Hi, everyone. It’s the Rudster here. Sorry I’ve been out of touch but Mom’s been busy and I don’t type so good when she’s not around.
Exciting things are happening. Book two in the dog walker series, Heir of the Dog, will be out in ten days, and it’s a great book. Especially ‘cause I inherit a wad of dough...er... make that money. Enough to by my own Dingo Bone factory and make treats for all my pals. So go to Amazon, Walden books, Borders, B&N, or another local bookstore and buy one. Heck, buy two or three, and give them out as holiday gifts to the person her grooms your dog, their vet, or their walker. Maybe even your neighbor or kids’ teachers.
And while I’m on the topic of books, remember Best Friends is still getting all the royalty money from the sale of book one, Hounding the Pavement. They’re doin’ a great job taking care of all the pit bulls that wonderful guy (NOT) Michael Vick admitted to abusing and killing a few years ago.
Mom’s also running a contest, and it’s a good one. If you can show proof of giving $250 to Best Friends in the past year, she’s gonna put you in a book. That’s right, you’ll have a story line and everything, your DOGS too. She’ll even let you use their real names (yours too, if you want) There’s just one catch. You have to agree to whatever she writes. If she decides you’d make a perfect killer, then that’s what you might end up being. Ditto, a victim. If you’re lucky, you’ll just be involved in one of the plots, but you won’t know until she writes the story.
And last but not least, here’s a list of places Mom will be signing books:
September 28, 12 – 5, Books in the Park
Waterside Park Norfolk, VA
October 3, 2- 4, Walden Books
Chesapeake Square Mall, Chesapeake VA
October 24, 4 – 5:30, NJRW conference
Renaissance Hotel, Iselin, NJ
October 25, 2- 5, Barnes & Noble
Rt 22, Springfield, NJ
She’ll be at a few more places in November, but they’ll be on her website, so check there for the when and where.
And if you get a minute, drop Mom a line and tell her about your favorite four-legged pal. She still cries because I’m gone every day, even though she’s got Sasha, Belle, and Buckley to keep her company.
Got to run. There’s a whole group of canines waitin’ to play ball, and that’s one thing I really like to do up here in Doggie Heaven.
Talk to you soon,
