    Dear Ms. Anderson:
    Good News! Amazon and Barnes&Noble are taking orders now for Horsefever, due out by March 16th!

    I’m the social media coordinator for Lee Hope, author of the new debut novel Horsefever on New Rivers Press.

    In Horsefever, Nikole Swensen has the drive and raw talent to compete in the rigorous sport of horse eventing and win. But fear holds her back from realizing her full potential. So her husband, a wealthy Vermont landowner, hires Gabe, a gifted former eventer, half paralyzed from a jumping accident. Before long, a powerful spiritual and physical attraction develops between Nikki and Gabe amid the sensual world of horses and riding. As Nikki moves to higher levels of competition, their respective spouses, Cliff and Carla, grow jealous. The two couples become lost in a tangle of ambition and passion, lust and suspicion. Inspired by an actual murder case, Horsefever will penetrate the hearts of suspense lovers, horse lovers, athletes, and all those drawn to the connections between animals and humans.

    Lee Hope is naturally looking for reviews of Horsefever. To that end, we are happy to send you a pdf or copy of the book for review. We would love the opportunity for her to guest blog on your site. For blogging, she can speak to many of the themes of the book including sexuality and spirituality, the power of athleticism, horses, and gleaning a story inspired by real life events.

    Lee Hope is editor-in-chief of Solstice: A Magazine of Diverse Voices (SolLitMag). Her fiction has received a Theodore Goodman Award, a Pennsylvania Council of the Arts Fellowship, and a Maine Arts Commission Fellowship. She has published stories in numerous literary journals, such as: Witness, The New Virginia Review, The North American Review, Epiphany, and Sou'wester. Her short story "What to Take in Case of Fire" received an honorable mention in AMERICAN FICTION VOLUME 13 (New Rivers Press, 2014), winner of the 2015 Midwest Book Award for an anthology. Lee founded and directed a low- residency MFA program in Maine and played a role in founding Pine Manor College's MFA program. She has taught creative writing and literature at various universities. She is currently president of the Solstice Institute for Creative Writing, a nonprofit, and she teaches for Changing Lives Through Literature, which brings literature to people on probation.
    We look forward to hearing from you. She’s available to blog during spring and summer of 2016.

    We are impressed with your website and readership and think there could be some collaboration between Lee and your site. Please let us know at how we can work together at your earliest convenience.
    We’d love for your site to check out Lee’s website for more information: Attached you’ll find two recent reviews of Horsefever from the Library Journal and Booklist Review. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Margaret Garcia
    Social Media Coordinator for Lee Hope

    PS I can't seem to attach the two reviews but would be happy to email them to you.
