Revisiting an old friend, The Sweet Running Filly

cover_sweetrunningBook 6 out and available on Amazon now, Barbara and I are already reviewing The Sweet Running Filly for rerelease through Amazon’s CreateSpace in both print and Kindle formats.

The first of five in the original Bonnie books series,The Sweet Running Filly sold over 210,000 copies when it was released in 1971 by Signet, and was translated into several languages.

Looking to rerelease all five books in the series, we will have a better idea of what our release schedule will look like after this weekend. We are also thrilled to mention that our new cover artist, the incredibly talented Sally Ann Lyle, will be doing all five books to go with Barbara’s newest release.

We will keep you posted on our progress and might even give you a peek behind the process along the way. Till then, keep calm and Bonnie on!

In the saddle,
Ria

  1. OMG, I just picked up A Special Kind of Courage at the Keeneland library sale here in Lexington. Being as MY name is Bonnie and I love horses, especially Thoroughbred racing, you can imagine how much I loved these books as a kid! I was so surprised and excited to see there is a new one and can’t wait to read it! I still have my 5 from when I was a girl!

  2. Hi Bonnie,
    Thanks for your kind words and I’m so glad you loved Bonnie too. Please let me know how you like A Special Kind of Courage. Did you get a copy which has the reference to this website or did you just figure it out yourself. Am just wondering how there happened to be a copy at the Keeneland sale.

    Just a note since your name is Bonnie. My first horse, a TB I bought as a 2-yr-old out of a field with my meagre savings from grooming at horse shows, needed a name to be entered in an upcoming show. The lady I worked for had just bought a bottle of Dubonnet wine and suggested that since my name was Barbara, I call her Barbonnet. I didn’t like the “et” on the end and changed it to Barbonne (with a French accent on the “e”), but from that day on she was BONNIE. She was the national AHSA high score champion in her division as a three-yr-old, and I loved her dearly. I lost her at age 22.

    Note: If you send me your mailing address, I will send you one of our bookmarks from The Bonnie Books.

    Best,
    Barbara Van Tuyl
