Image via WikipediaI am so excited right now. Terry Fallis who wrote the book The Best Laid Plan just commented on my podcast blog. As you may remember, he couldn't find a publisher for his book so began to release it, a chapter at a time, as a podcast. Later his book won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour.
Now how did he know I wrote about him in my blog. I had no links to his name. The power of the internet I guess (the Read/Write Web). Terry wished me luck with my book--the one that will begin as a podcast of stories about Saskatoon.
That makes two published Canadian authors that I have heard from since I began this Web 2.0 journey. The other author was David Bouchard who wrote If You're Not From the Prairie. In that case, I sent him an email and a link to the Prairie Prose set of pictures I had created on Flickr to celebrate his poem and the prairies. He sent me a very nice email back.
Now, back to learning about the virtual library. It is a complex subject. My brain is hurting.
