I haven’t said so lately, but thanks so much for reading Up on the Woof and sharing it with your friends and through social media. I try to keep the posts here relevant, and not bore readers by continually promoting my books. My titles appear to the right of the page like any other innocuous ad might appear on any given blog, and if you choose to look at them, great.
But today I am interrupting your regularly scheduled blog to tell you something about two of those books.
The first book is How to Change the World in 30 Seconds: a Web Warrior’s Guide to Animal Advocacy Online, the Award-Winning Finalist in the Animals/Pets category of The 2013 USA Best Book Awards, sponsored by USA Book News.
My publisher, Barking Planet Productions, is giving away 25 kindle copies for the holidays.
To register to win, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘enter 30’ in the subject line.
Winners will be notified on January 3, 2014 and will be gifted with a kindle copy through amazon. We will be gifting 25 copies.
The second book I want to tell you about is Finding Fido: Practical Steps for Finding Your Lost Pet. This book was the natural result of founding and maintaining the Facebook page Lost & Found Ohio Pets, which I told you about in the blog post “Finding Fido (and Fifi, and Fluffy, and…)”. Every pet owner should have a copy of this book on their shelf. It contains advice to prevent the loss of a pet, tips for what to do if you find a stray pet, and a step-by-step plan in case the unthinkable happens and you are missing a pet. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Finding Fido directly benefit the Beagle Freedom Project. The BFP is a service of Animal Rescue, Media & Education (ARME). Founded in 2004, ARME is a nonprofit advocacy group created to eliminate the suffering of all animals through rescue, public education and outreach. The purpose of BFP is to rescue beagles (and other dogs) that have been used for laboratory experiments. They are a wonderful group doing great work in advocacy and rescue. You can buy a copy of Finding Fido on amazon, but BFP actually makes more in royalties if you BUY IT HERE. Right now it’s only available in paperback, at the very reasonable price of $6.29, but it will soon be available for Kindle as well.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.
