Anybody who keeps up with the Western genre lately knows that a much-anticipated novel, The Tarnished Star by Jack Martin, aka Gary Dobbs at The Tainted Archive, has been set for release the end of this month. Well, I guess Black Horse Westerns couldn't wait to get it's fastest-selling publication ever out on the market, because it's out now. It's now available in the U.S. on Amazon.com. I ordered mine several months ago through The Book Depository, a U.K. outfit (which doesn't charge for shipping from the UK) and they notified me a few days ago that it was on its way.
The first review of The Tarnished Star can be found here.
And those of you who are looking for good ways to market your book, check out The Tainted Archive and the many ways that Gary has found to publicize The Tarnished Star. It's paid off, because it was one of the best-selling Westerns in the U.K. even before publication, a few months back.
Good luck to Gary and many thanks to someone who has tirelessly championed the Western genre for the benefit of all of us.
