    Contemporary Western Music and the Publishing of Westerns in Today’s Market

    in Books

    AUGUST 27, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio

    THEME: Contemporary Western Music and the Publishing of Westerns in Today’s Market


    Jim Jones - New Mexico Author and singer whose books and songs have educated, informed and entertained people around the world. Winner of the 2013 Western Writers of America  Spur Award for Western Song of the Year.

    Bob Clark- Editor-in-Chief of Washington State University Press, former Assistant Director/Publisher at the University of Oklahoma and Former past President and Owner of Arthur H. Clark Company


    Western music is not to be confused with Country music. Western music is a form of American folk music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. The Mexican folk music of the American Southwest also influenced the development of this genre.  With the Traditional Western being a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, television and music, getting "westerns" published and in the hands of fans can also be confusing and a challenge to understand. Tonight we learn about today's contemporary western music and about how today's publishing experts get the western genre to market.

    The Traditional Western is a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, and television. Westerns are devoted to telling stories set primarily in the latter half of the 19th century in the American Old West, hence the name. Many feature American Indians, bandits, cowboys, lawmen, outlaws, and soldiers, and as well as spectacular mountain scenery. Some are set in the American colonial era. There are also a number of films about Western-type characters in contemporary settings. Western Writers specialize in all types of western historical non-fiction, fiction and tales of the American frontier. Many consider the golden age of the historic west to have occurred for only three decades, from the end of the civil war to the beginning of the 20th century. Western fiction peaked during the 1960's and is still alive and well. Why are traditional Westerns still…a very a good read?
