Are you ready for the Preakness Stakes?
If you’re in Maryland this weekend, add Pimlico Racecourse to your plans on Friday. That’s because it’s Black-Eyed Susan Day, a celebration of all things Maryland horse-racing. There’ll be barn tours, giveaways, live racing (the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, plus more!) and book signing events with some equestrian authors… like me!
I’ll be signing copies of my horse racing and Thoroughbred retirement novel Turning For Home, the recent finalist for the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award. I’ll also have a few copies of my eventing novel, Ambition, on hand for anyone who wants them. You can also feel free to bring along any other titles by me you’d like signed!
I’d love to meet readers and talk horses and books with you, so please come out!
There will be several other authors there as well: Eliza McGraw will be signing Here Comes Exterminator! and Joanne Beusch will be signing Brightly Shining: The Horse No One Wanted.
Find the horse books by the grandstand from 12 PM – 2 PM! Proceeds from our books will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and Maryland Komen.
We’ll also be at the races on Preakness Day. This is my first time at Pimlico, and my first Preakness! After four or five Belmont Stakes, I figure it’s time to diversify my Triple Crown portfolio. No word yet on when I’ll be adding the Kentucky Derby to the mix.
