      The fall of 2015 will herald the release of the third volume in the Bonner Family saga The working title is Hangtown and will continue Josh and Elizabeth s adventures in the first days of the California Gold Rush One reader commented in their review that I was cruel for leaving the reader knee deep in a freezing river Sorry for that, Hangtown should be just what so many readers have asked for Josh and Elizabeth will partner up with Duncan Shipwash, the Brit mining engineer, and with Jubal, their faithful friend The family Van Volk will, as many emigrants to the Gold Country did, open a bakery and restaurant We will meet a company of Argonauts who come to Alta California to seek their fortunes Along the way, you will learn about gold prospecting and the early, lawless days in California after the Mexican War and the California Republic.Let me tell you how the first two books The Platte River Waltz series and this upcoming book came to be I read, and highly recommend, the non fiction book Men to Match my Mountains by Irving Stone He chronicles the opening of the early west, the migration across the plains and the history of California Once I d finished Stone s book, I started looking for fiction about the migration west Most everything I found was young adult fiction and I decided to create my own characters and pen a story for an adult audience The Platte River Waltz books were the result I might note several of the reviews criticized the book for some sexual content the readers deemed superfluous and not adding to the story I didn t include the passages simply to be prurient My two main characters were newlywed eighteen year olds turned loose on a wild frontier What can I say That s what eighteen year old newlyweds do.At the end of The Growler Brigade the two main characters have arrived in the gold country and found early success The story couldn t just stop so I started researching the history of California The early days of the Gold Rush and the transition of Alta California from a virtually ignored Mexican province, to an independent republic, to an American territory is one of the most exciting periods in American history What is now San Francisco was a tiny trading settlement on the bay numbering about eight hundred inhabitants With the discovery of gold, the sleepy village of Yerba Buena was transformed to the most popular destination on earth, drawing fortune hunters, dreamers, visionaries and villains from every corner and country on the planet The new arrivals tramped inland by the thousands and clad over every riverbank, arroyo, and canyon of the Sierras None were prepared for what they encountered.I hope to announce the release of Hangtown in November of 2015 and hope you will join the Bonners and their friends and enemies along the way You will learn a little history and a bit about wresting the color from the wild rivers of the Sierra Nevada Familiar characters come and go New friends share the thrill and dangers of a wild and violent world For those who have enjoyed the first two books, sorry for the wait For those who have yet to meet Josh and Elizabeth Bonner, the adventure is just a click away.In another genre, crime fiction, Consaul has just released Deadly Talley The protagonist, Dean Talley, is an Orange County sheriff grown cynical from years of exposure to the worst people can do to each other Numb and disinterested, he is going through the motions.until his wife is the victim of a carjacking and is placed in a coma to save her life.
