Happy Tails Books Newsletter | Almost August 2009
In This Issue
Welcome to the "Almost August" edition of the Happy Tails Books Newsletter, a monthly publication to help keep you up to date on news about adopted dogs and dog rescue books.
Be in "The Know," and Receive Special Coupons by Following Our Tweets!
I never thought I would be saying this, but Twitter actually IS useful! Want to know which book is coming out next, or which states are moving and shaking with puppy mill legislation? You'll be the first to hear when we post a new sneak preview of our books online, AND you'll receive special coupons! FOLLOW US ON TWITTER!
Boston Terrier Book Update:
“Lost Souls: FOUND! Inspirational Stories of Adopted Boston Terriers” has arrived! If you already placed an order, it shipped on July 23rd. There is only one week left for you to get a great pre-sale deal, so if you haven’t picked one up yet, now's a great time! You'll receive either $2.00 off per book, or we will donate DOUBLE to rescue! Books can be purchased at the Happy Tails Books website.
Golden Retriever Book Pre-Sale (One Week Early!)
We received SO MANY wonderful stories for our upcoming book “Lost Souls: FOUND! Inspiring Stories About Golden Retrievers,” that we have already begun editing. In fact, we're almost finished! We'll post author announcements in a week or two online, so be sure to check in if you submitted a story. Please continue to submit your stories, if you haven't already, as we already have Vol. 2 planned!
Until September 15th, you can receive either $2.00 off per book, or we will donate DOUBLE to rescue, just like we did for the Boston Terrier book. Make the most of your purchase by picking up a book today!
Lab - Chihuahua - Dachshund RACE!
Which book will we publish next? Our publishing schedule depends on the enthusiasm of rescue groups and forever families to help us collect stories. We've put the word out to Dachshund, Labrador and Chihuahua rescue groups and have received a great response from all. Doxies are in the lead right now (can you believe it, with those short little legs?), but the race for the next book published is still up in the air! Please submit stories about Labs, Doxies and Chis as soon as you can so we can get rolling - wouldn't it be great to have them out before X-mas? The tentative deadline for these breeds is Sept. 15th, but by default, if we receive many great stories early on, later stories tend to get saved for a second edition.
Pet Postcard Project
This has nothing to do with Happy Tails Books, but as dog lovers we thought you might be interested. According to their website, you can make a postcard of your pet and mail it in to them. For each postcard you send, 1 pound of food will be donated to a shelter. Pretty cool, huh?Check out their website for more information.
Children's Book: "I Like Dogs"
Again, nothing to do with us, but we like to support others who share the same mission. The ladies behind "I Like Dogs," a book for children that celebrates dog adoption, are certainly kindred spirits. The illustrations are whimsical, the message is clear, and they also donate a portion of proceeds back to rescue. If you've got kids, you should check out this great book!
Please Let Your Dog-Loving Friends Know About Happy Tails Books!
Do you belong to any dog loving organizations? Do you have a blog or Facebook page? Please post about the Happy Tails Books project! Our goals are to:
· Entertain people with great stories about adopted dogs.
· Raise awareness of, and funding for, dog rescue groups.
· Aid in the fight against animal cruelty.
We're collecting stories on all breeds (and mixed breeds), and of course we love it when people buy books! If you need an article or interview, please just email us. You are the key to this project’s success!
