FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association (UPPAA) presents a new publication called the U.P. Reader. This will be an annual anthology that will feature the collected works of the best of the authors of the Upper Peninsula.
“The U.P. Reader is something I hope will put Upper Peninsula authors in touch with the readers to expand their exposure to a much greater and more effective level,” commented Committee Chair, Mikel B. Classen.
This collection will be published by the UPPAA and will showcase the multitude of talent within the membership of the organization. The U.P. Reader will average 45 – 50K words and will include all genres of writing including non-fiction and poetry. Artwork and photography pertaining to submissions are encouraged.
The U.P. Reader will be available to book sellers as well as authors for sale and promotion. This will allow the members an opportunity to participate in a project that will not only showcase their talents as writers but also to get the finished product in front of readers so they can discover the U.P. authors that interest them no matter what their reading preference.
Submissions will be juried by a panel and those chosen will appear in the U.P. Reader. Authors chosen to be published in the anthology will see their submission published along with an author’s bio to steer readers to more work by that author.
“This is a publication about discovery. Finding new favorites and maybe rediscovering some old ones too. I think it is underestimated how many really talented writers we have living right here in the U.P. and the Reader will be the place to find them.” said Mikel Classen.
Tyler Tichelaar, President of UPPAA, adds, “A collection of short stories, poetry, and essays will allow readers to enjoy a hodge-podge of U.P. literature from many different voices and will offer numerous visions and definitions of what it means to live here. The U.P. can be many different things to many different people and such a collection will help make that clear.”
Proceeds from the U.P. Reader will be used to support operating costs of the UPPAA and its many events to educate its members about writing and publishing and to get U.P. literature into the hands of potential readers.

What will Seamus do this time?
Financial crimes investigator Seamus McCree has wife problems, and Lizzie’s not even his wife anymore. Her current husband disappeared on a business trip to Savannah. Was he kidnapped? Dispatched by his hedge fund partners? Or did he run off with another woman? Police assume he’s AWOL, and Lizzie turns to Seamus for help.
Seamus has no desire to be sucked into Lizzie’s drama again, but her angst is also affecting their son, Paddy. Seamus agrees to help discover the truth, a quest that soon involves the entire extended family. Long buried secrets surface and each member must confront the question, “How far can you trust your family?”
Equal parts road trip, who done what, and domestic thriller, book four in the Seamus McCree series takes psychological suspense to a new level. Seamus McCree fans and newcomers alike will delight in this fast-paced novel that leaves no one in the family unchanged and keeps you guessing until the very end.
What Readers Say …
James M. Jackson has once again proven himself a skilled storyteller with this highly entertaining page turner that takes the reader into the heart and soul of Seamus McCree’s often dysfunctional family. Doubtful Relations is a rollercoaster ride of missing persons, drug cartels, crime lords, shady stock market dealings, car crashes and shoot-em-ups that left me breathless—and not quite knowing who to trust—until the very end.
~ Annette Dashofy, USA Today bestselling author of the two-time Agatha nominated Zoe Chambers mysteries.
