Chocolate and Chat Rockies Road Tour!

kc dyer and myself are on the first ever Western Canada Rocky Mountain Chocolate and Chat Road Tour. Together we are driving from Vancouver to Calgary, Calgary to Red Deer, Red Deer to Cochrane … and eventually back to Vancouver.

We’re not alone. Comic Life has sponsored this tour by providing a great draw give-away: free copies of Comic Life! This is a program that I personally have fallen in love with, and have used it as a unique way of blogging my author adventures. You can read a little about the sponsorship here.

So far, we’ve visited Chapters and Indigo in Kamloops and Banff.  Kamloops was fantastic, and they made us feel very welcome. The people we met there were interested in writing, and had some great questions. We would return there in a heartbeat.

Now we’re in Calgary, with two venues planned for tomorrow. At 1pm we’ll be presenting at Monkeyshines, and then at 7pm we’ll be at Owl’s Nest Bookstore. Thursday at 2pm we’ll be at the Red Deer Library, and at 7pm we’ll be at the Cochrane Library. Friday, we’re back in Calgary at Pages on Kensington at 7pm. Then, on Saturday, come see us at Spirit Quest books in Salmon Arm! Then, for our final stop, we’ll be in the Kelowna Chapters on Sunday at 6pm.

About jamesmccann

I grew up a reluctant reader, which basically means that adults thought I hated reading. Actually, though, I loved reading. I just didn't like the kind of books that adults thought I should like. I mostly read comics, and, thanks to a 3 day bus ride from Winnipeg to Kelowna that my family took every summer, I read dozens of comics. As a teen I became involved in Dungeons and Dragons, which gave me the tools necessary for story-telling. I used maps and pictures as a source of inspiration; a technique I still use today. From this I discovered a love for reading, and devoured everything fantasy. Now a resident of Vancouver, I write novels for teens. In 2005 I took on the role of VP for CWILLBC (Children's Writers and Illustrators of BC), and in 2006 I became their President. I'm still best known for my popular map-making workshop, and secondly for my ability to change reluctant readers into avid readers. My work can be seen in the Canadian Children's Book News, and on the shelves of bookstores in Canada, the US and Australia.
