So, I am pleased to announce (drum-roll, please!) that Farewell and Goodbye is now available for Kindle purchase! This is the “bridge” story that connects A Great Wide Nowhere with The Slow Trail Home (due out Winter 2015-16).
A print edition is in the works as well. I will likely be selling that directly, instead of making it available through Amazon (mainly because it is more cost effective for everyone involved to do it that way).
From the description:
Fort Ellis, near Bozeman, Montana Territory . . .
Unlike most of the men he serves with, Lieutenant James Steele doesn’t consider Fort Ellis a hardship posting at all. His position in the cavalry is a good one. His son, Jonathan, is with him and maturing into a smart, steady, and responsible young man. And with the Blacks—Rob, Danica, and little Katja—he has found a place to belong and people who believe in him, accept him, and love him, despite his flaws and failings. He has everything he needs here.
For the first time in his life, he has a place that
his heart calls home.
But for generations, the Steeles have been known for several things: their uncanny eyesight; their charm, good nature, and loyalty; their bravery that defies common sense . . . and their inability to attain a happy ending. Just when he thought he might escape that fate, Jim finds himself facing the most painful choice he could imagine: to give up the very things that have made his life worth living, or risk destroying them all.
How much would you sacrifice for the sake
of those you love?
