    I would say my favourite length of read is normally novella to short novel length, 100-200 pages. It can be read quickly and has enough space to develop characters and ideas. That said all lengths and formats have their own advantages and disadvantages.

    Thanks, buddy! I'm glad you enjoyed LONG CHILLS and hope you like TIMBER GRAY when you get around to it. Plenty more available in my stable of Kindle Books and even more coming to e-book in 2014. Next year will prove to be a mighty prolific year for Ol' Ron, if the good Lord's willing.

    Hey Ron:
    I've read the first 11 chapters of "Timber Gray." I'm enjoying it. It's a very good book. This is usually the type of subject matter I don't read about.

    Actually, I'm considering writing a Timber Gray short story for an upcoming weird western anthology, in which Timber agrees to hunt down a creature that is far from his normal game of expertise...

    That sounds awesome! I would be well up for reading that if you write it Ron!!!!!!

    Great. I always felt there was more for us to know about this character and his past adventures.

    Hey Ron: I finished reading "Timber Gray" on my Kindle late Wednesday night. I liked the book a lot. Timber Gray was a very good well developed character. And, I liked how Ole Cripplefoot was wrapped up in an aura of mystery.

    I'm glad you enjoyed TG, hoss. I've been seriously considering writing more traditional westerns, as well as the weird/horror/western serial that I've had in mind for a long time (way back in 1992, in fact). Thunderstorm would be doing the serial... hopefully with illustrations by Alex McVey.

    You miss ghost writing as Jake Logan, Ron?
