Merry Christmas to all from Northwestern Montana (USA)!
As the snow falls gently outside, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in these mountains lurking beyond our windows.
Some of you are receiving this Newsletter as a result of the current free (giveaway) promotion of BRIDGET'S STORY. Others have not yet received or read that novelette. If you belong to this second group, please follow the link here to download your free copy. A short read, but provides some background for the LONGSHOT SERIES. Either way, I hope you enjoy or have enjoyed it.
Hold on tight now, here comes our latest Cover Reveal!
This is the cover for the first book in a new series. The Thatchery (Monica Haynes) has again applied her considerable cover design talent and experience in bringing this forth. I couldn't be more delighted with the result of her fine efforts.
The Title: NORTH OF THE SUN, tells where the bulk of the story takes place, north of the Sun River in western Montana. It is a tale of the conflict to take over the lands of the Blackfeet Tribe and the Whiskey Trade which made that possible. The characters battle over lands, Buffalo hides, fair practices and against one another; some fight their own consciences. At times it is hard to imagine that anyone truly wins in the end. But such is the history of progress in the North American West of 1870.
You'll recognize a couple of the main characters, and a few peripheral ones. There are a few new players that populate the pages, one or two of whom might even survive to the end of the book. We'll notify you when NORTH OF THE SUN is available for order.
Thanks for your patience and patronage. We love our loyal fans and readers!
With best wishes for peace and prosperity in the New Year,
Keith R. Baker
