BOOK TOUR - Dog-Ma the Zen of Slobber by Barbara Boswell Brunner

dogma
For dog lovers everywhere.......Barbara's vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about. This book will inspire you with the couple's unstinting love, devotion, and respect for dogs as family members. You'll be glad to include it in your treasured collection of great dog books.

When Barbara meets her future husband, Ray, it is love-and dog-at first sight. Over the course of thirty-two years, seventeen relocations and nine dogs, their mutual love of dogs guides them on their unconventional path. The love that Barbara and Ray get in return is literally lifesaving, with one dog attacking a lethal intruder and another discovering Barbara’s cancer. Her own survival story underscores the story of how her dogs become survivors themselves. 


Each new dog adds its own dynamic to the family, sometimes upending it. From Turbo (whose Spock-like ears may have provided super powers), Barbara learns about the will to live; Lexington demonstrates incredible patience and an inexplicable love of golf; Madison teaches that laughter is truly the best medicine and that the whole “nine lives thing” is not reserved just for cats; Morgan should be sainted for tolerating Izzy, who is as cute as she is bad. Barbara is certain that somewhere in doggie heaven there is a poster that says “If you are sick, injured or in need of really expensive medical care, FIND THESE HUMANS!”

"If you are a dog lovers, as we are, Barbara Boswell Brunner and her husband Ray are people you will be delighted to meet. Barbara's vivid and dramatic stories, told with a wicked sense of humor, will make you laugh out loud. She definitely gets what living with rescued dogs (nine of them!) is all about. This book will inspire you with the couple's unstinting love, devotion, and respect for dogs as family members. You'll be glad to include it in your treasured collection of great dog books."  
–Allen and Linda Anderson 07.2012,  Authors of Dogs and the Women Who Love Them, 
named in O Magazine as one of 2010's top books

"Barbara Brunner's recounting of the comings and goings of a maddening modern life finds calm  and grounding thru the love of her dogs. Laugh out loud when big slobbering kisses offer 
solace while coping with a world somewhat insane."  
–Lou Sager 07.2012 Film Producer, Author and Founder of Zona Home

  1. I stumbled upon Sharon Martin of Beck Valley Books when I was seeking book reviews for my newly published book. She mentioned that she belonged to a group who did Book Tours and asked if I would be interested. Having already signed up for two other book tours, I was not sure, but thought I would give it a try.

    Sharon's Tour turned out to be one of the best things I have done to promote my book! Her reviewers posted as scheduled - we lost one due to the power failures caused by Hurricane Sandy but Sharon immediately had another blogger step in to cover it. Her bloggers wrote intelligent reviews making me believe they actually read the book and posted them all around the web on Amazon, Goodreads and Nook as promised. They were not all five star reviews, and I appreciated that. The reviews were honest. This may not seem heroic or remarkable to anyone other than someone who has had a less than professional book tour. I have had both good and bad tours and Sharon stands head and shoulders above any of them. Sharon's Book Tour for DOG-MA, THE ZEN OF SLOBBER was stellar!

    Sharon is also a wonderful tour manager sending links to me everyday for the current day's tour and posting to Twitter, Facebook and other places in cyberspace. I do not know why, but Sharon's tweets get retweeted at a much higher rate than other blog tour hosts I have used. She stays on top of the job, keeping it fresh. I gained many new Twitter followers, developed new author relationships I would not have otherwise found, sold plenty of books but mostly I found a new dependable colleague. We already have another tour planned.
