We don’t know about you, but we could use a little distraction from the stress and chaos of the world right now. Here at Historical Fiction we’ve been taking advantage of this time at home to do a lot more reading than usual.

We’re also joining with other authors to share free books as a way to support each other and lift each other up through this difficult time. For this week until April 19th we’re offering the ebook version of Blackfoot Crossing by Norma Sluman for free.
