We've done it before and we'll do it again.
The Archive has picked up many new readers since the last Wild West eMonday and so a recap is in order.
Read on as we spill the beans on Wild West eMonday....
Despite what some may say the western has not died, nor has it ever really gone away. It's true that the genre is not as visible as it was a few decades ago when our bookshops were filled with western novels, our TV schedules dominated by small screen oaters while their bigger brothers played regularly on the cinema screen.
Yep, you kids remember the western - your dads and grandad's uses to liked them!
|The western is HOT!!!!|
The western is hot.
The western is where it's at.
The object behind Wild West eMonday is to show just how hot the western is, by encouraging people to try the genre, and to show support by buying a western next Monday. To lead up to the big day we will have nothing but western related posts on the Archive and believe me it'll be amazing.
We've got a new Cash Laramie story lined up, contributions from many many genre luminaries and some damn fine surprises in store for you lucky Archive readers.
We'll also be heavily promoting several western eBooks that we know will provide enjoyment to seasoned and new western readers. Each will be an example of excellence in the genre and each will show how varied the genre can be. It's not all cowboys and Indians, you know. The western is a genre that is flexible enough say something about the way we live our lives today, about the world we live in and the human condition itself.
Of course it can also be super cool shoot outs, buxom babes and thrilling adventure.
