This blog was supposed to be about a piano recital I attended at The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University.

HOWEVER, I forgot the flashdrive with the blog, and I’m at work, so, I’ll use the opportunity to invite everyone to participate in a Scavenger Hunt to celebrate my upcoming release (October 29th) of Hot Spanish Nights from The Wild Rose Press ( written under my pen name Bianca Swan.
Hot Spanish Nights is about a rejoneador (mounted bullfighter), so I included a photo of a beautiful Andalusian horse.

I’m offering some fun prizes for finding Halloween words hidden in Dana Frye’s posts. The link to the hunt is:

There is a grand prize and other prizes as well.

The Hunt is on! Join us for the fun.

    That Linda knows her horses! Bianca loves to ride the stallions, too.

    Will check out the hunt on the other blogs.

    THanks for dropping by girls! I hadn't intended this as a promo day, but when one works, aargh it interferes with fun.

    Yikes! Blogger ate my comment! I'm sure I left one, but it's not here. Anyway, love the picture and the scavenger hunt will be fun. I once got to see the Royal Lipperzonner (sp) practice in Vienna, they was awesome. There was a notice not to applaud them because they knew they were that good.
