Blogtour: As Big As The Sky by Amy Aislin

Thank you for hosting me today on my blog tour for my newest novella, As Big As the Sky, my second book from MLR Press.

In As Big As the Sky, the MCs, Bo and Sam, both have their own hobbies. Bo reads, and Sam gardens. So I thought I’d talk a little bit today about some of my own hobbies.

Reading: So, yeah, this is a pretty obvious one, so I’ll be brief. I love to read. I probably read about three books a week on average. #NoRegrets

Photography: Taking pictures, photography courses, browsing through coffee table books. The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto hosts the “Wildlife Photographer of the Year” exhibit ever winter and it’s one of my favourite things to do in the winter. My dad and I go every year and we ooh and ahh over the amazing photographs. Some of these photographers wait hours and sometimes days for the perfect photo. I don’t have that much patience! If you want to see some of the images I’ve taken, they’re available on my website.

Travelling: Can traveling be considered a hobby? Either way, I love to travel and I try and get in one trip a year, even if it’s something small, like visiting family a few hours away. This year I’ve actually done three! (Or I will have by the end of the year.) I visited friends in Montreal in April, spent a week house-sitting in the middle of nowhere in the Laurentians in Quebec in July, and will spend a week at Disney World in November. Last year it was a week in Vermont. The year before that was a two-week trip with my cousin to Budapest, Vienna, and Prague. If I could afford to travel more, I would!

Browsing bookstores: Sounds lame. It’s not.

Sam wants nothing to do with his irresponsible, sarcastic neighbor...or does he?
Sam McAuley is having a rough start to the summer: Not only is he being sued, but the new guy running the animal rehabilitation center next door has no idea what he’s doing and his runaway chickens constantly end up in Sam’s pristine yard. 

Everything is temporary for Bo Novak. For as long as he can remember, it’s been one town to the next, one school to the next, one job to the next. Even his current job—running his sister’s animal rehab center while she’s away on a four-month leave—is temporary. And he does know what he’s doing, thank you very much. Sure, things don’t always run smoothly, but the stick-in-the-mud next door could be a little nicer about it. 

One overheard conversation, an olive branch, and a baseball game might show these guys that being at odds isn’t really what they want, and that what they want might just be each other.
