From Chap O'Keefe
I've just loaded a new excerpt to the chapokeefe site. It's here, http://chapokeefe.webs.com/bhehel/ , and it's taken from Shootout at Hellyer's Creek, which was the first Joshua Dillard novel, written in 1992 and published originally as a BHW with one of my favourite covers by Salvador Faba. I've re-used that cover to head the excerpt and a new cover, by Gordon Crabb, as a tailpiece.
The new cover, which I also like, will be on the Dales Western trade paperback edition that Magna Large Print Books will be publishing in about a month's time. I'll also be writing about the Joshua Dillard series in the next Black Horse Extra, which is now only two or three weeks away. The big news for that, of course, is Matt Mayo's breakthrough into the Leisure Books mass market. With the immediacy of the Net, and an ever-increasing number of western blogs and websites, most people will already have seen the main details but Matt has kindly sent me a few more.
Hellyer's Creek is one of those BHWs you sometimes see offered for silly prices by dealers on Amazon Marketplace and similar. As Joshua's exploits multiply, it seems to become more sought-after. I hope the Dales edition will allow more people to read it, perhaps putting in orders now at their local libraries.
Hope you enjoy the excerpt. FIND IT HERE
