I’m donating royalties from my new book, Floss the lost puppy, to two fabulous animal charities here in Romania.
Every book you buy will help save a dog (or a cat) that is homeless, sick or injured.
Romania Animal Rescue is an amazing group of vets at the Centre of Hope in Bucharest – see what they do every day to save dogs and cats.
Eli Pet Transport is a Romanian-British charity that rescues dogs from all over Romania, socialises them till they’re ready for a new home, then takes them to the UK to their new families.
All the people involved are stellar human beings who have devoted their lives, their homes, their careers to the welfare of cats and dogs.
If you love animals, buy a book, donate direct to their websites, spread the word about what they do, teach kids about the value of pets and how to care for them – help in any way you can…
PS: You can find out more about Floss on his website, and read reviews of the book here.
I’d love to see you! I’ll be on Booklet Fiction’s stand at Romexpo from midday on Friday 24th, and at lunchtime on Saturday, too. Come and say hello, and get your books signed.
A perfect Christmas story, set in the mountains near Brasov. A bilingual edition, so a great read for Romanian and English-speaking kids aged 7+.
Readers of all ages love the book – read some reviews!
A review just in from Julie Whyman in York (UK), who read the book Floss the lost puppy to a group of excitable 5-9 yr olds:
“What a wonderful, engaging romp through Transylvania, via England and Wales: it has made us all want to leave a windy and dismal Yorkshire to jump into waist-high snow in the enchanting environs of Hay. You have a brilliant knack of creating believable characters so deftly and sympathetically that you feel as if they could walk off the page and give you a sneaky hug. We all loved it and can’t wait for the sequel!”
Read the whole review, and all the others in so far, here.
