Save the date for 7pm Thursday May 16 at the newly-established Geeks Public House located at 288 Duckworth Street in historic St. John’s, Newfoundland. That’s where we’ll be having the book launch for The Starving, the newest gem in the crown of excellent Newfoundland-written literature by fresh new author Jon Dobbin.
The Starving tells the western-horror fusion story of Bill Weston, a man from and of the old west, on the hunt for a man named Faraway Sue. That plan changes in Colorado, where Weston comes up against an evil that he can’t explain away by men being the way men are. In Colorado he finds something stranger, something from myth and legend, that if he doesn’t watch out will change him completely.
The Starving comes from talented new author Jon Dobbin, an award-winning author who has been making a steady splash in the Newfoundland genre writing scene for the past three years. He has had multiple stories in each of Chillers from the Rock and Dystopia from the Rock, along with Kit Sora: The Artobiography. His work has awarded him first place in the 2017 48-Hour Novel Writing Contest alongside Writer’s Alliance President Kelley Power.
Ahead of the hype around Dobbin and his novel, helped by a spectacular cover by Jud Haynes, The Starving went Bestseller on Amazon on April 18 2019 from eBook preorders alone, a full month ahead of its scheduled release date,
