March has been a good month for several Montana and Wyoming writers.

Wendy Parciak's first novel, Requiem for Locusts, received an Honor Book designation from the Montana Book Award Committee, as did David Allan Cates for Freeman Walker.

Kalispell author Carol Buchanan just won a Spur Award for her historical novel, God's Thunderbolt: The Vigilantes of Montana.

Craig Johnson, from Ucross, Wyoming, also won a Spur Award for Another Man's Moccasins, the fourth book in his Walt Longmire Series.

Congratulations all!
