National Day of the Cowboy Ebook Giveaway Winners

I am proud to announce the Ebook Giveaway winners for the National Day of the Cowboy Blogathon. First and foremost, all authors that were involved will receive a copy, as well as NDOC president Bethany Braley. Thank you for all of the support, and great posts this week in honor of the our American Cowboy.

How this giveaway worked was if you had commented on my blog I compiled all of your names together to randomly select each winner, however there were not enough comments to go around for the amount of winners I had selected, so I also gathered names from the facebook likes, and comments on the event, as well as western writers of America group, Western book readers, Old West, and Western Movie groups as well. If you commented on my blog you won simple as that 13 comments for 13 books. Once all other names were compiled, I recruited my wife to randomly select without my knowledge to keep things fair, 7 more names to compile the 20 winners in this weekends giveaway. If you did win you will receive Laramie’s Code as soon as I have all email addresses in.  As promised you will also receive Laramie’s War as soon as it is complete, with all of the hard work this week to make sure things went smoothly, I did not get the time to collaborate the finish of the book with smashwords. I am hoping to have it complete no later than Aug 15th. Once completed all winners will receive their copy of that book as well. I want to apologize for that delay.  It would also behoove you to leave a quick comment here listing the Ebook format you need for the book, for your personal enjoyment. So without further adieu.
Saturdays winners are as follows:
Ron Scheer, Janna Shay, John the Critter, Diane Cantara, Lakenya Kolpits, Kathy Pooler, David Morris, Virginia Cambell,
Robert Pohle, and Sierra Delis.

Sundays winners are as follows:

National Day of the Cowboy Blogathon, and giveaway

July 28th marks the 8th Annual National Day of the Cowboy, as a western writer and author I am announcing some exciting news that I will be contributing to this great and wonderful day of preservation of  America’s Cowboy heritage by having a Ebook giveaway of two short stories. Laramie’s Thunder is coming along very well, but I want my audience to know my character, Laramie Taylor, so I am going to be giving his first adventures away all day on July 28th and 29th.
 Also Most importantly I will be guest hosting  other western authors all that week beginning July 23rd, with there story about The Old West Cowboy, and their feelings on the NDOC becoming a national Day, as well as sharing their blogs, books, and material with you. Some authors that will be attending are Ken Farmer, Tyler Brentmore, Larry Payne, J.J. Devine, Phil Dunlop, Matt Pizzolato, and Steven Law. My intention is to honor them as cowboys, and cowgirls, and honor their wonderful work and contributions to the western heritage, and the American cowboy.
I am also working hand in hand with the NDOC blog, and organization, and am hoping to come up with something very special for my readers, the American Cowboy, and my new western writer PALS above that I have become rather acquainted with in recent months. Blogs will be appearing here on shotgunborivers.com, cowboywithacause.com, and possibly http://nationaldayofthecowboy.com/wordpress/, as well as links posted at each authors blog.

Following the NDOC week I will be launching my August Blog Book tour where I will be promoting my book Rodeo Dayz, and the first two Ebooks “The First Adventures of Laramie Taylor Laramie’s Code”. So join us all in a week long celebration,  as we celebrate the heritage of the American cowboy, and honor some of the greatest men and women who pioneered the Old West.

On Saturday July28th and Sunday 29th 10 winners will be picked each day at random from comments, and reviews of the weeks blogs and given the first two Ebooks of  “The First Adventures of Laramie Taylor Laramie’s Code” a ten short story book series to begin in July.

 

We are looking forward to helping with this great celebration, and  hope to help make NDOC a national day celebrated everywhere. Until then, Happy Trails.

Please submit your name below for a chance to win a copy of my book. Thanks Ritchie White “Bo Rivers”

 

Darkness fell over the clouds,

Like an emotionless shroud.

The fires continued burning, fearless.

The explosions would progress.

I could feel the heat from my gun.

Inside I felt like I wanted to run

But where? bullets flew all around.

There was no where to go,

The images were profound.

I still see it everyday.

So heartbreaking I don’t even say

Before I could react,

My best friend lay

In my arms from the attack.

His clothes soaked in blood,

It felt like a raging flood

He said to me don’t let go,

I knew I couldn’t he was my bro.

So I held on tight,

Trying to help him fight.

With one last gasp for air,

He looked up and said.

All I ask for is a prayer.
