About Natalie Keller Reinert
In 2019 I was laid off from my marketing job and was given the opportunity to make it or break it as a full-time writer. So here I am, turning a side-hustle into my main source of income. It's not easy, and it's definitely scary. I am used to turning out one book every 10-12 months, mostly written a few hours per week around my chaotic work/travel schedule. Now, I am challenging myself to turn out a book every four months. I have to, if I want to survive on the huge swings in royalty income. Royalties are paid monthly, which means in a month with a new book release, my income spikes -- and every other month, it declines by a lot.
In order to supplement my income and help keep me on track with this extremely demanding publishing schedule, I'll be writing more exclusive Patreon content including novellas featuring Jules and Alex, the stars of Ambition and Other People's Horses, plus chapters as I write them from the upcoming equestrian novel Grabbing Mane, and other work as it goes into production. Preview that work for free at this post!
I aim for two chapters per week of Grabbing Mane and two chapters per month of A Thousand Tiny Bites, the Alex & Jules Novella. I also share a new blog post every Monday.
When you subscribe to my Patreon, you're not only getting exclusive content and sneak peeks at upcoming work, you're also actively supporting my writing. Without Patreon support, I have to spend more time freelancing, and less time writing fiction. I might even have to go back to marketing full-time, which would sabotage my efforts to write more than one book per year. The more supporters we can bring to the team, the more time I can spend writing about Jules, Alex, Grace and other new characters we haven't even met yet.
So, thank you! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting me as an author.
About me... just in case we haven't met yet.
My novels are bestsellers in their categories, and have been nominated for one of the richest literary prizes in America. They regularly top the bestseller lists for Equestrian Sports and Horses at Amazon. Ambition has been a runaway bestseller since its release in 2013, and has been featured in numerous top book lists from publications like Horse Illustrated.
My goal for each book is to create one of my signature Horse Books for Grown-Ups, written with an eye for the everyday madness that is life in the equestrian business. Ever since my first novel, The Head and Not the Heart, became a hit for its honest look at the emotional why behind equestrian life, the concept has worked, touching the lives of countless equestrians.
My backlist includes:
The Alex and Alexander Series (Horse Racing)
1. The Head and Not the Heart
2. Other People's Horses (Semi-finalist for the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award)
3. Claiming Christmas
4. Turning For Home (Top 3 Finalist for the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award)
The Eventing Series
The Show Barn Blues Series
1. Show Barn Blues
2. Horses in Wonderland
We're horsewomen now, and we're so much more than re-reads of The Saddle Club. We've grown up. Our problems are big. Our joys are bigger.
