Hi, I've been a member for a while but this is my first post!
I just wanted to share a few Bronze Horseman icons I made.
Please comment if you take any and credit is nice, enjoy!

Paullina at the Melbourne cocktail event

I has videos!

I could have recorded Paullina's entire speech, but it's hard work trying to not shake a point and click camera and listen carefully at the same time. Needless to say I regret not recording question time 'cause that was seriously a good laugh. bookwormmel can second me on this.

Mainly Paullina talked about the inspiration for and ideas behind her new book, A Song in the Daylight. Interestingly our very own woop woop of a capital city, Canberra, plays a huge part, and plenty of other anecdotes are shared. But of course Paullina meandered into other territory, like, Alexander, to name but one thing that was of stark interest to us... :P

This is the second time I've gone to see Paullina, and naturally she didn't remember me at all, but hopefully given that this time I so ardently told her I am working on a painting of Tatiana and Alexander (a HUGE SMUTTY, PRACTICALLY PORNOGRAPHIC, CALLING TO MIND DIRTY LAUNDRY IN THE LAKE, CRAMPED STEAMY TENTS, CREME BRULEE ICE CREAM, CARAMEL EYES AND POTATO COUNTERS one) she seemed more excited about it than I was at the prospect (!). Expectations exponentially increased. Of course, this idea to paint TBH scenes has been on my mind ever since I first read The Bronze Horseman, so now that I've told Paullina, I am well and truly signed up for this gig. It's become a commission for myself, and for Paullina, and for you guys (the fans) too.

Paullina's in Australia!

So, Paullina's already in Australia now. By now she'll have been to Sydney and Brisbane, and she's in Melbourne tomorrow! Has anyone had a chance to see her yet? bookwormmel and I are going to the cocktail event at the Arts Centre tomorrow night. Anyone planning to go too (or similar)?

Paullina's new book

Paullina has a new book coming up, A Song in the Daylight. *flails*

Nothing is what it seems...

Larissa Stark is a beautiful woman who plays many roles in her life: wife, mother, devoted friend. She has everything she ever wanted, until a chance encounter with a stranger changes Larissa's idyllic existence forever, leading her to question all the things she once believed were true. Faced with impossible choices and contemplating the unthinkable, Larissa struggles with an eternal mystery: how does one woman follow a divided heart?

Spanning the upscale suburbs of New Jersey, the slums of Manila and the desolate beauty of the Australian outback, A Song in the Daylight is a story of the bonds that unite us and the desires that drive us apart.

From the author of Tully and The Bronze Horseman comes another unforgettable novel of passion and heartbreak.

Sounds like a classic already.

Also, Aussies, Paullina Simons is coming down under again! If you missed her last time, this is your chance to meet her! :)

New Fan & I bring icons

Hi all. I'm Cait from NSW. Seems I am a bit of a late bloomer to the wonderful works of Paullina. But better late than never eh? My austrian pen friend gave me 'The Girl in Times Square' back in '05 when she came to visit me and sadly I wasn't in the right frame of mind to read it and quickly put it down. But last week I picked it up and fell in love! Read it in about 4 days. Loved it. And some of my friends are telling me to read TBH. I will, but I just have to get Spencer out of my system first by reading 'Red Leaves'. I've got it on order at the library, should be here by the weekend ;) Proof (in the form of a fictional character) that older men are better :P

I loved how the family was real. Cause not every family is bright and happy and not everyone has it easy. There are characters like Anne, just out for the money and I know a 'McGill' type haha. I admit it did take me a day to get used to her style of writing in this book. But I got over it quickly and got into its rythym.

Can't wait to go blind reading them all into the wee hours of the night/morning!

I bring icons too ^_^


So there ya have it. Go the Irish by the way :D

'The Bronze Horseman Trilogy'

 Im posting on behalf of a friend:

Do you know the names of Tatiana's family members, as well as the names of Alexander's and Tatiana's children and their spouses.

Unbelievably, I'm, or rather, we, my sisters and I, are still waiting for our copy of the first two books to arrive and seeing as we have only read the third and last book of the trilogy so far, we have yet to read about Tatiana's childhood, so we don't know the names of her family members. 

This is sort of needed quickly since I'm helping my two sisters with a lineage project they have at school and they've decided to use Tatiana and Alexander as an example.

Please help me find/make this list for her!  :-) 


Wallpaper maybe? ;)

once I've downloaded one, so nice icon and it has inspired me to create a wallpaper similar to that lovely icon.
i just have decided to share my work with you, beacuse we all are fans of Paullina Simmons greatest book ever "The Bronze Horseman" (personally, i claim this is  the best  book i've ever read <3). huh, enough this blah-blah.. 

here's my modest "piece of art".

Dark Knight - Joker Cropped

New book covers

*coughs* Just trying to maintain that we're still an active community...

As I'm sure everyone's noticed, the Australian (HarperCollins) covers for most of Paullina Simons works have been re-designed (probably to correspond to the design of Road to Paradise—which I think was released before all these new ones—and revitalise the novels?):

Can still see that the cropped photograph is a consistency in all versions. Any one got any favourites?
