One Week!

Run for the RosesRUN FOR THE ROSES comes out in one week and I'm so excited! I've been sharing snippets on my Facebook page, if you want to check them out. :)

I'm very excited about this story, but I'm also nervous. (Of course, I suppose writers always are when a new story comes out.)

Horses were such a huge part of my life growing up, and they're still a very important part of my life now. I hope that the horse people I know who read this story will think it does justice to what horse showing is like, or can be like. I also hope the non-horsey people who read it enjoy it, and don't think it's 'too horsey.'

I also hope they don't think Abigail is a brat! Lol. She's a very driven person, but she has a lot of heart, too.

There's a blog tour starting next week, so I'll be posting links to that then. In the meantime I will have Riley Janes and Mia Josephs here on Thursday, giving an interview about their new book UNEXPECTEDLY YOU. (Which looks amazing by the way.) So be sure to stop by and say hello to them!

How about you, what are you looking forward to in the next few weeks?


PS. Thank you to everyone who commented on my IWSG post. You were all so sweet and helpful! I love you guys!

  8. Yay, congrats! I haven't read a YA horse book since The Scorpio Races, so I'm definitely overdue for a horsey book. =)

  9. Congratulations! I think I only rode a horse once or twice when I was younger, but I can see why some people become horse people; I think horseback riding is fun, even though I only got to do it once. And I think it's good to have a character who's driven; a lot of young people are especially driven these days, so it'll be something they can relate to.
