Today is the official release date for A Flight of Marewings, and that means the first stop of blog tour is live! Kate Wyland hosts me on her blog, Conversations About Horses, as I talk about Writing Horses Secondhand.
I’ll be honest with you: I’ve always loved horses, but I’ve never taken riding lessons or spent any time in a stable. All I knew about horses was that many authors get them wrong in their books. There’s even a stereotype in fantasy of the “motorcycle horse”, where the author treats the horse like a convenient vehicle to transport the hero from one location to another–running without rest, water, food, or any kind of care. Even though my marewings aren’t quite the same as horses, I didn’t want to make those kinds of mistakes. So how did I make my marewings feel real? Read my guest post on Kate’s blog to find out!
