Howdee dodee folks! Me again! Hope you are all well?

Not much to talk about today, only that my first 'fan' (a man from up the street) turned up on my doorstep yesterday, clutching a copy of my book, and asked me to sign it for him! I've arrived! YAY!

Oh, and I'm 'doing' some 'coffee and chat' mornings, and some talks, in all the libraries in the area (a total of about twelve in all) starting with Accrington Library, on the 19th of July. No dates for the others yet, but will put them on here as I get them.

Tat's all for now folks, pop back again.
Meantime, do take care.

Hello again folks. I'm a happy bunny today, I was trawling through the 'net, (as you do) yesterday and found a brilliant review for my book.

It was posted in by someone called Steve M. (Not a friend or a relative, or even a casual acquaintance).

He says in part -  '(Amos Carr's) writing style is very readable and I soon became swept up in the story, as I needed to find the answers to the many questions the author hooked me with. Action scenes, descriptions of places and emotions, and dialogue, are all handled expertly and provided me with an entertaining read.' 

How about that! And I didn't even have to bribe him!  Now I feel like a 'real' author.

See you soon!

New Bullets on the go.

Howdy all! 

I'm working on my fourth Western now, already four chapters in (don't ask how many words, I haven't done a count yet, sorry).

Numbers 1 and 2 were accepted for publication straight away, unfortunately though, number 3 came back, not enough 'action' for them. I had concentrated more on the Romance of it, and veered away from the bullets, so it came back, (boo hoo). I will be altering some of it, and sending it off again, either back to Hale, or maybe I'll just LURVE it up a bit more, and send it off to a Romance publisher, who knows?

However, I have already got into this next one, so that will have to wait a while, which is okay, as the main body of it is done, so I just have to make a few alterations, instead of re-writing the whole thing.

I do enjoy writing the Westerns, but you know, sometimes I do find myself thinking, 'if only he had a mobile phone, he could get help quickly'. or - 'if he jumped in a car, he could catch them easily'. How much we rely on technology these days, without even thinking about it!

My number 1 book, 'The Ghosts of Poynter' is out on general sale now, and already doing quite well, thanks to all who got it on pre-order. Number 2, 'Crazy Man Cade' will be out in October, and to my mind, it is a better read than the first. I think that could be because there is one character in it who I really enjoyed writing (and it's not the actual hero!) That character keeps on coming back into my head and asking me to write his story. So I will be doing that. In fact I have the 'skeleton' of his story already written, so just have to flesh it out at some point later.

Here is a picture of my very first reader! And no, she isn't a family member, or close friend. (yet).

Okay folks, I'd better be off to the range, and get on with number 3. (No title for that yet, but it's going well up to now). See you all next time!
