FORCED BLOOD THE NORSEMAN by Linda Newton Perry and Christopher Perry
FORCED BLOOD THE NORSEMAN is an atmospheric, blood-rousing saga of courageous men who lived and died by the sword, and of the stoic women who loved them. Set in nineth century Scandinavia the novel depics in graphic detail an often brutal society where life was precarious and uncertain.
The characters who people the novel come off the pages alive, and grip the reader with their fierce passion and courage, and their stoicism in the face of extreme hardship and adversity. The authors are to be commended.

One copy for your home library ! Sure :)
P.S. I have kept your praise for my poems in the book "A Very first book of poems :Heartbreak". I hope you will not mind. :)

Forced Blood The Norseman (Book) - 10/5/2008 5:39:05 PM
Linda Perry's outstanding debut historical novel captures the essence of the wondrous mid 9th century Vikings in Norway. The extensive research and attention to detail is highly evident in the authors realistic portrayal of the Viking Age, which keeps the readers totally compelled and turning the pages. Forced Blood The Norseman is an epic tale from a heady mix of courage, loyalty and passion to fight for your people, and to fight to the death for what is just and fair. Sensational reading, looking forward to your next book!

I always find your big foot stories open and honest and just telling the facts as you know them. I am a believer and do believe that sooner or later proove will be strong enough to convinnce even the die hard skeptics.
Life Changing: Bigfoot (Short Story) - 4/13/2010 7:54:37 PM
Quite a tale, Linda. I find it particularly interesting since I live close to Harrison Hot Springs, BC, Canada, which is a "hot spot" for Bigfoot. Love and best wishes,

Could Bigfoot Simply be a Hairy Human? (Short Story) - 11/1/2009 9:12:12 AM
I have been referred to as sasquatch a time or two in fun, but not quite sure if I would believe someone could make that kind of error.

We live in Ontario Ca. and all summer a beautiful black bear with her cub has been hanging out in the woods behind our house. She has been enjoying the berries that grow wild close by. It has been an exciting summer but we left the bears alone, and they ignored us.

Oct. 12, week of, Bigfoot Column (Short Story) - 10/10/2009 4:20:12 PM
Well this is pretty logical thinking. I was once a big game hunter (mostly)deer and you very seldom saw one when you went looking. You would see plenty of sign, hear lots of sounds but they normally caught your scent or seen you long before you came upon them. The same I would presume to be of bigfoot.

The Hairy Men of the High Mountain Forests, Final Excerpt (Short Story) - 10/9/2009 12:24:26 PM
Well Linda I although I know you said you meant this as only a short story but I hope you change your mind for I can picture this not only as a full length book but also a great movie script...it has it all with just the right amount of possibility.
The Hairy Men of the High Mountain Forests , Excerpt 2 (Short Story) - 10/8/2009 12:57:34 AM
Excellant visuals being applied here and the unusual and unique openess of the write providing a look at what the "family" life and groopins of bigfoot could be like is amazing. Definately keep it going.
The Hairy Men of the High Forests an Excerpt (Short Story) - 10/8/2009 12:54:21 AM
Okay, Sorry I didn't read this first but somehow I missed these first two excepts...Great beginning only suggestion I would make would be to perhaps fill in the gap a little more for the years between age two and mating age. Would also look at just a little more physical characteristics of both the boy and the female. You have such a wonderful ability with that as evident in your stunning capture of their smells. Hope I am not offending by offering advice.
The Hairy Men of the High Mountain Forests, Excerpt 4 (Short Story) - 10/8/2009 12:46:40 AM

Bigfoot, in history, has been known to take children (Short Story) - 9/28/2009 4:13:19 PM
Interesting and I think worthwhile idea to develop. So much we've yet to learn Linda. Not sure about the last two statements though...if sasquatch, can think, reason, vocalize and mate with humans...would you still consider him animal...or just a different species of man?
Look to the Trees (Short Story) - 9/27/2009 2:39:53 PM
Coincidentally I read that very same Nat. Geo. article myself this morning and yes the theory you put forward is not only pausable but actually would make a good subject for a book. Your ability to look at things in more than one light such as that article show the value of always keeping an open mind.

