Now Available — BLOOD ON BULL’S RUN by Kevin Crisp — Giveaway!

When Jed Deming sets out to bring home a beautiful runaway, he soon has his horse stolen and finds himself being chased by Paiute Indians. Wounded and barely able to make his escape, he comes upon a friendly camp that turns out to be not-so-friendly—leaving him at the mercy of a ruthless cutthroat gang of outlaws. But Jed has made a promise to Selena’s mother to find her—and though he’s young and inexperienced, he’s got more determination than many men twice his age.

Killing outlaws is not what he set out to do, but sometimes, a man has to test his own mettle to know what he’s worth… Will Jed be able to keep his word to find Selena in the rough mining camps she’s run to? His future depends on his success—and her decision to return with him, or stay with the life she’s chosen. The letter in his pocket explains everything—if Jed lives long enough to find Selena amid the BLOOD ON BULL’S RUN…

EXCERPT:


     Deming had never killed a man, but he didn't let himself dwell on that now. He had hunted plenty of game, and was sufficiently skilled with a musket. But the revolver was less familiar in his hand, and this enemy was new, as well.
     The Paiute paused in his tracks at the edge of the juniper. He studied the trees. His eyes swept over Deming, who could almost feel their dark, penetrating gaze.
     Deming pulled the trigger.
     There was an explosion and wood splintered a foot away from the Paiute's head. Unharmed, the Indian dashed to the ground and rolled out of view. That was the last straw for Rayo, who broke into a run out of the trees and up the canyon.

  1. Kevin, I always love to see your books and short stories come across my desk. They are always pure western in every sense of the word, and this one is no exception. I loved the twists and turns--wonderful tale!

    1. Thanks Cheryl! I was thinking quite a lot about Jed Deming this past week as I just came back from a week of camping in the wilderness myself. I really liked that character. Reminds me of someone. :)

  4. Congratulations on the release of you new book.
    I will have to get in touch with the library where I used to work. There were a lot of men (for a small county library) who read nothing but westerns. What was on hand they had read several times over. I don't remember them adding any to the collection while I was there except for a few paperbacks I brought in. I always like introducing people to new authors they might like. It is one of the things I miss the most about the job.
