Christmas present for all you Western fans out there...
Over the last few days, here on the glorious Perpetua Coast near Yachats I fully re-edited the first book of the western I wrote in 2006 & 2007. At the urging of a good friend I published it on Amazon Kindle Direct. It's free, right now at least.
Last Call at the Rusty Nail
Jack Crow is a treasure hunter and a gunslinger. Robert Cogburn is a gregarious gambler and ladies man. Solomon David is a travelling archaeologist and scholar. When the three get tangled up in a plot to take over Texas they end up drawing their friends and lovers into an adventure that spans the breadth of the state and changes the course of history.
One part adventure story, one part mystery, one part reflection on the Western genre, Last Call at the Rusty Nail is a fast-paced tale of heroism, scholarship, gunplay, family, history, and the darkness of the imagined West.
This one is a frolicking action adventure set in Texas, 1902. It's a bit of a mystery, a bit meta maybe, and a lot of homage to Larry McMurtry, Frank Dobie, Zane Grey, and Elmore Leonard (RIP.) I hope some of you enjoy it. :)
