Sit Stay Pray

Momma and I will be releasing my second book, Sit, Stay, Pray on October 1st!  Our manuscript (such a sexist word!) is almost finalized, our cover designed, our publicist ( in place, and we couldn’t be more excited about the new book!  Please stay tuned for details on our launch parties this October, November and December in Minnesota and in Florida next winter.  We also plan to do several pawtographing events, possibly partnering up with Chuck and Don’s Pet Food & Supplies store, and with the Animal Humane Society and Helping Paws MN (both of whom will benefit from book sales).  Woofda – we’re on this!

Sit, Stay, Pray Cover

Crystal Lake Book Club

On November 13, Momma and I will be hosting a bookclub meeting (wine party) at our house.  We are just hoping and praying that Sit Stay Pray is published in plenty of time so the girls can “bone” up on it!  Wouldn’t it just be the bite, Momma is thinking, if she had to pick another book for the meeting?

The Wilds BookClub Appearance

So fitting, isn’t it?  That I would be appearing for a book club called, “The Wilds?”  Remember, I do have a bit of wolfiness in me!  Momma’s good friend, Helen, has asked us to lead a bookclub discussion on Lina Unleashed and possibly Sit, Stay, Pray, depending on its release date at the The Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake, Minnesota on November 21.

Opportunities for YOU!

Please keep in mind that you, too, can book us for your bookclub.  Please contact me at or leave a comment on my blog, and we’ll set something up. Or, if the spirit moves, please let us know if you’d like to host or help host a book launch party!

Women’s Cultural Alliance Appearance

On Monday, March 9, 2020, Momma and I (well, maybe me, depending on the degree of dog discrimination at the venue), will be doing a presentation on my books for the Women’s Cultural Alliance of Southwest Florida.  Woofda!  More details to follow.

Lina Unleashed

And let’s not forget about my award-winning debut book, Lina Unleashed.  It continues to sell well, and humans are loving it!  I think it reminds them of their own foibles in dealing with the modern world.  Not that anyone has as many issues as Momma — she is in a class by herself.

Lina Unleashed is available at,, and from Momma and me (pawtographing and shipping included!).  It is also available at select book/gift stores including Barnes & Noble in Burnsville and Edina, MN, Tazzie Baby & Child in Victoria, MN, the Moose Hus Coffee House in Tioga, ND, Uno in Naples, FL, and Sunshine Booksellers and the Marco Island Historical Society in Marco Island, FL.

By the way – and this may be the most exciting news of the day – Lina Unleashed and all other Lina products will soon be available at my new store.  Keeping the name under wraps for now.  Stay tuned!
