YA Indie Spotlight: David Michael

Hi Everyone!

Great news! For the next two months I will be featuring a YA indie author on both Tuesdays and Fridays. Double the indie love!

So without further ado, today I'm pleased to introduce author David Michael.

David is promoting his YA novel: The Girl Who Ran with Horses.


It's summer vacation and all 13-year-old Stevie Buckbee wants is to be close to her family again and to ride her horses--especially Jack Rabbit, her first horse all her own. But past tragedies threaten her plans before the summer has a chance to begin. Even as she discovers that she is somehow able to communicate with Jack Rabbit and the other horses on the family ranch, she finds she can no longer get through to her Dad and brother Blake. And what good is it to be able to run with the horses if no matter how fast and how far she runs, everything she knows and loves is lost? 

RATING: PG (for minor language, drinking) 


Most days, David Michael is a software developer and a writer. Some days, he's a writer and a software developer. Other days, he's an amateur photographer. Because, really, who is the same person every day? David is the designer and developer of DavidRM Software's The Journal, personal journaling software for Windows. He has also designed and developed video games, and has written two nonfiction books and numerous articles about video game development. David lives with his wife and kids in Tulsa, Oklahoma. David blogs about writing at Guns & Magic: gunsandmagic.com You can contact David at: david@gunsandmagic.com. 

The Girl Who Ran with Horses is available for:

And at Smashwords 

With the 13-year-old protagonist, this book looks like it will appeal to the younger YA/tween demographic. The reviews look great, and it comes highly recommended for any horse lover. It is priced at $4.99.

David has some other titles out as well. Most of these are geared toward the adult audience; they're priced as low as $.99, and a few are available as paperbacks, so be sure to check these out, too!
