Eventually I fleshed out a solid revenge tale and called it “The Gun of our Maker”, which I worked on prior to my jaunt to China and tinkered with since.
The market for Westerns is smaller than a prairie dog’s arsehole at the minute, so I’ve decided to polish it up and release it as an e-book for the fun-sized price of 99p. Look out for it in the coming weeks or months if you like your grit true and your vengeance bloody!
To whet your whistle, here’s the official blurb for “The Gun of our Maker”, coming soon:
Minnesota, 1859: a man is executed for skimming
from a silver mine to provide for his family.
Arizona, 1877: the sins of the father catch up with the son
Six weeks later: a man on horseback scales
the forests of the Mogollon Rim. He is
searching for Bill Hawken, a renowned gunsmith.
Vivian Culhane is far from a typical hero. Crippled by a
childhood illness, he is weak, blind – yet unstoppable.
Together they will build an instrument of vengeance
that will be known across Arizona, New Mexico and
Texas – a revolver that produces red smoke,
with a limited supply bullets and a thirst for justice.
