    Life has this way of getting in the way of writing (it happens to me, too - the sequel's been halfway done all summer!). Congrats on the show placements!

    Actually it's been interesting for me, since the book's selling a bit now, to hear feedback from readers. Some of the things they've told me I've tried to consider when writing, but other times you just have to shrug it off - you can't please everyone, and I find it really slows down my writing when I start overthinking things. Not that it's super relevant, I'm just rambling :)

    Fifteen minutes later, 8 horses were being loaded into the trailor. My family and Colt each picked a horse and we took in 4 more. Dad did a èhorse-countè, as he called it, and asked me where my horse was. I pointed to Hollywood Dreamer-which I decided to nick-name, Holly. Immediately my dad said no.

    "You said we could pick whichever horse we wanted and I pick that one." I told him stubbornly. After a bit of convincing and a few words from Colt, dad finally gave in.

    Joe sent one of his handlers in and after fifteen minutes of chasing and running away, he managed to give Holly a shot that was supposted to calm her down for a few hours. He let me lead her into the trailer while my dad signed a few papers for the horses before we drove off for home.

    We unloaded all the horses quickly and sufficiantly. Holly went into the round pen. Colt's horse, he named him Bandit, went into one of the fields with Striker, my dad's Paint/Draft mix. My mom's mare, Dodge went with Carlee's Warmblood, Montana, two other horses went in stalls that had attached paddocks and the rest went in a field.

    When we had finnished, we all went to the house for lunch. I ate quickly then ran back outside with Summer chasing at my heels. Holly was still calm from the shot. She stood in the middle of the roundpen dozing off. I figured that this was probably the best time to give her a quick grooming before the shot wore off.

    So I groomed and groomed and groomed until holly started to get restless and I decided that she was clean enough...more than clean enough, she was dazzling! I stepped out of the round pen and gazed at my beautiful horse. I may not be a horse-person, but everyone deserves a second chance.

    Yes it's very interesting - but you get a taste of that on this forum, I guess, when you post your snippets of stories. I like where this one's going, btw!
    One of the reader reviews I got on Amazon said she thought the relationship got 'too explicit', but then she still gave it 4 stars (out of 5). One reader thought the main character 'sounded' too old for 17; another thought she was naive for 17. I think it depends on the reader more than the story!

    Thanks, I'm sorta making it up as I go... :p I have the general idea of what I want to happen and stuff but... haha whatever :p

    Yeah, I'll see if I can get your book and I'll tell you what I think of it-I love romance and horsey (either horsey or action)!
