ALOT OF FIRSTS
Welcome....this is my first time "blogging", first time becoming an author and first time sharing the news that an independent publisher has agreed to publish my children's book. I may start an actual blog in the near future, but for now I just wanted to tell my current followers that my long time dream is coming to fruition. The book is entitled, "I Miss My Best Friend" and its a children's book on pet loss. My goal is to help others ease the suffering of losing their best friend. I dedicate this book in memory of my best friend, Cassius "The Legend" Lagos. The most loyal, loving, strong and beautiful dog I've ever met. Until we meet again.
