MONDAY 22ND December 2008 is WILD WEST DAY
Let's make this interweb thingie work for us.
To all readers of the Tainted Archive, we need to join virtual hands to show publishers and booksellers how popular the western genre is. Most major bookshops don't stock westerns these days, least that's the case in the UK.
So what I've got in mind is that this coming Monday everyone goes into their local book shop and asks why there isn't a western section and then request to order a new western. Mention the Black Horse Western books from Robert Hale Publishers and also visit the local library and request a better western section than they currently have.
What other genre can give us so much mystery, romance, danger, suspense?
Bloggers with an interest in westerns please link to this post on your blogs and publicise this event. If demand increased then the publishers will answer - such is the nature of the business.
