A highlight of the year was the announcement that Rick Spilman’s novel “The Shantyman” was 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.
