Let’s fins out more about TJ.

First I would like to thank Rosie for having me here and thank her for reading and reviewing my debut novel. I really do appreciate her taking the time out of her busy schedule for an obscure independent author.

1) Where is your home town?

I was born in East York and raised in North York, cities which no longer exist, having been absorbed by the Megacity of Metropolitan Toronto when it was created. I have also lived in Calgary, Alberta, Perry Sound, Ontario, Montreal, Quebec and made my home in the Eastern Townships of Quebec for most of the last decade before returning to Toronto at the end of June this year in order to promote my writing…

News, Windemere Questions, and Shtuff!

Waldorf and Statler from Muppets

Waldorf and Statler from Muppets

I’ve been working hard this week and things are only going to get crazier.  The toddler’s birthday party is coming up, so cleaning and putting a few presents together will take over tomorrow.  It shouldn’t be too rough until Saturday when all that last minute prep and the inevitable final hour uh-oh occurs.

Today is devoted to writing August blog posts because I don’t know when I’ll have time again.  A situation change that I can’t go into right now will limit my . . . well all my free time for the foreseeable future.  The toddler ends school on the 11th and then he’s home all day until early September.  This means I’ll only be doing computer/writing stuff in mornings, evenings, and the length of ‘Frozen’ when he gets his daily watching.  So I’ll be working a lot by phone and using Hootsuite for Twitter because The Compass Key should be live by that time.  I might get some  help for part of that time, but expect me to be like I am this week with very little presence outside of ‘likes’.  Again, I can’t really go into the situation on a public forum.

Anyway, here is the news:

  1. I will be revealing a Legends of Windemere Book Trailer on Sunday during the Goal Post.  It will be on Youtube, so I’d appreciate any likes and shares from that.  It was made by Sean Cooke whose blog you can visit and writer newsletter you can find HERE!
  2. I’ve been told that the completed cover art for The Compass Key should be ready early next week.  This is barring any sudden distractions and incidents.  That means I’m aiming to have the Cover Reveal on August 6th and the debut on August 8th.  Sorry for the delay on this, but a lot happened that was out of my control and plain odd.
  3. I will be writing the blog posts for the ‘Windemere Questions’ that I requested a while back.  I got a few and added some from other sources, but there’s always room and time for more.  Feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll add it to the list.  These posts will be going live in late August/early September after a week of character interviews.
  4. Reminder that ‘Bob’ will be revealed in all his Book 5 glory on Saturday.  I don’t remember if the section I posted is from before or after my edits, but you should get the gist of this bastard.  I can finally stop calling him ‘Bob’ too.

That’s really it for today and now I’m off to get a few things done.  Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week.

Why do you use a pen name?

There is a long literary tradition of writers using pen names. 19th century authors were keen users; Currer, Acton and Ellis Bell (the Brontes), George Elliot, (Mary Anne Evans), George Sand, Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain. There are many contemporary examples, too: Anne Perry, Anne Rice, and Toni Morrison, among others. No doubt their reasons are/were varied. There is no one reason why a writer decides to write with a pen name.

I started using a pen name because I wanted my ‘writing persona’ to be distinct to my ‘ordinary persona’…
