Dog Genius Reads Book.

Rowena has pointed out a hole in my marketing strategy for my new book, My Father and Other Liars: I haven’t tapped into the canine reading market.


Although all creatives know at a conscious level, that their creation takes on a life all of its own once it leaves home, little did Geoff Le Pard expect that his latest book: My Father & Other Liarswould find its way into the paws of Australian dog, who swears she’ s read it cover to cover.

“Trust me!” She says. “Would these gorgeous puppy dog eyes ever tell a lie?”

She also told me that she’s not the first dog to take up reading. Her friend Odie , much to Garfield’s surprise, has read Tolstoy’s epic: War & Peace.

However, as much as Geoff was hoping his book would be picked up, I don’t think this riff raff of canines was quite who he had in mind.

But just like you can’t pick your relatives, authors can’t pick their readers. Your readers pick you.

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published three books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars and Salisbury Square. In addition I published an anthology of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand this summer. A fourth book will be out soon. This started life as a novel in a week on this blog and will follow later this year. I blog about all sorts at and welcome all comments. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame.
