The 2013 FICTIONista tour will take place in May 2o13. We are busy gathering together authors for the next fabulous installment of this reading series! Canadian independent publishers, to receive the call for author submissions, email email@example.com right away. The tour is open to authors with a new title published in the FALL 2012 or SPRING 2013 seasons. Submission deadline is September 28th!
We know how to pick great authors for the FICTIONistas, and it shows! We are thrilled that FICTIONista Rhea Tregebov is nominated for CBC’s Manitoba Reads this year, with her beautiful novel The Knife Sharpener’s Bell.
Like Angie’s vote (see yesterday’s post for details) this is one where you can go nuts and vote once PER DAY if the mood takes you!
Public voting is open until August 12th and you may vote once per day. (If you leave a comment when you vote, you’ll also be entered into a prize draw for McNally Robinson gift certificates, passes to THIN AIR, the Winnipeg International Writers’ Festival, and more.) The four books with the most votes will then go forward to a debate-to-the-death on September 21st as part of the launch of THIN AIR 2012. After that, public voting reopens for a mad scramble of two days, before the winner is announced on September 23rd. Keep your eyes on CBC Manitoba Scene’s website as the competition progresses…and vote, vote, vote!
