Suki59's Fanfiction

Hey look! My book’s on a horse’s booty!

I’m honored and tickled pink to see the cover of Drop Dead Gorgeous plastered onto a horse’s rump for all to see.

Thank you to North Carolina artist, Kim Attwooll, for Rudy the well-read horse, which is part of The Art of the Horse, a community arts project and fundraiser orchestrated by Our Carolina Foothills, a nonprofit organized to educate the public about the small towns of the Carolina Foothills.

Kim is one of only 12 artists chosen to decorate one of the 15 fiberglass horses which will all be auctioned off on August 19 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina.

Kim’s choice in designing her horse was to honor the rich literary history of the Carolina Foothills by covering Rudy with book covers of works by local authors.

I’m proud to say I lived in the dreamy little town of Tryon, North Carolina, when Drop Dead Gorgeous was published. Kim also used the cover of The Complete Tryon Diary by Susan McNabb (my serious grown-up name), a collection of newspaper columns published in the Tryon Daily Bulletin.

    How cool! Are those currently on display in Tryon? If so I might have to take a drive up and see them. My daughter loves horses and would appreciate that type of art. 🙂
