Buzz Bernard's newest book is making headlines! Here's an excerpt from Buzz's blog: 


There are no wolves in the southern Appalachians.  There probably haven’t been in over a century.
They do, however, make a guest appearance in my most recent novel, Blizzard.  In the book, I think I adequately explain their presence.  What’s more interesting, perhaps, is how the animals made their way into the story in the first place.
It started in Germany. 


Southeastern Writers Association vice president, Buzz Bernard, has won his second "Eppie." SUPERCELL is the winner of the 2015 EPIC eBook Award, Suspense/Thriller category.  Buzz's novel PLAGUE won in the same category last year.
