Dayton, Ohio – Super charged evening at Books and Co. in Dayton. Full house, have sold more than $500 worth of notecards. Izzy was a bit sore but returning to his old self and the evening was warm and the questions were sharp and strong and clarifying. I am often asked if I will write about dogs grieving for other dogs and people. No, not for me or my grieving book. It's about people.
There is enormous interest in the grieving book and that will be a fun tour, I suspect. I was also asked if I would write a book about all of the dogs in America needing rescue. No, I said, I think not. Great interest in Rose and the novel, and the reader reviews on Amazon and elsewhere – increasingly important in publishing, I believe – have been wonderful. Tomorrow morning, we get up early and head for Cinncinnati. Interviews all day and the an appearance at Joseph Beth Booksellers for a reading and signing and talk. Then Wednesday to Versailles Kentucky for a 2 p.m. talk at the Woodford Library, and at 7 p.m., Joseph Beth in Lexington. Thursday to the Bainbridge Library – 7 p.m. – for talk and signing. Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
I can see that people want to meet Maria and Izzy of course. Izzy looks tired to me and I am taking it easy with him. He slept a lot during the talk. That could just be me ): I love to meet some of the people – Barbara Mann was one – who have been sending me lovely e-mails for years. Great to put a face on them.
