Goodreads is a place where authors can post their books and reads can comment on them. They have a monthly newsletter that highlights an author. Below is my entry.
Yalu and the Puppy Room is the first book in a series involving a Golden Retriever name Yalu. The Puppy Room is the place where dogs in her kennel go to meet people interest in adopting a dog. Most puppies leave with new parents, while others return to cages to one day try again. It’s the big interview for this for this little brown puppy dog looking for a forever home. In a kennel filled with cute and cuddly dogs, will Yalu learn to stand out from her peers? There’s only one way to find out, read Yalu and the Puppy Room.
Why is Yalu and the Puppy Room worthy of the Goodreads newsletter? First, it’s based on a true story about how I met my dog. She chose me and it’s nice to be chosen by a pet. Second, it teaches how to overcome rejection. Yalu was selected to go meet a family. They wanted a Golden Retriever and that was her. The mom loved her. The little boy loved her. The dad did not. Yalu learned to overcome her rejection and become a special dog. Third, I am a self published author with a good story and great illustrations that show that anyone with enough determination can overcome any obstacle place before them and publish.
