Did I tell you my story continues? Well it does. On May 17th we went back to Hollis Publishing (Puritan Press) and we picked up 17 boxes of beautiful books. Okay, I'm prejudiced. Christyann was there to help us open our first box and we pulled my book out of that cozy brown cardboard box and all admired it. IT MADE ME SO VERY HAPPY.
Did I tell you how we found Puritan Press? Papa Sommese and Mama Chell were driving up Amherst Street as it comes toward Milford N.H. and we were at the red light before we turned to go home and Papa said, hey look, there is a publishing company (you can see the picture above). Maybe we can call them. So Mama got on the computer, and we who know Mama know how she loves computers (ha, ha) and found their number, called them, Kurt invited them down and before you know it, we not only have a publisher but a wonderful graphic designer who knew all of the "insight" to create a wonderful book.
We thought it was "the universe" helping us out.
Anyway, we are now excitedly waiting for the hard cover. Just recently the "folks" went back to Kurt and we put the final touches on the book jacket.
I AM SO PROUD. WELL, IF A DOG CAN BE PROUD. Can't wait. Dharma Hugs! Dharma Dharma
So today Mama Chell and Papa Sommese went to see the good folks at Hollis Publishing. Our friend Kurt and his trusty graphic designer Christyann have been sooooooooo
helpful in giving really good advice about how to get my book published. I am going to try to add some pictures for you to
SEE THEM IN ACTION.
It was very interesting. Great big machines putting my book out I think twelve pages at a time. You can see the picture below of the "proofs". The man who was the pressman took them through the whole process and it was so cool. Kurt and Christyann were there and they were all
because it is as much "THEIR BABY" as it is Mama and Papa's.
You can see me doing my little HAPPY HAPPY dance.
My groomer, Toni, at Happy Paws, said I was the most "tail wagging, licking dog" she has ever met.
Yea, I am a happy girl (thank you Earle Rich for my picture here).
