I know, it’s been a long time since I’ve been here, but I’ve been busy trying to drum up interest in Getting Naked For Money: An Accidental Travel Writer Reveals All.

What does that have to do with a dog blog, you might ask?

Quite a bit, as it happens.

For one thing, as I explain here, the book itself is kind of a prequel to Am I Boring My Dog. 

For another, many people who were regular readers of this blog were inspired to support the memoir on Kickstarter and/or to buy it afterwards. Not a single one asked for her money back.

Most important, however, is that I am planning a book tour and bringing along the official spokesdog, Madeleine, who appeared in my Kickstarter promo video. It’s shameless, I know, taking along a cute dog to promote a book. But with a title like Getting Naked for Money, shameless is my middle name.

Also, I’m not taking her along only to promote my book. I’m taking her along because I adore her and — vixenish behavior notwithstanding — really enjoy having her with me. She likes to travel and she loves meeting new people because they have a tendency to give her treats.
