Patriot War along the Canada-Michigan BorderShaun McLaughlin will provide a sneak peak of his latest novel and will launch his new book The Patriot War Along the Michigan-Canada Border, on October 9, in the backroom of the Barley Mow Pub between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.. The launch in collaboration with Mill Street Books is a companion to Shaun’s first book The Patriot War Along the New York-Canada Border. The Patriot War Along the Michigan-Canada Border is published by History Press, based in North Carolina.

With a strong biographical slant, both books describe battles, court cases, executions and great escapes in a style that is more journalistic than academic. Readers described the first installment as easy to read and informative: a few called it a “page-turner.”

Shaun’s second novel will follow on his award winning first novel  Counter Currents, which recently won the 2013 silver medal for Historical Literature Fiction in by Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Awards.
