Hugely honored for Fallen Land to be selected as one of four finalists for the 2017 Southern Book Prize in the Literary category. Congratulations to Julia Franks, whose novel Over the Plain Houses won the prize!
Huge thanks to the Georgia Center for the Book for selecting The River of Kings as one of the 2017 Books All Georgians Should Read. In some ways, this book is my love poem to the state of my birth, childhood, and formative years. I’m so grateful for the book to make this list.
Also, Fallen Land made the 2016 list!

The French publisher of Fallen Land, Editions Autrement, recently unveiled the cover art for the French of the book, which has been re-titled La Poudre et La Cendre, or Powder and Ashes. This title has more resonance in French, and I love it, as well as the new artwork. This edition is coming in February. I hope that French readers enjoy it, as one of the main storylines in the next novel, The River of Kings, follows French artist Jacques Le Moyne, the first European artist to capture the flora, fauna, and natives in the New World.
Steph Post, author of The Hunter, the Hunted and the Thief (2012) and A Tree Born Crooked (2014, Pandamoon Publishing), was kind enough to interview me about In the Season of Blood and Gold. Steph is one of my favorite bloggers, and she asked some really great questions. We discuss Daniel Woodrell and the “country noir” genre, violence in my work, and how I went about ordering the stories for the collection–among other things. Give it a read if you get a chance, and be sure to keep an eye out for Steph’s new novel, A Tree Born Crooked, coming out this October.
