Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the rib-tickling YA historical novel “Winner Take None” by Placitas, New Mexico author Greg Comer. “Winner Take None” is Mr. Comer’s first published novel.

Can a 14-year-old orphan out-con a heartless bunch of rustlers, hustlers and railroad thugs? When Deuter Seebea loses his family and only friend on the way to Oregon in 1879, he has no place to go, and nobody to turn to. He flees his friend’s murderer and ends up in Railstop, a shantytown in Montana Territory that’s populated by ne’er-do-wells, shady ladies—and a maniacal cat named MaryBelle.

Deuter quickly learns the hard way that if he wants something done, he’ll have to do it himself—and watch his own back. He soon discovers that the conniving residents built Railstop directly in the path of the approaching FI&R Railroad line for the sole purpose of extorting a windfall settlement. When the payoff finally comes, however, it’s every man, woman, and cat for themselves in a ruthless—and hilarious—quest for wealth, glory, and hootch whiskey. Winner take all, or winner take none, Deuter is willing to fight and scheme for his unfair share of the spoils.
