As a Library Tech and an author, I’m still deciding what I think about Graphic novels. They get kids excited about books, but the little ones in my library want to take books that are inappropriate, just because they like looking at pictures. Even when the borrower has the appropriate age, they’re only reading about 60 words per page. Will it come to a point where kids will read ONLY graphic novels? Please take a couple of minutes to take my poll.
En tant que Technicienne en documentation et auteure, je suis toujours en train de réfléchir sur les bandes dessinées. Elles suscitent un amour des livres, mais mes petits usagers veulent prendre des livres qui ne sont pas appropriés, juste pour regarder les images. Même quand l’usager a l’âge approprié, il n’y a qu’un peu près 60 mots par page. Est-ce qu’on arrivera à un point où les jeunes ne liront plus QUE les bandes dessinées? Veuillez prendre deux minutes pour répondre à mon sondage.

I was recently invited by my bookstore here in Quebec City to have a one-hour book signing at the Quebec City International Book Fair. (20,000 visiters per day). Thank you La Maison Anglaise! I’ll let you know the exact date and time once they’re set by leaving a comment attached to this post.
In the meantime, please visit their web sites:
J’ai récemment été invitée par ma librairie ici à Québec au Salon internationale du livre de Québec pour faire une séance de signature d’une heure. (20,000 visiteurs par jour). Merci La Maison Anglaise!
Je vous tiendrai au courant de la date et l’heure exactes une fois qu’elles soient fixées en laissant un commentaire à cette affichage. Entretemps, je vous invite à visiter leurs sites web:
Michèle Ducasse is an up and coming actress, and one of my best friends. She has been very supportive of my writing career and personal life, and I hope to be as much support to her in her acting career.
She played in a television series called “Untamed Lands” which has finally reached post-production after 2 years.
The premier will be at the end of May, and we will finally take a road trip together to see it. I’m so excited! I’ll be able to say “I knew her back when.”
Here’s the link to her blog. Please check it out and subscribe to it.
I have been a Library Technician for longer than I care to admit. As a Library Tech, I have had the occasion to meet a couple of authors and be in the position of deciding if I order their books for my libraries or not. Some authors didn’t even have business cards, and no bookmarks or anything like that to give me a record of the information I would need to order their book(s), and I was not favourably impressed.
A couple of weeks ago, our head Librarian invited me to present “Don’t come here, Julie!” to my Library Tech colleagues, and I gladly accepted. However, I now realize that the shoe is on the other foot. I am now the author, selling my books to Libraries.
The last two weeks have been rough, and I didn’t see the time going by. My presentation is tomorrow, and I still need to print up some more business cards. As well, I have nothing to give them to remind them to include Julie in their big order. My apologies to the authors that I thought were disorganised. Here’s hoping that Bureau en Gros (Staples) can print up some bookmarks for me for tonight. Oops!
I will be reading an exerpt from the book, and will attempt to record the reading on my digital camera. If the memory card holds out, and it turns out to be the right format, I’ll post it on facebook and youtube. You’ll laugh at my Southern accent.
John has worked his magic and I now have a web site: www.pjoywebster.com!
There are still some final touches to be added, I need to add the French translation and there will always be a need to update, but the basics are there and I’m thrilled. Just admit it, John, you rock!!!
