From Endurance to Dressage
I was recently contacted by the author P.J. O'Dwyer and asked if I would host her on my blog. Since I love to write myself, not to mention that I am a voracious reader, I eagerly agreed.
Part of P.J.'s book tour includes a giveaway, so yah for free stuff! I know that she is offering 10 copies of her book, jewelry, and steep discounts on her other books. To be eligible, you just need to leave a comment on the day that she stops by my blog, July 1st. Claimed will be available in eBook form from Amazon for only 99¢ during the blog tour!
To sweeten the deal a bit, P.J. sent me an autographed copy of her book, Relentless, and a lovely pair of earrings from her store.
The book was a perfect summer time read. I read virtually all of it in one afternoon of couch potato laziness. The story includes several mysteries, a few steamy love scenes, and a lot of quick action. The main character, Bren, is a determined, self-sufficient gal who doesn't take any crap. I like strong female characters, especially when they also get the guy in the end!
You can check out P.J.'s website at www.pjodwyer.com. Be sure to check back on July 1st so that you can read a small excerpt from her newest book and maybe even get a free copy!
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
