New Release: LIGHT OF THE NORTHERN DANCERS by Robin Gainey

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 10.43.14 AMOn November 7th, Robin Gainey’s second novel, Light of the Northern Dancers, will be released with her publisher Untreed Reads. With a touch of wilderness poetry, a revelation in the grit and rawness of Wyoming Territory, and a heart-rending glimpse of the intimacy brought by the need for finding joy, peace and acceptance as well as survival, Gainey delivers another beautiful book to the WWW landscape.

Light of the Northern Dancers circles around two bright and strong women – the fiery Eden Rose and her equally vivacious best friend Maddie True – and the constant battle the women must overcome to save their children, their families and to find an even deeper well of strength within themselves in the light of tragedies that come in all shapes and sizes. The novel has already garnered many accolades and is optioned and currently in development for a television miniseries.

To pre-order in paperback, hardcover or ebook before November 7th, you can visit: or on iBooks.

Robin will also be at book signings in Washington, Idaho, Montana and California beginning November 8th. If any WWW members want to pop over, she’ll be speaking about the joys and trials to take a novel from written word to screenplay and beyond. In fact, one of the producers will attend the signing in Spokane on November 10th with Robin. If you’re around, stop by and say hi! Events link:

  1. Congratulations Robin on the book and the miniseries! I have to admit I’m a bit starstruck to see your endorsement from Tom Skerritt. (I was a Picket Fences addict.) Keep us posted!


  2. Looks like a fascinating story, Robin, and kudos to you for writing something that adapts well to the small screen too! I’m sad that you’re not doing any signings in Wyoming though. We have bookstores here…
