Surviving Bear Island hits the shelves today in independent bookstores and libraries. It’s also available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
To celebrate the release of my debut novel I am going to giveaway TEN, shiny copies!!! Even you already have a copy you are free to enter. Maybe you want to give one to a friend or to a school in your area, or to some other organization that works with kids.
Surviving Bear Island is a 2015 Junior Library Guild Selection.
Here are snippets of the reviews coming in from the media thus far:
Kirkus: “a terrific thrill on the page.”
Juneau Empire: “Surviving Bear Island is an exciting book outdoors-minded boys and girls both will enjoy….It’s fast paced enough to keep reluctant readers’ attention, but it also avoids oversimplification while communicating real-life dilemmas in understandable ways .”
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: “Surviving Bear Island is a heart-pounding adventure that both kids and adults will enjoy…It follows its hero through a brilliant coming-of-age the likes of which are unlikely to be found anywhere outside Alaska.”
Here’s how to enter the contest: Leave a comment below to be entered once.

Don’t forget to leave your email address if it is not readily available when I click on your name so I can contact you if you win.
The contest is open until midnight, Friday, March 27th Eastern Time.
I’ll announce the winners by Tuesday, March 31st at the latest. They will be chosen by a random number generator.
Finally, please ask your local libraries and bookstores to carry Surviving Bear Island. Word of mouth is still the best way for books to be discovered by people who love them.
Thanks for stopping by!
