Yoga is truly for everyone, but especially for readers, who tend to sit in slouched, hunched positions for hours at a time. I teach this class at library events and book signings, buteven those of you too far away to attend my in-person events can benefit from the practice.

“Don’t get me wrong. I like dogs. I love them, in fact. It’s their human counterparts I could sometimes do without.”
Tracy Weber, Murder Strikes a Pose
tags: dogs

“Michael spoke slowly and sternly, as if scolding an obstinate child. “Kate, let me be very clear about this. You will not continue this murder investigation, under any circumstances. I forbid it.” Michael’s words were unequivocal, not to be challenged. He was man. He was in charge. He expected no argument.

He was an idiot.”
Tracy Weber, Murder Strikes a Pose

“We’re trained, in our culture, to take care of ourselves first. Even flight attendants tell you to put on your own oxygen mask before helping those around you. But they never tell you what happens afterwards. How do you live with yourself if you survive and the person next to you doesn’t?”
Tracy Weber, Murder Strikes a Pose

“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.”
James Herriot, All Creatures Great and Small

“Universal dilemma of the real dog person: You leave the dog home, you worry what will happen to him when you’re out. You take the dog with you, you worry that something will happen to him when he’s alone in the car….The solution, of course, is to keep the dog at your side twenty-four hours a day, every day, but then you worry that your constant presence is making the dog neurotically dependent, and besides, you can’t go anyplace that doesn’t allow dogs, so you can’t go to work or get your hair cut or go to the dentist. And then, of course, you feel guilty because, after all, doesn’t your wonderful dog deserve a better owner than this poverty-stricken, shaggy-headed slob with decayed teeth? Meanwhile, the dog doesn’t worry about anything. Why should he? That’s what he has you for, and for obvious reasons, he trusts you completely.”
Susan Conant, Black Ribbon

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth's beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
Bessie Anderson Stanley, More Heart Throbs Volume Two in Prose and Verse Dear to the American People And by them contributed as a Supplement to the original $10,000 Prize Book HEART THROBS

“If we have souls, they're made of the love we share. Undimmed by time, unbound by death.”
Jack Harper

Tracy Weber I'm forming a street team to help promote my Downward Dog Mystery series. I'm hoping people will tell readers about the book on social media, write honest (even if critical!) reviews, and in general help spread the word. Members will get gifts, including t-shirts, bookmarks, maybe coffee mugs, and will be entered to win advanced copies of each book a few months before release date. If you're interested in participating, please either comment on this thread or e-mail me at

Thank you!
