Dogman Blog May 2009

Greetings Dogman fans!

Summer is here and the folklore of Michigan’s Dogman is revving up! Be sure to check out our official website for Dogman news and information!

The month of May has been extremely busy as our summer tour kicks off for 2009. The Tulip Fest in Holland was a banner weekend, followed by stops in Mesick, Michigan State University, and Muskegon. We’ve had great weather so far and met a lot of great Dogman fans around the state!

The little blue tent is set for the season, and June and July are going to be very busy. We pick up again on June 6& 7 in Owosso, followed by weekends in Saginaw, Frankenmuth, Makcinaw City, Traverse City, Lake City, and Charlevoix.

Update on the new Dogman (part 3) novel:

The third book in the Dogman series, Nagual: Dawn of the Dogman, has moved from manuscript to editing. We have a tentative release date of July 4, 2009 if everything works out through our publishers and printers.

The Nagual are the evil, shape-shifting Skin-Walkers. In the first half of the new book, we learn of the origins of the Dogmen, magical beings that have overtaken the bodies of humans and changed them into horrible creatures. We also learn of a prehistoric North American civilization under siege by the Dogmen and their horrid sorcerer-chieftain.

The second half of the novel jumps forward to 1977 as the Dogman rampages through Grand Traverse and Benzie Counties. Can two young camp counselors stop both the supernatural Dogman and the rich tycoon who’s got his own plans to ransack the little communities of Lake Ann and Interlochen.

Interested in some snippets from the new novel? Check the link below and be sure to stop by often for more updates.
