What one reader said. This is a great review.......

"It's rare to find an author who presents serious real life problems such as the struggles of Native Americans in modern society, environmental degradation, or the plight of America's wild horses--while also skillfully weaving in suspense, romance, and fantasy to create a story that keeps you turning pages.

Kate Wyndham, the protagonist, is a Washington DC reporter sent on assignment to investigate the disappearance of two wild horse advocates who are missing in Nevada's vast northern desert. Despite stonewalling by government officials, Kate connects with a Native American man and his family members who help her follow a dangerous trail to learn the fate of the two advocates.

This is a satisfying novel: The heroine is fiesty, the love interest is definitely interesting, the characters are well drawn, and the bad guys are horrible. It also leaves the reader thoughtful on the meaning and cost of progess.

I recommend this for readers who love horses and nature, or anyone who just loves a good book. "

Good for you! :)

But I agree with Seun - I think the place for any sort of announcements is the Announcements thread (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=34).

Would I mod please port this over there?

A mod ported this here from Novels. I saw it as an Accomplishment.

No worries, AllHorsesPost! It takes a while to figure out all these forums! :)

This is going on my read list--HORSES and Native American issues. That's a win-win for me.

CONGRATS!!! :hooray: :hooray: :hooray:
And great cover...

Still working on the typos in the manuscript - but I put it out there for people to read via createspace/kindle because my many beta readers were getting everyone so stirred up about it.

And it does have what I consider to be the SMIP (sexiest man in print).....
