Loving Emmi Book Tour and Giveaway


And the Dog-Ma saga continues...


In this highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Dog-Ma, The Zen of Slobber, Izzy, the feisty and ferocious terrier, has lost her eyesight. Following on the heels of this devastating loss, her arch-rival Morgan - a gentle giant of a Rottweiler - suddenly succumbs to cancer. Finding herself a lonely-only, it's not long before Izzy finds herself nose-to-nose with her humans' new pet project: a foster Rottie pup also named Morgan. Quickly renamed Emmi to avoid confusion (and the wrath of Izzy,) it was to be the beginning of a journey unlike any other.

Severely injured as a newborn, Emmi—affectionately known to her fast-growing online fan base as Baby Morgan the Broken Jaw Puppy—is hanging onto life by a thread. Living with a crushed jaw that has left her unable to open her mouth to eat or drink, the prognosis is grim. Baby Morgan is starving to death. Having rescued her from a horrific life, her parents spring into all-out desperation mode to find her the best lifesaving medical care. Despite the advice of veterinary professionals to euthanize, her parents are determined to save her at all costs. Taking to the Internet, they rally a huge online community of dog lovers who quickly become their second family. It does not take long for Emmi's sheer determination and ferocious will to live to take hold.

This is Emmi's miracle. A story of hope, inspiration and triumph in the face of adversity.

Dog-Ma: the Zen of Slobber (Dog-Ma Book 1)

Barbara's vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about. 

When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves. 

Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”

MY HONEST REVIEW OF Loving Emmi

This is a heartfelt true story of how Emmi, an injured Rottweiler pup, came into the author’s life, and the ups and downs that ensued. Reading the story of Emmi had me laughing and crying along with the author. She did a wonderful job of conveying Emmi’s personality, as well as her adopted sister Izzy.

The author and her husband have devoted everything to give Emmi more than just a quality of life. Their unconditional love truly has to be what kept Emmi going through all the trials she experienced. This was an amazing story about courage, strength, and most of all, uncompromising, unending, reciprocated love.

Simon Book Review


Simon

Simon
By Michael Mullen

A modern day Hamlet for YA readers.
His father is dead. His mother has remarried. His uncle is . . . his new stepfather? When the ghost of Simon Elsinore's father returns and claims he was murdered by his own brother, the nineteen-year-old film student must determine what is true and exact the revenge his father demands. 

...........................................................................
MY REVIEW OF Simon

After Richard, Simon’s dad, dies unexpectedly, his mother marries Richard’s brother Charles. Simon can’t accept his uncle becoming his stepfather, and refuses to go to the wedding. When Simon sees his dad’s ghost telling him that he was murdered, Simon decides to do whatever it takes, to get justice for his dad’s death.

Simon was an interesting character, but he was the only one with that status. I sympathized with his emotions in what was happening to him. I wasn’t a fan of the way the story was told. It was a little confusing with the back and forth of the storytelling, but I understood the objective. I would have preferred not to know the ending before being able to follow the plot. It kept me from fully connecting to the characters. I did like the drama of the news casting though, with all the backstabbing going on. I enjoyed that bit of humor added to the story.
