A Special Guest Host for the Fourth of July!

Today’s guest host is Reid Lance Rosenthal, who is celebrating a milestone… two of his books were selected to be today’s Amazon Kindle Daily Deal!

You’ll recall Reid was the judge of the “Best First” contest, and even though he was in the midst of fighting to save his ranch from the Arapaho wildfires he still managed to fulfill his judging duty and pick the winners. He’s a man of his word even when faced with staggering challenges, and he’s a fantastic author too.

Take it away, Reid!

This sweeping multi-era series is compared by reviewers and authors to Lonesome Dove, Centennial, L’Amour (“with steam”) and called by some “the Gone With The Wind of the West.” The tale bursts with the action, romance and promise of historical America and the West.

The epic saga of Threads West begins in 1854 with the first of five, richly textured, complex generations of unforgettable, multicultural characters. The separate lives of these driven men and independent women from Europe and America are drawn to a common destiny that beckons seductively from the wild and remote flanks of the American West. Swept into the dangerous currents of the far-distant frontier by the mysterious rivers of fate, the power of the land and the American spirit, their journeys are turbulent quests intertwined with romance and adversity, passions and pathos, despair and triumph.

You will recognize the characters who live in these pages. They are you. They are us. This is not only their story. It is our story.

 

“Long ago, I fell madly in love with Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.… The splendor and adventure of  THREADS WEST has now surpassed my love of McMurtry’s Western saga…packed with adventure, romance, history, conflict, and emotion.… Far more romantic/sexy than McMurtry ever wrote…a real feel of how the West was won, by men AND women.… Five stars is not enough!”

~ Eve Paludan, Two-time #1 National bestseller, Writer’s Digest Book Club

 

“Fluent and strong…sensual, evocative and unforgettable…compared to McMurtry’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning Lonesome Dove and Michener’s Centennial.… Rosenthal’s epic masterpiece will rival even some of Louis L’Amour’s best loved work.”

Blog Posts and Contests Galore!

Many  fellow writers agreed to help spread the word about my release, and I’ve got a lot of blog posts lined up for this week. I’ll post them here as they go live. Right now there’s only one, but by the end of the week they’ll be many more 😀

Rose Gordon: In this post you’ll learn how talking too much in 9th Grade English led to an interesting discovery.

Rachel Van Dyken: How a Road Trip in a Crowded Hyundai Inspired My First Novel. (There’s a contest with this post!)

Angie Eads is featuring an excerpt where Jake (the rugged trail guide) and Kate (the prim society woman) first meet and immediately clash over what’s important enough to bring along. Hint, Kate wants china and dresses, Jake wants tools and spare wagon parts.

Given that Along the Way Home is set on the 1843 Oregon Trail, I’m doing several giveaways of an Oregon Trail themed prize package on several of my guest posts this week. All you’ll need to do is leave a comment and you’re entered to win!

So, what are you doing this week? Anything exciting?
