I know some of you have had the unfortunate experience of going into the bookstore to find That Lonely Section of Hell is either not in or already sold out. Online sellers have plenty and the stores are stocking the book this week. Thanks for your support and perseverance.
Because the Globe & Mail had an exclusive for the excerpt, stores could not sell the book until that paper went to press on Saturday. Now, we are good to go! Apparently, the Globe & Mail’s review will be out tomorrow or Saturday of this week.
Here is the first review I’ve found of the book in yesterday’s Winnipeg Free Press. Take note: the first two paragraphs are more graphic and dark than anything in the book and contain some details I’m not familiar with. I hope no one gets the impression this book is all about grisly crime scene descriptions, because it most certainly is not. That said, once I got past those paragraphs, I found this review quite fair and reasonably accurate – can’t hope for more than that!
And finally, keep your ear tuned to CBC Radio One on Thursday Sept. 10th for my interview with Anna Maria Tremonti of The Current. This is assuming I’m not bumped for any candidates-peeing-in-sinks stories.
