BLACK EAGLE — New Release and Free Give-Away

bannerHowdy to another Tuesday!

Sometimes I wish I had a way to play trumpets on the blog because today is the release day of BLACK EAGLE.  Yea!  (Pretend you hear music with trumpets.)  Today BLACK EAGLE is released in both ebook and Tradepaper format.  Also today, I’m giving away a copy of the ebook BLACK EAGLE to some lucky winner and a copy of the Tradepaper of BLACK EAGLE to another lucky winner.  All you have to do is leave a comment, but please see the rules below (in my bio) for the rules that govern the drawing.

A couple of words about the drawing — these are also covered in the rules that govern the drawings here at Petticoats and Pistols.  You must be 18 or older to enter. The drawing applies only to US residents and is void where prohibited.  Please remember that in order to win, if you are the winner, you will not know it unless you check back tomorrow evening to see who are the winners.  This is important, because we don’t contact the winners at Petticoats and Pistols — so please, please check back tomorrow.  It breaks my heart to draw a name and then never hear from the person.  Instructions will be given when I announce the winner tomorrow on how to claim your prize.  You must contact me, okay?  So please do check back tomorrow evening.











Since the book is just out, I thought I’d leave you with a bit of an excerpt.  This excerpt is from the beginning of the book.

  1. This books sounds great Karen. Yours always do. I have always loved the Indian type stories since even those in Canada I guess could be correctly termed Native American too. I can then just say I love the Native American genre and include all different tribes and peoples in history. Black Eagle will be at the top of my To Be Bought pile. Thanks for keeping this genre alive for us.

    1. Hi Elaine!

      Thank you so much for your post. It’s interesting, isn’t it that the genre isn’t as big as it used to be. These things go in circles, and so I do believe that we’re going to see an upswing in this kind of story very soon. : )

  2. This sounds like a great book! I’d love to win a copy. I love the cover. I hear the trumpets! Congratulations on another book. Love your books!

  18. Congratulations on your new release! Aren’t you clever posting this book the day before Thanksgiving. As you have told me I have been lucky with you books so count me out and give someone else a better chance. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I seldom say this but stop writing and enjoy the day!

    1. Hi Whitney!

      You post made me smile. : ) Stop writing? Goodness, I thought holidays were meant to be there so you could write more than usual. : ) Who would’ve thought…

  19. I would like to read Marisa and Black Eagle’s love story! Marisa’s uncle sounds like a horrible human being. I hope Sarah and Marisa can come up with a plan to figure out the name of the town so that they help the Dutch people and stop her uncle’s plans.

    As I don’t own an e-reader I would love to have a chance to win the print copy of your book.
