My Boston is the Cover Model for My New Book!

When my e-book story, "I Heart Boston Terriers" comes out next month from Amber Allure, I will be especially excited because the cover model is none other than my own Boston Terrier, Lily. The photo at the bottom of the cover was taken in a sleepy moment on our bed by my partner, Bruce Moynagh.

I think it's adorable.

And here's what the book is about:

Love at first sight can work for dogs as well as humans.

When Aaron finds Mavis, an emaciated and timid Boston terrier, at a pet adoption fair, his heart goes out to her—irrevocably.

When Christian, who is manning the adoption fair for the Humane Society that fateful autumn Saturday, finds Aaron, his heart goes out to him—irrevocably.

“I Heart Boston Terriers” is all about embracing love, whether it’s for someone who walks on four legs, or someone who walks on two. The Boston terrier Mavis’ journey back to wholeness and finding her forever home runs parallel to the story of two men discovering one another at just that perfect moment—a moment that defies logic, propriety, and common sense.

But then when do the dictates of love follow a rational course?

Come along for a journey about a man and his dog and see how that journey teaches him the truth about love and making a caring connection that just might last a lifetime.
I hope you'll come along for the ride when the book debuts in January as apart of the "Heavy Petting" series.

  1. What a wonderful cover, Rick! Lily is very photogenic. This sounds like a great story, Rick. Since my own Marley is a rescue, I can't help but melt over this premise.

  2. Fantastic, Rick! Can't wait to read it. I think Lily IS adorable. Can't wait to see what Trace does for my cover in this Amber Pax. Happy New Year to you, Bruce and of course, Lily :)

  3. Rick,
    Yes, I'm a sucker for animals, especially dogs. Great cover & your dog is so cute. Happy New Year to you & yours. I'm looking forward to reading this latest book of yours.


  4. How adorable! she's precious Rick! I'm sure the story will be as wonderful as the cover!

  5. Great cover, Rick, and the book sounds equally fine! I have a Boston Terrier, too. Another rescue. Like Mavis, he was emaciated and timid when we adopted him. Now he's plump and boisterous (also madly in love with our other male dog, both of whom prefer each other to our female dog... but that's another story). :-)

  6. Your Boston story, Mimi, sounds like a good one for Amber Allure.

  7. that cover is adorable, Rick. The book sounds pretty good, too.

  8. Fabulous cover, and I'm looking forward to the book!
