Ponder releases second novel
The Appalachian Cowboy is a new paperback novel written by Anthony E. Ponder. He is a Madison County native and author.
This story begins in 1879 in the fictional West Texas town of Los Villas. Junior Justus is the main character. He is searching for his newspaper reporter brother, Josh. They are from Madison County, although the county name does not appear in the story.
“Finding an authentic backdrop for a gunfight posed a problem,” Ponder said. “There are not many places in our area with an old west setting. Ghost Town in the Sky in Maggie Valley was the perfect and perhaps only location. Ms. Alaska Presley graciously permitted me and YAV Publisher, Christopher Yavelow, to gain access to this gated property. On Christmas Eve 2019, the book cover photos were taken in gorgeous 72 degree weather.”
His books may be purchased online from Amazon, Walmart, or ordered from your favorite bookstore. The Appalachian Cowboy is also available through Kindle ebooks.
