Shameless plug: cover art and design by yours truly.
 
Atomic Fez Publishing is happy to announce that +Mark Leslie Lefebvre’s first long-form novel, titled I, Death, will be officially launched as part of When Words Collide in Calgary, Alberta. The “book social” will be held Saturday, August 9th, 2014, at three pm.

Mr. Leslie will be in attendance to read passages from the book (and different from those read during other festival reading events), as well for signing. Copies of the novel be available for purchase at the “book social”, as well as throughout WWC in the ‘Merchants’ Room’ thanks to an agreement with EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing and the brains behind the genre-​​house, Brian Hades.

Mr. Leslie is leading a fair bit in pre-​​festival workshop series, mostly in his role as Director of Self-​​Publishing & Author Relations at +Kobo Canada. He’s specifically doing “Marketing Best Practices” Thursday morning, followed by “Hybrid Publishing” in the afternoon. The two sessions promise to be an excellent opportunity for writers of all levels to get an insider’s perspective at the ever-​​shifting landscape of literary publishing, especially during this period; arguably the most anarchic time since Gutenberg made it possible to produce books of guaranteed quality in high volume at a tiny fraction of previous costs.

Space is limited for these two workshops (and may already be full, actually), so e-​​mail them to reserve your seat or add your name to a waiting list.

* Marketing Best Practices (9 AM – 12 PM; Thursday, August 7th)
— 3 hour session limited to 50 seats, and includes topics from pricing, to marketing strategies, to working with eRetailers and local bookstores
* Hybrid Publishing (1PM – 5PM; Thursday, August 7th)
—Traditional or Self Publishing? Choose both. Mark Leslie draws on his experience in the publishing industry to discuss the advantages of each method in this presentation limited to 50 seats

When Words Collide exists to provide an opportunity for the literary community, from readers to writers to publishers, to gather and share information and inspiration. With the belief that different genres have more in common than they have differences, the festival includes content for all types of literature including Mainstream, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, Mystery, Historical, Literary, and non-​​fiction.

WWC 2014 will be held at the Carriage House Inn, 9030 Macleod Trail South, Calgary, Alberta.

In addition to Mr. Leslie, Atomic Fez’s publisher +Ian Alexander Martin will be there; as well as Chris Rothe, the author of Dirk Danger Loves Life.

Join them in the celebration of reading and story-​​telling, won’t you?

What're you doing on May 23rd?
The next big show happened almost by accident. Last month an artist friend of mine dropped by with a bottle and suggested we paint something. A few hours later, I had 2 new watercolur pieces: a tre...

So here's how the show went:
So there I was one Friday night, wondering what to do with myself. And I thought, hmmm, how 'bout an art show? All I'd need is a few paintings, a lot of cool people, and a big room with booze, a po...
