Contest Winner!

The contest result to select a horse for the cover of my next Beloved Horses book is shown above - all four will be included!

More than 300 voted in this Book Cover Contest, and Anne Callahn suggested that all four be featured. The production team agreed since it was a really close race.

Delia Pacheco was the winner in the drawing for a free copy of the book. Anne will receive one too.

Thanks for all the votes. The book will be released in September, with pre-release orders taken starting now with a 20% discount off the $14.95 ($11.96) and FREE shipping. E-mail me your order at

Library Program for kids - with Woogie!

We're excited about holding a children's program at the Gulf Beaches Public Library in the Tampa Bay region. Woogie, our Irish Terrier and the star in his own book, was invited to meet the kids! Address: 200 Municipal Dr, Madeira Beach, FL.

Here is what the library posted on their site and in the local paper:

Tuesday, July 6, 2 p.m. Sharon Miner: Sharon loves dogs, horses and writing books. What a coincidence! We do too! She’ll talk to us about her work with animals, and how to write about them too.

I'll also be drawing the name for the Book Cover Contest.

Wow! 284 people voted for their favorite horse for the cover of the next Beloved Horses book!

I'll post results of the cover and winner of the book here after the event.

Thanks for all the votes!
