Dogs of Influence – immortalise your dog!

My new book, Walker and the missing millions will be coming out on the 25th March.

You can pre-order on amazon from the link or go to Firefly Press directly, and get a signed copy and free badge too before the 4th March.

Every day throughout March, up until publication day, I will be drawing a different dog and creating a character on my YouTube channel. Not any old dog, but Dogs of Influence. It could be your dog or a dog you know!

In the next book about Walker, the boy who can talk to dogs, there will be a scene at a dog show called – Dogs of Influence and your dog could be there, in the book, as a character!

I have chosen all the dogs for this project – many thanks for your interest. You can see all the dogs I drew from this link.
