For the first time, these three novellas are collected into one volume: Iron Shoes (Nebula Finalist, Best Novella, 2010); Snow Comes to Hawk’s Folly; and Snowfall.

Iron Shoes

Imogen Hawkes is running out of time. She must come up with enough money to prevent the bank from foreclosing on her farm. All her hopes are pinned on her horse winning the Special Stakes.

But things keep going wrong, and it’s soon clear someone is determined to stop her. As race day draws closer, Imogen finds unexpected sources of help…including the new stallion she’s purchased from Boston, who’s not at all what he seems.

Despite a life spent avoiding it, Imogen learns that magic may be her best ally….

Snow Comes to Hawk’s Folly:
Imogen has the life she’s always wanted. Her farm is thriving, as is her family. But a guest comes to the farm, bringing trouble in his wake. When Imogen’s son disappears, how far will she go to get him back? Is it magic? Or something more mundane? In her family, the mundane is rarely to blame…

Snowfall:
Lourdes Medina has left everything she knows. Following a vision in a dream, she’s gone north to Saratoga Springs to buy back the mare her brother sold out from under her. But the horse’s new owner, Finn, makes her an interesting offer in return for the horse. Against her better judgment, Lourdes becomes entangled in his family’s problems…and it seems she’s unwittingly gained an enemy, a woman who will go to any length to get the husband she wants.

 Praise for Iron Shoes: Tales from Hawk’s Folly Farm

“It is exceedingly rare for a book to make its way into my shelf of comfort reads. This one may get worn out with re-reading. But reading the beauty and love in all three of the novellas in Iron Shoes soothes my soul.”—Abyss & Apex

“Cheney has crafted a lovely story of romance, magic, intrigue, and horse racing set in upstate New York early in the last century.”—SFRevu (Iron Shoes)

Free Ebook: Iron Shoes

I have iscarousela free promotion going on over at InstaFreebie for an ebook copy of the Iron Shoes trilogy.

The trilogy is a series of Historical Fantasy novellas set in 1905-1909 Saratoga Springs, and in keeping with the racing history of that town, they’re also about….horses.

Well, not your average horses, because Imogen Hawkes has a secret: she was fathered by a puca, an Irish horse shape-shifter. That secret has shaped every part of her life, even though she’s always tried to hide it. But now trouble has come to her farm and her horse has to win the big race in order to save it…

So if you’re game for a group of novellas set in that world (two of which are also Romance) then you might want to give this freebie a try.

(This is the first time I’ve used this service, so I have no clue how this will play out. If all the books are gone quickly, I’ll add some more.)

And please leave a review if you like it! Reviews are how other readers find writers they like!
