I Am Feeling Awesome!

    One of the coolest things about writing my book series, The Returns, is how popular some of the quotes have become with pet lovers. It is a great feeling to know that my words have struck a chord. 
   I was recently contacted by Penguin Random House Australia concerning my most popular quote:
“The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.”
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”
   They asked permission to use it in an upcoming book by vlogger, TV presenter, techie, taste tester and Australia’s #1 ambassador for awesome, Elly Awesome! It is titled, “How to Feel Awesome Every Day”. I was happy to give them my okay after seeing the adorable illustration and learning more about the book.
   I received an advanced copy of the book this week and wanted to share it with you. It is a fun-filled book with lots of ideas to help you feel awesome!
   “How to Feel Awesome Every Day” won’t be available until October 2, 2017 but you can pre-order it now from PenguinBooks. I wish Elly and her book great success and am proud to be a part of making every day awesome for people.  
   This is the third book that has shared my quotes from The Returns & The Returns2~Showstoppers. This quote can also be found in Dogs That Capture Our Hearts and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Volunteering & Giving Back. It is also listed on 50 Famous Dog Quotes, in several Modern Dog magazine issues, Huffington Post, and countless social media accounts. It never fails to make me feel awesome every day!
You can fall in love with The Returns by fetching your paperback copy on Amazon! 
If you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, you can read both books for free or download the eBook!
