July 24, 2010, is National Day of the American Cowboy in the USA. In honor of the occasion, we’re declaring it Cowboy Week here at BookRix.
Cowboy Week will be full of cowboy and cowgirl stories! Any stories that relate to modern-day cowboys/girls to old-fashioned ones who ride off into the sunset are acceptable. Shine your cowboy boots and get your horse ready – Cowboy Week on BookRix will take place between July 21 and July 29. Boy howdy!
For this writing contest, there is no limit on pages! You may enter more than one book in the contest.
And we sure do have one heck of a prize: $100 gift card to a Western wear store for the first place winner! Now you can get that genuine cowboy hat you’ve always wanted!
