While I Work On The Second*, Did You Know There Is A First?

Every now and then I enjoy taking the liberty–since it is MY blog and all–of promoting my first book. It’s a children’s book about pet loss called Remembering Ruby: For Families Living Beyond the Loss of a Pet. I wrote it after the death of our first beagle, Bijoux (bee-shoo), who lived a great life for her thirteen years on earth.

Besides being a great book (hey, if I don’t love it, how can I expect anyone else to love it??), it’s beautiful: my sister created the cover and did the photo editing and the page layouts on the inside. In fact, check out the cover:

Gorgeous, right? (I told you!)

The last post I wrote about it has a little more information about the structure of the book. It’s available on Amazon and from other online sellers like Barnes & Noble, and it makes a lovely gift for families who suffer the loss of a four-legged family member. Please keep it in mind and tell your friends: obviously the topic is not a happy one, but the story is uplifting and I have been told by many that it helps the grieving process. (It helped mine, to write it!)

*By the way, it is my deepest hope that I will have some news on my second book in the next couple of months. Fingers crossed!

    Even though it's more family geared, I cannot tell you how awesome it was to read this as our family was making the decision to possibly put our lab down. Even though we ended up not doing it (yet), it made me feel a million times better.

    As for your second book, I am CROSSING MY FINGERS EVERY DAY FOR YOU! 🙂
