Someone at my house is trying to convince Santa he belongs on the "nice" list, not the "naughty" list. He's will to bribe people who'll vouch for him.

Kristin did a bang-up job on this post about where and how men wore their shootin' irons in the old west. Great reference material!
I’m a woman. I’ve never fired a gun (other than a BB gun when I was twelve). I read a lot of western historical romance and I write it too. When writing The Marshal’s Surrender (the most gun-intense book so far), I still had to do a lot of research to make sure my story stood on an accurate historical platform. Where did gunmen stash their Colt revolvers? What did their holsters look like? Did they wear a belt? What about a hidden, back-up gun (like gamblers always seem to have)? In this article, I share vintage photographs and an 1877 patent image, showing those of us unfamiliar with nineteenth century firearms what they looked like.

The Marshal’s Surrender releases in just 3 days! Coming 12-20-16.

Today would've been revered newsman Walter Cronkite's 100th birthday. Those of y'all who are too young to remember him missed a national treasure. His was a voice of reason in a chaotic world -- during the Vietnam war, especially. Cronkite served as a role model for generations of journalists, me among them. He created a sterling example we in the news biz too often forget.

+Carra Copelin's new novella is out today! FAITH AND THE TEXAS LAWYER is set in Galveston during the 1900 Storm, which still ranks as the deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history. You'd better believe I'm all over this one. :-D
OUT NOW! Time-Travel Romance Set in Galveston, Texas
FAITH AND THE TEXAS LAWYER, A Brides of Texas Code Series, Novella, Book 4 I've had this romance story in my head and heart since I visited Dallas' Heritage Park many years ago. There are old homes, churches, and examples of the city and life of yesteryear....

We're giving FIVE commenters on today's post their choice of anything PRP has published since its inception. Founders +Livia J. Washburn and +Cheryl Pierson are nothing if not generous.  :-)
Last day of the party, and you don't want to miss this one! Not one, but five lucky people will have a chance at any ebook in the companies library. There is something for everyone at PRP.
