Courage is up and running!

For fans of the original series, as well as a whole new generation of readers, book 6 in the Bonnie Books series is now available on Amazon here!

Thank you for your patience, we’re back to work on books 3-5 of the original series and hope to have more for you soon!

Oops! Two-for-one

Late nights are seldom conducive to accuracy, so everyone got a two-for-one last week when I posted about the new cover for book one. You got a look at the cover for the original The Sweet Running Filly, BUT the sneak peek was actually for book two, A Horse Called Bonnie. /facepalm

Now I could have swapped out the image and no one would have really known (except us), but I decided to go ahead and let both out of the bag instead. So here are the sneak peeks for both books, corrected!

Book One, The Sweet Running Filly, originally released in 1971 (with the REAL cover peek).

And Book Two, A Horse Called Bonnie, also originally released in 1971 (with the correct original cover).

We hope you are enjoying the behind the scenes peeks. I am a big fan of Sally Ann Lyle’s work, so it has been a pleasure sharing the new covers with you all. Stop by Sally’s site and take a look at her other work when you get a chance, she has some beautiful pieces.

And, if you are local, don’t forget to stop by the Authors in the Park event on March 29th in Mount Dora. Barbara and I will both be there with our books and we look forward to seeing you! (And don’t forget to pick up your free bookmark!)

Prepping for a big day tomorrow

2013-11-07 08.20.58We will be setting up a booth for Barbara to sign books in the morning at the 8th Annual Charity Auction and BBQ being held at United Hay Sales off Hwy 326 and Hwy 27 in Ocala.

Benefitting the local therapeutic riding program at Tomorrow’s Equestrian Center, we will be donating 20% of the proceeds of all sales at our booth to the program and hope to see you all there! Barbara will be on hand to sign her books, answer questions, and…::whispers:: we may even convince her to read part of a chapter.

(Shhh, don’t tell her I told you that.)

The event starts at 12noon with BBQ and a preview of the items that have been donated for the Silent Auction. And don’t forget, Bull Chip Bingo starts at 3pm so make sure to get your land deed before they let the bull out!

All the proceeds go to a good cause and it promises to be a lot of fun, so come out and spend the day with us! See you there.

Running down the checklist,
Ria

Courage

Putting the finishing touches on book six in the Bonnie Books series, A Special Kind of Courage. The original five books were released in the 70s and were very well received, selling an average of over 200,000 copies each. Released as a box set in 1975, you can still find a few copies on eBay.

Once Courage is up, we will start working on re-releasing the original five books.

This is the OFFICIAL site approved by the author.

We will be keeping you posted along the way and you can get involved by checking out our Contact page for links to Barbara’s social networks.

Back in the saddle again,
Ria & Barbara
