IN LIKE A LION is .99 cents this week and I have been lucky enough to have my fabulous Publisher ( submit it for a bookbub promotion and have it accepted!

It’s been a wonderful experience!

I hope if you buy ILAL (or one of my other books) in the next few days (or if you already have) you’ll drop me a line to tell me what you think or post a review and let me know (check out my reviewer incentives on my amazon author page). The incentives are dependent on reviewing, not any number star review. Honest reviews are worth their weight in gold, good or bad!

I’m elated and grateful that ILAL was accepted for a bookbub promotion! It’s fun to see things like this screen shot from amazon.

I’m also excited about the beginning of the RWA National Conference this Wednesday, 7/22. The “Readers for Life” Literacy autographing (proceeds go to promoting Literacy) is Wednesday afternoon-evening. Hundreds of Romance authors will be signing at the New York Marriott Marquis Times Square, including me!

Stop by while you’re at the signing and let me bend your ear with the traveling mishaps of a ditzy author. (Hint: I’m the ditzy author)

For full deets on the Literacy autographing:

I’m also going to try and visit Kyle’s building while I’m in NYC. I took the inspiration picture from the web, so cross your fingers that I can find it!

Hope to see you in NYC!

It’s a B-what now?

Thalia’s familiar spirit is a basenji. Basenjis are about the size of a fox terrier. The standard male weighs 24 pounds and is approximately 17 inches at the shoulder.
Basenjis are members of the hound group and use both their eyes and noses to hunt. Originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo, they were used to flush game into nets.

Basenji-like dogs can be found all over the world, but the basenji is distinct from these village dogs, because it doesn’t bark. They may bark a few times as puppies, but almost never as adults. For the most part, basenjis are silent, but they’re not mute and make many other sounds. Their growl sounds a bit like a rabid duck. They make a noise basenji owners call a yawn meow. They can howl and they make a charming sound called a yodel when they are happy to see you.:-)

Here is video of a red and white basenji puppy yodeling:

Basenjis come in five colors, Red and White, Black Tan and white (Tricolor, think Bernese mountain dog colors) Black and white, Brindle and white, and Black Brindle and White (we call it trindle)

So why a basenji? The simplest answer is because I love basenjis. All the things I love about them make them great familiars. Small enough to pick up, quiet, they clean themselves like cats, they have no doggy odor, they shed some in the summer and the fall and the rest of the time very, very little. They are charming little clowns.

Check out this video: (give it a second to load)

And this one:

They are not for people with very small children. If you hurt them, they will nip!
But for respectful older children and adults they are fantastic companions.
