Celebrate Science Fiction at the 2014 Mississauga BookFest

This Saturday, October 18th, The Mississauga Central library is holding a Science fiction Spectacular Bookfest!

SF authors Rob Sawyer, Marie Bilodeau, RC Wilson, Tanya Huff will be doing presentations at the Auditorium.  Robert J. Sawyer recently received a Lifetime Achievement Aurora Award from the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association.

I will be onsite with fellow local authors, exposing (and selling) our works at the Atrium. All my 15 novels and 10 graphic novels will be there, in French and  English. Signed books are all in the 5$-10$ range.

Sunday Artist Studio is an independant publisher of YA and all age comics.

I’m proud of being a SF author. Below are a few of my recent titles from the Sunday Artist Studio imprint.
