The Cowboy's Bride by Susan Page Davis ends April 4th
Welcome, Susan! So glad to have you back on my blog. Susan is giving away a copy of her book, The Cowboy's Bride (paperback or ebook) to one lucky winner. Read on down to find out how to enter.
Poetry on the Plains
A rancher’s daughter who dreams, a cowboy whose poetry is terrible, and a dog that does tricks. What could go wrong?
Before writing this novella, I had researched Larry Chittenden, “the Poet Ranchman,” and his connection to my home state of Maine. It got me to thinking about the cowboy poetry genre. Here’s a link to the blog I did on Chittenden’s autograph lending library in Christmas Cove, Maine: http://www.hhhistory.com/2013/12/the-autograph-library.html .
I needed to write a light romance, and I decided to incorporate cowboys and poetry, as well as a pet. I don’t often include pets in my stories, although westerns, of course, include lots of horses. This time I decided to add a dog and give him an important role in the story.
The result is a light-hearted adventure in the Old West, with a subtle message about the importance of expressing your love to family members and your appreciation to those around you. Because of the ribbing the hero takes from his fellow cowboys, there’s also a reminder of the damage done by bullying, even “in fun.”
I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
