Authors Win and Meredith Blevins were recently awarded the Wordcraft Circle of Native American Writers and Storytellers of the Year award for fiction in the thriller genre for their novel The Darkness Rolling.
The 2015 winners were selected from an open nomination process and awarded by a panel of Wordcraft Circle members, scholars, writers, and storytellers. Awardees will be honored on the evening of December 5th at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as part of the Returning the Gift gathering.
The Darkness Rolling, published by Forge Books in June 2015, follows Seaman Yazzie Goldman who returns to his family’s trading post in Monument Valley to find that not much — and everything — had changed in his reservation.

Its sequel, Stealing Fire, will release in June 2016.
