Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked Butcher Boy, and I thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Hi Staffpicks,
Yes it was lively. We all liked the book, some truly laugh out loud moments.
I can always send you my group's master list (50+ books) and my list from my group in YVR and let you know what was great and what bombed! I have learned a lot from being in book groups for 10 yrs. And 10 yrs is nothing to some!
So many good books and so little time!
PS: another really good memoir is Too Close to the Falls by Catherine Gildiner and she's a delight.
Good luck and all the best for a fantastic year in books!
Hi Staff Picks,
I loved Village of the Small Houses too. I chose it for my book group here in Ottawa some time ago and everyone loved it.
Cheers from an ex-Vancouverite! (Kerrisdale)
