Just wanted to drop an announcement on you! My brother has published his first novella, TALES FROM INDIAN COUNTRY: THE APPLE, and I encourage you to check it out. He is a very talented writer with two of his screenplays having been produced (TWO INDIANS TALKING and JOHNNY TOOTALL). TWO INDIANS TALKING won the audience award for Best Canadian Feature at the Vancouver International Film Festival a couple of years ago. He also co-created and produced the Leo Award-winning TV show BACK IN THE DAY (airing on APTN in Canada and FNX in the United States).
From the Press Release:
Tales From Indian Country: The Apple
Seven Short stories throughout the life of an Indian man that's considered an 'Apple' to his reserve, red on the outside but white on the inside. These stories chronicle his attempt to be more accepted by his community by going on a vision quest, his time dating a spiritual person, the time he played poker with a dying racist man; and the time as a ten year old that he discovered residential schools. It's an overall story about a man that struggles with how he sees himself and how others do.
