Chivalry is now available in paperback on Amazon!
I’ll also be giving away three autographed copies of the paperback version on Goodreads soon. As soon as that goes live, I’ll post a link.
The book is selling and getting good reviews so far. I’m so appreciative of my friends who have helped me through this journey. (see also Acknowledgements inside the book) I’m sure most of my sales are from friends, but that does help me get a leg up into the book-selling world. Pun intended. Did you get it? 😀
I uploaded Chivalry onto Nook in hopes that their print on demand service is easier to figure out, but alas, it is the exact same process as Amazon/CreateSpace. The process consists of me uploading the manuscript, a cover, filling out all the info and numbers, then waiting two days to be told there is an error. The cover fits the template, so I’m not sure what else to do, and of course, they do not have help with these things. Instead, their answer in the FAQ is to make a whole new cover with their service. If I do that, surely, it will work. I see how it is.
BUT, it is on Nook now! Yay!
In 1960s New York, seventeen-year-old Rachel McMahon has grown up on the backside of Belmont Park exercising race horses for her mother, a rare female trainer in a sport dominated by men. Her mother, however, doesn’t support her dream, fearing for her safety, not simply because of the inherent dangers of riding a high-spirited racehorse on the track, but because of the attacks other pioneering women jockeys have dealt with across the country.
Even so, the greatest threat to her dream was her abduction and subsequent torture at the hands of a depraved and evil man—a man she calls the “monster.” Nightmares and flashbacks take control of her life and threaten to destroy her. But then she met Erick, who shares her dream, and is determined to help her find her way out of the nightmares and back to her dreams.
With the help of Chivalry, their barn’s newest and most promising horse, Rachel and her family set their sights on the most prestigious race in the country—The Kentucky Derby. But with the intense pushback from the male jockeys and the fans, they wonder if it’s all worth it. Will Rachel be able to hold on through the storms coming against her?
