VIU campus bookstore has The Haunting of Vancouver Island back in stock, so I stopped by Friday afternoon to sign their copies. Thanks to Tina for taking this video (more images below), and the rest of the staff for being both supportive and all around awesome. I’ve come to realize that kindness is a common trait found amongst bookstore folk. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I usually end up leaving each store with a huge smile on my face.
Last week was reading break at the university, so I took the opportunity to visit several bookstores on the southern part of the island. I signed books at Well Read Books (Nanaimo), Nanaimo Museum, Salamander Books (Ladysmith), Volume One Books (Duncan), Munro Books (Victoria), Russell Books (Victoria), and Bolen Books (Victoria). I also went to Chapters in Nanaimo and Victoria, as well as Westshore Coles in Langford and Tillicum Coles in Victoria. Westshore had just sold out again so they had no copies for me to sign. Tillicum Coles still had some from Christmas so I didn’t sign any there either. It is the only store I know of on the island that’s never sold out.
I was happy to have a chance to visit the stores as school has been tougher this semester than I’d anticipated. I’ll need a couple of more credits for my degree after this, but it looks like this will be my last full semester. I’m stoked about that because it has been hard to find extra time to write. I will be posting again soon though, to pass along details about my book reading at Well Read Books in Nanaimo on Thursday, March 29th at 5:30 P.M. This will be a six author event, which is a really cool concept. More details to come!
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with these images of The Haunting of Vancouver Island on bookshelves across the island. I’ve included pictures from a few places not listed above, as I visited these locations before the reading break. Would love to hear if you’ve come across the book in any random places as well.
As always, thanks for coming by. Without you, and people like you, The Haunting of Vancouver Island would probably still be an unlikely dream. So I’m grateful for your support.
Until next time!
