It’s All in the Details…

it's just a dog book amazon kindleA few weeks ago, I told you about my latest project — a funny, heartwarming, new dog novel called It’s Just A Dog (sorry, modesty will get you nowhere on Amazon) — which is on sale, by the way, in case you’re interested in helping out your seventeenth favorite movie poster blogger! ($2.99 Kindle, $9.99 paperback and on Amazon UK)

But what this book publishing process has taught me is that it’s all about the details. Crossing the t’s, dotting the i’s. All these details, details, details are driving me crazy! So in honor of that, I have decided to feature this classic 1970s movie poster, The Last Detail.

And Now For Something Completely Different…

it's just a dog book cover blurbsDear Gentle Reader,
Meansheets is excited to tell you about a brand-spanking new book that has absolutely nothing to do with vintage movie posters!

It’s Just A Dog is my new novel about a famous dog painter’s prized pooch who dies unexpectedly, and then later comes back from the dead as a talking ghost. It’s like the movie, Ghost — except if Patrick Swayze returned to haunt Demi Moore as a rude, wise-cracking Jack Russell terrier.

And what’s better — 50% of all sales during the book’s 3-month summer launch go to, a San Francisco senior dog rescue that believes every dog deserves a happy ending. You can read more about the book and download the first chapter for FREE at the official website,, which has a blog and the book trailer below.

Anyway, the reason I’m telling you all this is because I need your help. No, I don’t want your money — but I am requesting a bit of your time. You see, before the book goes live on Amazon in late May 2013, I’d like to get as many reviews as possible to increase exposure.

So, if you’re interested, please drop me a line at meansheets (a) before May 4 with the subject line “dog book” and tell me about yourself (include any Facebook/blog/website links, if you wish — or, better yet, if you already have an Amazon account) and I will then send you an advanced copy of the book in PDF (don’t worry, it’s short — under 200 pages).

Then right before the book goes live on Amazon in May 2013, I’ll send you an email reminder with the Amazon link to go submit a review for the book. You don’t have to write a long review — just a sentence or two to express your deepest, inner-most thoughts (e.g., “I can’t believe this book didn’t totally suck!” or “This dog book sucks, but I still love dogs anyway!”).

Thanks for your time. I look forward to hearing from you!
