Sam Wiebe

award-winning writer of LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS and INVISIBLE DEAD

Toronto, Kobo Emerging Authors

July 9, 2015

7/9/2015: Just got back from Toronto for the 2015 Kobo Emerging Writer Awards. And I have some very good news...

Last of the Independents won in the Mystery category!

The books were shortlisted by a jury and then judged by Ian Hamilton, author of the Ava Lee series. I'm going to shamelessly retype Ian's comments: "a well-crafted homage to the age of crime noir combined with a thoroughly modern sensibility. Sam's characters were engaging and tightly drawn."

It's a tremendous honour, and the list of people who need to be thanked would be very long. If you've supported the book, your name should be on that list. I'll briefly thank everyone at Kobo for arranging this. Thank you, I'm honoured, and hopefully the next one will be even better!
