Most exciting (next) step in the progression of publishing my book, Soul Deep in Horses: Memoir of an Equestrian Vagabond ... I snagged a writer for the Foreward for my book: Julie Suhr!
As pretty much all of you endurance riders know, Julie is the 'First Lady of Endurance', a 22-time Tevis Cup finisher (and 3-time Haggin Cup winner!), a 30,000+ mile AERC rider, and not the least, a terrific writer. Her Ten Feet Tall, Still autobiography is one of my Top Twenty books ever. While my memoir is not just about endurance, but about a number of other horse disciplines and adventures around the world, if you've read Julie's book (and if you haven't, I highly recommend it!), you'll understand why I wanted Julie to write my Foreward.
I am thrilled, gobsmacked and honored beyond measure that she most graciously agreed to do this, and that she will be a part of my Soul-Deep adventure into the author-publishing world.
In my next memoir-progress post, I will appreciate you readers' input in a poll on a choice of several of my photographs as covers for my book - stay tuned!
**Top photo: yes, Stormy is excited too!
P.S. it's FOREWORD! as Fran corrected me in the comments - thanks!
