Wild West eMonday on the horizon

Now that eBook fiction is outselling printed fiction, now that the western is well represented in the new format, the Archive thinks it's time for another Wild West eMonday.

The original Wild West Monday initiative was set up to improve the visibility of the western, and few could argue that it didn't do so. And now that the digital revolution has become the digital domination, it may be even more important than ever to have another big push Westwards. We need to push the genre with events such as this which are always well supported , and in theory this one should be better than ever. We have new publishing houses like Piccadilly Publishing reissuing both classic and new material, we have people like Malcolm Davy who is now presiding over the reissue of the excellent Edge series by George G. Gilman, we have newcomers like Tony Masero and we have seasoned vets like Chap O'Keeke putting out his impressive backlist into the digital format -  the list goes on and on.  I'm sure I can nag and cajole many of these  western luminaries into writing posts for the next Wild West eMonday.



We'll have to rope in as many authors as possible to contribute with guest posts - what do you guys think? 


Anyone fancy another Wild West eMonday?

Below you will find a video trailer for the third Wild West eMonday which was held way back in 2009.
