Chris Scott Wilson's BHWs to be reprinted as e-books

Yorkshire Author Signs World-wide Six E-Book Deal with an American Publisher for Westerns (Coals to Newcastle?)

Today 24th November 2010 Boson Books of Raleigh, North Carolina USA are proud to announce they have signed Saltburn by the Sea author Chris Scott Wilson to an exclusive contract for six of his books to be distributed world-wide as E-books.

Probably best known in the UK for his local history books, Boson Publishers believe Chris’ westerns hold an authenticity which will appeal to readers world-wide. The first title is Double Mountain Crossing, which will be followed by further no-nonsense tales of the Old West. These titles are The Fight at Hueco Tanks, The Quantro Story, The Copper City and Desperadoes. The sixth E-book will be a maritime yarn, Scarborough Fair, originally published in the USA as a paperback and an audio book. It is a fictionalized account, based on fact, of the lead-up to, and the actual sea battle when John Paul Jones became America ’s first naval hero at Flamborough Head near Scarborough , during the War of Independence.

The author says: “I see westerns the same as any other historical fiction. They’re about people and their reactions to situations, often perilous.”

Chris adds, “If our parents’ generation grew up on Hollywood westerns, then my generation grew up on TV westerns. Wagon Train, Rawhide, Bronco Lane , Have Gun Will Travel and many others. We loved them. There’s something raw and exciting about a man, alone but for his Winchester and his horse, standing up to whatever that untamed country can throw at him.”

Double Mountain Crossing by Chris Scott Wilson is available now from Amazon and other leading on-line retailers.

Details available at the author's website here.
