Hot Yoga, Hot Summer Nights, Hot Book Signings!

IMG_5269Whew – summer has been busy!

On top of completing my hot yoga teacher training, I’ve been focusing on new projects which I’ve had the privilege to receive grants for, (thanks Owl Kids and Ontario Arts Council!), as well as travelling and spending loads of scrumptious time with the family.

There were some fun book signings at Chapters Indigo in Waterloo and
Eaton’s Centre here in Toronto, where I met some amazing fans (shout-out to DJ Sam!).

SubstandardFullSizeRenderFullSizeRenderI’ve also started getting back to my other love: substantive editing, and am now offering in-depth manuscript assessments for fiction and non-fiction writers looking to find an agent and get published, either through the traditional route, or in the rapidly emerging world of self-publishing.

My new WIP received a grant based on a blind jury of peer assessors. (Not that I didn’t believe my Mom when she said she liked my writing 😉 ).

My new book, Summer Constellations, is currently going out on submission (cross your fingers it finds a great home!) and there are a thousand other ideas brewing around up there that I’m anxious to get out and into the world.

Of course, all is not always sunshine and rainbows. My incredible Canadian indie press has closed up shop, which is sad for KisIMG_5255sing Frogs and for YA fans everywhere. Hopefully, it too will find a new home.

Looking forward to soaking up these last few weeks of summer! Drop me a line and let me know how yours has been!

xoxo,

Alisha
