Book One of the Bonnie book series, The Sweet Running Filly, originally released in 1971, is being re-released this month!
Barbara has been working through the original five books to make sure they are ready for release. Sally Ann Lyle, the cover artist for A Special Kind of Courage, will grace the covers of all five re-releases.
Here’s a sneak peek at the new cover for book one alongside the original 1971 cover…
We are looking forward to rekindling (no pun intended) the series for a new generation of young adult horse lovers as well as adult fans all over the world.
And a special thank you to all of our UK customers who have been picking up copies of Courage on Kindle! Thank you for helping us get the word out.
A Special Kind of Courage is officially out and available on Amazon!
The first book published by Barbara in over 30 years, we are incredibly happy to be able to share this newest installment in the Bonnie books series with all of her fans.
I’m very proud to be a part of this project and have had the chance to talk to people about the books recently. Barbara has been humbled on more than one occasion with compliments like “I read those books as a child! I love Bonnie!” and it has been wonderful to see how much of an impact her books had made on people. It is my hope that the series sees a resurgence of interest and support, through not only previous fans, but new generations as well.
Barbara and I will be on hand for her first A Special Kind of Courage book signing this coming weekend in Ocala at United Hay Sales from 12noon until around 3:30pm. More about that next!
In the saddle,
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
