Authors this month:
Stephen Bly and Molly Noble Bull

By Molly Noble Bull

                     Throw the Devil Off the Train by Stephen Bly

On the twenty-seventh of each month, I write an article for a blog for readers and writers of western fiction called Bustles and Spurs.
My articles were always published right before Stephen Bly published his monthly article, and he often left comments after my posts. However, author Stephen Bly recently relocated to Heaven.
I will miss his kindness. But his talent for storytelling will go on and on. 
Below is a brief summary of his newest western novel titled Throw the Devil Off the Train.
It's 1880. Catherine heads west to marry her fiancé. She's desperate for escape and a change when she meets Race. He heads west determined to get justice for his dead brother, and Catherine and Race hate each other on sight. A holdup, hijack, kidnapping and gold mine swindle bring them together, and throwing the devil off the train is the only thing they agree on. Fiery, opinionated and quick to react, can they make peace long enough to get the job done?  

                         Brides and Blessings by Molly Noble Bull 

Brides and Blessings, my 1999 inspirational novels with a western setting, came out from Kindle on July 15, 2011, and the novel can be purchased as an ebook from Amazon for only $3.99. Click below. 

Brides and Blessings is set in the Texas hill country west of San Antonio and is about identical twin sisters separated at birth. One twin, Suzan, was born in California and is a movie star, and Suzan dreams of an ordinary life. Holly, the other twin, is a church librarian in a small Texas town, and she hopes to grow closer to her sister as well as help Suzan achieve her goal.
Suzan falls in love with a cowboy pastor by the name of Josh Gallagher, and he falls for her. But will he still love her once he learns her true identity?

When you see it, click on the word Kindle. Or click on the paperback version and buy and read Brides and Blessings in a paperback format.

Hi, Molly
I featured Stephen's book on my personal book review blog shortly before his death. He will be missed. I'm glad you mentioned the book on Writers' Rest.
It's awesome that your novel was re-released as an e-book, too!

Thanks for writing, Janet and Cecelia. Stephen Bly was/is such a big part of novels about the American west. And his books live on.

Thanks for the blog post. For many of us who grew up watching Westerns on TV and at the movies, plus reading them, they still have the same alure. I plan to go to Amazon/Kindle and check out your book Molly.

I've had a western suspense floating around in my head for years I'd love to see written. I'll be calling on you, Molly when I get started.
