Book Recommendation

If you're looking for an entertaining trip of historical fiction through multiple cultures -Imperial Japan and the British Isles during the Middle Ages - may I suggest 'The Rose and the Crane' by Clint Dohmen. The manuscript has been in development for several years and the finished product has gone on sale, today!


I haven't read the whole book but I did review an early draft of one chapter. It was captivating and adventurous - exotic and worldly. I look forward to embarking upon the complete journey.

Full disclosure: Clint is my brother-in-law. To that end, multiple early book sales and online reviews are greatly appreciated. Tell all yer friends!

Is a Kindle® version in the works?

Available now in paperback, and Kindle!

Excellent! By the way, when you're on the Paperback page the Kindle version does not show up in "Show Other Formats."

JK, Did you order on Kindle? Some crazy Dohmen seems to be keeping score on who has sold more of Clint's books. :-)

P.S. I'm currently winning.

I just started "War & Peace" last weekend. I should get around to this in . . . oh 2019 . . . maybe Christmastime.

Sales update: Today The Rose and the Crane sales rank is up from the eleven thousands to #971 in the Kindle Historical Fiction category.

Keep up the good work spreading the word, ThreeSourcers!

And get busy reading your copy. I hear there's a great "grasshopper dinner" scene. And something about Percheron horses.
