Meet the Author

Born in Ohio, and moved to Arizona as a young boy, B.K. Gore found at a young age on that Sonoran Desert, that along with the long views of Far Country, he had a love for story telling. That creates a problem for a young fella though. The trouble with youth, for a writer, is a shortage of experience. Life experience being the raw materials which a writer needs to build his stories, it makes writing a tougher go for the young.As a teenager, his first love was horses and cowboyin'; with no way to make a living, telling stories, having occurred to him anyway.The years took him from wrangling and cowboying as a teenager, through two hitches in the U.S. Army; from which he was evicted after he got busted up and the army claimed he was too stove up to soldier any more. So, he went back to cowboyin' for a good number of years, 'cause he was too dumb to do anything else!Mixed in there, before, in between and after the army, was a stint in the copper mines of Arizona, the oil fields in New Mexico, more ranches and farms, and even a few runs at carpet cleaning, selling hardware, driving truck and producing custom leather goods. Whatever it took to pay the bills.In between the town jobs, were the ranches, farms and bull studs, where the horses, cows and mules, always pulled him back.All along the way, unrealized at the time, he was amassing a stock of experience from which to carve new stories, and honing his skills at spinning those tales.It wasn't until he crossed over onto the shady side of the mountain, that he recognized that people seemed to actually enjoy his stories, and and at the same time, stumbled upon the vehicle he could use to present his tales to the public.So now, he spends his time, building his tales of Honor, Betrayal, and Lonely Courage, wherever he sets his boondock camps.He is a, Vagabond, story telling, cowboy biker, living on the road, and banging around the west he loves.

    Excellant

    Very good story. Finished it in just a few hours because i couldnt put it down. Although one poster complained there were no chapter breaks, my book had chapter breaks and no formatting errors. I guess im not a grammar nazi so i dont go nitpicking looking for little things to complain about. I just read for enjoyment and this was a truly good book. Will look for more from this author. Highly recommend.

    Great Read!!

    You don't have to be a Western reader to enjoy this book. Suspenseful, easy flowing, riviting book. Gore manages to play with your mind in a delightful maner. Just when you think you have it figured out a new twist jumps out!

    Very engaging freshman effort

    This was an enjoyable read for me. Felt very Zane Grey-ish. Gore's love of all things cowboy, and all things honorable, really comes through. It's easy to root for the good guys in this story!

    A couple of complaints, which I have with many self-published books:
    1 -- Smashwords needs to do a better job of formatting their publications. There's no chapter navigation for the nook, and there are no page breaks between chapters. Sure, the second item is a nit, but it's those little things that make a big difference in perception.
    2 -- The text contains some errors that better editing would clear up. Not a ton of them, but a few. Readers need to be able to get past those to enjoy the story.

    Even with those complaints, A Matter of Honor is probably the best self-published book I have read, and I'm truly looking forward to the sophpmore novel from Mr. Gore.

    Great

    Enjoyed the characters, the storyline, and the humor. This is my second read by this author, and am looking forward to the third one.

    Great book

    I just finished the book and have already purchased the second in the series. The story centers around a war weary cowboy who tries to stand his ground and protect his ranch from a powerful bully. I don't normally read "Westerns" but, after having read and thoroughly enjoyed two other novels by this author, I had to give this one a chance. I wasn't disappointed. This man has a way with words and his characters are warm and totally charming.

    Seemed to go on and on and on and never got anywhere. 464 pages

    This free 464 page book seemed to go on forever and never got anywhere. It was a clean read, with a lot of burning things down, blowing things up, and shooting men. Over and over and over. I liked the Zane Grey books, I read them when I was about 11. I started reading when I was almost three years old. I do not think this book was anything like Grey's, unlike another reviewer. There were some editing problems, mostly punctuation. A few mild curse words, a lot of killing and a bit of romance and humor. I would have rated it higher, but it was the same actions repeated until it became tedious and made the book over long. For ages 16 and up. More for men, than women.
