HAPPY GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Above: A 'congratulatory' bouquet from one of my supporters.
...thank you Weinerlein family!!!
A happy 'hello' to all my fur-buddies around the world.
Whew! Things are abuzz here...my head is in a tail-spin...I'm a little unsteady with all that's happening surrounding the launch of my precious book
If you would like to visit my publisher's website, and specifically the page where you can purchase MAXDOG, please click
Boy, I am amazed at the incredible support I am getting from around the country.
Thank you friends for your emails! Thank you for your purchases! Thank you for your encouragement!
I am so blessed by you all.
500 copies were printed and published on Thursday last week.
About 250 of those copies are GONE!!!
...to various sources:
Some have been sold/distributed to some of my loyal readers and supporters (A BIG thank you!), some have gone to my publicist and 100 copies have gone to the distributor for the various orders received from bookstores around the country. I'm spending most of my day answering emails and queries, and trying not to drop any catches. It's fun, but it's tough :)
Please forgive me, during this hectic time, for not visiting many blogs. I am sure that you will understand - my special blogging buddies - ?
The official launch of MAXDOG is on Tuesday next week.
If you are in Johannesburg on that evening...
YOU ARE INVITED!!!
Please come and join us in celebrating this milestone! I know its going to be a fabulous evening: Snacks, wine, MAXDOG books and the opportunity to get some 'insider' information about this very personal story. I would love to see you all there and will be honoured by your attendance.
So, will you be there?
It's going to be a book launch with a bit of a 'difference':
We have a special announcement....we have a...
'guest of honour' ....
Yes, Rudi is the celebrity for the evening. He is a 7 year old Golden Retriever, with a genetic link to MAXDOG (Rudi is Max's nephew), and has been an active therapy dog for a number of years. He is highly affable and has been part of the 'Paws for People' (East Rand Unit) for a number of years. (It goes without say that 'Rudi' is a fully trained therapy dog) He is accustomed to small spaces and crowds of people and is a delightful , interactive animal with a beautiful temperament. Rudi will be adding the 'special touch' to the evening. This sweet golden retriever has done a lot of work at a special needs school called "Little Eden" on the East Rand. He is also a show dog and is the grandfather of my current Golden Retriever, Toby.
I will be honoured to have RUDI as my special canine guest of honour. So...come and meet him!
