Life After Moving

You may have noticed that I have a new website design. I haven’t officially announced the new site as I have been absolutely crazed with moving from Toronto back to British Columbia and it still needs some tweaking. I am not going to go into the details of how insane this move was but if any of you have seen American Horror Story: Asylum, well, then you have a good idea of where my head was at this past summer. Not only did we move across the country at the height of moving season, not only was I in the middle of edits on the new book, not only did my wife have a movie to shoot and a book tour to do, but we also had non-stop houseguests for the past three months.

Now, you might be saying to yourself, “Don, come on, non-stop houseguests for three months? Aren’t you exaggerating just a little bit?” And to that I would say, “No. I am not.”

We love having guests, don’t get me wrong. But when you are literally dropping one person off at the airport in the morning only to pick two more up at the airport that very afternoon you know that you have overbooked your summer. To add to the stress, our furniture and bazillion boxes arrived a week late and so we only had a day and a half to unpack before our FOURTH set of guests arrived.

Of course, I know we are lucky and blessed to even own furniture and everything inside those bazillion boxes. Don’t get me wrong, I count my blessings every day. It’s just these days I am counting them a little more, shall we say, wearily.

The good news is that we are all moved in and the guests are all moved out and I can start writing a new book soon. My fourth novel, Dan Versus Nature will be out in the spring and I am just waiting for the go ahead from my publisher to show you the cover and the book trailer. I received the Advance Reader Copies in the mail last week and I have to say, I’m really excited about this one.

That’s all for now.

Well, except for this…
