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

The Return of Bonnie

cover_Courage_goodreadsA 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 firstĀ 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,
Ria
