelly Donovan, The Vampire Diaries); and authors Kelley Armstrong, Karen Dales, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Nikki Stafford.
Maybe I'll see you there...
