Exciting news from Tank & Ferry Entertainment! Introducing Medicine Bow Books... featuring THE STORYTELLER

The last few months have been very busy here at Tank & Ferry Entertainment as we prepared to release our first publication under our new imprint Medicine Bow Books published through Vivid Publishing. The Storyteller is set in south Wyoming against the backdrop of impending statehood in 1890 and is the first mystery-romance by novelist Ava Pashley. We are thrilled by this latest addition to our little company of books and proud to bring to readers this highly entertaining novel.

The power of the written word will change her town forever…
Vicki Carlisle, a young woman with ambitions that stretch far beyond the confines of her father’s prosperous ranch in the high country of southern Wyoming, writes the adventures of her suffragette-like character Evangeline and has them published in Quest & Quill. When Evangeline tackles two age-old taboos, all hell breaks loose in her home town of Feather Ridge.
      The simultaneous arrival of Will Harrison, a young Montana rancher who takes up the temporary post of foreman while Vicki’s father recuperates from injury, complicates her less than simple life.
      In need of a new direction after his own personal tragedy, Will finds passionate Vicki, her five beguiling sisters, a busy ranch and becoming embroiled in the town’s upheaval much more than he bargained for.
      Rippling with mystery and intrigue, The Storyteller will deposit you squarely in Feather Ridge, a little town with a big secret, and won’t let you leave until the storyteller has spun her final web of words.

“Vicki is a young woman who through the sheer exuberance of her imagination is prone to exaggeration. Will, being a steady young man who is realizing that there is more to his life than what he’s known, simply cannot resist her. Their journey is about being the person you need to be, living the life you are meant to live, finding the courage and the means to make it happen. And that might just mean not doing it all on your own as you thought.”
Ava Pashley on her romantic protagonists in The Storyteller.

About the Author
Author Ava Pashley is passionate about writing and about storytelling so perhaps it is fitting that her first mystery-romance is called The Storyteller. She writes under the Medicine Bow imprint for Tank & Ferry Entertainment. This is her first mystery-romance, set in 1890 with Wyoming's imprending statehood as its historical backdrop. She says, "I find exploring the beautiful Medicine Bow Mountains and National Forest in southern Wyoming, with its natural beauty, lively history, friendly people and sense of adventure, provides profound inspiration for my writing." Look out for Ava Pashley's website coming soon.

On Goodreads - Crimson Wing

Ever wondered about the 'all in a day's work' writing process of a writer. My latest blog on Crimson Wing is a glimpse at such a day in my life. So following up from My coffee cups are milling around my computer like off-duty soldiers is: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; that's why I eat it for lunch in my pyjamas.

Hope you enjoy the vision!
