The Wind Up Kid review
Ron Fortier released an e-book novella recently that really
captured my attention. ‘The Wind Up Kid’ is a steam punk western that was some

One of the best parts about all of this is that ‘The Wind Up
Kid’ is only .99 for your kindle. It was well worth reading and was the type of
fun story I really like a lot. I can’t recommend this one enough, it’s a great
story that brought a smile to my face. It was just fun!
