My new book, RED DOG / BLUE DOG, comes out today! (Comment to enter the giveaway contest)

Oh my gosh the big day is finally here! My new humor book, RED DOG / BLUE DOG: WHEN POOCHES GET POLITICAL, comes out today, July 31. So exciting! There’s some basic info about the book below, but I’ll just skip to the giveaway info:

Winners can pick from the following: 2012 Guide to Literary Agents, 2012 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market, Formatting & Submitting Your Manuscript, Create Your Writer Platform, Red Dog / Blue Dog, and How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack.

Comment within 2 weeks to enter. (UPDATE: Renee Carter Hall, PoesChild, and sddblake won.)




RED DOG / BLUE DOG is a photo collection of dogs doing stereotypically liberal and conservative things. It rips on both sides equally and is designed to be pure levity in an election season. It makes a good gift book for dog lovers and politics gurus. I dedicated the book to my flabby dog, Graham, who, though he contributes nothing to the household, is a big snuggly ball of love — and I am grateful for him. As my dog is a rescue himself, I am excited to donate a portion of the proceeds to rescue organizations and no-kill shelters.

You can find RED DOG / BLUE DOG on Amazon here. Find the book’s accompanying website here. And I want to give one big shout-out to ALL of those who submitted photos for the book’s consideration. This book came about with the help of many, and was a labor of love (and fun!).

    We all need relief from the election frenzy. Too bad politics couldn’t be housed under fantasy or horror stories and shelved if not wanted. I also need relief from editing my book–your contest is better than another cup of coffee!


    Looking forward to reading your material. Look forward to reading anything that can forward my writing and help make things smoother even though we all know they are never smooth.

    I give this book four paws up, five tail wags, six butt sniffs and a perfect 10 doggie biscuits! Congratulations to you and your four-legged friends!

      Actually, my son will too. He just published his first novel, also a political one, called The Bull. .( I’ll have to get a copy for him, too.

    Set the dogs on the Political pundants ;). Chuck Sambuchino has shed new lite on “Who let the Dogs Out!”
    Best of luck with the book. I’m “itching” to get my paws on a copy!!

    I have two Blue Dogs and they would love for me to read this to them so they can make fun of the Red Dogs. (Although they both agree that the Red Dog who likes to read The Patriot Act is hot.)

    Um.. Hilarious! I love the Dog with Glasses… about Taxes… Too funny! I’m definitely getting this for my friend who loves dogs & Politics!

    Your book looks like a winner to me. In case you’re planning a sequel, my poodle Pepper was just bathed and groomed and says he’s ready for his closeup.

    Election time is filled with so many negative times that it is a breath of fresh air to have some humor added in. I am a pushover for dogs so that makes it even better. Thanks for the oportunity to preview and perhaps win a copy of what is sure to be a best seller.
