Author CJ Box will be at Sheridan Stationary this Saturday to sign his latest book: Back of Beyond. The book follows an alcoholic cop, “Cody Hoyt”, who's sponsor is killed in an alleged suicidal cabin fire in Montana. Box talked about his book during Monday morning's Public Pulse.
This book is not one of Box's collection of Joe Pickett novels. Those stories follow a Wyoming Game Warden in his adventures in the Big Horn Mountains, but instead this book is a standalone, Box says. The process of writing a book away from his usual series, while it can be a challenge, is something that he enjoys.
He added that standalone books can bring readers into the Pickett series because readers are sometimes hesitant to enter a lengthy 12-book series unless they read and end up liking a type of writing.
Box will be at Sheridan Stationary Books and Gallery at 1 pm this Saturday.
