Upstate SC Author GP Hutchinson Launches New Western Novel



Greenville, SC, March 11, 2015 - Upstate South Carolina author GP Hutchinson will be celebrating the launch of his new Western novel, Strong Convictions (CreateSpace, paperback, $12.99), with a book talk and signing at Fiction Addiction on Saturday, March 28th, at 2pm. This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs to are requested.


Strong Convictions


Crossing ethnic barriers cost Emmett Strong the life of his young wife, Gabriela. When she was shoved into the path of his bullet during a dispute over their love, it was enough to make him think twice before ever drawing his pistol again.


But he must overcome that hesitation when outlaw Charlie Blaylock shoots Strong's brother dead right in front of him. Strong, now a Texas Ranger, joins up with Gabriela's brother, Juanito, and the Englishman Granville Sikes to catch the killer and bring him to justice. It's a ride that gives them more than they bargained for when they learn that Blaylock is hiding out with wealthy and powerful kin.


Justice, it turns out, isn't the only thing Strong is after. He finds love again with Li Xu, a Chinese immigrant's daughter kidnapped by a band of desperados. That's double jeopardy for those who stand in Strong's path, but he must think fast if he plans to both save the girl and avenge his brother.


Enjoy the action in Strong Convictions, a rip-roaring Western by author GP Hutchinson. It's a wild ride through the West with a multiethnic cast and a surprising twist ending.
