Equine Affaire and New Equestrian Fiction Alert

November is somehow always my busiest month, and this year is no exception. I have two huge announcements for readers!

1. Equine Affaire 2018 Booksigning

I haven’t been to Equine Affaire since 2016, so I am thrilled to come back November 10-11 to sign books and chat with readers! I’ll be at the wonderful Taborton Equine Books on Saturday from 1 – 4 PM & 5 – 7 PM. Then again on Sunday, 10 AM – 1 PM.

Please come over to say hello! Bring your books if you’d like them signed, or there will be plenty on hand from Taborton’s inventory as well. This is always one of my happiest weekends of the year, because we all come out from behind our computers and actually get to chat and maybe hug and it’s just wonderful.

2. Read HORSES IN WONDERLAND right now

I’ve just uploaded all thirty chapters of the sequel to SHOW BARN BLUES to Patreon. These are the unedited chapters of my manuscript, the same ones that go to my editor and beta readers for fixing and commenting. You can read them right now, plus get a download of the finished edition on publication day, when you subscribe to Patreon for $5 a month. Chapters 1-15 are available now, and Chapters 16-30 will upload every day, tomorrow through November 19.

I haven’t decided on a pre-order date or final publish date yet, so if you’re looking for early access, plus lots of other unpublished bits of story and chapters, Patreon is the place to be!

Finally, a huge thanks to all of my current Patreon subscribers, of all levels. Your support has allowed me to give up freelancing, spend all of my “free time” on writing this novel, and even covered my expenses in getting to Equine Affaire this year. There is simply no way I could have finished HORSES IN WONDERLAND this year without you. Equestrian Fiction is powered by readers!

Join Me at Equine Affaire 2016

I can’t believe Equine Affaire is only a couple of weeks away! Mid-November still sounds like months in the future, maybe because we’ve only just had our first cool spell here in central Florida – it’s about sixty degrees this morning, guys! But it’s true: Equine Affaire’s Massachusetts expo, November 10th through 13th 2016, is in less than three weeks.

(And I only own sleeveless dresses, so please pray to the weather gods it’s unseasonably warm. Last time I went to Equine Affaire, it SNOWED.)

Join me at Equine Affaire 2016 - presentations, book-signings, or just a good chat about horses and books!

Join me at Equine Affaire 2016 – presentations, book-signings, or just a good chat about horses and books! Friday, Nov. 11 at 10 AM.

This year I’ll be on an author panel discussion about the importance of horses in fiction. If you’re here reading this, you know that horse books are the best books! What makes it that way, though? Is it just a mirror to the lives we love? Or is there something about horses that just makes any book better?

I’ll be in conversation with authors Laura Moore (who has a beautiful romance, Remember Me, set on a Thoroughbred farm in Virginia) and Holly Robinson (whose new novel, Folly Cove, features horses in a coastal northeastern town. Maybe she has some winter clothing advice for me). Our moderator is the talented Connie Johnson Hambley, whose novelsThe Troubles and The Charity are set in the horse world. It’s going to be a (slightly nerdy) amazing time.

Add our panel to your schedule: “Capturing the Essence of Horse in Fiction: How authors use horses to tell you a better story” on Friday, November 11th at 10:00 AM

And Hambley will be presenting with some of my favorite writers in another panel, as well! Mara Dabrishus, author of the remarkable and amazing (can you tell I love them) horse racing novels Staying the Distance and All Heart (among others) will be alongside also remarkable and amazing Maggie Dana, author of Timber Ridge Riders, and (also remarkable and talented) equestrian thriller writer, Patti Brooks.

Add their panel to your schedule: “Favorite Fictional Horses: From the Black Stallion to My Little Pony – What our favorites say about us” on Thursday, November 10th at 11:00 AM.

Here’s a helpful photo of me looking intense and writerly so that I’m easy for you to spot and avoid – I mean spot and chat with – at Equine Affaire

Along with these panels, there will be plenty of chat-time at the best booth in all of Equine Affaire, Taborton Equine BooksI’ll be at the book-signing table, daring you to come talk to me, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

There will be paperbacks of my novels for sale, or bring your own!

If you’re on the fence about attending Equine Affaire, go visit the website and see all the other incredible presentations available. Then come see me. Because I can’t wait to meet you!
