When I'm not keepin' all these Fillies in line, I'm practicing my roping so I can catch me a cowboy. Me and Jasper (my mule) are two peas in a pod. Both of us are as crotchety as all get-out.

  1. Always thrilled when books I love get the kudos! Keep on writing, ladies. I promise I will keep reading.

  2. Congratulations, ladies. I have read most of these and they deserve the nominations and awards. Best of luck ladies.

  3. Thanks for the congrats. I’m so excited to be a NRCA finalist. And I’m thrilled that we have so many Fillies who are receiving nods for their exceptional work. It’s a wonderful time to be alive.

  4. Thanks, Julie, Kirsten, and Patricia for your best wishes and kudos. I’m so proud of all of the fillies for everything we’ve accomplished over the years, and of course, for me personally, I truly thank you for reading our anthologies. If we don’t have readers, our stories sure don’t receive recognition … so thank you, thank you readers and followers! Big hugs, Phyliss
