It’s almost here! My new book, Finding Home, will hit the shelves on November 27th.
And when I say new I mean new in almost every conceivable way. It’s a new genre (women’s fiction) a new publisher (Kensington Books) and a new format (trade size plus ebooks plus audio).
But the ideas have been with me forever. In fact, my agent has been asking me to write a similar book for years. “Horses,” she said, “are an enduring topic for women. Women have always loved horses and they will always love horses.” But I dragged my feet. I’m not sure why. Maybe because ranching and horses has become kind of cliché…or maybe because I was afraid I couldn’t do it justice. But once I was in the proverbial saddle, I loved the whole process.
Finding Home is the story of a young woman finding her place in the world. It’s about going home, about growing up, about making life what you want it to be. Along the way there are cowboys and horses and homeless kids and hairless goats. It’s a book that’s very close to my heart…one that encompasses a good deal of my growing up years.
So, in an effort to spread the news, I’m asking a favor of you. If you would be so kind as to tell me the name and location of your favorite bookstore, I’ll do my best to send them an advance reading copy. In addition, YOU too will be entered to win a copy hot off the presses.
Also, anyone who comments on our Riders blog between now and November 22nd will be eligible to win our Thanksgiving Goodies Basket. So please chime in. We’ll be giving away a veritable cornucopia of books and fun stuff to one U.S. resident plus ebooks etc. to an international reader.
