Brings the Lightning

Brings the Lightning by Peter Grant

When the Civil War ends, where can a former Confederate soldier go to escape the long memories of neighbors who supported the winning side?

Walt Ames, a former cavalryman with the First Virginia, is headed West with little more than a rifle, a revolver, and a pocket full of looted Yankee gold. But in his way stand bushwhackers, bluecoats, con men, and the ever-restless Indians. And perhaps most dangerous of all, even more dangerous than the cruel and unforgiving land, is the temptation of the woman whose face he can’t forget.


Rimworld: Stranded by J L Curtis

Senior Sergeant McDougal isn’t a combat troop, he’s a maintainer. He’s good at it, proud of his status, and on his first planetary detachment as the lead maintenance troop for an outpost.

But, when he gets stranded on a Rimworld that forms the DMZ between the Patrol and the Dragoons, his status doesn’t mean a thing…

Improvising, adapting, and trying like hell not to panic, he’s doing his best to fulfill the Patrol’s prime directive to destroy the portable stargate, and still get himself off the planet in one piece before the Dragoons get to him!

Yes, they’re both cross-genre new releases for the authors, and they’re good! Check ’em out! And if you want more to read after that, check out the Nearly Summer Indie Author Sale!


  1. Loved Peter’s new western, but then I love all his books.
    As to Jim’s latest, at .99 how could I resist dipping a toe on an author I’ve heard of but not yet read.
    Two remarks, not on the western, but on the reviews of it.
    Louie L’Amour wrote mainly back in the ’30s through ’50s. Naturally his style won’t be as modern as any current author. I do agree that Peter caught the essence of L’Amour’s style with a modern flair, and good on him, but denigrating L’Amour as I felt some of the commenters did is at least unwise.
    As for the term “gun nut” it is very much in the same vein as the “N” word. While firearms aficionados may use that term amongst themselves, its use by outsiders is highly offensive. Particularly in that the anti gun media seems to delight in its use at every opportunity.

  2. I too like Peter’s work. L’Amour is definitly an under appreciated author by most of the modern readers. The thing I like about Peter and find similar to L’Amour is that Peter has done a number of other things and imbudes his writing with those other endeavors. Having lived in some of those areas the descriptions of the enviroments come through the story really well. I will definitely be buying the rest of the series when it comes out. Now Peter can we get the next Laredo novel. 🙂
