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.

"WHINE AT 9" PODCAST INTERVIEW
I was lucky enough to be interviewed by the fabulous Nancy Berk on her radio podcast titled "Whine at 9." The show is "the free weekly podcast that showcases humor, insight, and success." Nancy's great, and I got to meet her at the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop (all for humor writers) in 2010.
You can to the interview here as we discuss how dogs are getting involved in the political season.
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!
The dog on the left belongs to Pat Caporali. The one
on the right to Bill Shunn. Thanks, you two!
