Here’s a quick quote from Bone Box:

Bone Box by Jay Amberg

“Archeology is always a puzzle,” she says. “Sometimes the pieces fit together.” She stoops and shifts one of the shards slightly. “And once in a while you find something that changes the way you see the world.”

Help get the word out for Blood Moon: A Captive’s Tale

Ruth Hull Chatlien, author of the award-winning The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte, is running a Thunderclap campaign to promote her upcoming novel, Blood Moon: A Captive’s Tale. Read more below, or on Ruth’s blog, and please consider joining to get the word out for this compelling new book.

The moment I heard about Sarah Wakefield’s experiences during the deadly Dakota War of 1862, I knew I had to tell her story. Because Sarah was unusually sympathetic to the Dakota people’s reasons for fighting, I wanted to use her as a bridge character to explore both sides of the conflict.

Now my fictionalized version of her ordeal is about to be published. Blood Moon: A Captive’s Tale is coming out on June 14, 2017. I’m very proud of this novel because I think it illuminates an important episode in our country’s history.

Now I’m asking you to help me spread the word. Thunderclap is a crowdspeaking platform. It’s like Kickstart and Go Fund Me, except instead of asking people to donate money, it’s asking them to donate the use of their social media accounts for a one-time announcement.

To participate, all you have to do is to follow this link to the page for my campaign and agree to let Thunderclap post my advertising message to your social media accounts.

I have participated in Thunderclap campaigns for several friends, and I can assure you that it’s not only very simple to do, but Thunderclap will not post anything to your page except this one campaign you agree to take part in.

In short, participating in this campaign is a simple, almost effortless way to help a friend. Will you please sign up today?
