Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It’s a sunny day here in northern Wyoming. We’ll be celebrating the driving of the snakes out of Ireland by making bison Irish stew and chocolate Guinness cake. It’s the first time we’ve made this cake, the recipe was forwarded by our friend, Charles Curley, so we may need the luck of the Irish to get it right. Fortunately it only requires one cup of Guinness, which means we can soothe our sorrows if it falls flat. THE DAWN COUNTRY, which was released on Tuesday, is getting wonderful on-line reviews, and we especially want to thank all the bloggers who have read the book. We know how much time it takes to read a book and provide a thoughtful review. We’re especially grateful to: www.nyjournalofbooks.com/review/dawn-country www.genregoroundreviews.blogspot.com/2011/01/dawn-country-w-michael-gear www.bythebookreviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/dawn-country-people-of-the-longhouse-novel http://bibliophilegirl.blogspot.com/2011/03/blog-tour-review-dawn-country http://www.daemonbooks.com/2011/03/16/the-dawn-country-by-kathleen-oneal-and-w-m-gear www.examiner.com/book-in-san-jose/review-the-dawn-country-by-kathleen-o-neal– And Jon Land, if you’re listening out there, we owe you beer for the rest of your life.
