Read Across America About Huskies, Epilepsy & Rescue With FiveSibesMom Books!


 Today is the National Education Association (NEA) Read Across America Day - also known as Dr. Seuss Day (as it's his birthday)! As a professional writer and author, naturally I L-O-V-E books! So, today, the FiveSibes and I are highlighting my canine books in print that are available through our website, ArcticHouse Publishing, and also available on Amazon.com. Please keep in mind, either way, I'm filling those orders personally, with some furry assistants, so you may find Husky fur in your packages! A portion of all of my books is donated to Siberian Husky rescues or a Canine Epilepsy non-profit organization!

Up first...

My latest book, EPIc Dog Tales: Heartfelt Stories About Amazing Dogs Living & Loving Life With  Canine Epilepsy. This book, as highlighted here with Gibson, the model cover dog, is a beautiful, 224-page coffee table style book filled with gorgeous color photos of Epi-dogs from across the world whose stories are told to me by their families who love them. I've also included an extensive resource library, facts, tips, experiences, information, and more for folks who now find themselves on the journey of Canine Epilepsy. You are not alone, and this book is a great place to start. I call it the Canine Epilepsy bible. A portion of proceeds from the book are donated to the Canine Epilepsy Resources Epil-K9 Foundation's "Emma's Seizure Fund" at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. NCSUCVM's Dr. Karen Munana has lent a quote to the book, and has since written an amazing review of the book (see below).



Next up...


We're still talking Canine Epilepsy with my cutely illustrated first canine book, the FiveSibes™ Tale What's Wrong With Gibson? Learning About K-9 Epilepsy, as showcased by Gib here in the photo, is written for children to help them understand what is happening and not be afraid if a dog (or a friend) is having a seizure, and even a few easy tips to help, just in case! A portion of proceeds from the book are donated to the Canine Epilepsy Resources Epil-K9 Foundation's "Emma's Seizure Fund" at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Next up...


My second FiveSibes™ Tale, Getting Healthy With Harley: Learning About Health & Fitness, as modeled by the star, Harley, is also written for children (but adults enjoy it, too!) to encourage them to eat healthier and exercise, just like the FiveSibes do! A portion of proceeds from the book is dogeared for Save Our Siberians Siberspace Rescue Fund.

And up next...


My Buddy, the Christmas Husky~A Holiday Miracle book, pictured here with Chloe, is a true story for all seasons, with a photo section of the real life abandoned-rescued-and forever loved Husky everyone loves, Buddy! A portion of this book is donated to "Buddy's Buddies," a fund Mama Shay has set up to go toward Buddy's ongoing health care through the University of Georgia's (UGA) College of Veterinary Medicine, and when Buddy doesn't have any medical bills, she uses it to help other dogs in need at UGA. You can check out Buddy's Facebook page to see all the newest "roos!"



So no matter what you love to read about, whether it is one of my books or another...gather up your furkids, human kids, family, and friends, and immerse yourself in a story between the pages of a book!

It has come to my attention that there are a few of my books now being resold online and on Amazon.com using my info and book covers...but at two to three times the price! Always check to be sure the book being sold is by our ArcticHouse Publishing to know you have the real deal - a brand spankin' new book by me, packaged by me, sold by me, and a portion donated by me!

 We're pretty wordy on this Wordless Wednesday!
