2012 Beloved Horses Book Tour

Special Announcement!

Here are the locations of book signing events for my 2012 Beloved Horses Book Tour. Besides selling my nine horse, dog and teen mystery books, I’ll be interviewing horse enthusiasts for the fifth book in the Beloved Horses series. At my “Ponies & Puppies” booth, I'll share my passions of horses and dogs with books, novelties and a craft of decorating a real horseshoe with sequins and bling. 

The book tour events include:
May 31st – June 2nd - American Horse Publications Seminar in Williamsburg, Virginia. I will display my books and conduct interviews for my fifth book in the Beloved Horses series. I am a panelist for Sharing Ideas: Horses, Books, and the Digital Age: A Match Made in Heaven. See American Horse Publications site for details at http://www.americanhorsepubs.org/programs/seminars/.

June 3rd Sunday, 1-5 pm - Right Lead in Medina, Ohio.  I'll have my booth at the Open House at Right Lead, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps disabled and at-risk individuals with the use of horses. They also rescue horses that have been abandoned, neglected, and are no longer wanted. My fifth Beloved Horses book will feature Major, their retired police horse. The Cleveland Metro Parks Mounted Patrol will make an appearance to honor Major. There will be fun activities, and they will also sell raffle tickets and refreshments.
Raffle tickets can be purchased ahead of time, and baskets include among others:
-$500 gas card, $5/ticket
-$100 Midas oil change cards, $1/ticket
Winning tickets will be drawn at the end of the Open House, and attendance is not required to win. For more information, visit

June 9th Saturday, 10am – 4pm, KidsFest in Harrington, Delaware. I'll have my booth here and make a donation for this fundraiser. This family event benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware and offers entertainment, crafts, carnival type rides, a Talent Contest, pony rides, a Horse Show, Petting Zoo, and refreshments.  For more information, visit http://www.kidsfestde.org/index.html

I'll also be available for signings and events when time permits along the route. Besides tack shops and horse shows, this includes speaking at equine rescues, handicapped riding programs, horse clubs and schools/libraries. For more information, contact me at sharonminer@yahoo.com or 814-937-0704.
