Camas Author Celebrates Release of 10th Novel at Caps N’ Taps on May 9


Camas, WA — Award-winning Camas author and playwright Gary Corbin has announced the release of his tenth novel, Under the Banner of Valor, with launch events and book signings in venues around the greater Portland/Vancouver area.

Under the Banner of Valor is being released to bookstores on May 7, 2024, and is available online at Amazon.com, IndieBound, on the author’s web page (www.garycorbinwriting.com), and most online outlets.

About Under the Banner of Valor

In this exciting, character-driven police procedural by acclaimed author Gary Corbin, second-year policewoman Valorie Dawes and the WAVE Squad get called into action after Clayton’s family planning clinics receive ominous threats: Close the clinics, or else.

Val takes this threat personally, as her closest friend since childhood, Beth, discloses that she’s pregnant and is considering an abortion.

Can Val support her friend and keep her safe from the armed madman? Or will Beth’s stubborn recklessness thrust her into harm’s way? 

Not your typical police procedural, this fast-paced but character-driven mysterypits a young, tough, intuitive policewoman, Val Dawes, against a shadowy alliance of extremists whose chief weapons are violence and terror—and whose principal targets are pregnant women.

Advance readers describe it as “intense, emotional, and suspenseful.”


Book Launch and Signings: CapsN’Taps, Vintage Books, and more

To help promote the book, the author will kick off a series of release events and book signings. The first event is a launch party at Camas’ popular taproom, CapsN’Taps, on May 9, from 7-9 pm. Corbin will sell and sign books directly, and CapsN’Taps will offer $1 off any beer to customers who purchase a copy of the book at the event. There will also be surprise giveaways and other promos, and all ten of Corbin’s books will be available—signed by the author, of course.

“CapsN’Taps hosted the launch party for my very first novel, Lying in Judgment, which was a blast,” Corbin says. “Beer and books—what a great combination!”

On June 8, Corbin will read from the new novel and sign books at local favorite Vintage Books, 6613 E Mill Plain Blvd in Vancouver, at 2 pm. Copies of all ten books will be available for sale at the event.

“Vintage Books has been amazing at finding readers for my books, and they’re incredibly supportive of local authors,” Corbin says.  “Vintage was one of the first to put my books on its shelves. It’s a great local bookstore with great selection and terrific event programming. I can’t say enough good things about it.”

Other events include online author interviews and promotional pricing at various online outlets.

Full details of all events and promotions are available on the author’s website, garycorbinwriting.com.
