You can pre-order the ebook exclusively from your local Amazon website and it will be automatically available on your Kindle, unless you've changed the settings, on Friday 11 November, in plenty of time for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Wait! There's more. If you're a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read "It's A Stray Dog's Life 2" for FREE. Now that's a bargain if ever I've seen one.

There will also be a physical paperback version available. For technical reasons, it's not possible to pre-order "It's A Stray Dog's Life 2" in paperback form. Fear not, we care about or readers and go the extra mile to make sure you can have the paperback in plenty of time for the holidays. We'll be launching it in early November on Amazon to make sure it arrives with you on, or before, the 'official' publication day of 11 November. It will give you plenty of time to wrap your presents in advance.

The paperback will also be available from other outlets, both physical bookshops and online, in the USA and UK, but this can take a few weeks for details to appear and inventories to be filled. You should be able to order it using the title and ISBN from your chosen retailer, though, as soon as it is released on Amazon.

Here's an idea for you. Why not buy both books and join the world of the stray animals? The perfect present for the dog lovers in your family.

Some Wonderful News

We've had some wonderful news recently. "It's A Stray Dog's Life" is being used in a school in the USA to help children with their language and reading skills. As an author, it's the most incredible compliment that can ever be received. It's even better than a 5 star review, although we love them too!

On the topic of reviews, thank you so much to everyone who's been so kind about "It's A Stray Dog's Life".

Please, whenever you've enjoyed a book by any author, leave a review. It keeps the world turning and ensures the huge amount of talent out in the world keeps writing stories to entertain you.

Looking Forward

As you can imagine, the next month is a crazy busy and emotional time. Hopes and doubts share headspace in equal measure. It takes an astonishing amount of support from friends and family for an author to stay sane. That's assuming any of us were actually sane to begin with. The jury's still out on that conundrum.

Thoughts now turn to the future. We did not waste the global lockdown. A lot of writing was done, as sitting around doing nothing really wasn't something to be recommended. As such, there will be more books in 2023.

There will be a step away from the stray animals, as the grown-ups in the family will, finally, have a book for themselves. We'll give you more of an insight nearer publication day. It's already been written with proofreading, editing and cover design well underway. Fear not, though, the stray animals will also return with more adventures over the course of the year. Which new ones will you meet? That's currently a closely guarded secret!

Some Great News

There's further good news to share. Several of the stray dogs have been adopted and will soon be journeying to their new homes. They're currently going through all the medical checks and fulfilling the legal requirements before moving to their new 'forever' families. they'll be missed, but finding the strays a permanent home has to be our most important goal.

P.S. There is one more important thank you I must give. To Sunseeker, Aston Martin, Tag Heuer and Apple. Is that enough to get me a free Predator 60 EVO, a Vantage, an Aquaracer and a laptop? I can but live in eternal hope.
