Book release - False Gods by L.R. Trovillion #ya #horses

We're celebrating the release of False Gods by L.R. Trovillion, a lovely ya contemporary... and there's horses! Plus, buying this supports a good cause! See below for details. BTW, I already bought this book and am reading now. It's awesome, easily 4+ stars on my tough scale. I'll be reviewing here shortly.

Hippolyta Books announces the release of False Gods--a Young Adult novel by L. R. Trovillion--available on Amazon in print and ebook.  All proceeds from sales during the months of December and January are being donated to the Glenelg United Methodist Youth Program (  

They say there’s no harm in trying.  Or is there?

Cory Iverson has her sights set on riding in the prestigious Washington International Horse Show—a tall order for even the most experienced competitors.  Problem is, she doesn’t even own a horse.  But there’s an even bigger problem: she’s a quitter.  Not a casual quitter, but a hard-core, serial, when-the-going-gets-tough quitter.  This all starts to change, however, when the opportunity arises to rescue the perfect horse from slaughter and work with an experienced trainer who has the means to get her there.  If she stays the course.

But Cory discovers the road to qualifying for Washington is littered with roadblocks when she finds herself surrounded by problems outside her control: prescription painkillers appear in her mother’s purse; her ballerina sister wastes away before her eyes; her boyfriend is keeping secrets from her; and her normally opinionated trainer becomes strangely evasive. Worst of all, the horse show world proves to be full of dangers, including an unscrupulous trainer headed for the same show who will stop at nothing to win, including killing. 

Unless Cory quits.

About the author:
L. R. Trovillion’s love of the written word began at the early age of ten when she penned her first mystery “novel.”  Since then she’s pursued degrees in Russian language and literature and has earned a living as a translator, teacher, reporter, and editor.  When not writing, she’s at work training and showing her horses or caring for her Maryland farm which she shares with her husband, daughter, and two dogs who think they run the place.
