Door County Novel Is 2017 Book of the Year Finalist

The Chicago Writers Association has announced its finalists for its annual 2017 Book of the Year awards and author M.L. Collins’s novel, Out the Door! (Eckhartz Press) is a finalist in the Indie Fiction category. The winner will be announced in early December.

A satirical novel set in Door County, Out the Door! has been described as a story that’s a little about everything: geology, sex, politics, the environment, prairie voles, cheese curds, casinos, aphrodisiacs, sturgeon, trilobites, gulls, Hat Island, a bit of mystery and much more.

Reviewers on Amazon have called the novel “a delightful romp of a novel,” a “story packed with intrigue and madcap comedy”— with “characters well-developed and quirky.”
