Dogman Update 11/14/2010

Hello there fans!

I'm very excited to share some great news with you this evening. We're just coming off a stellar weekend in Cadillac where we absolutely SMASHED our previous sales records. 121 books, including 56 copies of our new book, Tales From Dogman Country, made their way into fans hands over the past two days.

The new book, fourth in the series, is a collection of short stories from all over Michigan and from across many decades. Its weekend debut also smashed the previous records for book releases (Nagual in 2009, Sigman in 2008).

We also had a great two weeks with our online pre-release sales, and I shipped out a ton of packages over the past few days.

Interested in joining the excitement? You can order your very own copy of Tales From Dogman Country on Amazon, or get an autographed copy from my website: now has a special page set up for Tales From Dogman Country, and the online bookstore giant is ready to take orders.


We're heading into our winter schedule, and we have book signing stops at the following:

Sat, Nov 20: Canton HS (Canton, MI)
Wed, Nov 24: Alcona MS (Lincoln, MI)
Fri, Nov 26: Inland Lakes Schools (Indian River, MI)
Sat-Sun, Nov 27-28: Ford II HS (Sterling Heights, MI)
Sat, Dec 4: The Bookstore, Manistee MI (sleighbell festival)

Hopefully, you can see us there.

BTW - copies of the new book are now at Horizons bookstore in Petoskey, and soon to be in Traverse City and Cadillac. We are also shipping books to Blue Phoenix in Alpena, and The Bookstore in Manistee, among other stores in the near future. Can't find my books in your favorite bookstore? Ask them to carry the Dogman series, and to contact me at my email: / website:


It is with great pleasure that I can share more news. I'm teaming up with folklorist David Martinka ( to produce an instrumental CD, inspired by the characters and events of my Dogman novels. David is a fabulous artist, focusing on Native American flute and Slovakian flute. Both produce such haunting melodies that capture the essence of the Dogman folktales.

We're going to be putting these together this winter, and hopefully they'll be available for release in late spring or early summer 2011.

And to top it all off, I've started work on a NEW Dogman novel. There are only a few details I can share with you now, but if you want an idea of its storyline, be sure to read Nagual and the first chapter of our new book, Tales From Dogman Country. That'll get you thinking on the right track. Again, if you're interested in a copy of the new book, click the link below:

Thanks again to all of the great fans who came out to see us this fall, and we hope to see you later on the tour!
