"I fell in love with every one of them. I didn't want the book to end—I wanted to go to dinner with them, or go dancing with the whole town down at the mill." ~Jackie

Welcome to Little Wing.

It’s a place like hundreds of others, but for four boyhood friends—all born and raised in this small Wisconsin town—it is home. One of them never left, still working the family farm, but the others felt the need to move on. One trades commodities, another took to the rodeo circuit. One of them hit it big as a rock star. And then there’s Beth, a woman who has meant something special in each of their lives.

When all of them are brought together for a wedding, Little Wing seems even smaller than before. Lifelong bonds remain strong, but there are stresses—among the friends, between husbands and wives. There will be heartbreak, but there will also be hope, healing, even heroism as these memorable people learn the true meaning of friendship and love.

Nickolas Butler's Shotgun Lovesongs is that rare work of fiction that evokes a specific time and place, yet movingly describes the universal human condition. It is, in short, a truly remarkable book—a novel that, once read, will never be forgotten.


Jackie says:
"I love debut authors because I want to hear the new voices and find the rock stars before they even play their first real gig. Which is why I am so excited about this book—Nickolas Butler is going to be one of those rock stars. 

This book is about a group of friends, ten or so years after they graduated from high school. There is literally a rock star in the bunch, as well as a famous rodeo guy who got hit by one too many bulls (and bottles), a married couple with small children and a big farm to worry about, and a wheeler-dealer commodities guy who is collapsing under the weight of his facade. They are closer than close, yet everyone has a secret side that the others don't know about.  All of them feel lonely in some way, and yet they know that they all can rely on the others. 

I fell in love with every one of them. I didn't want the book to endI wanted to go to dinner with them, or go dancing with the whole town down at the mill. But mostly, I want this new writer to keep writing. And I want you all to read this first one—I'm betting you'll be just as hungry as I am for more."
