Blog Crossover!

Last weekend while Violet and I were visiting my parents in Ottawa, I had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow blogger Wendy at the Rideau Centre's Chapters. She treated me to a tea, and we had a lovely conversation about blogging, writing, the world in general, and old guys in transparent speedos (click here for an explanation of that one). Sadly, we only had an hour to chat before I had to get back to my parents (they want me all to themselves, you know), and I hope that sometime Wendy and I can have more time together to discuss the see-through speedo guy.

It was fun, meeting a blog friend in the flesh. I hope it happens more often, because I'd love to be treated to tea by the rest of you!

Wendy posted her version of this epic blog crossover last Sunday, and here I am finally getting to it now. It's been a busy week - I had a four-day telemarketing job, and Violet's hard at work on her thesis project for school, so my time at the computer has been minimal.

It was fun!!

And you never know, maybe FWSG will become character fodder for you sometime down the road! ;-)

I hope that when we next have to go to Peterborough (ugh!) we'll be able to sneak away early to spend some time in Toronto. We'll treat you and Violet to tea then!

I am Stefano an Italian translator who would like to ask if you or your Publisher by any chance sold the translation rights for your book Epoch to any Italian publishing house.
I enjoyed the book and as I am now living in Frankfurt would like to propose a glimpse of it translated (partially) into Italian at the International Book fair for any interested Italian Publishing House. If you could come also here, that would be great ( I know it´s a long way but that´s in October so a long time to plan everything).
You can contact me and know something more about me at my website
Hope to hear from you soon
