RED DOG Book News Roundup: Book at Urban Outfitters, "Whine at 9" Podcast Interview, and I'll Be at Books by The Banks in Cincinnati on Oct. 20, 2012...

The big news concerning my own writing is that my new humor book, RED DOG / BLUE DOG: WHEN POOCHES GET POLITICAL, is in Urban Outfitters. Exciting! Because of the close of Borders, getting your book into any specialty markets -- be that Urban Outfitters, Lowes, Michaels or anywhere else -- is very important. I walked by an UO in Chicago and looked all over the book table for my book, only to be pleasantly surprised to see that the book was, in fact, at the front table next to a bunch of other political stuff.

LOOK AT THESE CUTE DOGS POSING WITH THE BOOK

One of the best parts about the book's release as of this August was how several of the dogs featured in the book posed next to the book, and those images got sent to me by their owners. Look at these cute photos of dogs who star in the book!
