This is my first book release in almost three years and I am very, very excited about it. I hope that you'll get a chance to check it out. You can read the entire first chapter here and see a video in which I talk about the book here. Also, and this is important: there are pugs in the video. They appear at minute 1:30. Love them!
So that's that, and the other thing I was thinking of (granted, I've been thinking of few other things other than A Pug's Tale) is something I'm calling The Titles That Got Away. Recently the lovely writer Sarah Pekkanen posted on Facebook asking for title thoughts for her newest book. My reply was that I was excellent at picking book titles, but they always get changed. To wit: "To All The Dogs I've Loved Before" became the book "Pug Hill." "Things To Do in the City with Your Dog" became "City Dog" and "Pug Heist" became "A Pug's Tale." Writers, I'd love to know about titles of yours that got away, and readers, I'd love to know what makes a title sing to you?
Thanks all, and happy reading,
