Roll on 2013


It's here, another year. This post is just a few words to say thanks for sharing my interest in early western writers, whose first novels and short stories I've been reviewing at BITS. For everyone who has said, "You should write a book," rest assured that 2013 promises to be the year that finally comes to pass. Looking at the manuscript that has grown, it may be more than one book--if not more than two.

A word of thanks also to the diligent bloggers whose posts I have enjoyed and learned from over the past 12 months. For those of you who also write fiction, I encourage you to continue giving heart and soul to your craft. There are few higher callings.

See you in the New Year!

  3. This is great news Ron! I'm very happy to hear that there may be more than one book. You could do one about the early western fiction plus one about western films. At any rate, I intend to buy and read whatever you decide to publish. We need more books about western fiction.

    And thank you for kicking off the New Year with some good news. You have a sale in me. You've opened my eyes to a genre that I'd previously ignored.

  8. A very happy New Year to you too!

    I noticed your bio that appears at the end of your short fiction says you're working on making a book out of the Old West glossaries. That's something I'd definitely be interested in!
