Ron Thompson’s A Person of Letters, a satire on writing, publishing, love, obsession, and guilt, is available in print and eBook format. Follow the author on Twitter (@thompsron) or Facebook for direct updates and notice of future appearances and events.
In a touch of magical realism, A Person of Letters will launch it’s own world tour (without its author) in January 2016. “We anthropomorphize toys, cartoon ducks and rabbits, even Lego blocks,” Ron says. “Why not books?” “And so the novel A Person of Letters has morphed into the louche and sodden huckster APOL, which will do anything to grab a reader’s attention. The book has already been sighted in various locales in Canada, the U.S., and around the world. Ron will post about his creation’s travels and shenanigans on his blog – follow it here. Needless to say, he’s having fun with the project.
In March 2016, Ron will address the monthly meeting of the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa. His topic will be, “On Becoming a Writer: My Long and Winding Journey.”
Ron is currently working on a prequel to A Person of Letters. Poplar Lake is a tale of home town, family, and the secrets they keep.
