Clyde and Strawberry are all set for their next modeling job on the cover of Amber’s Pony Tales Book 4
Strawberry the pony is the latest cover star competition winner to appear on the cover of an Amber’s Pony Tales book after winning the Book 3 competition. She is now the model for Molly, the main pony character in the series’ third book, ‘Trusting Molly’. The book was due to be launched at Badminton Horse Trials in May, but sadly this was cancelled. The book has still been released on Kindle and the paperback will be out by the end of August 2020 (fingers crossed!)
Meanwhile, I've completed the fourth book in the series and the cover design process for Book 4 will begin in mid-August. It will feature Strawberry as Molly, but Greenholme Clyde, the first cover star winner will also appear again too, representing Honey the Fell pony.
The pony’s owners are both looking forward to seeing their equine friends on the cover of a book again, during a season where there hasn’t been much else to look forward to. Clyde’s owner, Katie Trotter, was gearing up to compete at some of her favourite events: The Royal Highland Show, North of England Show and Blair Horse Trials, before everything ground to a halt in March. She’s now hoping to get back out and do some working hunter and showing before the end of this season, and would also love to take Clyde on a sponsored ride as it’s something she’s never done and she’s sure Clyde would love it.
Myla Postlethwaite-Todd, who just got Strawberry last October, is disappointed to have missed most of her first season on her new pony. She was keen to make a start with her. She’s recently been able to get out to some cross country training and is hoping to take part in her first Eventer Derby at Greenlands Equestrian Centre in August as well as some summer showjumping.
I'm now writing Book 5 in the series, which will feature some new characters, both horse and human. The cover competition for this book is open now until 30th September. Details about it are available on the competitions page of this website.
