News: Brumbies Series at Tom Quilty 50th Anniversary National Endurance Championships

Paula Boer, author of the Brumbies series, attended the Tom Quilty 50th Anniversary National Endurance Championships, held at Del Rio Resort at Wiseman’s Ferry on the Hawkesbury River (New South Wales, Australia). Given the auspicious anniversary, it was a huge event and Paula, who was once an endurance rider herself, enjoyed the proceedings and had the opportunity to sell her signed Brumbies series books. She stated it was an exciting, enjoyable, and successful experience.

There were over 350 riders in the event, which took place from midnight 5th June to midnight 6th June. The ride is in 5 legs with vet checks and rest periods between each leg so overall elapsed ride time is more than the 18 hours 8 minutes and 4 seconds! No wonder they call it endurance!

Here is Paula at her stand at the event:

Paula had the opportunity to speak to many of the participants, and a great deal of interest was given to her 5-book series – reflected in healthy sales.

An example of one of the participants she met was Alissa Woods, 13, who lives in Queensland. She started her endurance career in May 2012 and had her first attempt at a Quilty buckle in June 2013 (age 11) but vetted out on the first leg. She came 11th out of 22 junior entrants. Alissa is a reader of Horsewyse Magazine and Paula will be doing an interview with her for the next edition. The following photograph shows Paula with Alyssa.

When city girl Louise moves to the country, she discovers the mountain brumbies are to be killed for pet food. She and Ben, a local farm boy, determine to save as many of the wild horses as they can. Despite opposition, they arrange a muster, but nothing goes according to plan.

Following in the hoof-prints of “The Silver Brumby” and “The Man from Snowy River”, this horse-packed adventure encounters challenges through some of the toughest territory in Australia.

The book is richly illustrated by artist and writer, Rowena Evans.

New Chap eBook Title: Of Emus and Seahorses

Very happy to announce the release of a collection of flash fiction and short stories, in chap ebook format, Of Emus and Seahorses, by Paula Boer.

Of Emus and Seahorses cover

An emu struggles to raise his offspring and a seahorse dances with his mate before nurturing her eggs inside his pouch, two examples of males that carry the responsibility for caring for their young. From a crocodile dealing with the extremes of drought and flood, a humpback whale migrating thousands of kilometres with her calf, to a whirligig beetle escaping predatory fish, this collection of short stories provides insight to some of the challenges faced by Australia’s fascinating animals.

Paula Boer’s stories take the view of iconic Australian fauna, wrapped in scientific fact.

For only US$0.99, this short work will delight and edify you. Of Emus and Seahorses will soon be available in all good online stores, but can be bought now through the IFWG Publishing eBook Store.
