Giveaways and Cake and Thank Yous, Oh My!

Hi everyone!

Thank Youuuuuuuuuuu's...

My latest, The Migraine Mafia, is now well and truly launched! It's been a year in the making, and I'm thrilled it's finally out. I wanted to say thanks to my awesome beta readers: Carolyn Taylor (twice!), Aisha Khan Alam, , Ella Peters, and . Thank you thank you thank you!

Also many thanks to my awesome publishing team, editors  and tattooed treasure , as well as #Bubblecow, and cover artists @luckybatbooks.


Cake!

No book launch would be complete without cake! My better half, John, sneakily had Sugar Temptations whip up a delicious, gluten-free literary cake masterpiece for me. Yummo!

I couldn't have done all this without his support and general awesomeness. The cake is just a nice bonus :)

The View from my Writing Room

My better half, John, has whisked me away for a pre-Christmas ski jaunt this week, and this is the view from our balcony...

Look, Ma, no lines!

It's been a great week of writing, lazing about, occasional skiing, and general debauchery. (See left - this is what happens when you're too lazy to make ice). 

I can only hope that my REAL present is waiting when we go back home later this week. If what lunatic Toronto mayor Rob Ford says is true, women want thousands of dollars for Christmas...and I'll have a big stack of cash waiting for me under the tree. 

YAY!

On second thought, I'm content with my debauchery and skiing. Hope you guys get a chance to hit the hills this Christmas. It's great out there!

The Migraine Mafia is Now Here!

Hi everyone!

The Migraine Mafia is my latest book - the story of a nerdy thirtysomething's quest to come to terms with a chronic illness - and it's now in stores! It's on sale everywhere for .99 until Monday the 16th.

On paper, Viive McBroom lives the perfect life--a key player in a fast-paced, technical field, one promotion away from real success--but that's only if you ignore one little problem.

Sandwiched between one migraine and the next, Viive's life is like those choose-your-own-adventure books you read as a kid, only less fun and with a lot more drugs. And lately, as her bosses politely march her toward a vacation that might never end, even the good days feel like a struggle for survival.

Faced with frustration from her loved ones and the dark machinations of a new colleague, Viive feels herself getting pulled under by guilt, apologies, and workplace shenanigans. But then she meets the Migraine Mafia, a quirky, vibrant support group, and her fragile camouflage begins to crumble. She discovers that a room full of strangers just might be able to change the way she views her illness--and realizes that if she doesn't learn to ask for help, her health isn't the only thing she stands to lose.

Sometimes painful, frequently hilarious, always entertaining, The Migraine Mafia is the story of one woman's life-altering decision to thrive in the face of chronic illness.
