I’m also happy to report that Buck has been getting some lovely reviews. Booklist said “…The quietness of nature and small-town life is wonderfully reflected in Willis’ patient and artful prose, and every hunting detail feels authentic, from the construction of deer blinds to the skinning of animals. An unusually sensitive and reflective boy-centric book.” More Snoopy dancing (never mind that I’m starting to get dizzy).
All of this fun is revving up because, in less than a week, Buck Fever will be making its debut. And, as part of its birthday celebration, I’m giving away copies of both Buck Fever and Dog Gone (Let’s not forget the dog just because the buck is in town, right?). Anyone who posts a comment on this blog or sends me an email at www.cynthiawillis.com will be given a chance for a book. Oh, and I should mention that there is a link to a book trailer for Buck Fever also on my site. The contest officially kicks off on October 27th, the day Buck Fever is released, but why not start the party early?
So, I’m breaking out the confetti and starting to blow up balloons.
