Chatting with Casey Ryan of @CuttingRoomMRB ~ Part 2

I had the great pleasure of meeting Casey over a year ago and was interviewed by him July 2011. Time flies!

Sunday, August 26th, I’ll be on his show THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR, once again, at 12 PM EST.

Casey is someone I’ve grown very fond of. He has wonderful guests on his show—filmmakers, artists, authors and is a terrific and generous promoter of indies.

In recent months, he also started his blog. His writing is stellar, which only makes me more proud to have him review my latest book, Spring into Summer.

It was great to meet Casey when he attended my book signing, and I’d encourage anyone who wants exposure for their projects—big or small to connect to him.

You’d be hard pressed to find a stronger advocate for the indie community.

Connect to Casey via his blog, on  Twitter @cuttingroommrb, and on his podcast

I look forward to speaking with Casey again, and I hope you’ll  join us,

Montreal Book Signing, Remembrance, and Thanks

I’m on a train headed back to Toronto as I write this.

I had my book signing in Montreal a couple of days ago.  The next day, I paid respects to my  father and his father at Mount Royal Cemetery.

My grandfather was a carpenter who inspired strength of body and mind. He taught me to wield a hammer and use power tools before the age of ten. It didn’t matter that I was a girl. My dad taught me many things, and one of the most important: humility—a quality I hold close to my heart.

They helped shape the woman I am today, and it’s a sad reminder they are gone when I can no longer share the milestones of my life with them.

One man, however, who is not gone is Mr. Joe Hackett, aka Jersey Joe, aka Tyrunn. He was my high school teacher for whom I wrote my first erotic story. Joe came to my book signing with a copy of Fall into Winter in hand—and his written critique in the margins. He even graded each of my stories! I have great respect for Joe’s opinion both as a teacher and a man, and I couldn’t have wished for a better response from him. Thank you, Mr. Hackett, (one of these days you’ll just be “Joe”) for always being you. Even when I was fifteen, I knew you were special.

Big thanks to Marie-Claire and Bernard for opening your store and hearts to me. Visit Odyssey Books the next time you’re in Montréal—it’s a true landmark.

Merci à Isabelle Maher  for your article about me in Le Journal de Montréal, and my friend, Mike Strobel of the Toronto Sun for making the introduction.  Also, my gratitude to Hotel Gault and its staff. I have stayed in many places in Montréal, but this was by far, the best service I’ve ever encountered. It’s a lovely home away from home.  

I was thrilled that Casey Ryan was able to come to my signing. He’s the talented podcaster behind The Cutting Room Floor who interviewed me back in July. So great to finally meet you!

To my friends—old and new, your presence meant the world to me. And last, but not least, a special hug to my mother who came and bought a copy of my book.

Chatting with Casey Ryan of the “Cutting Room Floor”

Tomorrow, July 10th, I’ll be on a talk radio podcast at 12 PM EST called the CUTTING ROOM FLOOR.

The show is hosted by CASEY RYAN, a Montreal native (Yay, my hometown!) whom I was fortunate to connect with after he interviewed author friend, Jason McIntyre. You can listen to Jason’s interview HERE from May 21, 2011.

Although The Cutting Room Floor has built its reputation on interviewing filmmakers and entertainers, Casey is definitely branching out to the indie author community, which is very fortunate for authors indeed!

Casey considers himself a pop-culture addict, and his enthusiasm and knowledge come across in his interviews. He’s extremely diligent and generous with his guests.

Casey was recently interviewed himself by independent blogger, John Hoff III and at The Farthest Reaches. You can also find him on Twitter.  Learn more about this fascinating man behind the show.

I look forward to speaking with Casey about my book, Fall into Winter, and I hope you’ll be able to join us. Feel free to ask questions. 😉

Stay sexy,
