High Hill Press Wins a Spur from Western Writers of America

Coffee and Critique co-founder Lou Turner is kicking up her red cowboy boots and shouting, "Yee Haw!"

Lou found out yesterday that she will be among those receiving Spur awards from the Western Writers of America at their awards ceremony in Sacramento, California, this coming June.

As publisher of High Hill Press and editor of Cactus Country III, Lou will receive a Spur because the short story "Cabin Fever," written by Brett Cogburn and appearing in Cactus Country III, won a Spur in the Best Short Fiction category.

Another work published by High Hill Press, McKendree Long's short story "Chouteau's Cross," was a finalist in the same category.

Congratulations to High Hill Press publishers Lou and Bryan Turner for their commitment to publishing stories and books in the Western genre and for their tireless dedication in championing Western writers.

It is exciting. Brett's story was terrific and I love that it was in Cactus Country. And Mike Long's story was also terrific and in Rough Country, which is our first hardcover.
