The Ontario Library Association SuperConference was so much fun this year, I met a lot of writers I've always wanted to meet and I got to chat with great librarians.Thanks to Jennifer Mook-Sang for the photo (one of the aforementioned authors I was happy to finally meet).
I signed copies of Myles and the Monster Outside for an hour at the Dundurn booth until we ran out, there was a lineup around the corner and not everyone got a book, unfortunately. But I did make sure everyone in line got a bookmark. I handed about 60 copies to eager librarians, thank you all! I hope you and your students enjoy it.

I was saddened, touched and thanked her for sharing that with me. When someone reaches out to tell you a story like that, you remember the real reason to keep writing.
Thanks OLA, for another great year.
