Teaser Tuesday!

2 Replies

Teaser TuesdayTime for another tantalising treat thanks to Teaser Tuesday, the series where I share snippets from my novels, old, new and in progress, and occasionally let author buddies take over.

I’ve just received edits for Wayward Heart which is very exciting. The book is definitely on its way! I had planned to share a little bit from it but the manuscript is covered in mark-ups and editing notes and a bit messy, and sharing is probably left best for another time, when it’s cleaner. I’m sure Jasmine and Digby would much prefer to be shown off at their best.

Instead, let’s have a few paragraphs from Rocking Horse Hill, the book in which Jasmine is first introduced. Jas is the heroine Emily’s best friend and known for her big heart and sense of fun. Here she is with Em and Teagan (Teagan’s story is continued in The Falls) at Em’s property where they’ve gathered for a girly gossip and to clip their horses for the show season. As you do when you’re horsey gals!

 

Hoping she might learn from the others, or at least calm a little, the girls agreed to leave fractious Astra until last. The filly paced the stable, poking her head out of the half-door before jerking back inside to wheel another agitated circuit. Lod paid her no attention, content to stand dutifully on the concrete in the sun, waiting for his clipping, off-hind leg cocked and his hoof resting on its point. His head was down and eyes half-closed in a doze like his old friend Ox, now equally slumberous in Lod’s stable.

Rocking Horse Hill by Cathryn Hein‘Honestly, you’d send her to the knackers if she weren’t so stunning,’ said Jas, shaking her head as Astra embarked on yet another restless round.

‘She just needs to mature,’ said Em.

Teagan reached up to scratch Astra’s nose. ‘She’s only four.’

‘Ox was calm at four.’

‘Yes, but Ox had no balls.’

Jas grinned and blew a kiss at Ox. The big grey twitched his ears and blinked across the half-door before returning to sleep. ‘Poor thing. I wonder if he misses them.’ She turned back to Em who was perched on a crate, clippers in hand, palm pushing over Lod’s mane so she could clip the top-side of his neck. ‘Speaking of balls, how are things with Josh the Sexpot?’

 

Rocking Horse Hill is available in paperback and ebook from Booktopia, Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Google Play or your favourite retailer. You’ll also find photos and inside information about how I came to write the book on its ‘The Story Behind’ page.

    Looking forward to Jasmine and Digby’s story. Love the name Digby. Unusual but gorgeous just like the character himself. Gorgeous that is not unusual or maybe he is?
    Very excited about having a full length novel in my hands, it’s been too long. And did I mention Wayward Heart is a terrific title! And it matches some of your other book titles, which is so cool.

      Oooh, thrilled you love the title Wayward Heart, Sue! It took us a while to brainstorm that one but it does fit nicely with some of the others. Next stop will be the cover. I haven’t seen any concepts yet but they mustn’t be too far away. Can’t wait!
