Lucy got a new ride! I know, she looks skeptical here. But she's doing great with her stroller, and now she can travel around the neighborhood in style.

(I got tired of carrying my stubborn dachshund around the block.) 

Lucy is living her best life!

I hope all of you and your canine companions are doing well and enjoying the sights and sounds of your own neighborhoods.

Lots of love,

MUST LOVE PETS Facebook Party on June 16!

One of my favorite authors, Theresa Weir, is part of a cute boxed set called MUST LOVE PETS. It's a collection of animal-themed romance stories, and GIRL WITH THE CAT TATTOO (which I adored!) is in the collection.

There is a Facebook release day party, on Monday June 16, and LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE has been invited to participate. Yippppeeeeeee!

A party! Fabulous! I'll just be napping while you all chat about dogs and stuff!

Please stop by the Facebook page for a LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE give-away: a print copy of the book, plus an adorable plush weenie dog toy and some extra goodies! I'll be on the Facebook page from 1:30-2 pm.

Hope to see you there!

Book Fair!

I have an announcement! I will be attending a huge book fair this weekend. However, a word of's actually not a children's fiction book fair. It's a romance novel book fair.

My alter ego is a romance author!

I will have copies of LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE with me, in addition to Licking Lucy Lip Balm, bookmarks and cards.

I would love to see some of you there. Just don't be surprised if you see some...*ahem*....grown-up books in the room. If you catch my drift!

I will be signing at the Burlington Marriott on Saturday April 27, from 3:30-5:30. For those of you who also enjoy romantic fiction, there will be tons of amazing romance authors as well. Including NYT bestselling authors Julia Quinn, Hannah Howell, Loretta Chase, Marie Force and many more.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I spend a lot of time on social media sites...Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, blogs, etc. There are days that I just want to curl up in the fetal position because of the plethora of negative, depressing stories and links.

So, I decided to combat the negativity with a new Twitter account. @PerkyHappyStuff!!!!!!!

I will only post positive, happy news items. Cute puppy pics. Fun Youtube videos. And uplifting stories.

Please follow me on Twitter if you have an account and share your good news!


Happy Spring!

Hello April!

Thank goodness March is behind us. Winter has been rough this year in New England. I am soooooo ready for Spring!

My husband loves to fish, and he's gearing up for fishing season by working on his fly collection. I love all the different colors and textures of the threads. My favorite is the sparkly silver one--I call it the "disco" thread, although I'm not sure fly-fishermen would appreciate that term.

My way to celebrate Spring? Daffodils! I have planted hundreds of different varieties of daffs in my garden, and I can't wait for all of them to bloom.

I'm super happy to announce that LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE got another great review at The Very Hungry Bookworm. Not only did Becca love the book ("What a great lesson for kids!"), she is also offering a give-away. Please stop by to enter the give-away, which includes a paperback book, Licking Lucy lip balm, bookmarks and cards. Thanks Becca!

Hope all of you have a wonderful spring!

1. Lucy got a bath this weekend. Natty, my 10 year old daughter, LOVES to give Lucy a bath. I'm not sure Lucy enjoys it all that much, but she is very nice and fluffy right now.

2. LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE got a super nice shout-out by bestselling author Eloisa James on her Facebook page. Eloisa also has a doxie--an adorable rescue dachshund named Lucy! She said LTWW is "a great book for any short people in your life who love wiener dogs"....YAY!

3. The paperback version of our book is ON SALE for only $7.65 at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Happy Week from Nina and Lucy!
