Only a little more than 24 hours left to get your entry in to win a copy of RIDING THE PULP TRAIL. And don't forget that it'll be a SIGNED copy by me, which will boost the resale value of your copy by about..oh.....25 cents.
Go to Wednesday's post for the clue and instructions.
And if it helps, there's a clue in the title of this post as to what word to look for....
Other goings on...
The great Western website ROPE AND WIRE is having their second annual short story contest. ROPE AND WIRE is quickly becoming the Go To website for not only the best in new western fiction, but also as a Western online community. Go on over there for the rules for the contest. I've already asked if they would take stories from a) deceased authors and/or b) that have been published already. Unfortunately it's No for both, so you won't have to worry about competing against any of my grandfather's stories from RIDING THE PULP TRAIL.
Another web site I've been introduced to is CowboyPoetry.com, more formally known as Cowboy Poetry at the Bar-D Ranch. This is a terrific site for everything having to do with Western poetry, music, books, concerts, and events. The website was established in 2000 and it has a substantial following and a Facebook page.
More great news: David Cranmer announced that he is about a week away from releasing his Volume II of The Adventures of Cash Laramie & Gideon Miles (written under his pseudonym Edward A Grainger). You can read the introduction to Volume II at David's blog The Education of a Pulp Writer.
Everyone have a good weekend! I'll be checking in sporadically.
