Well here’s a fun little story just in time for the holidays (and yes, I’m mindful that this is not a place that people usually frequent for “fun little holiday stories,” but we think you’ll dig this one).
David McWane, frontman for long-running Boston-based band Big D & The Kids Table, has published his first novel. It’s called “Kringle: The Story of a Young Toymaker,” and it’s published under the moniker “D.P. McWane.” Here’s the official blurb about the book:
A young carpenter starts a new life in a small New England town where he makes toys for an unscrupulous boss. He meets a single mother and helps her sons’ gang, The Airlords, build “Buck Rogers spaceships” looking sleds to race. They expose the boss’s sham and on Dec. 24th he delivers toys to every child so they can “feel fortunate, even if it’s for just one day”. Along the way he earns the love of the single mother and sons.
“Kringle” is officially available for purchase today. You can order it in hardcover here or in soft cover here, and we’re told it’ll be available on Amazon in the near future. Pick it up, and stay tuned; we’ll try to pick Dave’s brain about it in the next week or so and report back!
