Happy Tails Books exists to encourage adoption and raise money for pet rescue organizations. Since 2009, we’ve donated more than $40,000 to our Pet Rescue Partners. From hiring us as your self-publishing partner to purchasing books and gifts through our store, your patronage helps us save more lives. Thank you!

MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue was excited for the opportunity to partner with Happy Tails Books for a fundraiser. It was easy to promote the fundraiser through our newsletter and Facebook page. Our members love the hand-crafted rhinestone design HTB made specifically for our rescue, and we earned more than $350 in one month without having to spend a dime.” - Jennifer Misfeldt, President, MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Testimonial from Dr. Jane M. Biehl, author of the children’s book Here to Bump and Bump to Hear

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!”
