Awesome August Blog Hop! Win Prizes and Connect to Great Blogs!

Welcome to the Awesome August Blog Hop, where bloggers from all over the Internet have come together to throw a summertime party!

Every blog on this hop is offering a fun prize, and entering is quick and easy. Simply follow the instructions on each blog, leave a comment, and bop right along to the next blog. You can win multiple times, so be sure to check out all the participating blogs!

On my blog, the prize is a SIGNED FIRST EDITION COPY of my novel, "Dan Powell: The Making of an American Cowboy."

This is a story based on the life of Dan Powell, founder of the town of Powell, South Dakota, who live from approximately 1852 to 1929. The work is based on the facts gathered by Dr. Albert “Britt” Karns, a descendant of Powell. It weaves the documented places and people involved in Powell’s life with a creative interpretation of what may have driven him from place to place, and the people he may have encountered.

To enter:

1. Become a follower of my blog.

2. "Like" my book on Facebook.

3. Leave me a comment and tell me that you've done both things. If your e-mail isn't available through your profile, I'll need you to leave that, too - I can't tell you if you've won if I can't contact you!

This blog hop runs through Wednesday night at midnight, so be sure to enter before then! The winner will be notified by e-mail.

Now that you've entered my contest, come meet all my other blog friends and see what fun things they are offering!
