New Story and Newsletter

We published some new fiction today. Off to War by Charles D. Phillips. It's a very well told story that is a good read as well. Stop by the site, you'll enjoy it.

I have found a new newsletter provider that allows me to send HTML formatted emails that includes images. It looks much more professional and is a lot easier to use. The only drawback is that with the service being free, it includes advertising. However, the ads are tastefully placed and don't take away from the newsletter at all.

Therefore, I will not be sending the current newsletter for very much longer and if currently receive it, you will need to re-subscribe in order to keep getting your updates. I will be sending out invites from the new provider in the near future, in the meantime you are welcome to re-subscribe on your own. There is a subscription box on the left hand side of the main page of the site for you to sign up. If don't subscribe to our current newsletter, sign up for our new one today.

Mike and I were recently interviewed by T.J. McIntyre. We answered a series of thought provoking questions dealing with the Western genre in general as well as our reasons for starting The Western Online. You can find our answers in the Western Writers community or on T. J. McIntyre's personal blog.

New Story at The Western Online

We published a new short story today at The Western Online. "Standing Up" by Gary Addis. Its a very good story that features an appearance by a famous gunfighter. Stop by the site and check it out, you won't be disappointed.

I've also added a new poll to the website that can be found in the menu column of the main page. The question I ask is: Would allowing reader comments on stories and artwork published at The Western Online be a good idea? Be sure to vote and let me know what you think.
