This October is such a busy month that I am lagging behing my posts.
So here is a placeholder post while I organize the mailing of my SF novels overseas, make frenetic preparations for my depart for the Utopiales festival, and put up new e-books, tinker with websites, recuperate from my Oakville half marathon race… and run to a scout camp this week-end!
So the next Signing table comics will have to wait a little!
What is trendy today… will have cooled down tomorrow! Don’t lose time chasing the latest fads!
As for the publishing delays, the new realities of the writing world have reduced them. Nevertheless, that advice stays: better write/draw what you love!
Running at daybreak on August 11, I had the occasion to observe a strange meteorological phenomenon.
I was running on a small side road, making 3 km circuits. The morning mist floated above the hay fields, a large open space. Then the sun rose, and I had the wonderful surprise! Continue reading

I can’t resist the call of the garden…
There’s a spring rivality between the two activities. So the next novel will wait a little!
If last december weather let me do some gardening, April and May have been cold, windy, rainy… as the recent Mississauga marathon showed.
Now, the call of spring was stronger!
Here are some stars of my June garden…
Clematis, Peonies, and a daisy growing at the foot of a brick wall!
This week has been the first that let me indulge in my two favorite leisures: gardening and…
I always find a lot of hidden treasures in those garage sales! This time I returned with a small wooden writing table that I’m already using.
So this was my first ever marathon, completed in a whopping 5h45min! (See my finish video and some pictures here, the exact personal time is 5h42:52)
I haven’t decided yet if I want run another full one. As you can see I got stiff knees for a few days post-race. But I was fairly better at the Sudbury French bookfair!
However, half-marathons are perfect for me: I completed the first part of the race in a fairly good 2h20!
The training (with a half-marathon group as there was no full training instructor available last January) took long hours from my writing and comics creation. I’d love to run a full 42,2 k under a more favorable weather!
My next race is this Sunday, a 15-km at the Bread and Honey Festival, of Streetsville.

To be continued…
A marathon is like two half-marathons, one after the other, right?
Well, my legs did not agree with this optimist assessment!
