Spreading the Love around Toronto

While in Toronto I had the chance to connect with a group that’s “nuts about walls, street art, urban art, new art & graffiti.” They live in and love Toronto and the wonders of its urban geography. They launched Free Art Fridays, where each Friday they provide clues to hidden art treasures around the city.

I thought it was an innovative and worthwhile initiative, so I autographed three copies of  eloves me, eloves me not and donated them to the project.

On October 25, 2013 it was our turn.

The three Toronto free ‘eloves me, eloves me not’ giveaway locations were:

  1. Hotel Le Germain
  2. The Drake Hotel
  3. The Old MIll

For those of you who ‘found’ these books, I hope you enjoy them. I’d love to know who you are and what you think about the story.

And thanks to http://wllnttz.com/ for helping to spread the love throughout my favourite city.

Like you said, if only real love were this easy to find!

 

 

eloves me, eloves me not’s Word on the Street, Toronto debut was a Stellar Success!

The Word on the Street Festival in Toronto certainly delivered on its promise!IMG_3367 

We had a great day connecting with other authors and services dedicated to the literary world.

 

I met fans and readers, shared insights about the book, took photos with friends old and new.

And I even sold some books to curious readers and gave away some Aussie schwag.

Thanks to everyone who came out, those who bought books, those who took photos, interviewed me, brought me flowers, promoted the event through social media and to those who brough us Timmies and especially to my friend Wendy who, as she’s been since the day we met, was there beside me from start to finish.

Thank you! You are all priceless treasures! And, when it comes to friends and fans I am truly blessed. xxx

Some Ellen Degeneres Show Fun at Sydney’s Opera House – #elleninoz

IMG_1885 IMG_1890 IMG_1898 IMG_1902 IMG_1906 IMG_1904Had great fun at The Opera House today

 

Thanks to: @TheEllenShow, @jeannieeeee and @andylassner et al.

Ellen has the best fans – everyone was friendly, full of energy, happy and well behaved. Organisers were on hand with sunscreen and water, ’cause, man, it was HOT! And of course, local media were out in full force capturing all the fun.

While I”m not getting on a plane to LA to meet Ellen (yet), I met cardboard Ellen and some wonderful people, had some laughs, and I did get the chance to give away a few books, including a specially autographed one for Ellen for her birthday – hopefully she actually gets it.

If today was any indication, March is going to be a blast!

Can’t wait!
