Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week

How do you know you're having a run of amazingly good luck? When Publishers Weekly chooses your debut novel for a ★ starred review from among tens of thousands of other new titles submitted for their consideration—and then decides to make your book its designated Pick of the Week:

Down East editor-in-chief Doiron takes a provocative look at the ties between fathers and sons, unconditional love, and Maine’s changing landscape in his outstanding debut....Equally a story of relationships and an outdoor adventure, this evocative thriller is sure to put Doiron on several 2010 must-read lists

I have been overwhelmed by the positive early reviews of The Poacher's Son. This experience is what most first-time authors dream about. I've worked hard, but I've also been tremendously fortunate.
