Happy Summer, friends and fans! Thanks for stopping by!! The BIG news this summer is that the first book in the Dogfather Series is FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME! Check out any retailer and download Sit...Stay...Beg for free! I'm so excited that the response to this promotion has been overwhelmingly positive...so much so that I'm getting LOTS of readers asking about the entire series! If you click on the Dogfather Series page, you'll see all the books currently available (6 in total) and the next two scheduled but not yet for sale.
In mid-August, book seven, Double Dog Dare, will be released! I'm finishing this one now and I am in love with this story (brace for your heart to be stolen by Stella!) and think fans will love it, too. After that, there may be another holiday novella (cover not yet released, story not yet formed...this is why my life is exciting!) and, of course, you can expect Old Dog New Tricks, when the Dogfather himself finds love. (That story I know and cover I love!)
If you want to know the very day that I have new book released, please subscribe to my newsletter. I only send them when there is actual news, I promise! I don't do long pre-orders for books, so regular readers know the best way to keep up with the series is via my newsletter. And when you sign up, be sure to add your birthday and get a surprise from me.
Remember I donate a portion of sales from every book in the series to Alaqua Animal Refuge, where every cover in the series was shot (with rescue dogs on every cover and local dog lovers as models). So far, we've donated more than $6,000 and fully expect that number to go up, up, up. All because of my wonderful, supportive readers. So dive into the whole series and save some precious pooches!
My other news this summer: the second book in the Dogfather Series, New Leash on Life, has been nominated for a RITA (tm) Award for Best Mid-Length Contemporary Novel of the year -- the highest honor a romance writer can receive! The winner will be announced later this month!
If you love the series, love dogs, love my books, or just love to connect with other like-minded readers, please join my private Dogfather Fans facebook page! I share snippets right from my manuscript in progress, have weekly (sometimes daily) giveaways, and talk openly about my process, my characters, and my life. It's a page where we celebrate "tails and tales" and all readers are welcome!
