Giveaway! Big Diehl: Comes a Peace

Big Diehl: Comes a Peace

by George Seaton

Comes a PeaceBig Diehl struggles against his inner demons to make a home for himself and Joe Tye on the high plains of northwestern Colorado.
Big Diehl and Joe Tye leave Wyoming, with little more than their border collie, Jack, sharing dreams of making a home together on the high plains of northwestern Colorado. Their shared intent is to work hard, and establish themselves as good and honest men who only want a fair shake from those they encounter in the small towns and big ranches of this mountain paradise. Their hopes for the future become fragile, though, when not eveyone is willing to accept them for who they are. So too, the inner demons Diehl still carries from the first Gulf War threaten his and Joe’s dreams of the peaceful, loving place they both wish to embrace the rest of their lives.
Sequel to Big Diehl: The Road Home

Backlist Bonanza: Saving Skylar Hand, by George Seaton

1400x2100Saving_Skylar_Hand_Final (1)Lifelong love of two boys growing up on the west-central Texas scrub, their lives entangled by the dynamic of families so starkly different.
Skylar Hand and Cody Pinnt share their lives upon the west-central Texas scrub. Both born to a cattle rancher’s life, their view of the world and their place in it, takes one down a path toward heady dreams of a future away from the land. The other sees worth only in trudging his days, as his daddy has, upon the land; his dreams confined to what he has known his entire life. Their love is sorely tested by the choices they make.

Joyfully Jay says: “I was captivated by this story from the very beginning. The beautiful characters, that fabulous storyline, the hope for love and a future, even the short, easy to read chapters all served to bring this story to life. I highly recommend Saving Skylar Hand by George Seaton.”

Indie Reviews says: “Mr. Seaton gifts the reader with a beautifully written and tender holiday tale of lifelong friendship between two boys that are separated by the life choices they make as young adults, only to realize that their love for one another is immutable and that they cannot spend their lives apart.”

Rainbow Book Reviews says: “I totally fell in love with this wonderfully paced, coming of age tale of two Texas boys struggling to find themselves and their place in the world.”

Backlist Bonanza: Big Diehl (The Road Home), by George Seaton

We’re starting a new feature here at Out in Colorado called Backlist Bonanza. That name pretty much says it all, right? I don’t need to spell it out for you? 😉

We’re starting with George Seaton.

Big Diehl_Hi_Res_Final-1Diehl’s return to Wyoming from six years of service to his country – including combat in Iraq – is colored with a dark intent to even the score with his father. But before he can once again embrace his adopted family, including Tony, a ranch hand with a military history of his own, Diehl’s single-minded purpose of revenge against his father precipitates events that turn his life in a direction never envisioned. His comfort through it all, is Jack, a Border Collie who Diehl rescues from certain death; a dog who, perhaps, rescues Diehl from himself.

Indie Reviews said: “Simply put – I loved this story, I loved this character, but most of all I love how this man writes.” 
Rarely Dusty Books said: “Personally I really enjoyed the ride Mr Seaton took me on – in his unusual writing style, with clipped sentences in which the use of a pronoun is considered overrated.”
Nyxx’s Nook said:  “An absolutely wonderfully written book that draws a clear picture of what is going on as well as great character development. Each character stands out in their own way and you can’t help but learn to love Big and his large personality.” 
Reviews by Jessewave said: “The book, which I enjoyed very much, wrapped up with a surprise ending. Definitely Recommended.”
