Indies Unlimited contributing author Chris James is pleased to announce the release of his new comedy/picture book The B Team and Me, or How five adorable puppies nearly ruined my life.
When a struggling writer reluctantly agrees to give a home to a stray dog, he gets far more than he bargained for. The dog gives birth to a litter of pups that turn the writer’s life upside down and threaten to ruin him.
A hilarious comedy-picture book that shows five cute, adorable puppies as you’ve never seen puppies before!
Chris says that he was encouraged to take a break from writing his current science fiction novel by two Twitter friends, “When my dog had the puppies in the spring, I put up a few jokey blog posts with pictures and these friends suggested I publish them in a book. At first I thought that copy-and-pasting the posts into a book would be unfair, in that I would charge people for something I’d previously been happy to give away, but then I realised that I could take the idea one step further. I created characters, a proper story arc, then sifted through the hundreds of pictures I’d taken of the pups, so the reader not only gets a funny short story of the chaos the pups cause, but also over 50 of the best photographs I took.”
Although the humour is a little racy in places, Chris believes The B Team and Me would make the perfect gift for animal lovers and anyone who has a soft spot for cute, adorable puppies.
The B Team and Me is available from Amazon US and Amazon UK, and in print from Lulu. In addition, Chris decided to put this book into Amazon’s KDP Select programme, something he’s always said he’d never do with his books, and he is now wondering what the appropriate dressing is that one should have when one eats one’s own words.
