Is this group for people who are from the country or people who ARE country, like cowboys and whatnot? :-?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey Of Faith, April 2, 2012
By Nanci Maynard "Nanci A Cornelius" (New York City)
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: Nerja (Kindle Edition)
This was an excellent short-short story. In fact, I finished reading it during my commute home on the subway.

The best way to describe this story is: It is a story about faith.

It involves two different men from two different cultures. One White and one... Show more

I only got a few issues, being in the UK. But I loved the stories not only fiction but real ones.

I used to write westerns a while back. I shall have to try again.

I don't remember the mag but please do come back and give us a good gun-slinging tale from the old west. There are so few on BookRix. I'll be happy to read it!

I know, it is a shame. I am not as good as my mate on here, Larry. As I say I am a bit rusty as well, been a long time out of the saddle, so to speak LOL.

Sharps were rather common too. There were not a whole lot of options until the late 1880s and '90s. Using a Sharps or even a Winchester in one of the less common calibers would make it different. As before, be careful on this ground, for example, while the 1873 Winchester was... Show more

Hey Glen and Gordo,
There is a site called Rope And Wire that you might be interested in. You can post stories at the website at https://www.ropeandwire.com and also there is a lot going on at the Social site at http://ropeandwire.ning.com. Come on over and join us. Look me up if you do.

As my grandad used to say, "It's dead as a door nail in here."

I am wondering now that I have about two-thirds of my next book written, if I should start editing it and posting it a bit at a time. I'm not sure if that will get me more reads or not. What's your thoughts? :-?

Just for kicks I entered the 100 Word Contest in the I Love Bookrix Writing Contests group. It was more difficult than I thought to get your thoughts across in just a hundred little words.

If you want to check it out, click on the Community tab at the top of the page and then on the I Love Bookrix Writing Contests tab. The entries are in Lineh Derderian's post "100 Word Story User Contest" Mine is #91 entitled The Homecoming... Show more

Got a chance to view an advance copy of the new movie 'Cowboys and Aliens' directed by Jon Favreau last night. I won't spoil the movie for those of you planning to see it but I have a question. Is the modern western genre dead? While the flick was entertaining as an action piece (and yes as a man...we gotta have action), it lacked, I don't know, "western appeal".

Maybe the writers didn't mean for it to be a western. But if so,... Show more

Y'all need to share with our group what you're current project(s) are so we can help support them. If you don't have anything in the works, give us some ideas or thoughts on westerns here on Bookrix in general...in other words, share some thoughts to help us band together. If we don't, the vampires are gonna take us over. :-X

My latest work in progress is the second in the "Luke Wallace" series. This story picks up a few... Show more

I think sci-fi and westerns are a great mix. Space is the new wild west and astronauts- the new cowboys.

I'm working on Book 2 & 3 of my Savage Land Series, Guns Of The Range Land and Return Of the Bounty Hunter. Book 1, Ride The Savage Land, has been contracted and is in the publisher's hands and I'm waiting for contact from the publishing editor.

Right now, I'm working on getting a literary agent for two of my books. I HATE queries! Those darn things are harder to write than the books themselves. :-/
The first book is, The Daughter, which is here on bookrix, sort of a Western Thriller/supernatural. And the other is a YA... Show more

Okay, time to pick this group up, and dust it off.
The Western Showcase is a place to show off a snippet off your best work, or for those of you who dont write, a scene from one of your favorite books, by catagory. I thought this week we'd start with SCENERY.
"The desert lay stretched out before him. Heat waves shimmered in the dry, dusty air, as a lone tumbleweed..."
You get the idea.

....The faint sight of a faded red stagecoach could be seen winding down the Denver road almost a mile away. From this vantage point, Slim had a clear view of the approaching target, though it was still well out of range. With the peaks of the high Rockies as a backdrop, the... Show more

Oh, I like it! I can picture the scenery perfect. Scenery has always been hard for me. I have the bad habit of skipping over it. :-/
By the way, I like the name. I can see it on a cover already ;-)

glenmarcus

I am learning not to skip over what I call the "details" also. Sometimes I think character descriptions are a stronger point of mine than the scenery around them. "gotta keep learning"...that's my motto :-D
