The Man Who Shot Thomas Edison... at last!

Fans of "West of the Warlock" have been patient with me to bring out the third installment in this fantasy western series, and at long last that patience will be rewarded.  Coming in August, readers will finally be able to buy "The Man Who Shot Thomas Edison" in paperback or for the kindle!  The final formatting is complete for the book, and I should have the proof copy to review later this week.  Therefore, the book is now available for pre-order here.

This book was completed way back in 2012, and was part of the original trilogy contracted by Hall Brothers Entertainment for publication.  I was hoping to get this book into print sooner, but with all the responsibilities of running Martinus Publishing, it had to wait.

Now, for your viewing pleasure, here is the front cover artwork by Paul Milligan:

It's great to have the same artist on all 3 West of the Warlock book covers, and I'm glad that we were able to maintain the similar "pattern" to the three pieces.

This book will bring back the same characters you've come to enjoy (Sheriff Doliber, Ron Grimes, Joella Talus, Solen Lucca, just to name a few), and we'll get to meet some new ones who add new flavor to the wild west the way it wasn't.  I guarantee you, it won't be the last, as the fourth book is already written, and a fifth is also in the works.  The release date of these sequels will be contingent on sales of The Man Who Shot Thomas Edison.  If it sells well (breaks even), I'll be more inclined to get the next book out, so be sure to spread the word!

Unlike the first two books in the series, this one will be missing the editing talents of A.C. Hall.  I hope he's still finding time to write, and that I'll get to see some more of it one of these days.

So, who's fired up to read The Man Who Shot Thomas Edison?
