Tuesday News—Books as Gifts

Today is the release day for The Daily Coyote: A Story of Love, Survival, and Trust in the Wilds of Wyoming by Shreve Stockton. I’ve really been looking forward to this book and can’t wait for my copy to arrive. Someone on my Christmas gift list will also receive a copy.

From what I’ve gleaned from the author’s website, she moved to Wyoming from NYC and soon adopted a 10-day-old orphaned coyote, who she named Charlie. Charlie still lives with her, and his life has been well documented and beautifully captured in photographs.

To celebrate the book’s release, she’s doing a live BogTV broadcast from Wyoming today and inviting everyone to tune in. Anyone can watch, or you can create an account and log in to chat. Check her website for complete details about the book and today's broadcast.

While I’m on the subject of books as gifts, have you considered giving an electronic book as a gift this Christmas? My December '07 Harlequin American Romance, With This Ring, is still available from and (Kindle edition).

The hero in With This Ring rescued an Old English Sheepdog named Max, and you're sure to fall in love with both of them! On my website I've also posted some fun stuff about sheepdog rescue, and a couple of stories told by Max himself.

And if you send me an email at lee (at) leemckenzie (dot) com and give me your snail mail address, I’ll be happy to send you a bookmark. Okay, so you don’t actually need a bookmark for an electronic book, but they’re really nice bookmarks, and I’ll even autograph it for you.

Happy reading!

Until next time,

The cover of Daily Coyote is beautiful! I've enjoyed checking out Charlie's photos on the website from time to time so now I'm looking forward to reading the book.

BTW, can we get your first book, The Man for Maggie, as an ebook, Lee?

Charlie has a lot of fans!

Thanks for asking about The Man for Maggie. It is out of print and was never released as an ebook, but I see copies available through Amazon.

Daily Coyote looks like a real comfort read, I'll definitely tract it down.

E-books are a wonderful idea for Christmas! And I loved With this Ring; even though it's Christmas in July, it's a very romantic holiday read!

Thanks so much, Gillian! The Christmas in July theme was a lot of fun to write, and I especially love the cover they did for this book.

Enjoy The Daily Coyote. I know I will!

Chiming in late (as per usual!) but Daily Coyote looks awesome and I'll definitely check it out.

With This Ring is a fabulous idea for a Christmas present. And Max is a delightful character!

Thanks, Sheryll! I'm so glad you enjoyed Max! I'll always have a soft spot for himself myself.
