The competition is getting fierce!

A few weeks ago, I appealed to you, dear readers, for your support for my Western novel ‘Brings The Lightning‘ in the Conservative-Libertarian Fiction Alliance‘s Book of the Year contest for 2017.

For several weeks, I was quite a long way ahead of the rest of the field.  However, in the past couple of weeks, supporters of John Ringo’s ‘Monster Hunter Memoirs:  Grunge‘ have caught up with me, and surpassed my total votes.  At this time, the voting looks like this:

I’m therefore appealing to all my readers once more.  If you haven’t yet voted in this contest, and you like my Western, please click over to the voting page and cast your vote for ‘Brings The Lightning’.  (Of course, if you think another book is more deserving of the win, please vote for that one!)  Voting is open until midnight on Friday, four and a half days from now, so please don’t delay too long.

This is turning out to be a lot of fun.  I think the CLFA hasn’t had anything like this many votes before.  Let’s run up the totals, no matter who wins!

(Oh – and, if you missed my post yesterday morning, the sequel to ‘Brings The Lightning’ should go on sale later this week!  We’ll see if it gets nominated for next year’s CLFA contest.)



  1. I already voted, dang it… Love the cover, but a cowboy without a hat??? I know, I know… Don't go there. 🙂

  2. Hey Peter;

    I already voted unless I am a democrat and I will vote again 🙂 I am waiting on number 2 to show up so I can read it. I reread number 1 so it would be fresh in my mind.

  3. Already voted.

    And on a tangentially related note, I just finished Rocky Mountain Retribution. It was great. Best western sequel I've read in years.
