Texas Past – New Kindle Western Novel



Texas Past

Texas bred some hard men, but few men were as tough as Luke Adams. He grew up jerking a Navy .44 from the front of his pants as a kid, and could hit a rabbit on the run by the time he was twelve. Luke left home early and headed for Texas where he worked for awhile as a marshal for a small town, then went to work as a cowboy on a large ranch.

One white hot Texas day, Luke is with another cowboy at a line shack when they are confronted by the son of a local rancher and two other riders. The two cowboys are falsely accused of rustling. A fight breaks out and when it's over, the son of Amos Briner is dead beside his horse.

Luke leaves Texas with some hired gunmen on his trail. He also learns he is wanted by the Texas Rangers. Luke evades his pursurers, crosses over into New Mexico Territory, and for over a year, manages to stay hidden. In fact, he even teams up with three other men and they buy a ranch. But one day, trouble rides back into his life in the form of several gunmen who ride into town looking for him. Amos Briner rides with them.

Briner and his gunmen will eventually wish they'd never have found Luke Adams. Some will not live to have any regrets.

This is a nearly 200 page action-paced western adventure story. There's not a boring page in the book. If you like westerns, you'll like this one. Even the Dean of Western Fiction, Louis L'Amour, would have enjoyed this tale of the Old West.
Footnote: A gunslinger in the Wild West was fairly uncommon. A cowboy chasing “cow critters” could be found throughout the Old West. In western books, historical fiction novels, or western novels, the western cowboys are a dime a dozen . (Maybe that’s where the phrase “dime novel” arose.)

Cowboy stories were common on the western open range, and those cowboys told a lot of those stories, but cowboy novels were not. A “cowboy western,” was pretty uncommon during the early days of western novels. Usually, the greatest westerns were about some gunslinger in the Old West, or a marshal or sheriff made larger than life, or a mountain man or Indian fighter (such as Buffalo Bill).

This western book is another western fiction novel of the highest caliber, an action packed adventure from Brevia Books by Voyle Glover, an author one reader said “reminds me of Louis L’Amour’s books. He was my favorite when it came to westerns.”


Get this brand new, exciting novel today! It’s  now on Kindle. If you’re western fiction fan, you’ll love this one. It’s one of those “page turners” and only gets better the further you go. If you like  westerns done in the tradition of Louis L’Amour, this will be a perfect fit for you on your Kindle.

    “The Last Frontier”, Isabel Laso novel. Is a historical drama set in an idyllic western which tells of the injustice as a trigger for the affirmation of a human being. The novel takes place between the Far West and Ireland. Under the scheme apparently typical of a western, we are led through a personal search you just rewarded with a beautiful story of unexpected love. The romance impossible at first is a major theme of the drawings that each corner is taking the narrative. Something that the author began writing as a film and ended up turning into a novel.

    Good Morning:

    I really like how you designed your website. Although my genre is writing ghost stories, I have also written a western romance book and would like to make it into a Kindle format but have no idea who could make it into such a file.

    Could you refer me to a service who can make my book into a kindle file?

    Thank you.

    I am the author of a recently published western story entitled “HUNTSVILLE–A Novel of Post Civil War Texas”.
    Outskirts Press,Inc. of Denver CO guided me through the self publishing process. And they have made my book of historical fiction available through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
    Please tell me how, and at what cost, my book could be added to those you market through your website, and what I could expect to get out of it. Thank you,
    Glynn Rogers

    Doc, let me know how you like it–but keep me in the dark if you don’t like it :)

    Not at the moment. Decision was made by publisher to begin with Kindle and if the book is well received, to move to print. If you sign up for one of the free ebooks, you’ll be on the list to get notice if the book goes into print
