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!
