Calgary, Pages, and Everyone,

The Calgary launch of Thumbscrews may have been the best night of my life.

Thank you for coming. Thank you for laughing at the right parts and tittering at the best parts. Thank you for saying nice things to me, whether from behind a podium or behind a glass. Thank you for forgiving me when the reading ran short. Thank you for refilling my glass of white wine. Thank you for signing my book. Thank you for buying my book. Thank you for all coming out to celebrate with me. That you for your love and your positive energy and your genuine fucking happiness.

Thank you Pages or being as excited as I was. Thank you Christian for introducing me. Thank you everyone for taking all of my best-case-scenarios and blowing them out of the fucking water.

I can't properly express the amount of love I have for my city and my friends. Thank you.

This book's been launched proper. I'm off on the tour now; I hope the next month is even an either as fabulous as last night.

an open letter

Dear Women With Enormous Fake Boobs,

Congratulations. Your breasts now look like a pair of googly eyes.

Best of luck,

Early this week, a box arrived. George took to it immediately.

When we eventually managed to extract George from his new nest, the box's delicious contents could finally be drooled over.

Thumbscrews is here, and it's beautiful. The cover, which I knew was sexy to begin with, is even lovelier in person. I am wild about the typesetting. The size is perfect. All in all, it is a tight text package that I am genuinely proud of. Snare did an excellent job; I couldn't be more pleased.

Holy shit, that's my name. I have a book.
