The Fishing Widow

The Fishing Widow

In September 2006, Ethan Lindgren and Colin Claybaugh, two fishermen aboard the seine boat F/V Fairweather are ordered to hook onto and board Revelation, a 58′ seine boat that is found drifting and lightless in a storm off the coast of Southeast Alaska.   They find the boat abandoned, the captain and crew have vanished completely out of the world.  But, they are not alone on Revelation that night, and what Ethan sees in the fo’c’sle of the abandoned fishing boat is so terrifying, not even Colin, his best friend, can pry the secret out of him….

In March 2010, Colin and Ethan, along with their crew,depart Port Saint Anne, Alaska aboard Colin’s seiner The Case in Point for the opening of the 2010 Sitka Herring Sac Roe Fishery.  What was aboard Revelation is following, now darker and more desperate.  As the combat fishing intensifies, rival crews try everything to put each other off their game.  As the events of March 2010 continue to unfold, the forgotten loss of  the Nantucket whaler The Covenant in 1835 and the massacre of Spanish priests in their mission on San Angelo Island three centuries earlier begin to present a real and terrifying threat….

There’s an old saying that goes … “The only difference between a Fairy Tale and a Fisherman’s Tale is this … a Fairy Tale begins ‘Once Upon a Time,’ while a Fisherman’s Tale begins “This ain’t no bullshit…”

Welcome to The Fishing Widow!

Happy Thanksgiving!  It’s nearly the end of November, and since I’ve reached the 50,000 word goal in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for my latest titled In Dark Places, I can finally turn my attention back to The Fishing Widow, which is through its final edits and ready for the entire world to see!  I’ll be working on query letters over the next few weeks and am hopeful that a publishing house somewhere will love this story as much as I do.  So far, so many decent reviews.  If you’re curious, follow the page link to the Prologue.  Enjoy!
