Improved Back-matter for Sleeping in Snow with Bears - More Plot Disclosure

Here is some new back-matter I've just written for my novel, Sleeping in Snow with Bears. It shares a bit more of the story's plot than prior versions where I was deliberately evasive.

* * * * *

Aimee, Marcie and Boyd, three best friends since college, will do absolutely anything for one another. Their lifelong bond gets sealed one Halloween evening when Aimee is victimized in a horrible sexual assault and Boyd and Marcie step in to take revenge. Unfortunately, things don't work out as planned. Marcie, a brilliant student who wants to be a surgeon, is jailed for the deed and Boyd, a wannabe male model, is facially disfigured and leaves the U.S. for Brazil to learn to fly from an acquaintance who works as a jungle pilot. Still, steel bars and distance can't keep the two apart and Boyd and Marcie find an especially risky way to build a romance. Meanwhile, Aimee's life—initially as promising as her friends'—is falling apart. To numb memories of her assault she's become self-destructive and loses a fiance'. Realizing they must do something to help her, Boyd and Marcie put thoughts of themselves aside and come up with a plan to save Aimee from ruin before she kills herself. Tough under any circumstance, the assignment is especially difficult as one of them has become the focus of nationwide media attention and the other the target of the FBI. Still more challenging, they learn they are vital to an even more important agenda set in motion years earlier by a mysterious spiritual dying man who emulated the American Indian and claimed they will awaken nations if they follow his path.

Sleeping in Snow with Bears is a novel of suspense, action and a touch of romance. It is available in e-book and paperback formats through most major booksellers.
