Latest news from Ted Kerasote and Pukka

I know many of you enjoy Ted Kerasote's books as much as I do, so here's the latest news from Ted and Pukka, and some great news about how you can buy e-book versions at a bargain price over the summer:

Dear Friends and Readers,

I hope you're having a good summer. Pukka and I have been working on new books, riding bikes, hiking, and running rivers. You can check out photos from these adventures on our Facebook page.

I'll be doing a short book tour at the end of August, during which I'll be discussing Pukka's Promise: The Quest For Longer-Lived Dogs. I'll be appearing at the Book Court in Brooklyn, New York on August 26, 2013, at Planet Dog in Portland, Maine on August 27, at Left Bank Books in Belfast, Maine on August 28, and at the Southwest Harbor Public Library in Southwest Harbor on Mt. Desert Island, Maine on August 29.

Many of you have wondered if my out-of-print books would ever be offered as e-books. That day is finally here. You can now buy Navigations, Bloodties, and Heart of Home for Kindle by going to this link on my website. The books will be priced at $6.99, but for the next three weeks I'm running an introductory special and you'll be able to purchase them for $2.99 each.

I also wanted to let you know that the e-book for Merle’s Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog is only $2.99 for the month of August. You can order here.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer, and I hope to see some of you while I'm on my East Coast book tour.

All our best,

Ted and Pukka
