Publishers' Lunch

We spent Saturday out on the water with Dawn Kresan, publisher of Palimpsest Press, and her family. Somehow, miracles of miracles, we managed to make it through most of the day without talking about business. Not much wind, alas, though it was nonetheless a picture-perfect day. Don't expect that there will be too many more like it.

A lot on tap this week: the last copy-edit of Marty Gervais's Rumrunners, review copy mailings for Moya's Dance With Snakes, Robertson's Moody Food, Sarah's Pause for Breath (due back from Coach House in the next day or so.) Re-reading Nieve, Terry Griggs's fabulous YA novel -- destined for a Spring 10 release -- and readying Spring 2010 catalogue copy and covers. Trying to get CNQ 77 off. Event planning. And preparing for Eden Mills this coming Sunday, where we've been blessed with a surfeit of authors. Grant Buday, Kari Grimstad (reading for Hans Eichner), Terry Griggs, Ray Robertson, and, of course, Leon Rooke. Should the weather be as excellent as it has been this past week, should be a wonderful festival.
