road trip reading

by brittniinink

After a couple of days of adjusting to the lack of ocean in Windsor, I’m finally sitting down to write about the reading I did in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.

If you’ve never been to the east coast of Canada, it is an absolutely gorgeous place. My husband’s family lives in Nova Scotia, and I love visiting them.

This year, we did the road trip thing, driving there and back again with a van full of friends. There was surprisingly little drama for a group of six people stuck in a vehicle for 23 hours!

But it wasn’t all sightseeing and ocean times. I had work- a reading!- to do.

Every event I read at, I’m always struck by how distinct each reading is from the others. Maybe it’s because I haven’t done a ton yet (I think this one was reading number 5), but so far the people, the setting, and the way each reading goes gives it a character all its own.

The reading at the New Glasgow library was in a community room featuring these incredible wall-spanning charcoal drawings by Curtis Botham. The library staff gave us a warm welcome, and were super accommodating when we asked for a group photo. I read a couple of sections, and answered some questions about the book. Some people had read The Patch Project, and some had not, so I had to make sure I didn’t give out any spoilers!

A wonderful time, with wonderful people! Thanks to everyone who bought a book this past month, making my trip out there possible ❤

Now that I’m back in Windsor, I’m looking to the fall and what kinds of things I’d like to accomplish before the end of the year. A few more readings? Finish writing the sequel? Complete NaNoWriMo?

In any case, it will be an adventure!
