Hey Book Dragons!

I’m organizing a tour for a unique novel called Crippled Jack by Boston Teran. “This coming of age novel takes on stigmas around disability as well as themes of social justice, diversity, and gender equality in the guise of a classic Western.” The tour will run from September 5th to the 9th and I have spots for reviews and promos. Physical ARCs are available depending on where you are located and of course we have digital ARCS as well.

Crippled Jack 

Expected Publication Date: September 5th, 2022

Genre: Revisionist Western/ Historical Fiction

CRIPPLED JACK is a revisionist western set against a landmark era in American folklore. Those were the years of poverty, homelessness and hatred between the classes.

In that time when bloodthirsty violence ruled the day a boy was bound and gagged and left to die in the desert. He was not yet nine and suffered what they called the palsy. There was a note pinned to his chest – It’s up to God now.

But the boy did not die. Fate and history merged in his will to live. He was found by a horseman who was at war with the profiteers of the day, the Czars of business, the masters of corporate avarice. He was known as – The Coffin Maker.

He became the star on the boy’s horizon. The boy would grow to become an expert marksman known as Crippled Jack. He will come of age during the labor wars that were consuming the West. His friends will be enemies of the state. He will come to love a woman who has escaped the orphan trains and is a reporter covering the bloodshed sweeping the nation.

Together they will usher in a new America. An America that has every intention of turning the country upside down, so that it may stand right side up.

CRIPPLED JACK transforms the classic American western into a scathing and violent protest novel. A war for social justice, for equality, and for hope – a war we’re still fighting today.

Coming Soon!
