Yellowhead Blues a finalist for the 2020 Whistler Independent Book Award!

1 Comment

I’m delighted to announce that the fifth novel in the Highway Mysteries series, Yellowhead Blues, has been selected as one of three finalists for the 2020 Whistler Independent Book Award in Fiction!

The fourth novel, Sundown on Top of the World, was a finalist for the 2016 Whistler Independent Book Award in Crime Fiction. Since then, there has only been a single fiction category, and it’s an honor to have Yellowhead Blues be selected from among novels of all genres of fiction. (Of course, I’m biased toward mysteries!)

The winners will be announced during the virtual Whistler Writers Festival, October 15–18. Get your tickets to attend the great lineup of online workshops and events on the Festival’s website. For those of you unfamiliar with Whistler, it’s the primary locale for Sea to Sky, the third Hunter Rayne novel, and is best known internationally as the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Meanwhile, I’m at work on the sixth novel in the series. It should be ready for release in the late spring or summer of 2021.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased or reviewed books in the Highway Mysteries series, and especially those who have taken the time to contact me to let me know how and why they’ve enjoyed reading about Hunter Rayne and his fellow travelers. I hope you are all keeping well during this stressful time.

Yellowhead Blues is available in both print and digital formats! 

Get your copy at your favorite online e-book or print book retailer, or ask your local bookstore to order (through Ingram ISBN 978-0-9940762-5-0).
