Hi all! This week’s blog article is all about a fabulous event I’m doing at the end of this month with a group of four other authors called the Dog Squad! Grab your best furry friend and hustle on down to Phinney Books for an afternoon of fun! Support your local book store, chat with several local authors, and show off your best canine buddy at the same time! (Humans without canine buddies welcome too!) 😉
Join Dog Squad authors Laura T. Coffey, Waverly Curtis, David R. Gross, and Tracy Weber for an afternoon of Fido fun! All four authors will read from their books, answer questions, and accept dog kisses. Come prepared to share your dog’s special talents. Who knows? Maybe your pup will be featured in one of our future books.
Readings, signings, prizes, and dog treats! What more could you ask for?
Well-behaved dogs welcome.
