We live in a strange new era during which authors are being required to ‘market’ their own work … though no one actually WANTS authors to market to them, and every book venue expressly forbids it. This market-driven change not a good thing, but there is no choice.
Help from readers is most important now … I made a special page for readers willing to help spread the word by leaving a review comment or rating the work online.
If you have a moment and would like to help share the trilogy, please consider offering your thoughts for others.
It is very important to the success of the trilogy … Thank You!
Catching up with Goodreads… a great site for booklovers. Fun new Contests & Giveaways coming … both for newly-published Book #3: Into the Dark, and also Book #2: The Golden Spark (which needs to catch up as the ‘middle book’ in the trilogy).

Here’s a descriptive new review of Eclipsed by Shadow posted by Morning Glow (aka Amanda), on Novel Addiction:
From the back of the book: Eclipsed by Shadow is the first book of an exciting new trilogy, The Legend of the Great Horse, a journey through the ages when horses were everyday companions in work, war, sport and spectacle. The story is told through the eyes of a young woman, a horse-crazy teenager traveling through time with a knowledge of 21st Century horsemanship as her only defense. ”
Well, wow, the back of the book really doesn’t do this series justice. It makes the whole story sound flippant and childish, even. But really, I found this book to be far more powerful than the blurb. Yes, we do follow a young girl (she’s 15 through most of the book), and yes, she does travel through time, but these aren’t easy things Meagan is dealing with. And despite the young age of the main character, I’m not sure I would give this book to a fifteen year old.. unless he or she was very mature. There are definitely some harsh moments in Eclipsed by Shadow. Not to give too much away, but death, rape, slavery, beatings, etc, are all issues Meagan has to see and live in fear of. All this lends to a very powerful and thrilling tale, definitely, but this book should definitely not be taken lightly.
