"A Year of Surprises"

The Bangor Daily News is out today with a follow-up to the piece it did last January on "12 Mainers to Watch in 2012." It was an eventful year:

Doiron describes his 2012 as “a year of surprises.” His third novel in the Mike Bowditch series, “Bad Little Falls,” was released in August. In the fall, the Kindle edition of his debut, “The Poacher’s Son,” was released in the United Kingdom and reached No. 4 on the best-seller list of all Kindle books in November. “I even beat the ‘50 Shades of Grey’ juggernaut,” he proudly wrote in an email. Doiron also signed a new two-book deal. On Dec. 19, he finished work on his fourth novel, “Massacre Pond,” which he thinks might be his best. That book will be published in July 2013. And perhaps the biggest surprise: “I learned that the Pete Kilpatrick Band had been inspired by my novel to write a song titled ‘Trespasser,’ for its album ‘Heavy Fire,” Doiron wrote.

With the print publication of The Poacher's Son in the UK looming just a few weeks away, 2013 is shaping up to be another year to remember.
