Word must have spread about the keen eye and discerning taste of our Hummingbird Prize judge, the multiple award-winning Bob Thurber, because entries are coming in a steady stream. If you haven’t read anything by Bob, you don’t know what you’re missing! To prove the point, we’re glad to announce that Bob has discounted his novel Paperboy for the duration of the Hummingbird Contest. Yes, until June 15th, you can grab Bob’s ebook from Amazon for $4. (That’s half price!) Folks, this is a man that made the New Yorker‘s list of authors who could weave magic in 25 words. Imagine what Bob can do with a whole novel!
Whether or not you are submitting to the contest, you’ll want to pick up a copy of Paperboy. Once you’ve had a taste of Bob’s writing, you won’t be able to stop. Readers are immediately drawn to the narrator, a young boy whose dream is to be a paperboy, biking down a clean street where life is normal. Because what he wakes up to isn’t.
