Arkansas Smith very special offer

Arkansas Smith was my second western for Robert Hale Ltd - it was originally published in hardcover in 2010 and became available as an eBook in 2012.

Thanks to those nice people at Robert Hale and Amazon the eBook edition is now, for a limited period,  available from Amazon for 85p - that's a book, which remains my bestselling western and costs £12.99 in the hardback edition - the Kindle version saves you an incredible 93%. The eBook is also on special offer at the Amazon US store as well as everywhere else.

Now that's a bargain.

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this western, the second by Mr. Martin/Dobbs, the first being The Tarnished Star, and would recomnend it without a second thoughtIt carries you right along, and before you know it,  you've read the the whole thing and want more." Bloggincurly

"Another fine western from the master of THE TAINTED ARCHIVE." Not the Baseball Pitcher

"There is a sadness about Arkansas Smith that I found unsettling and yet compelling. He has a "void deep inside himself that felt on times like a cavity in his soul. It was a need for identity that would always be there and would never be fulfilled." He's a man of few words and when he smiles, it's a grim smile that hints at a lot of tragedies played out in the past. He is an enigma who keeps his personal history to himself and who doesn't offer up too many explanations. While we are caught up in the dilemma at hand, we are never allowed to forget that we are dealing with a mysterious man here who has a few bones to pick with the world. In the post-modern world, he would be diagnosed as clinically depressed. In the 19th century western, though, he's simply trying to deal with the hand that's been dealt him."
