Freeborn, Western Fiction

KBY Books, the fiction imprint of JDP ECON Publications, is pleased to announce the publication of FREEBORN, a Tale of the Wild West’s Most Unlikely Hero, a novel that combines the comedy and western with rare aplomb.  With the ribald humor of Blazing Saddles added to the whimsy and spirit of the Princess Bride, Jeff Peterman has loosened the grip of the old west with a fictional fable of raucous nights that would make Deadwood proud, the grasp of family heritage on the next generation, and the power of love to change a prairie landscape, or at least the non-bandit portion of the wild west.  Freeborn, ... Deadwood and Tombstone combined, but with a sense of humor.

Freeborn - Now available in hardcover and e-book versions.  The hardcover can be purchased from your finest bookstore or online retailer.  Click the title link for more information or to order individual copies.  $27.95 list price USA.  $36.95 list price Canada.  The E-book is now available from Amazon Digital Services for puchase or borrowing at $3.99 per download.
