The Fishing Widow eBook Release Jan. 6, 2013 at 1pm Alaska Time (In Craig, Alaska and on the web)

Recently we heard about a ComFishy novel written by Alaskan author Amy Marshall. Title: The Fishing Widow. And to top it all off, we heard about it before the official book launch which is happening this Sunday at 1pm (Alaska Time)! A clip describing the novel according to Amy: "The Fishing Widow follows two main characters, Ethan Lindgren and Colin Claybaugh, two fishermen based in the fictional Port Saint Anne, Alaska, and both of whom are involved in the Sitka herring sac roe fishery."

To get the skinny on how and where to join Amy and her friends for the launch (in person in Craig, Alaska or on the web) bookmark the Facebook Event and watch the wall for details. For a sneak peek at what's inside the book grok the prologue she has up on her site now. Excerpt of the prologue and other related media attached below.
