This is Hattie, who I thought of when writing about Spike. Do you have a picture of a Jack Russell Terrier or a dog who might have travelled with Natalie through France and Spain? When I was choosing a dog I stopped many unsuspecting dog owners in the street and took photos of their dogs. I could have used anyone of them. If you have a small dog and a copy of my book, see if you can get a picture of your pet and the book, or your pet and your book and link it to the page.If you have a book staring a dog It would be fun to know about it.
It’s at times like these you realise that you are a better writer than photographer, but the dog and the book are there.
You can send a tweet to @brendahSedgwick with a photo. The pictures can be tranfered to my facebook and shared.
Spike the dog, is on the book cover, (see blog 1) She is really Hattie a girl, A remarkable animal who jumps around all over the place. There is great freedom for a dog like her at the farm where she lives. Hattie has a job to do, looking after Enzo, an old Weimaraner who is completely blind. Where Hattie goes, Enzo follows. As you can see, Hattie is very much alive. Not like poor Spike in the book. Every book needs an animal, at least mine do.
If you would like to create a discussion the place to do it is on the forum page on Amazon where the book is.
Can’t wait to finish the cover for my paperback book, but we are in Sri Lanka now and it has to wait. The photo I want is on the computer at home. I have put out an SOS to the gliding club for a good photo for the background but I haven’t heard back and, stubbornly, I like the one I’ve got on the e-book. Hope you like the picture and it helps to make the story come alive.
Hattie is leaving the book cover as the cover and the book is taken over by the professionals. I’m sorry to see her go and it has been a fun experience publishing my own ebook but it is time to hand it over and observe the professionals at work. My updated – recreated book will be available in April.
