Book Signing Event

Thank You Thank You Thank You to my friends & family for the support over the past eighteen months. Some of you knew what I was up to; others came in when I was almost finished writing. Everyone has been on board since I've finished and have been waiting for this day.

I've been a writer my whole life and this is in the top five most exciting things I've ever done.

For those of you in the Lake Country and Surrounding Areas, I'm inviting you to come to my first book signing event on Saturday, April 21 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at The Doggy Bag in Downtown Oconomowoc.

If you have some time to spend afterwards, please join us at Laker's Sports Bar, just four doors down, for Brooklynn Marti's CD Release Party. This is her third CD and it's called "It's Time". 

Brooklynn's extended family have been like family to me and my family since I was about three years old. They know all the dogs from my childhood and if pressed, I'm sure they could recall some memories of each of them. I'm thrilled to be working with this very talented woman and her band.

I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of you, too!

If you don't live in the Lake Country Area but are interested in a copy of the book, please visit:

https://www.createspace.com/3818853 and use the password: Isabella - It's important to cap the I.

(For those of you who don't know, our cover girl is Isabella, the Bearded Collie. I wont spoil it by telling you her story her but know that in our opinion, she benefitted the most out of any dog who lived at The Lodge)

It will be available on Amazon within a week or so but it takes a little longer to create that link. If you are an Amazon fan and have a Kindle/Kindle App, "A Foster's Tail" is available for your e-reader too!

Thank You again to all of my friends for all your love and support during this process. It has been the most incredible learning experience for me (and my family).

Hoping to see you on the 21st at The Doggy Bag in Downtown Oconomowoc,

Thank You for Thinking Rescue! Thank You for Reading!

Here It Is!

Ok, Fluffy Fans! I've worked hard all week and was able to deliver "A Foster's Tail" to you before the end of the month. It is presently available to you only online to be delivered to your home. To order:

https://www.createspace.com/3818853 - Use the password: Isabella - Be sure to capitalize the "I"

In about a week or so the book will be available via Amazon.com to purchase a paperback copy. Right now, you are able to purchase a Kindle version of the book.

When I receive the copies I ordered, I purchased 75 to start, they will definitely be available at The Doggy Bag in Downtown Oconomowoc and Books & Company, also in Oconomowoc.

If you live in southeastern Wisconsin or even Central Wisconsin, and would like to see the book or maybe even invite me over for a book signing, please let me know. I would love to drive over and meet everyone!

Thank you for your patience and support! Looking forward to seeing pictures of your rescue dogs on the "A Foster's Tail" Facebook page!

Thank you for thinking rescue! Thank you for reading!

A Slight Speedbump

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted about the Kindle release of  "A Foster's Tail."

Thank you to the folks who purchased it and have read it on your Kindles and Kindle Reader Apps.

For those of you who don't have those electronic toys just yet, or you prefer your good old fashioned paperback book, I've been working hard to bring it to you.

I am self publishing this book and have learned loads through this process.  Like when the website tells you to load a picture of certain parameters, you probably should or your book cover is going to look like "dukey". (I have remedied that earlier this week and now the Kindle Cover is an exact match of the paperback cover.)

I submitted the whole book last week and got approval to order a proof.  The proof came two days early and I spent yesterday going over it. Once I get approval from the website people, I will be ordering another proof just to be sure it is what I want and then, then, I will order copies to pass out to local businesses and some not quite so local businesses.

It will be available online as a Kindle at Amazon.com - Actually it has been available since February 29. The paperback will be available at local pet and book stores and I'll let you know those when we get a little closer.  If you don't live in the Lake Country Area, and I know that my friends down south would have a long commute, it will be available at Amazon.com as well as this storefront:

https://www.createspace.com/3818853. It is password protected and the password is: Isabella - please enter it with a capital I.

You will be able to purchase the book through CreateSpace before Amazon, as it takes a little more time to get the Amazon page up and rolling. Feel free to check the CreateSpace storefront out. I'm pretty excited about it.

I'll make sure to make announcements here and on Facebook (A Foster's Tail), when it is all officially official.

That's all the news I have for now. Again, thank you to our friends who have already read the book. Thank you to the Facebook friends as well. I'm hoping that if you have a Fluffy Dog or even a rescue dog, that you might have a moment to put their picture on the wall.  If  you've read the book, please private message me too! I love to read to those and I will repost (anonymously) your comment.

Thank You for Thinking Rescue. Thank You for Reading!
