WESTERN WRITING: THE LITERATURE OF AMERICA’S SOUL AUGUST 7, 2014 - AUGUST 28, 2014
August 21, 2014
This Week's Theme: Writing Westerns for a Younger Audience
Interview Guests: Johnny Boggs and Nancy Plain
This week's Message: The “Western” is a genre of various arts, such as film, television, radio, literature, painting and others. When most of us think about Western literature, we think of writers devoted to telling stories set primarily in the late 19th century in the American Old West, hence the name. However, in today’s world of literature, the name “Western” can be misleading to some. Western literature is about yesterday, today and tomorrow. Western literature has many genres, including Fiction, Nonfiction, Juvenile, Juvenile Nonfiction, Poetry and even Music. Contemporary Western literature has become America’s unique brand of literature, now enjoyed throughout the world.
Throughout the month of August, Life Changing Talk Radio has teamed with the Western Writers of America, Inc. (WWA) to produce and broadcast four very special episodes. Each episode will include interviews with members of the WWA and will address several interesting and enlightening aspects of contemporary Western literature.
Western Writers of America, Inc., was founded in 1953 to promote the literature of the American West and bestow Spur Awards for distinguished writing in the Western field. The founders were largely authors who wrote traditional Western fiction, but the organization has swiftly expanded to include historians and other nonfiction authors, young adult and romance writers, and writers interested in regional history. Today the organization has over 650 members who write everything from mainstream fiction to local history.

Who’s on first! What’s on Second! I don’t know is on third.
Perhaps the best written and remembered comedic skit of all time, performed by the greats Bud Abbot and Lou Costello, this is a great description to the confusion, misinformation and outright fraud that is now part and parcel of the newly democratized world of publishing.
Now that you've joined the 80% of Americans who think they have a book in them, you had better learn the game before you get up to bat!
Continuing with the baseball metaphor: Self-Publishing and the internet certainly opened the gate for you to get onto the field, but the tenfold increase in published books has also helped the crooks, so the publishing game just got bigger—not easier!
