New Horizons








There's a bit of a story behind this.

Several months ago I was approached by editor M.R. Zuchniak from Green Gecko Publishing, a brand new publishing house, and asked to write a foreword for an eBook of short stories and quotes called "Passion For Horses."

I read the bits and pieces they had assembled and liked the concept, so I said, "Sure."

One thing led to another and I ended up writing a short story for this fun collection of essays and thought provoking quotes. It's one you guys have never read before, and there's a bit of my love life wrapped around it. As usual, it's straight from the bowels of memory and as true a tale as I can tell.

The authors in this book are from all over the world, and there's a name or two regular Mugwump Chronicles readers will recognize. 

 The book is not staying an eBook, it is coming out in paperback soon. This tickled me on more than one level, the main one being this is the kind of book I'd stick in my saddlebags for a light read on a trail ride, or a lazy afternoon at the barn.

Looks awesome. Can't wait to read it. Hopefully this is a warm up for your own full-length book, right?

Congratulations! I've been reading your blog since 2009 and I can't think of someone better suited to write a foreword and contribute to a collection of horse stories.

I can't wait to get home to download it! I'm hoping right along with NCBayMare! A collection of your own short stories would be good too :-)

Well, that's my Christmas list for certain people sorted.

You scared me for a moment with the title "New Horizons". It sounded like the start of a goodbye blog post! Introducing a new book is much more fun.

Kel said...

Congratulations, Mugs!

Helen: Agreed! This will make a great stocking stuffer for my horse-loving friends.
