A friend of mine has written a book called "Duffy Barkley is not a Dog". She has a blog about the book that can be found at http://duffybarkley.blogspot.com/ . Check it out! I just started reading it, but at one point found myself forgetting I was reading I was so into the story. That's usually a pretty good sign that the book is going to be good.
Dixie self-published the book and is using a lot of the money she makes to buy more books to donate. She is a crafter of words, not paper, but we should all support each other, right?:-) Have a great weekend.
