I’m a romance author. A children’s author. I’m trying to build a name for myself, write like crazy, and build a list. Get an agent. Etc. So, what does a person do when a dog’s voice mutters in her head for days? Begging you to tell his story?
I said no. Absolutely not. I would not be distracted by my flirty muse, who is too social and interested in too many topics. My muse has ADD. I ignored the dog’s voice and concentrated on my new work in progress which actually has a home I can sell it to.
The dog’s voice got louder. He talked when I tried to go to sleep. During the intimate love scenes I tried to write. Finally, after a full week of torture, I surrendered.
I told him I’d write his story.
I sat down one morning, and emptied the words onto the paper. Took one full day. Exhausted, drained, and happier than I’ve been in a while, I realized a true hero was born in the shape of a shelter dog. But the question is…what the heck was I going to do with it?
I checked out some markets. Thought about offering it on my blog. But after a few people read it, I was inspired.
My hero needed more readers. He deserved to be heard, and to share his story. So, I decided to publish it on Kindle for .99. Half of all proceeds will be donated to my shelter, Pets Alive, where I received my own abused shelter dog, and watched him grow and strengthen into the loving, sweet animal he always was.
I’m asking you to spread the word. Take a moment to write a quick review on Amazon for me to help the exposure.

If you don’t have a Kindle, you can still download to your Ipad or your computer.
I’m back to writing my romances but this short story has strengthened me as a writer, and a human being.
Thanks, as always, for all of your support.
