Gourmet Sleuth Dog Treats Review

Here is my very first review of the sites that I run across when searching for dog treats. First of all, I should give my method for searching. It is actually quite simple. I open up a browser window (ok – all of you in the peanut gallery, I said BROWSER, not BOWSER) and in the Google search widget, type … Read More

A Labor Day Break

With today being part of a holiday weekend, I really didn’t get to accomplish much today in the way of writing, marketing, etc. I’ve mulled over some ideas, but that has been about the extent of things.

Another Holiday to Celebrate

Labor Day is upon us and I just thought I’d let you know how we celebrated today. We went to visit GrandMuttMa and GrandPupPaw and that crazy Daisy. We had a pretty good time. Daisy was even crazier this time for some reason than she was last time. But, after Mama helped GrandMuttMa to learn how to access her library … Read More

It’s My Turn

Finally! I can hardly get a paw in edge-wise these days. Mama has been working diligently on her book trailer and doing other things related to promoting Misfit McCabe, that getting time on the internet has been scarce for me. When am I supposed to look up new treat sites for crying out loud. Yes ~ it’s true, I do … Read More

Book Trailer or bust

Today has been about the book trailer. I have been searching for what I want to use and developing the concept. I have found the pictures that I want to use and have a part of the concept developed. I am now trying out various software to assist me in putting the trailer together. I ran into a little bit … Read More

Being Compared to Judy Blume

I am drifting on a cloud. . . my work has been compared to Judy Blume. Now, that may not seem like a big thing to some, but I remember a time when Judy Blume was THE author for young adult books, when the concept of young adult was in its infancy. I have just received a review of my … Read More

Joining Facebook

I joined my first social networking site today – FaceBook. So far, I am finding it a little frustrating, because they categorize groups and finding friends in a different manner than I would and the search functionality to me is a little cumbersome. Other than that, we will see. My reason for joining was that Flamingnet.com, the young adult review … Read More

Coloring Page

I had a brainwave today and have been able to put it together and get it posted to the website already. As I was driving along on my way to the dentist, I realized that I had a black and white copy of the cover of Misfit McCabe which would make an excellent coloring page companion piece to the book. … Read More

Still the Petite One

All right, this post is going to expose my vanity. Elsa is now bigger than I am, so I am still the most petite pup in the house. You don’t know how much that makes me smile. I like being the littlest, especially since I am no longer the youngest. Elsa is longer than I am and also has longer … Read More

Developing a Book Trailer for Misfit McCabe

I have been doing my homework today and looking up book trailers on YouTube as I try to develop a book trailer for Misfit McCabe. A book trailer is a very good tool for marketing and in today’s publishing environment, pretty much a requirement. I haven’t started the process for obtaining all of the pictures that I want to use, … Read More
