Perfect Present Pairs a Pup and a Paperback

You guys! My dear, sweet friend (and fellow author) Kathleen Irene Paterka (by the way... check out her books!) sent me the sweetest present!

And it's so perfect for me! A dog reading a book!! I mean, could that be any more perfect??



She's the sweetest little pup. (I know she's a "she" cuz I checked...) She fits in the palm of my hand.

And she now has a perfect spot on my shelf with some of my other beloved pups. And she can relax there and read all she wants!
I LOVE her! Thanks again, Kathleen!

I looked and you can't make out a title on her book, but what do you suppose she might be reading?


IN OTHER NEWS...
You may have seen this already on my Facebook author page, but I found out that Amazon has started working on an audio version of RESCUE ME, MAYBE. 

It'll be out in August. I can't wait to HEAR my book! 

And thanks to BlogPaws for hosting!

    1. We love audio books too. We try to always get one (or a few) when we have road trips. (Other than that we don't listen to them much. The hub's commute isn't too bad, and I'm always at home!)

    1. I can't wait to hear it either! I think I'm even more excited about hearing it than I was the first time I held a copy in my hot little hands.

  13. I love that, it IS perfect! Mary had the best comment, that she's reading one of your books! That is great your book will be on audio, I wonder what the voice will be like reading it? I don't think I've ever listened to a book before, but that must be great for people who commute a lot.

    1. I wonder too?? They asked me for some input on the characters and their voices, but other than that it's all up to them. We'll see! I mean... we'll hear!

      We love audiobooks for road trips. They really help the time pass quickly!
