Texan by the grace of God

I picked up a new anthology from The Wild Rose Press this week, Love, Texas Style, because I can never resist a cowboy, and was delighted to see all the local Texas authors.

There is a wide range (if you'll pardon the pun) of settings from Big D to a small town that I'm sure must be Crockett, and from a working cattle ranch to the lonely roads in the far parts of the state. There are bull-riders, rich girls, fancy cars and old trucks, and even a giant rotating armadillo. In short, all the flavor and variety that makes this state great, or at least interesting. It's all Texas, oh so familiar, and all wonderfully larger than life with it's glitz and glitter, dusty roads, hot summer sun and those brilliant starry nights.

And the cowboys... it's all about those cowboys. ;)

um - you will know why I am not fond of cowboys. ;-)

Other than that teeny tiny detail, the book sounds fascinating.

yes, unfortunately, you have good reason.

But I will say that none of the guys in the book are like that. :)

I wonder if the Wild Rose Press is looking at doing similar books for other states?

Thanks so much for the plug, Sue. This is my second visit and I love reading about the horses and seeing your gorgeous pictures of them.

I think they should tackle Alaska men next. Okay, so they're not all John Corbitt-types, but they'd have the alpha-thing down:)

Hi L.A.! I really enjoyed the book and your story especially. I meant to pop over to your blog and say so and 'life' must have distracted me! ack!! I'll do that now!

I'm glad you're enjoying my horses. Have you seen the virtual stable I host? www.FantasyHorseStable.com

Alaska would be fun. They have such long winters.. ;)

Is that you with the pistol, Sue? Wasn't sure how "virtual" the picture was *g*

I've added you to my blogroll so I remember to check back often :)

Yes, LOL! - If you're referring to the photo on RIFAIMA's entry on the Fantasy Horse Blog?

That's me :) We just started Cowboy Mounted Shooting a couple of years ago. I don't have that mare any more, but there are pics from last weekend's shoot here: http://www.theoriginalseries.com/ELBERETH.htm
