Hidden Tribe

"Hidden Tribe" has been given another positive book review:

"From the start this pulled me in and would not let go. My grandfather would find evidence of sasquatch so I grew up feeling that they exist. I found this to be a believable tale. The characters were also very well done. I appreciated being able to read the Sasquatch's POV. Well done as always and I look forward to the next tale from the authors. My only regret is that it was not longer. It stopped in the perfect place, I just want more!"

Haven't picked up your own copy of "Hidden Tribe" yet? Grab it now!

"Hidden Tribe"

Sasquatch—they live peacefully in the forests, and woodlands. They want little, or nothing, to do with humans, and our civilization. As a whole, sasquatch are tranquil, quiet beings who live harmoniously with nature, and avoid us.

But what happens when humans refuse to return the favor?

Researcher Alexia Hollander is about to find out. When she ventures into the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, seeking evidence of the elusive species, things quickly get out of hand. Another researcher deliberately gets in Alexia's way. Campers, and hunters bumble in, adding their own disruptive presence to the quiet work that Alexia wants to perform.

With their home territory invaded by humans, a mated pair of sasquatch keep the intruders under close surveillance. They aren't happy about the presence of the trespassers, and want them gone. Just how far will these normally restrained beings go to protect their family, and themselves? Alexia, and her unwanted companions are about to find out!

Hidden Tribe

We’re in the process of contacting indie author friendly bookstores all over the USA, and Canada, asking them to stock our latest release, “Hidden Tribe“. If you own a bookstore, I’m asking you now to, please, help us out by getting a copy or two of “Hidden Tribe” on your shelves. If you know someone who owns, or works at a bookstore, please ask them to stock “Hidden Tribe” for us. Every store that stocks even a single copy is doing us a huge favor by making the book that much more visible to the public.



Here’s an excerpt from a pre-publication review of the book by a fortean researcher:



“The story was different as it showed the perspective of the creatures themselves and depicted the very real conflict of researchers and individuals in the field who hold different views and values on whether the creature should be killed or not. I appreciate a different kind of storyline and approach to the subject and feel that the writers of the story did a wonderful job making the reader enthralled better educated on the subject at hand and anticipating what is on the next page throughout the read.

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good tale and has an interest in the subject of Bigfoot. Keep up the great work Scott and Desiree and thank you both for depicting these mysterious creatures in a more serious and humanistic way. I can’t wait to see what you write next!”



“Hidden Tribe” (· ISBN-10: 1939378060 · ISBN-13: 978-1939378064 260-pages-long)

Hidden Tribe by Scott Harper

The new novel by Desirée Lee, and myself is our sasquatch book “Hidden Tribe“. It has its first review:

“As a field researcher and investigator of over 25 years in the fields of cryptozoology, ufology and parapsychology, I am affiliated with many groups out there and I have spent my fair share of time searching for the elusive creature that we most commonly know as Bigfoot. Since I was a child I read every book I could get my hands on pertaining to the subject. I read a lot of nonfiction books but every once and a while I will read a novel on the subject if it is well written and based on facts. Hidden Tribe is just that.

I recently read Hidden Tribe written by my gifted friend Scott Harper and his lovely, talented wife Desiree Lee. This booknot only held my interest but was written in a way that used documented factual information about the creatures to help tell the story and clearly shows tha tthe authors did their research and didn’t just follow the Hollywood cookiecutter image of a Bigfoot as a vicious monster loose in the countryside destroying everything and everyone in it’s path for no apparent reason.

The story was different as it showed the perspective of the creatures themselves and depicted the very real conflict of researchers and individuals in the field who hold different views and values on whether the creature should be killed or not.I appreciate a different kind of storyline and approach to the subject and feel that the writers of the story did a wonderful job making the reader enthralled better educated on the subject at hand and anticipating what is on the next page throughout the read.

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good tale and has an interest in the subject of Bigfoot. Keep up the great work Scott and Desiree and thank you both for depicting these mysterious creatures in a more serious and humanistic way. I can’t wait to see what you write next!”

Fortean researcher Thomas Lee Curtin Jr.

Though edits haven’t yet been done on my new project, “Warder: Changing Guard”, I thought you all might like a brief preview. So, here are the first few paragraphs of that fantasy novella:

She shook her head, trying to banish the fleeting sensation of energy rippling around the squat cottage before her. Kayley Enid shrugged her travel pack higher onto her thin shoulders, and gripped her gnarled walking staff tighter in her other hand. Inhaling deeply, she placed the tough soles of her comfortable traveling boots on the beginning of the winding cobblestoned path that led to the small abode. Weeds poked up from between the stones here and there, thickest where the manmade path branched off from the dirt track, which ran through the dense forest, and by the clearing in which the little house sat.

She drew the hood of her lightweight, white traveling cloak further over her eyes to block the glare of the sunlight as she looked at the house. Though it appeared a bit rundown—its thatch roof in need of some minor repairs, and the unpainted wooden shingles that covered its outer walls beginning to split and peel in places—the cottage managed to radiate power, and mystique. A river stone chimney poked up from the roof, devoid of smoke on the warm, late summer day. No sounds emanated from the dwelling. Nor did any fragrances of cooking food drift from it. The stillness, and silence lent the place the illusion of being empty. Yet, for some reason, Kayley knew beyond doubt that the man she had walked so far to see waited inside.

She followed the cobblestones to the point where they met the three solid-looking wooden stairs that led up to a wide front porch. After a brief hesitation, she ascended the steps. The change in sound as her boots left the stone, and trod upon wood, momentarily startled her in the oppressive silence. Taking another deep, steadying breath, she hung her head, thinking.

Should she really do this? If she turned back, she would have made the long journey for absolutely nothing. That would be worse than if he simply turned her away, spurning her offer.

Kayley tightened her grip on her walking staff. The corners of her mouth tugged down in a frown, angry with herself for having come so far, only to engage in second thoughts.
If he sent her away, at least she would have tried. She would do her utmost to convince him should he not accept quickly. Still, the thought of meeting the man caused her to move slowly. She felt as if her arm had turned to wood as she lifted her free hand to knock on the heavy door.

Rapping lightly on the wooden panel, Kayley held her breath. Would he answer? Would he be angry with her for intruding? Would he even speak with her, and allow her to present her offer to him?

Gentle footsteps sounded from the other side of the barrier. Kayley forced out her breath, trying to relax. She pushed her hood back, giving her head a quick shake in an attempt to settle her long, raven-black hair into a more natural arrangement. She glanced down, glad that she had taken care on the trail that day. Her soft, tan leather pants, and knee-high black boots were almost completely devoid of mud, and burrs.

She heard a series of clicks, and rattles as a number of latches and locks were unfastened on the other side of the door. After a moment of silence, the barrier swung open without a sound on well-oiled hinges. A tall, lean, pale-skinned, elderly man stood revealed. He wore dark pants, with matching boots, and a white tunic. Each piece fit him perfectly, and had been expertly stitched, and crafted. He gazed down at her from beneath wild eyebrows. When he spoke, his long white beard wagged.
