Howdy! This just in. Just received the new blurb for my next book, BLACK EAGLE, from my publisher. The book, which is due out in May of 2009, is in production with my publisher. So since this is just in, I thought I might take a break this week from the survivalists lessons to do some unashamed promotion. Please bear with me. So without further ado, here’s a little of what’s going on in my writing life. First I thought we’d take a look at the book that I have out on the stands right now, THE LAST WARRIOR — and then have a look at the blurb for the book due out next year, BLACK EAGLE.
Many centuries ago, a village killed the children of the Thunder God. For their crime, the Creature bannished them to live a half existence in the land of mists, neither dead nor alive.”
In 1892, that warrior is Black Lion
There was only one way for Black Lion to melt the Thunder God’s anger; listen for a sacred white-man’s song — and sing it perfectly with the one who introduced him to it. He joins Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and travels to London, where he encounters the daughter of two opera singers — the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. However, Suzette Joselyn is already engaged to another man…
But the two are destined to meet again when Suzette shows up in America, pregnant and abandoned by her fiance. Reunited with Black Lion she finds it impossible to turn down his offer of marriage to save her child from life as a bastard. But she doesn’t realize that her brave new husband is consumed with a mission that may force him to choose between his people and the woman he loves…

A Warriors of the Iroquois Novel
Author of The Last Warrior
“Karen Kay’s passion for Native American lore shines through.”—Publishers Weekly
After Marisa Rathburn overhears her uncle’s plot to destroy a Dutch town for his own gain, she threatens to expose him—forcing her to run for her life. Braving the war outside rather than the more dangerous one at home, she accepts an invitation north to visit a friend.
Mesmerized by her beauty, a Mohawk warrior named Black Eagle volunteers to act as her eyes through the wild forests of New England—only he soon senses an unexpected danger, and that Marisa may not be all that she appears.
Caught in the crossfire of war, and with a deadly assassin hot on their trails, Marisa and Black Eagle discover that trusting each other is the only way to outrun the enemy—and that love may be the only way to survive.

Don’t forget that I’ll be blogging two weeks from now — Tuesday, as well, when I hope to continue Native American Survival Lessons. And lest we forget, contrary to popular TV shows, Native American Survival is a group activity. None survives alone. Even the lowest life forms depend on other life for their existence. To make it seem different is to make it all the more difficult for you to survive, and to survive well and flourish. Well, that’s it for now. Thank you for bearing with me.
I’d love to hear what you think of the new back blurb for BLACK EAGLE. I didn’t write it, but I think it’s good. What do you think?
So come on in and let’s chat, about this or other things, as well.
