Hattie's Heroes

BWL Publishing Inc.


Hattie Carson leaves an orphanage that has been her home for years to embark on a trip to California with the Franklin family. How can tending three children be as challenging as ten times that many? A passel of surprises await, including meeting the handsome young man Mr. Franklin hired as an extra hand. It doesn’t take long before Hattie’ll do anything for Billy Monroe, including jumping into a fast-moving river to escape death at the hands of Indians. Billie Monroe really expected to be overrun by a war party when he advised Hattie to swim for safety. Now she’s gone and it’s his fault. The life he planned with her in California is nothing more than a dream…the same dream Hattie’s having while she reads an old faded journal detailing the wagon train’s trip and the past she’s been convinced doesn't really exist.

---

Ginger Simpson has penned a heart-warming, tender story filled with romance, adventure, history, conflict, and danger. The reader immediately cares about Hattie, the viewpoint character, and her eventual fate. The minor characters, especially the two heroes, also spring to life, practically jumping off the pages of the e-reader. This is a novel I couldn't put down. Bravo, Ginger Simpson!

The Death and Life of Strother Purcell

Goose Lane Editions


The return of the western — with a definite Canadian twist. The man, the myth, the gun-toting legend.

The man, the myth, the one-eyed legend: a frontier epic for fans of Ron Rash and Cormac McCarthy.

In 1876, the fabled lawman Strother Purcell disappears into a winter storm in the mountains of British Columbia, while hunting down his outlawed half-brother. Sixteen years later, the wreck of Purcell resurfaces – derelict, homeless and one-eyed – in a San Francisco jail cell. And a failed journalist named Barrington Weaver conceives a grand redemptive plan. He will write Purcell's true-life story. All it requires is a final act…

What unfolds is an archetypal saga of obsession, lost love, treachery, and revenge, told in Ian Weir's trademark funny, fast, wickedly intelligent style. A deadpan revisionist Western, refracted through a Southern Gothic revenge tragedy, The Death and Life of Strother Purcell is a novel about two cursed brothers, a pair of eldritch orphans, the vexed nature of truth, and the yearnings of that treacherous sonofabitch the human heart.

---

"A fascinating and insightful commentary on how stories are built and on our determination to see them come to light. Strother strides on the page — epic and tragic — a man trapped in the myths of manhood and gunslinging, a man of a bygone era who cannot allow bygones to be just that."

---

"Masterfully crafted storytelling, witty and pacy and scratchy with grit. When it comes to the "Canadian Western," Ian Weir thrills and heartbreaks in similar ways as Guy Vanderhaeghe, and if that all sounds like a good time, it is."

---

"A literary exegesis on truth disguised as rollicking, tragic Western entertainment. Cain and Abel and the Sisters Brothers got nothing on towering Strother Purcell and his club-footed half-brother. When lies are this well loved, they transform into truth and truth into history."

---

"Weir takes every trope in the Western's playbook — the one-eyed avenging lawman, the feckless brother, tarts both with and without hearts, gunslingers, gimps, and gamblers — and makes of them something new and utterly wonderful. This wildly entertaining and witty yarn made me gasp, hoot, and holler."

Pete Hackett: Wie ein Rudel Bluthunde

Pete Hackett: Nimm den Stern, Shannon

Die Sonne brannte vom Firmament und verwandelte die Main Street von Clovis in eine Gluthölle. Im knöcheltiefen Staub glitzerten winzige, silberne Kristalle. Dud McPherson, der Sheriff der kleinen Stadt, trat mit dem Gewehr in den Fäusten auf den Vorbau seines Office. Er hielt die Winchester schräg vor seiner Brust. Seine Hände hatten sich regelrecht daran festgesaugt. Der hagere, falkenäugige Mann schaute sich um. Jeder Zug in seinem zerklüfteten Gesicht verriet Anspannung.

Jeden Moment mussten Jesse Elliott und seine beiden Kumpane auf der Straße erscheinen. Und dann würden die Waffen das letzte Wort sprechen ...
