March Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up

March Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveaway

The giveaway for Crater XV ends at midnight tonight!!  Hurry and Enter!  Find the link below.

I'm a little late in saying goodbye to March.  It has been a busy month for me with a teacher/student trip to NYC and the end of the 3rd quarter and grades due all at the same time.  So I decided to put off this post for a week and finish my book reviews and other things I needed to do.

Now March is officially over for me so please join me in saying adieu to March's author in the spotlight, Kevin Cannon.

If you would like to win a copy of Kevin's graphic novel, Crater XV please enter here:  Crater XV Giveaway

Please read my book review of Far Arden.  Far Arden is a page turning, karate kicking, stomach punching, thought provoking, kick ass graphic novel that will keep you guessing.  There are plenty of surprises thrown in that will make you laugh and pull your heart strings. Far Arden is skillfully drawn in black and white with intricate detail.  Kevin is a well known cartoonist and cartographer and is artwork is drawn with heart and humor and will keep the reader coming back for more.

Far Arden Book Review

Please read my book review of Crater XV.  Crater XV picks up right where Far Arden left off.  Cannon has created a lovable main character in Army Shanks.  He is a super hero, a savior of girls and women, a friend to the orphans, he risks life and limb to fight for what he believes in, he is like no other, and most importantly, he is fun to read about and follow on his misadventures.  You're in for a wild ride to the moon and back or at least to Crater XV and back.

Check out this awesome Guest Post by Kevin.  It is definitely the best guest post ever written for BookSnob in my opinion.  It is a definite must read, especially if you are interested in graphic novels or comics.

Kevin Cannon Author Interview

It has been my pleasure to work with Kevin Cannon this month and I would like to thank him for being the March Minnesota Author in the Spotlight.  I met Kevin at the Twin Cities Book Festival and admire his work as a cartoonist and I am so glad I was able to feature two of books here on Book Snob.  He has written a lot of books and comics as well as creates maps and so much more.  You need to seriously check out his website and read his books.
