I am not quite 'hip' with the selfie generation that seems enamored enough with themselves to FB, blog, tweet, twitter about their every move and now send out photos of themselves doing whatever -- in Jennifer Lawrence's case doing it nude. But I have added a selfie of me and Fang (or is it I and Fang in this selfie world?) because she is so cute. Those of you who are getting older (like me) usually don't want to see a photo of her/himself because of wrinkles and sagging skin, much less one of another old person, but here we are, Fang looking adorable and me looking grey:
The selfie fits right in to this post because it is about me -- and my latest book, Murphy Gold Rush Dog, which is finally in my hand. There is already a great review from Kirkus and since this is a post about selfish me, I get to brag that it was a good review with words like heart-wrenching and heart-warming and "An adventure-filled tale set within a fascinating period of history." However make note that I am not tweeting, twittering or Face Booking this information --it is exclusively for Equestrian Ink (and there will be no nude selfies either.)
What is also exclusive is a giveaway to anyone at EQ Ink who would like to review the book and post glowing comments on her/his own blog/FB page. You can even Tweet and Twitter about it. It's not a horse book, but horse and dog loving seem to go together. I would mail the book to you for FREE--note that FREE is in bold letters since that may be all you read as you skim this post.
If you are interested, email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send it even if you don't think you will write glowing comments and I will especially send it if you have kids who would enjoy reading and sharing it with others.
Enjoy the rest of the summer weather and let's toast to a glorious fall!
