The Shantyman – One of Kirkus’ Best Indie Books of the Year 2015

Shantymankirkus1sI am extremely pleased to announce that my novel “The Shantyman” has been selected as one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Indie Books for 2015.  From the review:

With eloquent accuracy, Spilman’s novel captures the life of a 19th-century sailor…. Spilman’s colorful, well-researched novel will enthrall both sailing enthusiasts and landlubbers.  A fabulously gripping sailor’s yarn.

    This is really big. Kirkus is one of the primary sources librarians use to select books for their collections. Congratulations.
