So you knew I was working on bringing Kitsune-Mochi to you, right? Did you know I’m also working on a non-fiction book?
My day job is in behavior, animal behavior specifically (though I’m also certified in TAGteach), and I’m working on a book in that field.
I’m focusing specifically on protocols to help over-emotional dogs, dogs who are too excited or fearful or otherwise wrapped about the axle to think clearly. Since this topic is forming at least two-thirds of my referrals, I must be doing something right, and I should probably share it.
Despite my extreme nerd tendencies, the book is not written in an academic style; rather it’s very much a follow-along guide, with a conversational tone, because I want it to be useful to anyone working with a professional or, in non-severe or non-dangerous cases, on their own.
So stay tuned, because you’ll hear more about this as we go. :) Or to really be on top of things, sign up for the mailing list — that’s where news, special pre-orders, and the like will be announced. (And that’s it — no sharing of info or frequent spam, I promise!)
It’s a considerable gear shift for me to switch back and forth from fiction to non-fiction. We’ll see how I can handle the two projects at once!
