Eagle Talons, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book One, has been chosen as a 2015 Will Rogers Medallion Award finalist. According to the award organization’s website, “Will Rogers was a respected writer and cowboy entertainer whose work embodied and demonstrated the traditions and values of the American cowboy. The Will Rogers Medallion Award was originally created to recognize quality works of cowboy poetry that honored the Will Rogers heritage, but has expanded to include other works of Western literature and film.”
Eagle Talons has been named a Will Rogers Medallion Award finalist, along with four other books, for the 2015 Western Fiction for Younger Readers category. The names of the finalists and their books in all categories are available at this link: http://www.willrogersmedallionaward.net/#!2014-winners-finalists/c20t4 .
The 2015 Award Ceremony will be held Saturday, October 24, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. in The Cattleman’s Steak House at the Ft. Worth Stock Yards in Fort Worth, Texas. Barry Corbin, noted western actor, will serve as the Award Ceremony Emcee.
Prior to the award ceremony, there will be a book signing between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, in the Hulen Shopping Center, 4801 Overton Ridge Blvd., in Fort Worth. I am making plans to participate in both.
