We are in the process of creating a book full of “happy tails” specifically about our rescue partners’ dogs. These books are part of a pilot program for a service we’d like to provide to many rescues in the future (the first book for GDFRL is well on its way!). If you love our Lost Souls: FOUND! series, you’ll love these books, too, as they follow a similar format.
Keep an eye out for these Lost Souls: FOUND! RESCUE STORIES books later this year.
Many of your favorite titles are now available as audio books. They can be easily downloaded from Audible, Amazon, or iTunes. Click here to see the entire list of Lost Souls: FOUND! books that are available from Audible, or simply look up your favorite title in iTunes.

Testimonial from Dr. Jane M. Biehl, author of the children’s book Here to Bump and Bump to Hear:
“One must be careful about stereotypes. After several years of talking to writers and participating in a writing group, I was terrified about working with a real-life editor.
Until I worked with Happy Tails Books.
Kyla Duffy and her support staff are knowledgeable, caring, experienced, and a joy to work with. They transformed a novice like me into a “real” writer with an excellent book that has received positive reviews. I do not feel the book was self-published but jointly published.
The people behind Happy Tails Books have a wealth of experience and an unbelievable work ethic with tons of energy. I never waited more than a day to receive a response to a question and usually received one immediately. I found all of their suggestions helpful and would recommend them to anyone who wants to publish a book!”
We’ve expanded our “Adopted. Who’s Next?” series to feature mugs, pillows, clothing, dog shirts, and more!
