They're here.....

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

No, that's not Carol Anne alerting us of poltergeists. It's copies of my book!
 
 
 
FINALLY!
 
It's been such a long road but I just got my first shipment today!
 
Yippee!!
 
I'm really pleased with the way they look and the quality of the book! We had a little shipping headache. I was supposed to have them last week, which would have been perfect since I didn't have to work all weekend and could start shipping them out but the important thing is that they're here now!
 
I have a Facebook page and just set up a Twitter account so I've been running a presale and have sold a handful. I've reached out to some shelters and rescues prior to donating the book to them but only a few have been responsive at all, which is a little disappointing, but that's ok! There's always the next shelter. Sadly, there are hundreds around the country.
 
A few friends with children have suggested contacting schools and since I talk about the book everywhere I go, the nurse at my doctor's office even suggested the pediatric department of hospitals. I never would have thought of that so I'm contacting some old colleagues from my former life to see if that's an option.
 
I may be biased, but I truly believe that this is a special message that needs to be shared. However, as with the whole publishing process, it's trial and error as I muddle my way along.
 
If any of you are interested in purchasing a copy, the link below will give you the special 10% off pricing that I have set up for the next 30 days for shelters and rescues. The price is already reflected.
 
 
AND...if you're so inclined, you can follow me on Twitter or Facebook.
 
 
Let's save some senior dogs!

    1. Thank you! You're right. Just today, I was at the pet store and I asked the manager about putting a flyer on their bulletin board. He asked me if I wanted to set up a table and do a book signing! :-)

    3. I know!

      I thought about that but they both bark too much when they're in there. I'm going to try walking Sophie around there this weekend and see how she does.

      I miss Bernie. She would have been perfect! She never moved!

  8. Hello Chrissy. I just discovered your blog by searching for a favorite Far Side cartoon (I'm not content), which you used for a post over a year ago, one that I could relate to. Seems like some good things have happened since then. Congratulations on publishing your book! Seems like I run into so many people involved with dog assistance programs. A friend and co-worker runs an unwanted dog rescue program here in southern Virginia and another friend has a kickstarter for a program that trains dogs to help wounded veterans. And there are others. I don't think you can be involved in a dog rescue or any dog project and be a bad person.

    1. Hi Carol!
      I'm so glad you stumbled upon my blog and decided to come and visit!

      Yes, thank you! Great things have happened with the publication of my book. There are so many dogs out in shelters and it's great to hear about your friend making a positive difference for them. I'll have to go check out your friend's Kickstarter. It sounds like a wonderful project!
