Dogman Update 11/29/09

Dogman Blog
November 2009

Autumn greetings to all of our Dogman fans! Thanksgiving has been a wonderfully busy time with both family and fans. Now we head into December ready for the holiday season!

This past ten days were just insane! Shows in Traverse City, Indian River, and Grayling culminated in rocking the St.Nick's Warehouse in Sterling Heights. A thanks to all the fans who showed up and helped us to sell 101 books this weekend! We set new November sales records and shared the legend of the Dogman with fans all over the metro Detroit area.

We have two book signings left this year. This upcoming Saturday we're at Boyne City high school, and the following Saturday we're in Saginaw at the Horizons Event Center. These last two events will be the last chance for fans to get autographed and personalized books in time for Christmas.

See our website for the full fall book signing tour schedule:

We're beginning to set our 2010 schedule. Hopefully we'll be haunting a town near you! Be sure to watch our calendar for updates.

News from Dogman Country:

Many of you've heard about the upcoming History Channel Monster Quest special, focusing on the Michigan Dogman. The film crew was here at the end of last month tramping around the swamps and forests outside Cadillac. They also extensively interviewed the folks at WTCM, including my good friend Steve Cook. Prominently featured, I've heard, will be a re-creation of the infamous 1987 Luthor cabin break-in. Also, I've heard the Gable Film will be examined in great detail. As I get more information, I'll be sure to update you all.

Book updates:

We're going to set up a special website with special holiday prices on books and t-shirts. This site will be available beginning December 5, so be sure to check out our Dogman page for updates. But don't wait for the last minute - I can only ship them out so fast, you know! Of course, you can order your copies of all my books at our website link below:

Dogman on Facebook:

For our many fans who are on Facebook, be sure to check out our fan page where I keep the constant daily stream of news and information. Search for Dogman, we are the page with the plethora of fans - 639 and still counting! And share us with your friends - we're trying to get to 1000 by the end of January! You can use this link too:

Updates on the new book:

I've updated the Longquist webpage with some snippets of the new book, Viking Treasure. This new book is coming along slowly, but the storyline is very good, and it will be an excellent sequel to the first Longquist Adventure novel. See the link below for the snippets:

New merchandise:

We now have Dogman pencils and pens! They are really cool and make great stocking stuffers. We are also expecting to have a few of the new 2010 hats available before Christmas. The new design is very cool and we'll get them in our online store as soon as they are available from our manufacturer. They are black with red accents, and feature a Dogman head graphic on the front.

Well, that's about all for this month. Watch your emails for more updates and of course the holiday book & t-shirt specials.
