I have some very exciting news I have been meaning to share for a few weeks now, but time seems to keep getting away from me. I am so very excited to announce the publication of my first book–Tabitha and Dundee: A Story of Friendship! It was over a year in the making before I decided to self publish last fall, and now here I am–a published author! It still seems so very surreal to me. Writing a book has been a life long dream, and I am so honored to have had a wonderful story to tell in my initial story. Tabitha and Dundee: A Story of Friendship tells the real life story of a formerly feral cat named Tabitha and her love for a dog named Dundee Boy. Dundee and Tabitha were great friends for several years until Dundee’s untimely and unexpected death back in 2010.
If you read this blog you clearly know just how important animals are to me, especially rescue animals. I thought Tabitha and Dundee’s story was a great way to combine my desire to write a book with my passion for sharing the stories of rescue animals. I remember the first time I heard of Tabitha’s strange and charming obsession with Dundee Boy, how touched I was to see that kind of affection in a feral cat towards a dog. It is just so sweet! I am not sure when I decided it would make a good children’s book; it is a great story of friendship, compassion and love, as well as a fantastic way to teach kids the importance of caring for animals in the community.
Now that the book is written, I find I have the daunting task of trying to find outlets for selling the book. I have a brain for stories and animals, not business. So this is an interesting and exciting new time in my life. I never thought I would be approaching retailers and rescue organizations pitching a book I wrote I would be honored if you would check out the book, you can find it on Amazon.com and at AuthorHouse.com and like my Facebook page. I hope this is just the first of many books about rescue animals.
