Book Launch for Made Up Of Arias

How odd and exciting to be writing these words!

A small press called Blaurock Press in Kitchener-Waterloo has accepted a novella that I wrote sometime ago entitled Made Up Of Arias. The novella is based on a short story called "Opera" which I wrote and which was nominated for the Journey Prize eons ago and printed in a Journey Prize Anthology.

Blaurock Press is an independent literary imprint committed to "publishing good writing in well-designed and enduring books". The books are quite beautiful and lovingly done with a great deal of craftmanshuip.

Arias will be published in late November and will be edited by the esteemed, the adorable Stan Johannesen, author of Luggas Wood: A Novel and many other works. Many thanks Stan and Penny Winspur, Blaurock's publicist and supreme reader, for all your hard work. Both Penny and Stan may be seen on the Blaurock blog.

A special thanks to Christian Snyder, the founder and publisher of the Blaurock Press, for making this all possible.

A joint book launch with Coach House Press will be held on December 1st , 2008 at:

Starlight Social Club
47A King Street
North Waterloo
Tel. (519) 885-4970
The doors will be open at 7 pm, with book readings to start at 7.30 pm.

Till then!
