I'm so excited to let you all know that my nine-year-old granddaughter has written her first book. She chose a few of her favourite dog breeds and wrote about each one, including her own family dog, and a few of friends. 

I'm not surprised that she put in the time to pull this 'Little Book of Dogs' together. This is a child who read all seven Harry Potter books by the end of Grade 2. Two months ago, she asked me if I would help her to publish her book. I decided the best route would be to self-publish it. She is donating a portion of the sale proceeds to a dog shelter in her hometown. 

I began the process of designing and editing her book, but ran into problems with the formatting part of it for uploading. My friend, fellow author, and my book cover designer, Patti Roberts of Paradox Book Cover Designs, donated a cover to the book. 

As I have begun working with my editor on rewrites for Book 1 of the Georgia Series, my time is becoming limited. Patti offered to format and upload Brae's book for me at a discounted price. She is a very creative designer and an awesome lady, who wishes to support a young, first-time author. She, also, wishes to support Brae because she's donating a portion of sales to the care of animals. I can't sing my praises of this woman enough.

I will let you all know when the book is live. Here is the book:

Meanwhile, if a nine-year-old can do it, keep on keeping the dream and keep on keeping on writing.
