“Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.”
Mark Twain

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
Josh Billings

“If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.”
Mark Twain

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”
Will Rogers

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
Milan Kundera

Christopher Farnsworth Dani --

Sorry, no plans for NC right now. I'm pretty much limited by time and budget considerations. However, if you know a bookstore willing to host, get them in touch with me, and we can try to plan something for the paperback release or the next installment in the series.

Thanks so much for the interest.
