Dear Readers,
It's a big weekend for me and I hope you'll be celebrating the last days of summer, too!
WATER LILY is out! In fact, some readers have already sent me wonderful notes as they're reading it! Yippee!
WILD HORSE VACATION update -- the survey is now point-and-click easy!
Even if coming to Nevada is only a dream, please go to the NEWS page of PhantomStallion.com and take the survey about seeing wild mustangs roaming free. We're trying to convince Nevada's government that wild horses are important to the WORLD! You never know what twists and turns your lives may take. If you ever get to Nevada -- ten or twenty years from now, I want the horses to be here for you.
While you're on the NEWS page at PhantomStallion.com, take a look at the photo announcement about my trip to the LOS ANGELES EQUESTRIAN CENTER on Monday. Featured in the phots -- my daughter and a pretty paint named Darlin'!
One more thing: on my photo page, you'll see a great shot of the kids who came to my booksigning event in Loveland, Colorado.
Happy trails,

Crimson Vale

Dear Readers,
Waipi'o Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii inspired the wild horse paradise ruled by the stallion Black Lava and his lead mare Medusa. Since visiting there in person isn't an everyday adventure for most of us, I thought I'd share this: http://zenimages.blogspot.com/2008/08/waipio-valley-old-mamalahoa-hwy.html
Not only are the photos exquisite, but I think you'll enjoy the writer's text, too. It creates one atmosphere of the many in what's one of my favorite wild places.

p.s. Waipi'o Valley is often called the Valley of the Kings. Learn why, here: http://gohawaii.about.com/cs/bigislandland/a/waipio_valley.htm

Bubba the Buckskin Stallion - more majestic than his name :)

My heart is still pounding from seeing a huge band of 24 wild horses today! Running free as they should be... if you'd like to catch a glimpse of them, too, check this out -- http://www.kbrhorse.net/wclo/whsilversprings04.html

The herd I saw belonged to Bubba the Buckskin.

Happy trails,

Dear Readers,
After a long winter, a longer spring and a forest fire which blazed through fences at the Wild Horse Sanctuary, the real Phantom has finally been sighted. All the people at the sanctuary, including Palomino, the volunteer whose great note I've posted below, assured me that the big boy was just living up to his name, but I couldn't help worrying about him.
I'm so excited he's been spotted and my fingers are crossed that I'll get a glimpse of him myself when I got to the Sanctuary on Aug. 16 for Open House.
For your reading please:

Hi all,

Just thought you'd like to know that my new hubby spotted the Phantom on the far side of the sanctuary. As previously figured, he is staying away from the masses.

Thought it might make ya'll feel good that he is doing fine. I personally am glad that he is not stressing out in the middle of all the other horses. He seems to be much more comfy a little bit away from the main group,

The girls have seen him on the feed grounds also. So apparently he is coming in to munch and then taking his girls out away from the competition.

So all is well in Shingletown and at the WHS and our beloved man is doing well.

I LOVE the fact that lots of you enjoyed SEVEN TEARS INTO THE SEA so much that you've read it over and over again since it came out three years ago. The book still haunts me, too.
Lately I've heard from readers wanting to talk (at least online) about and trade predictions about what MIGHT happen after the story ends, with others who've read the book.
I haven't done much research yet, but I did run across this http://www.simonsays.com/content/book.cfm?tab=1&pid=505320&er=9780689864421
If you run across any other places online where people are talking about SEVEN TEARS, I hope you'll let me know at [email protected]
Have a lovely summer Sunday,

Horse Guy

Happy Friday,
When I'm interviewed, I'm often asked if all my readers are girls. Nope, they're not. Although girls and women make up about 90% of my readers, I hear from men and guys, too.
And one of them just updated his website, so I thought I'd let you take a peek into the world of a PHANTOM STALLION guy.
Meet Joel --


And don't miss his artwork! I wish I could get him to paint a mural for ME!
