Three Awesome Things To End The Year

There’s been lots of good news during the last week round Thunder Road Way. As excited as I am to get rolling with 2016’s projects, it’s still sweet to end this year with a high note. Or in this case: three of them.

Too Far Gone got a nod in the Winnipeg Free Press as one of their best books of 2015!

I even had my cover on the front page alongside Wab Kinew’s The Reason You Walk and Helen Macdonald’s H is for Hawk.

Here’s the blurb. Thanks, Chris Rutkowski, for reading.

The finale of the Thunder Road Trilogy also made McNally Robinson’s Manitoba Bestsellers of 2015 list, coming in at #3 in the fiction category. I’m very proud to be on that list with some excellent writers. Congratulations on a good year, everyone.

Finally, I sold a new short story. More on that one later after all the Is and Ts are dotted and crossed, but I think you’ll like it.

“While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks” A Thunder Road Holiday Story

I posted this story last year as a holiday gift for my readers. I’m reposting today with the promise of a new Thunder Road holiday story tomorrow.

My readers have been very good to me. Some of you Thunder Road fans have had images from my work tattooed on your bodies, some of you have taken my work and made art of your own (Like Kevin Madison’s illustration below). You’ve also emailed or tweeted or messaged me to say you’ve enjoyed the stories I have to tell. This has meant the world to me.

So I hope you’ll enjoy “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks” a second time.

I considered calling it “Merry Christmas, I Don’t Want to Fight” but decided to go with something more traditional. I hope you’ll enjoy “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks” with my compliments.
