It’s finally time to update this site to do more – with my next series of books.
Pickles vs the Zombies will be coming out in the fall of 2019 with DCB Publishing, and I will need a place to update you all on its progress!
The next Portia Adams book is moving into adult territory, and was picked up by Cormorant Books, currently set to be published in the spring of 2020.
So, time to update this site to incorporate more than [just] Portia and her friends. Stand by for some pretty wicked introductions to Pickles and her fellowship of marvellous mammals.
It’s Word on the Street time again, and I will be in my usual spot – hosting a bunch of awesome YA authors in the TEEN SPIRIT stage!
Check out the sched here: http://thewordonthestreet.ca/toronto/event-stage/teen-spirit/
Bring your friends, get your books signed, or complete your collection of Portia Adams books!
Come on down to Queen Books next Sunday, kids, and we’ll start your very own mystery! 914 Queen St E!
I finally had a moment to step back into Portia’s world, and got to the point in Book 4 where a suspicious man just sped away in a gorgeous blue coupe. A little research to make sure that was actually a possibility in the 1930’s and voila! Feast your eyes on this little bit o’heaven:
Chrysler Imperial Custom Roadster 1933
Or this one:
or this one:
Willy’s passenger coupe 1931
My dear friend Alisha Sevigny is holding her second book launch tomorrow night, so if you’re in Toronto, come by and raise a glass!
It’s been quite a week, and I have to say, speaking to the students at the Emerge 2018 conference was super-fun. What an inspiring group of motivated humans! I can’t wait to see them strut their stuff out in the world!
I got the opportunity to present to a couple of wonderful Grade 5 classes in Markham this week. It really is one of my favourite things to do as an author, to get kids excited about reading and writing mysteries. Thanks again for having me Ms. Stam and Ms. Mirza!
There’s still time to get your orders in for signed paperback copies of the Portia Adams Adventures! Just email me at karmicangie at gmail.com!
Lesley Livingston, Elly Blake, Kristen Ciccarelli and me in the back!
Had a great time hosting the Young Adult panels at Word on the Street in Toronto, and meeting all the fans! Thanks so much for coming out!
I’m fortunate this summer to spend every week talking on-air about books, and if you’re outside of Canada, or you miss me in your regions, I will post the audio here.
Here I am chatting with Gill Deacon, the host of CBC’s Here and Now, about my favourite Talking Animal books:
