Tanya Nichols and Bill McEwen, co-authors of the newly released novel “Stinger,” will sign books Saturday 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Clovis Book Barn.

“Anyone who is watching the third season of ‘Goliath’ with Billy Bob Thornton on Amazon Prime will love ‘Stinger,’ “ — Bill McEwen
The novel, which is set in the central San Joaquin Valley, is a tale of revenge and swindles during the recent California drought.
“Anyone who is watching the third season of ‘Goliath’ with Billy Bob Thornton on Amazon Prime will love ‘Stinger,’ ” says McEwen, who is GV Wire’s news director.

Early Praise for the Novel

Early readers are giving it thumbs-up reviews.
“Stinger is taut and colorful, a tale well-told by Nichols and McEwen, both of whom know every corner of the Valley and every secret hidden there. The landscape and the characters who inhabit it come alive in these pages,” says Steve Yarbrough, the critically acclaimed author of 11 books, most recently the novel “The Unmade World.”
The publisher of “Stinger” is Mark Arax’s Fresno-based West of the West imprint. After reading the manuscript, he decided to publish the first edition as a high-quality hardback — taking a different path than many independent presses that opt for paperbacks.
“I’m proud to publish ‘Stinger.’ It’s not only a great read, but it says so much about our place — California, the San Joaquin Valley, Fresno,” says Arax, whose latest work “The Dreamt Land” is a Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle best-seller.
Novelist and poet Liza Wieland says that “Stinger” is a “lively, engaging, and deeply knowledgeable romp though business and family intrigue in the Central Valley. Both Nichols and McEwen are talented, accomplished writers on their own, but in Stinger, they make a great and seamless team.”

‘Stinger’ Is Available at Clovis Book Barn

“Stinger” launched Sept. 18 in a benefit for the Friends of the Fresno County Library at 2nd Space Theater in the Tower District.
Books are $25 and will be available at Saturday’s event. The Clovis Book Barn is at 640 Clovis Ave.
