Presented with Wordfest, Samantha Warwick will guide a conversation with author Bradley Somer about his new novel, Fishbowl. They will discuss the writing life and process, what it means to “build a platform,” marketing, agents, publishing, and book promotion—regional, national and international. Publication rights for Fishbowl have sold in over eighteen countries.
Bradley Somer has written a ton of short fiction, which has appeared in a plethora of literary journals, reviews and anthologies over the past eleven years. His stories show a bent for the off-kilter with a touch of the urban fantastic. Bradley’s debut novel, Imperfections, was published in Fall 2012 by Nightwood Editions. It earned a starred review from Quill & Quire magazine, won the 2013 CBC Bookie Award for debut author of the year and was one of the Canadian Bookseller’s Top 8 Picks for 2012.
