As the Kindle Scout campaign winds down for my latest novel, SAVAGE (you can still nominate it HERE ) I thought I should take a moment to do two things.
The first is to thank all those who have already nominated SAVAGE for publication. If it’s selected you get a free copy. I’m pulling for you!
The next thing I would like to do is let those who didn’t know already that Savage is a real place. It sits on the eastern ledge of Montana, far from the hustle and bustle of the more “civilized” world. It is a place as unique as its name. Just last year when the high school held a fundraising raffle do you want to know what the prize was? A hunting rifle! Savage continues to proudly continue its Old West ideals and I applaud them for it.
I first used it as a location in my earlier novel, THE IRISH COWBOY:
Three years later I am revisiting that same location with SAVAGE.
The two works share similar themes of isolation, mistakes of youth that are in conflict with the wisdom (and regret) of old age, the meaning of life, a fear of death, and a yearning to correct past wrongs – and I consider both novels to be very-very good representations of all those things.
Fingers crossed for SAVAGE. In the meantime, if you haven’t yet read THE IRISH COWBOY, set aside a bit of time to do so.
