Hymns of the West Blog Tour

Today I’m pleased to introduce you to my guest author, Faith Blum:

For those who do not know me (which is probably most of you), my name is Faith Blum. I have been writing for a long time. I don’t remember exactly when I started, but it was probably around the time I could write legible sentences. I’ve written in a lot of different genres over the years including, light fantasy, historical fiction, contemporary fiction, westerns, mystery, and a very tiny bit of science fiction.

But, for the most part, I have stuck with Westerns. Why is this? Because it is my favorite genre to read and it is hard to find good, clean Westerns. I also love history and the time period I have been most fascinated by is the Civil War and Wild West eras. I like the genre because of all the possibilities for stories. The Westward expansion had so many strong people, growing cities, outlaws, good guys, fights, romances, and so much more. There is so much potential. Yes, a lot has already been written in the Western genre, but I hope I have managed to write novels and novellas that bring a fresh idea and/or perspective on Westerns.

Thank you for having me here and for reading this post. Please read below for a little bit about my three newest publications.
