Sit Stay Pray

Our new book, Sit Stay Pray, was released on October 1, and Momma and I are working hard to get the word out and make it easy for you to put your paws, er . . . hands on it. It is currently available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Itasca Books and Target.  If you can’t wait to get it in the mail, you may purchase Sit Stay Pray or Lina Unleashed at Barnes and Noble Galleria in Edina, or simply contact Momma and me, and we’ll get you a pawdographed copy ASAP!

Barnes & Noble Launch Paw-rty was Huge Success!

On Saturday, November 9, Momma and I celebrated the launch of Sit Stay Pray at Barnes and Noble in Edina.  It was a smashing success with over fifty guests and customers!  We are currently in talks for a signing at another store and will keep you posted on details.

Sunshine Booksellers Appearance In The Works!

Momma and I are excited to announce that we will be doing a pawdographing and reading of SSP (Momma promises to bone up on her presentation skills) at Sunshine Booksellers South on Marco Island this season.  Joan, the manager, said she would be happy to have us again, and that we will do it sometime in early 2020!  Woofda!

Women’s Cultural Alliance Appearance Set for March 2020!

Also, 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.  More details to follow.

Bookclubs!

Momma and I have recently been on the bookclub circuit.  On November 13, we hosted the Crystal Lake Bookclub at our house, and had a great discussion.  Our friend, Dana, said she read SSP on a recent flight, and was laughing out loud on the airplane.  This was music to Momma’s and my ears.

Then, on November 21, we traveled to Prior Lake and led the Wilds Bookclub in a discussion of Sit Stay Pray.  The reaction was even more enthusiastic from that group.  Several women said they loved the book and that it was laugh-out-loud funny.  I want to give a big woof out to Momma’s friend, Helen, for inviting us and to Sue for hosting.  Sure was a “Wild” group!  Here’s a photo.

Finally, Momma has high hopes about hosting a bookclub at our place in Florida early in 2020.  There is actually a newly formed bookclub in our building, and Momma  (strongly) suggested Sit Stay Pray as one of the books for this season.  Fingers and paws crossed!  They won’t know what they’re missing if they pass us up!

Also, in May 2020, we will be doing a bookclub for Momma’s friend, Sandy, in Eden Prairie, MN.  Momma used to belong to that club until she realized she was supposed to cook a full-blown dinner for the members when it was her turn to host.   Since that was not in her wheelhouse, she quietly slunk away.  This will be fun, though, cuz those women appreciate a good book (did I just woof that?)!

Opportunities for YOU!

Please keep in mind that you, too, can book us for your bookclub.  Please contact me at Lina@linasdogblog.com or Momma at robink822@gmail.com or leave a comment on my blog, and we’ll set something up.  Momma says we will even travel to places such as Palm Desert or Maui or St. Thomas if need be.

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 Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, ItascaBooks.com and from Momma and me (pawdographing 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.
