Sept. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- Brighton Publishing LLC has signed Robert D. Jones for his debut novel, “Winchester: One of One Thousand” scheduled for release in mid-2012.

A construction worker unearths a skeleton underneath a giant boulder. Nearly destroyed, the only real clue it yields is a rifle, still intact, clutched in the desiccated bones of its hand.
The rifle is a Winchester Repeating Arms 1873, one of just one thousand specially made which sold for more than five-times the cost of an average Winchester rifle. And from the New York shop, this particular rifle begins its amazing journey across America; first in the hands of a Belgian immigrant just hours in the New World.

Before being unearthed more than a century later, this rifle will have eight owners, and will traverse the early West in a remarkable story unlike anything readers are likely to have before encountered. From the beginning, we know where the rifle will end up; but the “how” and the “why” is a tale worth reading, and then worth reading again.

Like Zane Grey and the masters of Western fiction before him, Robert D. Jones has real finesse with words, with history, and with time that is difficult to equal. There is a reverence for the period evident in his writing which makes it all the more pleasurable to read his story, as if it were true and coming direct from a great-grandfather who might himself have carried the rifle in his youth.

“In ‘Winchester,’ Robert Jones has written not just a great Western tale, but a great American story,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “His imagination is so full that readers are transported back in time and place, right into the story. Jones ranks right up there with Jack Finney and Caleb Carr in his vivid depictions of an America that now exists only in picture books and novels, and his growing legion of fans is a testament to the strength of his work.”
