Permit me a wee brag....

I just got back from NYC. I wrote a dog book that just won the 2003 Dog Writers Of America Maxwell Award for "best book under 100 pages."

The awards banquet was held at the Southgate hotel, directly across from Madison Square Gardens, so there were show dogs & dog people everywhere, it was a real honor to meet them.
Unfortunately this writing business pays squat, so I couldn't stay longer & go to the show....!

Thank you!!
I'm really pretty honored. I need to get off my butt & get some more writing out there.
Here's the book from my publishers website; though it's being sold all over the place & even in some other countries too:

I can't believe that one of my best friends is an award winning author!

If you autograph my copy of your book, I will let you take Cooper home. Deal?

Sandi I'll be by shortly to steal my dog back from you & of course we'll autograph your book. Cooper's autographed quite a few, I put paint on his paw pad & press his foot down.

Thanks all!
It's been doing fairly well...I did an interview with The Bark magazine a few months ago, Dog Fancy reviewed it (they weren't impressed but who cares what they think, it's publicity) and I'll be on the Steve Dale pet radio show soon.
First book I've ever written - and the second thing anyone has every actually paid me for - so I'm pretty happy!
Plus I have a fabulous editor/publisher. I've got to know Charlene personally (Dogwise) and she & her family are wonderful people & worked hard to help me.

Congratulations Carina!!

That is a great accomplishment. You deserve a 'great big' pat on the back and an added 'thumbs up'.
