Howdy, y’all. I’m stepping away from the drafting cave to share some incredible news… Vengeance Road is getting a companion—Retribution Rails! In case that image doesn’t display properly, it says: Erin Bowman’s RETRIBUTION RAILS, a companion novel to VENGEANCE ROAD, set in 1887 Arizona and about a boy in possession of a mysterious gold coin who is forcibly recruited by a train-robbing gang interested in the piece, and about the aspiring female journalist who will either be his ticket to freedom—or a noose, again to Kate O’Sullivan at HMH, by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger. Yeehaw! I’m super excited to be working with Kate and the HMH gang again and I’m beyond thrilled to be writing another western.

It’s still set in Arizona (roughly... Read More
2015 was a crazy year for me. Baby Bowman changed just about every routine I’ve come to rely on, plus I had two books published. I learned a lot in 2015. I also stressed a lot… Recently I was chatting with author-bud Susan Dennard about new year’s resolutions resolutions. As writers, what did we want to focus on in 2016—what could (and should!) we be doing differently to help with stress, sanity, overall happiness, and so on… So in the spirit of the holidays, we decided to not only share our #WriterResolutions, but to ask you all to do the same! I’m sure there are resolutions I’m forgetting, and perhaps something you guys suggest will jog my memory. Or vice versa—maybe YOU can take inspiration from our #WriterResolutions. And then maybe we can all help each other stay true to our goals in the new year! Here are my #WriterResolutions for 2016: (Don’t forget to see Susan’s via her newsletter!) 1 — Strike a better work/family balance I’ve... Read More

Wednesday marks the two-months-til-pub date for Vengeance Road. TWO MONTHS! I can’t believe that this story is so close to being in the world. I’m so excited to share this book with y’all, and I want to give a little something to everyone who pre-orders a copy. And yes, I mean EVERYONE. (Well, at least while supplies last.) If you preorder Vengeance Road by August 31st, I’ll send you a swag pack including: » 1 Vengeance Road bookmark » 1 signed Vengeance Road bookplate » 2 Vengeance Road stickers (selection made at random, image may vary) Here’s a peek at the front and back of the bookmark, the various stickers designs, and the (unsigned) bookplate: PLEASE NOTE: I have different quantities of bookmarks, stickers, and bookplates, and they will only be available while supplies last. This means the sooner you preorder and fill out the form, the better chance you have of getting all three! (I’ll probably run out of bookplates and stickers long... Read More
