The reviews are starting to come in for The Clovis Dig, and they're great! Here's a couple samples:
“Fink has impressive command over the many swirling elements of her well-plotted novel, from the stresses of an agricultural business to the politics of academic power plays … The characterizations are strong, but the author has the ability to make the unique setting as important as the people. Archaeology and murder mix in this smart, picturesque novel that’s steeped in local culture.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“Given the sheer volume of literature produced each year, it can sometimes be hard to find true works of such striking excellence as this tiny gem of a book … It is effortless for the reader to be transported in this richly created literary world. One sees as the curtain slowly falls even more as the author spins a complex web of secrets and revelations that keep the audience engaged throughout. The book has some of the most creative and fully fleshed-out characters in modern fiction. The novel's narrative is both nuanced and breezy, and its visuals are compelling and revealing. In short, this is a wonderful and engaging literary experience that can't fail to bring one enjoyment.
—RECOMMENDED by the US Review — review by Robert Buccellato
I'm excited to say that The Clovis Dig is published! The paperback is coming in just a few days, and the eBook is now available on Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more. This book has been a long time coming. It's inspired by a true archaeological dig in East Wenatchee, Washington, and I was fortunate to tour the project. I was instantly smitten. I began collecting newspaper and magazine articles, and started the first draft in the late 1990's. Life intervened, and I put the novel away in the proverbial drawer until years later, when I signed a three-book contract with Evolved Publishing. I grew to love the cast of characters in this book, and I still think of them often—tough orchardist Claire Courtney, rookie archaeologist Joe Running, sophisticated archaeologist Spencer Grant, orchard manager Carlos Barbosa, Colville tribal attorney Shawna Ross and her savvy grandfather, Sam Moses, a tribal leader. I enjoyed writing about them all. I hope you like it! And if you do, I invite you to rate it on Amazon, Goodreads, Bookbub, or wherever you share books with fellow readers.
