Keeping a Backyard Horse by Marguerite Madden

BookCoverPreview-1

What inspired you to write your book?
It’s my hope that this book will help reduce “accidental” neglect of horses by teaching new or prospective horse owners how to care for their animal. So many times I’ve seen horses starving, even with plenty of food in front of them, because their owner wasn’t aware of the need to medicate for parasites. Or seen horses with horribly overgrown feet, because their human didn’t know that they need regular trimming. Or horses who have died from ilnesses that could have been prevented with a $20 vaccine!

About your Book:
Hay is for horses! Everyone knows that, but do you know how much hay a horse needs? Or how much water? Did you know that your horse can talk to you with his ears, or that he can sleep standing up?
Follow along with Athena the horse as she teaches you the basics of taking care of an equine pet. This easy-to-read guide focuses on the average horse and the average horse owner. From tips on keeping water thawed in winter weather tricks and other fun stuff you can do with your horse, you’ll learn everything you need to know to keep your pet healthy and happy. Keeping a backyard horse takes a little knowledge, but even if you’re on a budget, it can be done!

Book Genre: non-fiction, pets, horse care

What formats are your books in
Both eBook and Print

How do you see writing a book in the Pet Genre as different from writing other genres of books?
Even though you don’t have to be an “expert” with a bunch of letters behind your name, you can still write non-fiction in this genre as long as you make sure your information is accurate. If you don’t have true facts, someone’s going to catch you on it!

Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a pet book
Make sure it’s something that you enjoy doing, and do your research to make sure your facts are accurate.

How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
A friend encouraged me to publish in print and for Kindle, so I published through CreateSpace and KDP.

Author Bio:
I’m married, a mother of two teenage daughters, three dogs, and my horse Athena. She’s on the cover of my horse book! I live in a small farm town in Southeast Missouri, and I’m currently working on two new books.

Appaloosa Summer by Tudor Robins

APS-FinalSixteen-year-old Meg Traherne has never known loss. Until the beautiful, talented horse she trained herself, drops dead underneath her in the show ring.

Jared Strickland has been living with loss ever since his father died in a tragic farming accident.

Meg escapes from her grief by changing everything about her life; moving away from home to spend her summer living on an island in the St. Lawrence River, scrubbing toilets and waiting on guests at a B&B.

Once there, she meets Jared; doing his best to keep anything else in his life from changing.

When Jared offers Meg a scruffy appaloosa mare out of a friend’s back field, it’s the beginning of a journey that will change both of them by summer’s end.

Targeted Age Group:: 12 and up

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
There are two answers to this question: the reader answer, and the writer answer.

Ever since I was very young, the reader in me has always looked for books about the things I love: the countryside, horses, some romance. When I can find those books, I’m in heaven. When I can’t, I sit down to write them!

For Appaloosa Summer in particular, I think the writer in me took some of my childhood experiences – having two weeks every summer when I could run wild, and gallop horses bareback across the fields at our cottage – and applied the “what if?” question to them. What if a girl from the city got to spend an entire summer on a rural island? What if she met a great guy? I just let the words flow and this book was the result.
