Get a Gift and Help a Dog to His or Her Forever Home

Just a note from Abby Lab -

Mom just noticed that Amazon has her paperback copy of her second book  - Saving Grace - A Story of Adoption marked down to $1.56 from $13.56.   It might be to spur sales upon the announcement that her first book won Silver in the Reader's Favorite International Book Award, but for whatever reason it's a bargain and a quality printed book you would be proud to give someone.

If you want a thoughtful but cheap Christmas gift for friend or family, go check it out. She's  not sure how long the price will be that low.  Saving Grace was a #1 Amazon Best Seller and has had great critical reviews from the professional book reviewers. It's more than just about adoption, both two and four-legged,  it's a story of growing up in the 60's and coming of age in a time of great change in out country that many of you might relate to.

Like The Book of Barkley- ALL sales proceed go to animal rescue and adoption centers, this month -

as well as Search Dog Foundation where Mom matches will personally match sales to sponsor a search dog's training from rescue to rescuer.

    Crikey that's some drop... hope there are lots of takers.... I no longer purchase books if they are available electronically - and this was a good reminder to me that I have been meaning to get Barkley and Grace for my kindle app... the timing is perfect, 'cos I just rec'd my new little tablet (book size and much better for reading) so will get onto this pronto!!! YAM xx

    1. YAM- Aunty - that's great! Both books are only 99 cents on Amazon and they are available through Amazon UK and Amazon AU (just word search the title and or author and they come up).
