Dear friends, I’m thrilled to announce that ‘COAST: An Act Of Burial’ has been awarded the CBC Bookies Golden Beaver in the category ‘The Page-Turner Award for the Canadian Book You Couldn’t Put Down’. I am very privileged to be honored with this award, especially when up against other books of such outstanding caliber. Most importantly, I want to warmly thank everyone who voted for ‘C:AAOB’, in both the nominations and the finals. I am extremely grateful for your votes and I hope that my writing continues to please you.
It also gives me great pleasure to add my heartfelt congratulations to my good friend Wes Funk, whose book ‘Cherry Blossoms’ was given the Golden Beaver for ‘The Hot and Bothered Award for Steamiest Read’. I’m sure I speak for us both when I say that we are proud to represent the awesome province of Saskatchewan which is home to so many amazing writers. Both of us are also honored to stand for independent authors everywhere.
“Contra omnes dissident!”
Roger and out, X.
