Trying out a new web editor. We'll see how it goes. Really miss my Dreamweaver
Been reading a lot of Western themed books lately. The diversity in the genre is amazing for such a small genre. Because I like to see genre as doorways into books rather than barriers I tend to interpret genres as very inclusive rather than exclusive. In the last month I've been finding what works for me as westerns in:
YA romance The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell Oklahoma Territory, Sooners, Water witching
Biographical western (small press) The Woman Who Loved Jesse James by Cindi Myers
Traditional western (self published) PiƱon Mesa by Eugene Vories
YA historical Ghost Moon by John Wilson Billy the Kid & the Lincoln County War
YA fantasy - Weird West The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
