LANDING GEAR’s official publication day was yesterday, 15 April. The day kicked off with several centimetres of snow here in Toronto, a breakfast reading down the lake in Burlington, put on by the wonderful bookshop, A Different Drummer, followed by a series of meetings and meet-and-greets, and a wonderful lunch with my publishers. LANDING GEAR is now available in all good bookshops as well as all e-retailers in Canada. US and UK in May!
