Oh, hi there. How’ve you been? Us? Oh, you know, just on an extended hiatus, no big whoop. Did you miss us? Hopefully, there are still ears out there listening for our podcasts. We’re really sorry for the long delay, but, as they say, stuff happens. We won’t bore you with excuses. We’re just happy to finally have Old 55 up and ready for the listeners out there. We hope it will be worth the wait. This novel is certainly worth it.
Sorry that this podcast sounds like Tania is speaking in Massey Hall and Kirt is her guest on a call-in radio show. Much of the delay has involved trying to fix all of that. This is the final result, such as it is. Maybe it’ll be a new style that you dig. Who knows?
Much of the discussion at the end of the podcast is obviously lies. We did no such recap podcast in January and we did not announce our next book. We also didn’t get to do After Canada Reads 2018. Frankly, we’re not sure what’s happening with Write Reads at this point. We will be skyping with each other soon to discuss what’s next, though. We will let you know as soon as these things are decided. Whatever happens, we are always grateful for your support and encouragement.
