Christmas offer on 'The Horses'

Elaine Walker

As the festive season is upon us again, I have a special offer on The Horses with the idea of a Christmas gift for friends who love horses, or reading - or both! During December, every copy of The Horses comes with a mane/hair decoration and a gift-tag bookmark.

Each one is different - a few examples are below.

The price is £13 inc. UK postage

The novel is suitable for older teenagers and adult readers.

Reviewers say -

‘…a compelling hybrid of realistic family drama and ecological fable set on a remote Scottish croft….An uplifting and open-hearted novel’

‘….a book for aficionados of magic realism and lovers of horses .... a story of environmental disaster and recovery exhibiting a true storyteller’s sensibility. Reading this novel is like eating a really enjoyable meal.’

Latest news and Christmas offer

Elaine Walker

I've been busy with a variety of writing projects this year - my excuse for not updating these pages more often, of course, but also true! I've given a talk for readers of Your Horse magazine at Bolsover Castle and attended the opening of the new Line of Kings exhibition at The Tower of London, for which I was a consultant.

I've also written the presentation pack for a new book of stamps on 'The Working Horse' for the Royal Mail's Special Collections for 2014 and just completed my fourth book on horses, which will be out next year. The title isn't settled yet so details of that are still to come.

I'm currently working on a collection of songs and a short story for a project based on the archives of the North Wales Hospital (Denbigh Asylum) for the North Wales Mental Health Research Project - no horses at all this time, which does make a change.

For more on the project, see:

I'm also working on a chapter for a collection of essays on the Duke of Newcastle, so the horses come galloping back pretty quickly.

And suddenly it's Christmas again, so I am offering 3 copies of 'The Horses', for £25 including postage this festive season.

I have a small stock of Horse and To Amaze the People with Pleasure and Delight for horse-lovers and also Teaching Creative Writing and Steve's Band - if you'd like to make up a package including one or more of these titles, please get in touch via the Book Sales page, and I'll give you a discounted price.
