    Tell us more about the plot line. Early 20th century revolver… 21st century knife…time travel involved as suggested by the title?

  • Rather than repeat it all here, have a look at my information site:

    that looks just like my old mark 6, nostalgia time. that was a fun gun to shoot, and you’d be suprised at the loads it would handle. 8.0 grains of the old hercules “unique” under a 185 grain sierra hollowpoint in .45 acp military brass didn’t faze it a bit. (yes, it had a conversion cylinder, along with the original .455 cylinder. i loaded the .455 brass with 6.0 grains of unique and a 225 grain cast bullet for plinking.) old times, good times.

    skimming your blog, you call the book as for the “early 20s adventure” reader, don’t be so sure about that limit, this old coot sci-fi reader says it looks like a fun read. will it be out in a mass market paperback any time soon? you might see if baen books would be interested, they do a lot of good adventure/space opera titles.

  • My load is 3.5 gr of 700x driving a 255 gr .454 cast lead slug.

    A nice mild load to shoot!

    Gunner- that was my target, but there is something for everyone!

    I want to build up a few more sales for the ebook- that gives me something to put on the table when selling it to a ‘dead-tree publisher’!

  • I can’t do the e-book, as my satellite server won’t handle the bandwidth. But I’m curious as to whether you’ve looked into the “publish on demand” companies, such as CreateSpace?;jsessionid=4E56851B5FB203AB1A1C281F11FF010D.cspworker01

  • I’ve had good experiences with Lulu ( ) as far as self-publishing. Sometimes, though the e-formats yield a better return. Best of luck to you.

  • I did look at POD, but where I live they all wanted $700-1000+ to format the book! All the offshore POD didn’t want to deal with off-shore authors (then!)

    The publisher I are now using has just signed on with Amazon, so POD may be an option in the near future.

    Thanks for the link!
