Celebrating Janice Horton’s launch!

Things are hopping everywhere this week! Today we have fireworks, corks popping, the crowd going crazy  shouting *Janice, Janice* – I’m helping friend and fellow author Janice Horton celebrate the launch of her latest novel Reaching For The Stars all the way across the pond in the U.K.  Hellooooo over there Janice … I can feel all the excitement and frenzy of activity!

Some of us are sharing photos of where we might rather be today (if we can’t be in Janice’s party room, that is!), as Janice explains here :

What’s it all about…?
In my new novel – ‘Reaching for the Stars’ – the main character Chef Finn McDuff feels he’s had enough of all the food campaigns, the TV cookery shows, the constant frenzy surrounding his private life and disappears into a self-imposed exile for a while. Hence the theme of this launch day extravaganza is ‘Wish I Was Here…’
Reaching for the Stars is now available on Amazon.UK or Amazon.Com for Kindle at the special launch price of just 95p or $1.40  Order your copy now!
Here’s where I would rather be todayWHISTLER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – crisscrossing the valley on the spectacular Peak-To-Peak gondola and cruising the AHHHH-some slopes of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.
Alrighty then. Now that I’ve indulged my little fantasy, it’s back to Christmas shopping and gift-wrapping in spring-like Toronto. So far it’s looking like a green Christmas here. If you could dash off somewhere today, where would it be?

  1. Wow – magnificent but cold – but there is nowhere like Canada for that kind of a backdrop! I have cousins and an aunt and uncle in Canada and have been invited over (they came to us in Scotland this year) so maybe next year or some time soon I might get to see your ‘Wish I Was Here…’ for myself Patricia. These are truly inspiring images!
    Love, Janice xx

  2. Congrats Janice – that’s amazing and here’s to your success! Thanks for letting us know Patricia.
    Well now, I would love to come see BC and I’d love to do some skiing but I think my preferred place to “dash off” to would be the Dominican Republic and an all-inclusive resort for about 6 months. LOL!

  3. Rugged, dramatic and beautiful.Pretty spring-like here a few hundred miles to the east of you, Patricia, here in Brockville, too.

  4. where I’d rather be today? white sandy beaches, SUNSHINE and clear blue waters…..=)

  5. I’d like to be in London or NYC window shopping and taking in the holiday scene with my husband and friends.

    Your pics make me want to strap on skiis and I haven’t skied in over twenty years.

    Janice, love the premise of the book! Now that I’ve got a Kindle, I’ll check it out! Thanks for the heads up.

  6. It looks absolutely stunning!

I love hearing from you ~ thanks for stopping by
