Written by Charles James and based on events from his own life, this bold coming-of-age story is proving to thousands that dreams and change will always prevail over hardship. With such pertinence to modern society, the novel is poised to resonate with readers around the world.


Medford, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/06/2013 -- Coming-of-age stories have long been a staple of the literary landscape. However, unlike most, the latest offering from Charles James boasts the power and emotion that can literally change readers’ lives forever.

Based on his own life, James’ ‘The Tarnished Shooter’ pulls no punches in driving its message home with gusto.


Threatened to have a "rifle wrapped around his neck," Frank Henry Barker is in a position where he has to make a split-second decision that could have life changing effects.

This story of adversity, adventure and the consequences of the choices one makes, is based on actual events.

As the author explains, his narrative boasts an abundance of real-world value.

“This isn’t just a story; it’s an exposé of the real long-terms affects of abuse. It isn’t from the imagination, either. Facets of my own life have driven the narrative to be as vivid and compelling as possible,” says James, a tireless advocate for abused children.

Continuing, “It’s graphic with adult language, it’s up-close and personal and I’ve held nothing back. Readers will explore the many masks people wear in an attempt to come out on top. Having survived many life endangering situations in the seedy part of town I grew up in, I have first-hand knowledge of the skills it takes to survive in any situation.”

Compiled into three hundred nail-biting pages, James is promoting his book to readers from all walks of life.

“It isn’t just a book of solace for the abused. Anyone will appreciate the illuminating insight into the life of those suffering adversity. I hope they will become more sensitive to those in need and drive action to ensure everyone is afforded the happiness and freedom they deserve,” he adds.

With the book’s popularity increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
