“Hidden Tribe”

Sasquatch–they live peacefully in the forests, and woodlands. They want little, or nothing, to do with humans, and our civilization. As a whole, sasquatch are tranquil, quiet beings who live harmoniously with nature, and avoid us.

But what happens when humans refuse to return the favor?

Researcher Alexia Hollander is about to find out. When she ventures into the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, seeking evidence of the elusive species, things quickly get out of hand. Another researcher deliberately gets in Alexia’s way. Campers, and hunters bumble in, adding their own disruptive presence to the quiet work that Alexia wants to perform.

With their home territory invaded by humans, a mated pair of sasquatch keep the intruders under close surveillance. They aren’t happy about the presence of the trespassers, and want them gone. Just how far will these normally restrained beings go to protect their family, and themselves? Alexia, and her unwanted companions are about to find out!

Down

Tomorrow – Friday, May 27th – my website might be down briefly for some server maintenance. If you visit, and find that’s the case, please be patient, and visit again later. The downtime isn’t expected to take long. But things happen.

Still Working On It

LinkedIn_Logo

For those of you waiting to hear back to me via LinkedIn, I’ve still been unable to get into my account at that site. I’ve no idea what’s going on. A while back I did a series of maintenance scans on my laptop. Since then I haven’t been able to log into my LinkedIn account. This laptop has never liked Yahoo! for some reason, and freezes when I go to any part of that site. I’ve never had a problem with LinkedIn, though, until those scans. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up on LinkedIn soon.

New “Gauntlet” Trailer

Gauntlet Cover

As I posted late last week, I’m had new book trailers made for my first three novels – “Winter’s Rite“, “Well Wishes“, and “Gauntlet“. The previously existing trailers used covers for the books which were designed by a publisher I’m no longer with. As the original, self-published editions of these three books are still available, I’m having the new trailers made, using those covers.

Check out the new “Gauntlet” trailer here!

“Gauntlet”

After stopping a robbery in progress, Elliott Cronholm is approached by someone wishing help him become a costumed vigilante crime-fighter. After refusing, his fiancée is attacked in their home by a stalker. In the wake of the attack, Elliott accepts the role he had been asked to play. While still learning the use of the costume and weapons he has been given, Elliott must track down and stop the first man put on the streets of the city by the same woman – a man with his own warped moral code who relishes killing the criminals he fights, a man who wishes to kill Elliott Cronholm as well, upon learning of Elliott’s new role.

1st Review – “Hidden Tribe”

Hidden_Tribe_Cover

The new novel by Desirée Lee, and myself is our sasquatch book “Hidden Tribe“. It has its first review:

“As a field researcher and investigator of over 25 years in the fields of cryptozoology, ufology and parapsychology, I am affiliated with many groups out there and I have spent my fair share of time searching for the elusive creature that we most commonly know as Bigfoot. Since I was a child I read every book I could get my hands on pertaining to the subject. I read a lot of nonfiction books but every once and a while I will read a novel on the subject if it is well written and based on facts. Hidden Tribe is just that.

     I recently read Hidden Tribe written by my gifted friend Scott Harper and his lovely, talented wife Desiree Lee. This booknot only held my interest but was written in a way that used documented factual information about the creatures to help tell the story and clearly shows tha tthe authors did their research and didn’t just follow the Hollywood cookiecutter image of a Bigfoot as a vicious monster loose in the countryside destroying everything and everyone in it’s path for no apparent reason.

     The story was different as it showed the perspective of the creatures themselves and depicted the very real conflict of researchers and individuals in the field who hold different views and values on whether the creature should be killed or not.I appreciate a different kind of storyline and approach to the subject and feel that the writers of the story did a wonderful job making the reader enthralled better educated on the subject at hand and anticipating what is on the next page throughout the read.

     I recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good tale and has an interest in the subject of Bigfoot. Keep up the great work Scott and Desiree and thank you both for depicting these mysterious creatures in a more serious and humanistic way. I can’t wait to see what you write next!”
