Lonesome Range Commentary

My novel Lonesome Range was a challenge to write and, for me at least, one of the two or three best things I had written up to this point. For my entry on this novel, I am posting the commentary that I wrote for the Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing) website when the book came out in 2006.

For the Norden Boys Commentary

I continue to post commentaries I have written about my own work, with the assumption that anyone who ends up here is interested in knowing about things I have written.  For additional images, book descriptions, and review excerpts, one may go to the “Books” tab above and browse there.

For the Norden Boys is my eighth traditional western novel.  It was published in June 2002 by Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing).  As with Black Hat Butte and Lonesome Range, I consider it to be at the center of my work, as it is a literary traditional western with strong interest in character and landscape. For the Norden Boys is available at Amazon.

Here is a bit of commentary I am reintroducing. It is a post I wrote about Black Diamond Rendezvous in 2009. Black Diamond Rendezvous is available at Amazon.

Black Diamond Rendezvous is my fourth traditional western novel and my first paperback original. It was published in May 1998 by Leisure Books (Dorchester Publishing). It was actually the third western I wrote, but it was the fourth published, which probably doesn’t matter much to anyone but myself. However, there is a mini-chapter here on the topic of how, why, or why not a work will be published.
