Writer's Forum - Western feature

'I used to be one of four UK women writing westerns. There are many more now. Cowboys are cool.' Jill McDonald - Constable.

Nice to see an article in the new issue of Writer's Form, on sale now, that looked at the western genre. And doubly nice to see that the magazine spoke to three of my fellow Black Horse scribes - Nik Morton, Gil McDonald and D M. Harrison. The article took the approach of advising newcomers of the best way to break into the western genre, and each of the author's interviewed had some good sense advice to offer. There were also shout outs for Piccadilly Publishing, Robert Hale, Western Trail Blazer, Prairie Rose Publications and Solstice all of whom publish western fiction.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - the western is alive and well and continues to develop.

Nik, Gil and Diana - well done, guys!

Writer's Forum, issue 154 is on sale now £3.60

Glad to see the western is still alive over there.