Bigfoot: The Latest Information (Article) - 2/14/2011 5:15:51 AM
I used to be a fan of Bigfoot Ballyhoo and Mrs.Perry,but after my own careful investigating,I am no longer.She has yet to prove that the ESP team is authentic and even if they are,her refusal to properly review their evidence before posting it on her website is very unethical.The so-called proof turned out to be hoaxed and Mrs.Perry's actions tend to make intelligent people come to the conclusion that she was somehow involved.She also refuses to post any comments that try to bring light to the truth,but will post anything critizing those who are trying to find the truth of this matter.I'm sure Mrs. Perry's children books are very good,but her actions concerning the ESP situation have been very unethical and have given bigfoot skeptics more ammunition.

Hi Linda, It looks like we have a similar interest: Bigfoot! I'm the blogger at BigfootSightings.Org and also recently wrote about Dr. Johnson's sighting. I'm going to be reading the rest of your Bigfoot articles. Great job, to write a weekly column about Bigfoot.

Bigfoot Poem (Article) - 3/25/2009 3:03:32 PM
I enjoyed this one Linda, it may be simple but it also has a subliminal touch of spiritual alertness as we contemplate the correlation of such uniqueness of a big foot and the Creator. Definatly lots to think about.
Prologue (Article) - 3/25/2009 5:20:13 AM
I believe in Big Foot, Yeti, the Abominable Snowman or whatever name his is called in your country or neck of the woods. He is not a recent phenomena like UFO’s but legends of him go back to when man first began recording the world around him. The similarities he shares not only with man but with other wildlife species such as the orangutan, great apes, chimpanzees etc and even new species of apes found only in the last few centuries is amazing. So is it so hard to believe that one such species jumped a leap to just a high enough intelligence to not only survive away from mankind but literally hide from us. This is a large world with many areas of it that have still not seen the footprints of man…and maybe that is a good thing for big foot and his survival.

People don't write emails of this calibre, unless the writer is excellent and devoted to the topic.....which you are! Talking of excellent I am enjoying 'FORCED BLOOD THE NORSEMAN' immensely....well done.
Happiness always, Stuart
Compelling Reasons to Still Believe in Bigfoot After the Hoax (Article) - 9/15/2008 10:18:56 PM
Nicely Written, Composition of the text is very good. I hope the big foot exits and it is not hoax.
When we cannot see by our naked eyes, we hardly do not want to believe them but somethings is good to believe without even seeing through the eyes.

I enjoyed your article. I was fascinated with the idea that Bigfoot may have existed when I was a kid. The same goes for Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster.

I love this poem my friend. It's very poetic as
a poem should be to the reader. It's not a novel
or tale but poetic words that linger-prevail.

Thank you for sharing your artistic gift and the message expressed via your verses, Linda. Love and best wishes,
All in a Ball (Poetry) - 10/26/2009 5:11:36 AM
Linda I think you have done an awesome job of this. From illustration to poem all is top notch.
It's a lot harder to illustrate sometimes than it is to write, cause we see in our minds, it's getting it out of there that's the hard part. In this case though you've done a wonderful job.
I can't draw anything but give me a camera and I've got it made. Great work.
The Universal Warrior (Poetry) - 10/15/2009 11:14:16 AM
The beat of this gives that touch of wars past, but the reader can still focus on the words that the writer wants them to feel throughout the verse... Thanks for mentioning this to me and for your time to look at my work... Very busy at the moment with my Anthology and other matters... Good day... to both of you...

Brave warrior:or common thief. This writing follows the stories I have read of the Norsemen and women. They were considered thieves and pillagers. They were true in battle and proud to die. Wonderful reading.
