My Guest on Terri's Blog for February

I warmly welcome my guest blogger this month, Louise Metcalf (MAPS, COP). There is a great deal of ongoing debate about the sustainability of our planet. Louise, awarded the honor of one of the top 100 sustainability leaders in the world in 2011, is a dedicated and passionate scientist. She is also a writer of apocalyptic fiction, the flipside to her life's work. She is best placed to know 'what happens if we fail?' I recommend her blog to everyone.



Monday, February 27 2012 : The campaign is proceeding in the distribution of my media release to book review editors in newspapers, as well as to freelance journalists. We have also moved into querying and pitching to genre-specific review sites and publications, genre being historical fiction, with a sub-genre if you like of The West/Wyoming. Several book requests by reviewers have also come in, and  interest has been expressed by an online women's magazine for Heartland to feature with a giveaway.

LATEST Empire For Liberty REVIEW

A great review makes not only your day, your week and your year, but affirms all your hard work and reassures you that readers will love what they find between the front and back covers. Here is the latest review for Empire for Liberty:

Book Review
By Rama Gaind
PS News Books
Empire for Liberty
By Terri Sedmak (Vivid Publishing, $34.95, softcover, 486 pages)

If captivating historical fiction—and a family saga at that— is your preference, then this second book in the Liberty & Property Legends series will nicely fit the bill.

Terri Sedmak has again produced a sequel that is rich with characters, where we get the chance to observe the best and worst of humanity, a narrative that’s warmed with humour and romance.
However, it will make for a more enjoyable experience if you read the prequel Heartland: On the Side of Angels.

The second instalment continues the story of Luke Taylor’s journey for justice, introducing intriguing and impertinent lively new characters who shed light on the darkness surrounding betrayal and murder.

Set in Cheyenne, Wyoming, 1885, the narrative sets a fast pace.
In the State Penitentiary in Colorado, prisoner Five One Three serving a life sentence is in poor health. Laramie County Sheriff, Cliff, has trouble extracting pertinent information from him.

All the while, Cliff himself is surrounded by controversy with rumours circulating that he and prosecutor, Cam Faraday, have conspired to hide evidence. Disturbing consequences result after motivated journalist Emmaline Roberts is given the task of investigating these claims.

Each chapter tells the story through the eyes of a different ‘person’, well developed – just like in the first. It’s easy to get immersed in the vibrant history, walking along with the individuals, having to remind yourself that they are only fictional. As you are swept into the lives of an engaging Cliff and a feisty Emmaline, you start caring for the characters.

Another emotional rollercoaster is assured with Empire for Liberty, a second instalment in a six-part series.

This Australian author certainly knows how to paint a vivid picture!

Edition 257, 8 February 2012

AND NOW… secrets from the vault of Volume Three!

 “Your kin, Luke, this is your country; you are born to them, not to a land, for lands can be left; there are many paths to take you forth, many gates to open and shut, before you understand this and be content.” Red Sky
     The story behind the legend… more of Red Sky and Ethan’s extraordinary personal story will be revealed.
     On the Seal, the representation for Volume Three is a rose.
     Relationships, old and new, are about to get even more complicated and dangerous. And we’re headed for the Mile High City for some dedicated Bodecker-hunting.
     An audacious new romance with a startling revelation…
… and so much more! 
     The vault is now sealed until release date!


You may have noticed on my home page that you can now purchase HEARTLAND On the Side of Angels and EMPIRE FOR LIBERTY as eBooks from my website.
     Yet another exciting development at Tank & Ferry Entertainment. Just pop on over to the GENERAL STORE to take advantage of the special introductory offer. 



This year Tank & Ferry Entertainment is aiming to release its first novel under its new imprint Medicine Bow Romance.
     With all the work that goes on here at T & FE HQ, you’d be forgiven for asking who has time to pen romances as well as The Liberty & Property Legends? That being said, the first novel in this series, titled The Storyteller of Feather Ridge, is in the final draft stage, so a 2012 publication date is envisioned.
     At this stage T & FE haven’t confirmed if the novel will be published as a paperback or an eBook or both. The question is, will it push back the late-2012 release of Volume Three of The Legends? It is not expected to at this stage. But anything can (and does) happen in the world of the independent author and the self-publishing game. It promises to be an exciting year!


Please come visit on Terri’s blog. I have invited some very special guest bloggers who write on a broad range of topics close to their heart that encompass a world of ideas, embody liberty and celebrate freedom of expression. I know you will find what they have to say interesting and dynamic. If you would like to contribute something you believe reflects the ideals of liberty and property in some way, please contact me, or add your thoughts or comments to my blog, or my guest’s. I look forward to it!

HEARTLAND: Publicity Campaign in the U.S.

Tank & I are very excited about our new publicity campaign.
     Beginning in mid-February, HEARTLAND On the Side of Angels will be formally presented to the U.S. media by Smith Publicity, Inc.
     Some readers may have already seen our Facebook ad for HEARTLAND which appeared earlier in 2011. This campaign will be a huge step and something we have been looking forward to even before our Aussie campaigns, which ended in December. We certainly learnt much more than I can say from those; invaluable preparation for the next stage of campaigning, in the U.S.
