The latest award for my novel The Hidden Horses of New York has arrived!
This book won the WINNIE Award for Horse Racing Books at the 2020 EQUUS Film & Arts Festival. This is the second award for Hidden Horses, which also won for best fiction in the American Horse Publications’ 2019 awards.
The award had to shipped, of course, as the physical festival had to be scrapped because of the pandemic. What a shame, because you can see all of the fun things that came with it – credentials, a medal from the literary corral! I am so hopeful we can all gather at the Kentucky Horse Park in late 2021 to celebrate another year of great horse books…and of course, the return of our real lives.
It’s especially poignant to win an award for a story about New York City, whose residents have been through so much over the past year. I can’t wait to be back in my favorite city. Hopefully it will be this year, because I have an idea for a follow-up to this novel and I’d love to walk the streets again for inspiration.
If you missed it, I have an interview with the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest here.
The Hidden Horses of New York is still a Kindle Deal through January 31, 2021. Get your copy here.
