It's a boy! He's a black (or bay) and white tobiano paint Tennessee Walking Horse. We took a trip to SD, where we keep most of our horses, to see our new boy. Pictures are available at www.kathleeneagle.com, along with pictures of us out on Lake Minnetonka in our pontoon. I've also added a few photos of more of my vintage Barbie dolls. These were taken in my garden.
But the most interesting page on the web site might be the new "What's Next?" page, featuring the back cover copy from A VIEW OF THE RIVER (9/05 release from Mira Books) and a photo of an old postcard that plays a role in the book. What's the role? You'll have to read the book, of course, but when you do, you will have seen the actual postcard. Next month I plan to add an excerpt to the site, so do stay tuned!
Man, oh, man, it's hard to write in the summer. I'm working on a new book now--no title yet--but it's in the early stages. I have to get a good handle on the characters before I can suggest a title. We're enjoying lovely gardening-boating-horsing around weather, so I really have to discipline myself. I hope you'll stop in at www.kathleeneagle.com and www.midwestfiction.com to see what's going on in my part of the world. Another suggestion: visit my friend Lois at www.loisgreiman.com and check out the excerpt from her first mystery/romantic suspense novel, UNZIPPED, which just hit the stores. Lois is a fellow writer, horse-lover, and Minnesotan. I haven't read her new book yet, but it's getting great reviews and sounds like a fun summer read.
Until next month, enjoy lots of good books! Kathleen Eagle www.kathleeneagle.com
