My story nominated for Global eBook Award (swoon)

I know this thread is primarily for those working on horse stories for fun, maybe to share with friends or Forum members... and that's how mine started, too! But after a few friends finally convinced me to let them see what I'd been slaving over (I was PETRIFIED), they somehow managed to talk me into trying to get it published. So I did, and it was.

And now my scribblings have been nominated for a Global eBook Award, and I'm so excited I had tell someone (it's a horse story, of course). Here's the cover of my book with its snazzy new 'nominated' sticker!

Keep on writing! Your story could be next :)

That's true cakemom - you were one of the first!! In fact the 2nd edition will be out soon... I don't know if you got the ebook or paperback, but if you got the hardcopy there were only a few hundred of those printed (ebooks sell way more). So who knows, it might even be worth something one day :)

Thank you, jenainy!! It still feels a bit surreal to me :)


I had to edit a lot of the more 'horsey' details out of the first book (at the insistence of my agent and publisher), but since the first one's doing well I'm trying to make the sequel a bit more horse-centric!)
