Pet-Based Children’s Books I’m Going to Write Next

So, There’s a Pooker on My Pillow (Pooker Book Web Page) has been published.


That doesn’t mean I’m done, however. I promised on the last page of Pooker that I would write about all of our pets. So here are the working titles in the order I plan to write them:

  1. How I Got My Shadow- about our Schipperke dog, Shadow
  2. Sophia the Miracle Kitty- about our American Long-Haired calico cat, Sophia
  3. Charlie the Charmer- about our Siamese cat, Charlie
  4. Oliver All Over- about our daughter’s family’s Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix dog, Oliver
  5. You Can’t Ignore Nora- about our daughter’s family’s Miniature Siberian cat, Nora
  6. Amazing Gracie- about our rescued Eastern Cottontail bunny, Grace

Keep in mind that this could change, but that’s my thinking right now.

Bear in mind that each book will have a core theme, just like Pooker. I won’t reveal those just yet, however. I want you to come back & check out my progress, so I’ll add little tidbits of information as I go. I look forward to this journey!

I wrote another book too!

So about 12 years ago I self-published a book co-written with my brother Dan. It was based upon the social convention of automatically saying “fine” when someone asks, “how are you?”. My mother, my brother and I actually brainstormed “snappy answers to ‘how are you?'” and I compiled them, added clip-art to go along with most of them, and found a self-publishing web site, which I used to self-publish the book.

I’ve never really done any marketing for it so it’s only sold a few copies, mostly iBooks and mostly in Great Britain. My genealogy is mostly British as well, so I guess that should come as no surprise. I tend to have a dry, British-y sense of humor.

Anyway, the book is called 108 1/2 Snappy Answers to “How Are You?” or  109 1/2 Ways to Lose Friends. It is available for purchase here: Go Here & Buy My Book! Thanks!!

Here are a couple samples to whet your appetite:

Q: How are you?

A: Apathetic, but it doesn’t matter.

A: Double-parked in the red zone of life.

Yeah, they’re all pretty much like that. So if you have the inclination (first of all don’t fall down) check it out!
