Big News--It's a Book!

I have some exciting news to share with you. I got a book deal!! I recently signed the contract with the publisher for my first book, Dieting With My Dog! (working title). The book will be released this summer. Kelly and I are both super excited.

Here is the book description:

Dieting With My Dog shares the honest and heartfelt story of an overweight woman and her chubby spaniel struggling to get fit together. When a busy mom faces the empty nest, she turns to her rescue dog, Kelly—and food. But Kelly soon becomes the motivating factor to facing down the physical and emotional reasons for her overeating, and overfeeding her dog. Together they discover that everything’s easier with unconditional love. For anyone who has ever loved a pet--through thick and thin.

Here's your chance to ask me any questions about the book. I look forward to sharing with you our various steps along the way as our dog memoir goes to print!

  9. Thanks for the questions Frankie. My communication arrived by email. There were a lot of negotiations back and forth, and through an agent, regarding the contract. You are so right about the promotion. We're working on our video book trailer now.
