Slightly more than a piddly 24 hours remain before the Goodreads Giveaway Sweepstakes for my edgy, exceedingly literate fantasy, The Language of Bears, about the beginning and end of America, in whose storyline figure prominantly a range of memorable characters (a crazed storekeeper who bakes mice into muffins, an evil rancher driven mad and rendered horribly deformed by an accident with an experimental tanning solution made of apple juice and pig brains, a Puritan “fist-of-Jesus” preacher with unbalanced testicles, a medieval -sort of- physician who has invented an apothecarial powder that enables him to talk with animals, a fantastically courageous little girl who gets lost in a cave wherethrough flows a river of oil, and many many more!), ends!
Just click on the link below for more details on the book and a chance to win a free (Kindle) copy!* Gee willikers, it’s free to enter and takes almost no time, so what’re you waiting for, by gum!?!
Here’s what it’s about:
The peaceful life of 17th century New England Puritan farmer Adam Green is ripped apart when he finds a television set in the woods. His discovery enables evil madman animal-skinner and proto-industrialist Obadiah Broke to have Adam arrested for witchcraft and steal the magical black water (oil, that is) seeping onto Adam’s farm. A hairsbreadth escape from the pillory leads the young farmer to discover the incredible truth behind the strange land he lives in. Now it is up to Adam, a hunted fugitive, to find a way to defeat the monstrous forces threatening his home and the rest of the world. There is no hope unless he can learn…the language of bears.
*Sorry, only people living in the United States of America are eligible (I tried to make the Giveaway international, but the option doesn’t exist for me, perhaps because I myself don’t live in the U.S.).
