WESTERN PULP: COSSACK THREE PONIES!

WESTERN PULP: COSSACK THRE PONIES!

JAMES REASONER ~ $2.99
HERE’S THE WORD FROM MR. REASONER HIMSELF ON THE KINDLIZATION OF THIS NOVEL . . .

My historical novel COSSACK THREE PONIES, which was a finalist for the Spur Award the year before UNDER OUTLAW FLAGS was also a finalist, is now available on Amazon for the Kindle.

Like DUST DEVILS, this story started its life as a screenplay. I wrote the whole thing on spec, my then-agent circulated it in Hollywood for a while, but nothing came of it so I novelized the script and was able to sell it as a book.

As a result, the story is pretty cinematic, I think, with lots of action and some sweeping battle scenes. The plot finds a Russian cossack who is accompanying a party of nobles on a hunting expedition in the American West falling in with a tribe of Blackfoot Indians and having various adventures with them.

Lots of actual historical stuff in this one, as there is in UNDER OUTLAW FLAGS. (Note the term "actual historical stuff". I ain't nothin' if not an intellectual.) I think the story is a lot of fun, and those of you who take a chance on it, I hope you enjoy it.

COSSACK THREE PONIES

Sent to protect a delegation of Russian aristocrats on a goodwill mission, Viktor was thrilled to journey to the bold, open land of America. But when the arrogant nobles murdered an Indian for sport, Viktor knew that more blood would be shed.

Stranded in a foreign land and caught in a foreign war, with a mortal enemy at his side, Viktor set out to rescue a child from danger. To save his own life, and to become a Blackfoot legend . . .
