Finally it is done! After six years, five computers, four paws, three proofs, two edits and one determined Yorkie my new book: “Tails From Rainbow Bridge” is now available for purchase.
Here is the finished product.
Do you see the lovely art work done by Molly’s mom Pat Turner? That is a rare picture of me at Rainbow Bridge. We owe her a big thank you.
Do you see who wrote the book? That is right. It is written by Foley Monster. No humans involved. I talked with my parents and they agreed that I should get full credit, although I do thank them for their help.
Also I must thank Hobo and Wyllie Hudson’s mom and dad, Bruny and Walter, for performing the important job of editing, and Tommy Tunes and Freddy Girl’s dad Steve Kundzala who enhanced many of the photos in this book. Also a thanks to all the parents who gave me permission to use their photos. I have acknowledged them at the end of the book.
This book is for all the dogs I have written about, and have passed to the Bridge, from 2010 to 2015, as well as some very special humans, whose stories I have included.
The price of the book is $11.00. This is because of the size and the pictures. I am only making two cents for each book and I have to make $100.00 before the publishers will pay me so I don’t think I am making any money off the book but that is OK, as they say, I couldn’t take it with me. I did this so the parents who have lost their pups will have something to remember them by. Also it might help a friend who has recently lost a beloved dog. Hopefully it will be a thoughtful and caring Christmas Gift.
There is a great rule of thumb for authors: If you want to be successful don’t kill the dog. Unfortunately that happens in every one of my stories. But it isn’t a sad book, because every dog’s life goes on, as mine has, just in a place you mortals cannot access yet. While there are sad stories I hope you find it life affirming. It is stories of endless life and endless love.

I have started working on a book for the dogs who have passed to the Bridge this year. As long as my connection to the mortal Internet stays working I will be honoring dogs who come to the Bridge and their parents.
Because every dog and parent deserve to be recognized.
