New Review for MOON HUNT!

We just received a lovely review for MOON HUNT in the Providence Journal:

“Few authors have ever been able to lay claim to a genre. But Kathleen and Michael Gear have taken historical fiction and made it all their own, as clearly displayed in “Moon Hunt” (Forge, 416 pages, $26.99), the third in their Native American Morning Star series.

All the staples of the Gears’ brilliant, richly drawn tapestries are firmly on display here, once again… The Gears have reconstructed Moon Hunt’s ancient world with such vivid tones and expertly crafted detail that it magically comes to life in the tradition of James Michener. But they’re much better storytellers and the result is a tale certain to generate broad appeal, whether you’re a history buff or not.”

Providence Journal, December 19, 2017.

Thanks! It’s always a relief to get a great review!

Hope everyone is having warm and wonderful holidays!

Snowy Day

Hi All!

It’s a beautiful day here in Wyoming. We’ve had snow for the past two days, but it’s melting fast this morning. The wild turkeys are out flapping up to eat out of the bird feeders, and the buffalo are grazing the meadow in front of the house. High up on the mountain, a small herd of elk is bedded down in the snow en

enjoying the sunshine.

Our latest book in the Cahokia series just came out a few days ago!  MOON HUNT.  Hope you enjoy it!

Have a great day,

Mike and Kathy

Book Signing yesterday

We had such a great time at our book signing yesterday in Cody, Wyoming. Legends Bookstore did a fantastic job and we met so many wonderful people. If you need a signed copy for a holiday gift, Legends still has a few signed copies available. Please call Teresa: 307-586-2320, or email her at: legendsbookscody@gmail.com, and she’ll get an autographed copy in the mail to you ASAP.

Hope everyone is well out there. We’re having an unusually warm winter here.

Happy Holidays,

End of July

Hi All,

It’s been hot here. Well hot for us, in the low 90s. The grass is finally starting to turn a rich summer tan, but all of our springs are still running. The buffalo love these secret water sources hidden in treed drainages around the ranch.

We’re having fun working on PEOPLE OF THE CANYONS, about the Fremont culture–such a fascinating prehistoric people!

On these hot days, keep in mind that the cool temperatures of autumn are just around the corner.

JUST BACK FROM THRILLERFEST in New York!

 

We just returned from ThrillerFest in New York. This is the finest writers’ conference in America. One of the best parts is just sitting around and catching up with old friends. But THE best part this year was getting the new galley of Mike’s civil war novel, THIS SCORCHED EARTH, which comes out in April of 2018.  Our editor, Claire Eddy, is doing such a beautiful job with this book.  Thanks to everyone at Forge Books for all their hard work.

Hope you are all happy and healthy, and having a wonderful July.

Best,

Mike and Kathy
