'Tis the season...the season for holiday stories and Christmas capers. I'm so excited to take readers back to Waterford Farm for another Kilcannon Christmas. Bark! The Herald Angels Sing is available to purchase in print and digital formats! Dogfather fans are sure to love this story that features fan favorites Gramma Finnie and Pru Kilcannon on the adventure of a lifetime. There's a dog, of course! And a snowstorm. And an elf parade. And a rifle-toting mountain man. And best of all...there's a little love story from the past that treats readers to an inside glimpse at Gramma's great romance.
I have special news for the readers who prefer print books. The paperback edition of Bark! also includes Santa Paws is Coming to Town, last year's (much shorter) holiday novella. Now collectors can have two Kilcannon Christmas stories in one.
You want to know what else is happening with the Kilcannons? Molly and Trace are getting married...and you can read all about it in A Rose By Any Other Name -- a free short story exclusively for newsletter subscribers. Want to attend the wedding? Sign up for my newsletter, and we'll send you the story! I won't bombard you with news, but this is the best way to find out when I have a new book released because I don't do long pre-orders. And when you sign up, be sure to add your birthday for a surprise from me.
Haven't read the Dogfather series yet? Well, the first book in the Dogfather Series is FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME! Check out any retailer and download Sit...Stay...Beg for free! Then you can devour the whole series! Which is now eight books! Have your read them all?
SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING THE DOGFATHER SERIES: The number one question I am asked by fans is: Will the series dnd after Daniel's book comes out next year? The Dogfather Series is NOT GOING TO END any time soon! There are four Mahoney cousins yet to find love and I have plans for something special beyond that. Trust me! I'd like to see this series go for 15-20 books...as long as you keep reading and I keep thinking of ways to keep it fresh. But I'm humbled and thrilled by the question and so happy to have struck a chord with readers. Thank you!
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). By sharing a percentage of first month's sales plus being able to augment that periodically when sales are super strong, we've donated well over $8,000 so far and fully expect that number to go up, up, up. All because of my wonderful, supportive readers. I thank you, Alaqua thanks you, and the precious rescue animals who find their forever home are wagging their tails with love.
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!
