My life’s been busier than usual the past few months. First, since the beginning of March I’ve been in down at Rogers HQ in Toronto working as an editor at Canadian Business. It’s a pretty big change from daily print journalism and I’m still finding my way around the parking lot, but I’m excited about it. Two long-time Maclean’s folks are running the place, Steve Maich is the editor, and Lianne George is the deputy editor. If you like Maclean’s, you’re going to like CB. We have a great slate of writers over here and we’re going to be doing lots of fun and interesting stuff.

Second, my book is finally out. The full court media press starts this week, so you’ll probably be seeing and hearing more of me than you like. In order to keep the annoyance factor to a minimum, I’ve set up a website and blog for Authenticity-Hoax related stuff. I’ll be posting a lot of updates about media hits and stuff, but also some authenticity-watch items and maybe some monkey uprising happenings. If you don’t feel like checking that blog (or this one, for that matter), the contents of both will be spammed to my twitterfeed, @pottergold.

    What does an editor do, other than edit copy of course?

    And congratulations on the book, must be a huge relief to finally have it printed and released.

    • Thanks… it is a nice thing to have finished. As for editing, that's up there with Canadian bestseller lists in the ranks of things about which we don't speak.

  2. As a Maich fan I probably would love it Andrew, but I signed up for one of those $1 a month deals as a Maclean's subscriber in OCTOBER and have yet to see a single issue of CB.

    Good luck, you guys will need it.

  3. Congratulations on the book and the new gig. Did you need to move to Hogtown "HQ" though? In this day and age I thought y'all could be just about anywhere to put an issue together…

    • He wants to be able to hang out with Richard Florida more often.
