New Release The Fellowship Flock

This is my absolute favorite book I have written to date.  It is funny and has "churchie" drama.

The Fellowship Flock  by Debi Stanton

      Fellowship First is the only church in Fairhope, Alabama, so if you need some “churchin’” that’s where you attend.  The members are known as The Fellowship Flock, a term given to them by the oldest member of the congregation, Oldham Jacobson.  Oldham is known for turning a phrase!

As with many “churchie” communities, there is a feeling of camaraderie, spiritual love, and drama….oh yes, there is drama!  Not everyone in Fairhope attends the little church, but you can bet that everyone at the church knows what is going on with everyone in town.  And, if you didn’t know what was going on before, you are about to be enlightened!

 Buy it today on www.buymebooksnow.com  or on www.amazon.com

This story is fiction.  While Fairhope, Alabama does exist, all characters represented here are fictionalized.  Any likeness to those living or dead is purely coincidental.

New Release: The Loooooooong and The Short of It: A Dachshund Coffee Table Book

A couple of weeks ago, I released my latest book, The Long and The Short of It!:  A Dachshund Coffee Table Book.  I was really excited when orders came flooding in for this book.  I had selected photos submitted from Dachshund lovers around the country and compiled a very adorable book.  It is full of photos, Dachshund trivia, health information, doggie recipes, and much more. 

Even more exciting, was the fact that I was invited to Frederick, MD (close to Washington, DC) to be a speaker/author at Dachtoberfest.  How exciting!  My husband I leave on Friday and I can't tell you how thrilled I am.  If you live in the Washington, DC area, come see me on Saturday, October 3rd.  Oh yeah, and it's my birthday!  What a birthday present!

You can order your copy of this adorable book for $15.99.  Options are to order from Amazon or order direct from me for a signed copy.  Email me at debih7606@frontier.com for more information.

Pay via PayPal using email debin7606@frontier.com.
Thanks everyone!
Oh, my next project is going to be a Dachshund Rescue Book from Rescues around the country!
