Maas-ive book hangover!

What an absolutely awesome time!!! 

I'm finally able to do a quick update re the Sarah J Maas signing that we (me and Aphonic Sarah) attended on May 21st at Indigo Sherway (Etobicoke, ON).

I don't think I will ever forget this. It's been an absolutely AMAZING experience - one I will definitely cherish.

What a weekend.

I'm just posting a quick post as I am wrapping up the Sarah J Maas signing at the Indigo at Sherway Gardens - Etobicoke, ON.

WHAT A WEEKEND! I'm still suffering from book mania hangover. It's been amazing.

I have a few ideas I am working on going forward with the blog - and I hope to implement these sooner than later.

See you on the flip side,

Dedication or insanity?

We have been out in line since 330am for a chance to meet Sarah J Maas. It's almost 6am and we have maybe 50 to 75 people in line. Absolutely fantastic...

Just a quick snippet.

Talk soon on the flipside

Update

Hey folks,

It's been a crazy long time since I last posted - and I've been crazily busy with work and getting things back into order.

Hope to be blogging again soon -- so far I've been reading:

Strange The Dreamer -  Laini Taylor
A Crown Of Wishes -  Roshani Chokshi
Defy The Stars - Claudia Gray

We all know April/May comes very crazy for book releases but we're trudging along slowly but surely :)

Happy World Autism Awareness Day!!!

New Year's Rezzy

 Dusting out the virtual cobwebs of my blog..


It's been way too long since I posted something to my blog - and I am WELL overdue...  The last remaining months of 2016 have been hectic and crazy work and personal life wise, and I am slowly readjusting to a normal schedule and lifestyle.

I hope to be a bit more active on the blog with YA issues and mental health / autism awareness / life as an Aspie as time goes. I've got a few things up my virtual sleeve so to say.

I guess one step at a time - I'm still relatively new at this blogging thing :-P

 See you on the flip side,

Speechless.

It's currently 3:09am and the President of the United States of America has been elected. I'm beyond speechless.  All I can offer are virtual hugs and a lending ear to any of my readers who require it. That I promise.

In a few short hours I am off to the hospital for an MRI due to constant jaw pain on my right side. Hopefully it is nothing serious. I vow to update as soon as I get results.

See you on the flip side,
Always and forever, The Baron.

Rollin' on down the highway!

I thought I'd drift off a bit from the book blogging for a session..

I've moved around a few times and finally realised what it finally feels to be in an area where I can proudly say I can set my feet and call "home".

Moving across New Brunswick first for University then for work turned out like an extension of moving well.. same old, same old.

I learned that I am not a huge city person, I never got adjusted well to Ottawa because it's too political and reminded me A LOT about Fredericton, NB (my university town.) 

Windsor, ON has its charms but I found it way too sleepy and boring for my taste.  It also did not help that I lived in a small community 45 minutes away and had to commute for work almost daily.  That really did not help for my social life.

Moving forward to Kitchener, ON, as soon as I settled here I felt that home town feel.  I'm close enough to the Toronto area without going overly crazy, my commute to work is pretty much a laugh - I am close to ALL amenities.  I really cannot complain on that end.

I've been here since April and I feel like I am home. I think it's one of those cities where I can lay some roots.  I'm meeting friends and having a great time growing my network in the autism community and in the book / authorship community and these are opportunities that I would have had a hard time to acquire living in a smaller market in New Brunswick.

Don't get me wrong, I'll never forget my roots and where I am from, but even going to this day - I still do not regret my actions and am thankful for the opportunity I am given.

Has anyone felt this way?
