READ A BOOK, HELP A COWBOY!
October 1 through December 24, ten percent of the net proceeds from all of my book sales are donated to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund
Back in 2013, Shanna Hatfield was researching details for The Christmas Cowboy, the first book in the Rodeo Romance series. She wanted to know how much medical care an injured cowboy would receive at a rodeo versus going to the hospital.
In the story, the hero is a saddle bronc rider named Tate who sustains an injury at a rodeo. In an attempt to get my facts straight for the story, Shanna reached out to the Justin Sportsmedicine Team®. Through mobile medical centers, they provide care at more than 125 PRCA rodeos annually. Their responses to her questions were extremely helpful and she was so impressed with them, she wanted to do a little something in return.
So she launched a campaign to donate a portion of her book sales to the JCCF during the month of December.
In 2015, Shanna added the month of November to her promotion, giving two months to raise funds for JCCF. Then she extended the promotion period for her Read a Book, Help a Cowboy campaign to October 1!
“If you enjoy rodeos and the cowboys who make them possible (or reading about them in books), I hope you’ll take a look at the JCCF. It’s a great organization that really does make a difference when these cowboys are injured. And I hope you’ll take a look at my books, too!Shanna hatfield
Be sure to get your copy of A Cowboy Christmas that includes interviews with rodeo cowboys who’ve received a hand up from the JCCF.
Remember, from October 1 through December 24, every book purchased helps benefit the JCCF! With more than 100 to choose from and formats of paperback, hardback, digital, and audio, there’s sure to be a book for everyone, including those on your holiday shopping list!
ABOUT SHANNA HATFIELD:

Shanna creates character-driven romances with realistic heroes and heroines. Her historical westerns have been described as “reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian” while her contemporary works have been called “laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way.”
