Some writers confuse Western as in a novel with a setting from the West as opposed to its real meaning, which is "Cowboy, hot cowboys". 😅

I'm guilty of this.

Some great selections, but I wish @Renee Stevens would get back in the saddle and write a full blown Western rom-com!

Thanks, DaddyDaveK! Though I honestly don't even know what that would look like. I haven't written really anything new in over 7 years! @Mann Ramblings thinks I should take up the challenge though, lol.
