Pards - I've uploaded a western novel to Kindle - 'Sand River' by James Vaughan. Cover designed by Roy Daines. Our very own Red adorning it.

That Red fella's an unfortunate looking chap, I hope his image doesn't put people off buying the book.

Skeeter, was this a new book written over here?

Just for those who, like me, don't possess a Kindle .. Amazon do a handy free App that can work on PC's Laptops, and Phones that allow you to read Kindle Books without having a Kindle!

Thanks for telling me about that app. It's easier to read on the laptop than on the Kindle.

There are hundreds of thousands of ebooks out there. It's hard to get noticed. Let's hope it works out. I worked on the book for several years. The genre is kind of moribund so ebooks are a blessing. I didn't try to submit it to a print publisher. I assumed I'd be wasting my time.

Encouraged by Skeeter's good example, I have also listed a novel on Amazon Kindle. Set during the Civil War, it follows a Union soldier through the Vicksburg campaign.

It's called To Capture A City and I've used the pen-name Hazel Mauricenne.

It's based on a primary source, History of the Eighty-Third Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry by Joseph Grecian, published in 1865, and I have good intentions of the novel being the first of a series, following the hero through the course of the war.

That's the second time he's been on the front cover of a novel.

Good luck, Hazel-Eye. Getting publicity is the tough bit when you publish online.

Thanks, Skeeter. Yes, marketing is the biggest challenge, offline as well as online, as I found when I worked in publishing years ago. Still, at least we're contributing our mite to help keep the Western genre alive and shooting!
