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?”
