Congratulations, Doyle Suit!
At Coffee and Critique this morning, Doyle brought in copies of his recently released book, Baker Mountain, A Novel of Courage. Baker Mountain is a Cactus Country Book, published by High Hill Press.
Some time ago I received an advance reader's copy, so I got a sneak preview of the novel. I am proud to be one of the writers whose blurbs appear on the back cover of Baker's Mountain.
I was thrilled when Doyle gave me a signed copy as soon as I arrived at the meeting. My signed copy is a keeper!
Here is my back-cover blurb about Suit's YA historical fiction novel:
"Set during America's Great Depression, Baker Mountain by Doyle Suit harkens back to days of hard work and hard times. Through Suit's crisp and clear prose, vivid descriptions, and skillful painting of an era gone by, we learn the story of sixteen-year-old Gary Hill, whose life is turned upside down after the death of his mother. While Gary's father travels around the world in search of work, Gary moves in with his grandparents on their farm in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas. In the shadow of Baker Mountain, city-boy Gary learns about farming, hunting, horseback riding, bootlegging, and falling in love. Baker Mountain is an entertaining coming-of-age novel of historical fiction whose message about the importance of education, self-reliance, and courage still resonates today."
Later this week -- most likely on Friday -- I will be giving away my advance reader's copy of BAKER MOUNTAIN over on Donna's Book Pub. So pop on over to DPB on Friday to find out how you can win.
