I think you can see why I’m so excited about this collection.

Recently, I was asked why I got involved with this project and why it’s so important to me. I answered those questions in a quick video. Here it is:

So now you know why I wanted to be involved as an author, but what can readers expect from Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2?

Well, the original Pets in Space was named one of the “Best Books of 2016” in E-Originals Fiction by LibraryJournal.com, and this 2017 collection promises to bring readers all the fun, adventure, romance and, of course, adorable sidekicks that Pets in Space was known for…plus three more stories than the original. That’s twelve novellas instead of nine.

That’s a lot of reading enjoyment packed into one big volume. And I do mean big! This collection is nearly 300,000 words. Readers asked us to consider producing a print version, and their wish was granted. The print version is now available for pre-order and it’s a huge 826 pages. See what I mean?

This story collection offers something for everyone. For readers familiar with some or all of the series mentioned above, Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 promises brand new stories with continuing adventures. For those not yet familiar with the series, it will deliver stand-alone tales to introduce you to some imaginative new fictional universes.

But maybe best of all is the chance to help the wonderful Hero-Dogs organization with your purchase. It’s a cause we all believe in.

Would you like a sneak peek? We’re offering this First Chapter Sampler to interested readers.

And while you’re waiting for release day, the authors invite you to join us for fun and chat in a special Facebook Group.

Or visit the PetsInSpaceAntho website, where you can catch up on news, read more about the stories and the authors, or sign up for our newsletter.

We even have a contest for a free Pets in Space 2 coloring book in PDF. (No worries, everybody wins.)

Thanks so much to Riley for hosting me for this special preview, and to you, the readers, for your interest in learning more about Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2. You can pre-order now, or purchase the book up to 30 days after release to benefit Hero Dogs.
