Celebrating With a FREE eBook & Friendly Fill Ins

   Bentley will be celebrating his birthday on Sunday, December 3rd. I will be publishing a special post on that day to share his day along with our biggest giveaway ever!

   Having a dog is supposed to change your life. You are welcoming another member of the family when you bring home that wriggly wrinkled puppy. If you are really lucky, that pup becomes your “heart dog.” To me, that means a connection that goes beyond the normal human/dog bond. Bentley is that dog for me. 
   He inspired my book series, The Returns and The Returns 2~Showstoppers
   In honor of his 10th birthday, The Returns eBook will be FREE worldwide beginning today, December 1 through Sunday, December 3, 2017. This is not a story about my dog even though he is on the cover. 
Bentley Basset Hound is my cover dog on The Returns

Here is the blurb that you’ll find on Amazon: 
   What happens if you arrive at the Pearly Gates before your time?
   F.B.I. Agent Bentley Clanton finds out the hard way as he is directed to a little-known area devoted to correcting glitches in the longevity system. The Returns Department specializes in finding appropriate bodies for “early arrivals” before sending them back to earth. It seemed an acceptable solution until Bentley realizes his new body includes long velvety ears, four stubby legs with giant paws, and a tail. Helping him adjust to life as a Basset Hound is his rookie Guardian Angel, along with three other canine Returns.
   Laugh along as a delightful Golden Retriever, a feisty Chihuahua, and Flamboyant Westie join Bentley to form an unlikely brotherhood of crime-fighting heroes. The Returns takes you on a fun-loving, junk food eating adventure through the exciting streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
    I hope that you enjoy reading The Returns and that we can share some laughs together. If you love it, a review on Amazon or your blog would be awesome…just saying!

• I can’t believe puppy mill puppies are still sold.
• I have never been on Craigslist. 
• Going into December, the weather outside is warm during the day and cool at night. 70’s to upper 40’s.
• My current weakness is belly rubs. Who am I kidding? Belly rubs are always my weakness.

  10. I think every dog will become your heartdog when it joins your family. Every time we get a dog, it becomes our heartdog after a while. When we looses one dog we think we never can love any dog more, but fortunetely the new dog suddenly is our heartdog.
