For four years this project has been in the works. I am a new author and look forward to the bumpy road ahead.
My Hot New Release, From the Ashes, an Action Packed, Fantasy Western by David Michael Karder. “Chicago 1871, a city burned unrestrained. In a sea of people, a boy stood alone. Witness through his mind’s eye; the transformation from youth to one of the fiercest gunman of the Wild West.”DMK.
Author Don G Porter says, “Storytelling with no shortage of action, delivers a fresh spin to the turn of the century.”
What you can count on with, From the Ashes.
From the author: “Many events molded and transformed this country at the end of the century. My goal is to put the reader in the boots of the main character, David Murphy. To provide an experience of what it was like to live life beginning in the 1860’s and Chicago’s great boom.” David Michael Karder.
A writer of western lore, Vernon Shields has ambition to write a book that will define his career. He meets a remarkable gunfighter and procures permission to write the gunman's life story.
An Era evaporated as fast as it emerged. The blazing guns of the west stretched from the civil war to the turn of the 1900’s. These guns and the people who mastered them ran their own destiny. Most men died as fast as they drew the steel. However a few walked the walk and lived to tell a tale of quick draw, ambush, killing, and the physical challenges of life itself. The tale told is a strong drink of gunfights, women, lust and adventure; with a chaser saturated by the demands of the heart, the anguish of a tortured soul and a demon’s haunting of the mind. The towns blended together. David Murphy’s status as a gunslinger continued to grow and feed the beast of rumor and conflict.
David struggled, unable to remember the last time it was possible to sleep through the night. Peace and tranquility evasive, unobtainable, teasing and just out of reach at every turn. The silence screamed, physically worn, unable to break out. Submit and bow to the unrestrained tormentor of his soul, or continue the battle? Chase the spirits in the wind, or ignore the cries of broken souls?
In his own words, ‘From the Ashes’ is the life of the drifter known as, Longhair.
Un-Complicate, loosen up, today is a new day if one can release yesterday to the winds.” DMK.
