Chad and Sky

While creating slides for a book trailer for Thick as Thieves, I went to a lot of Photoshoping trouble to put a buckskin horse with Chad. I can't believe how well it worked! The original horse (in the "before" picture on the right) is not very pretty, and definitely NOT a buckskin!
This new one of Sky is better, and the background is in the CA San Joaquin Valley.

  2. Wow! That is an amazing difference, I like it. I also like the new picture of Mitch better, I think he looked a little too old in the other one, and I just couldn't fit his personality with the way he looked ;)

    1. I have such loyal readers. Ira-Grace made my Andrea Carter and the Price of Truth book trailer, and Calamity Rene asked if she could make the Thick as Thieves trailer. I said, "sure," since I have lost my Movie Maker program somewhere. I sent her all the slides today, and I'll post it when she finishes it.

    2. And Dr. Weaver's office is located on Kern Street. See this link for a map of Fresno. I haven't marked the doc's office (I can't think of everything, LOL), but you can get an idea.

    3. And there were plenty of places to eat. Book 6, Price of Truth, mentions the Sequoia Bar and Restaurant (a real place) where Justin takes Andi and Rosa to lunch. There are various other cafes and eating places, and every hotel also had a dining room.

  6. Is Chad's horse, Sky a boy or girl?

  7. Sky is a gelding (a stallion that has been castrated so it can't father a foal). Geldings make great horses and are the usual saddle horses; mares are sometimes moody.
