With so many people already reading A Thrilling Narrative, it’s hard to believe it hasn’t officially been released yet! But June 1 is coming and to celebrate the official launch date, I’ll be mailing at least one of you a free copy.
To enter the drawing, comment on any post on athrillingnarrative.com between now and June 1, 2012. If you’re not feeling erudite, instead leave me a question about the book or the Dakota War of 1862. I’ll tackle the questions in future posts, or will ask a colleague who is a specialist to write a guest post on that subject.
Besides making a comment, you get entries for referrals. So every friend to whom you pass the athrillingnarrative.com link, who mentions your name in their comment will earn an entry of their own and an extra entry for you, too!

Put my name in…would love to read your book!
Thanks, Danyelle! You’re in :).
Would love to read your book! 🙂
Thanks, Beth 🙂 !
I would love to read your book, too!
Thank you for saying so, Vanessa!
Your book sounds really interesting. How long did this war last? What was the long term effect on the children and families of the Dakota people?
Wow. The war lasted only six weeks (on the white man’s calendar) but 150 years later, it still effects Dakota people. I will try to find some Dakota sources I can link to on the blog so you can hear that part of the story in their own words. Thank you for asking.
Congratulations on being published!
Hum….wordpress is locking me out….trying again on this one.
Glad you tried again, Auntie:)!
The book sounds fascinating and I hope you’ll link to where we all can get it. Can you tell us who did the cover painting? That book cover is very nice and doing its job of making me want more.
Natasha, There are purchase links on the “About the Book” menu at the top of the page. Thanks for asking :). I have a post coming up about the cover and the artist. It was not painted for the book. But my co-editor and I thought it was so perfect for this story that we were thrilled to be given permission to use it!
As a Midwestern history buff, I would love to read your book. It sounds fascinating.
Enter my name, too. The book sound fascinating!
My great great grandfather, John Zimmerman, and two of his sons were shot and killed by Indians in front of my great grandmother, Elizabeth Zimmerman. My sister and I are planning a trip to the area to visit the monuments. I appreciate reading anything about the uprising and thank you for your book.
I am not familiar with this aspect of American history, and would love to read the book to learn more.

I would love to read your book, and I’m sure my father in law would love it as well. Michelle Rutta-Wahe from A.T. 🙂 (mrutta)
What an exciting time for you. Loved the cover of the book. Lauren is sitting on my lap now asking all sorts of 3 year old questions about it. Your book sounds right up my alley for reading material. Congrats!!!
Congratulations on your book, Carrie. It sounds like a gripping story.
Carrie will be speaking about her work on this book Thursday, July 26 at 7 p.m. at Turner Hall in New Ulm. Everyone is welcome to meet Carrie and learn more about the U.S.-Dakota War and Carrie’s research!
