News & Gratitude

9780143130017_DogMedicine_CVF_q2.inddI’ve been quiet lately, I know.

I’ve been working, but I’ve also been resting before
things get extremely busy this summer. The big news is that  Penguin Books bought Dog Medicine. They are going to release it on July 19th, widely, and have designed an incredibly beautiful cover with a quote from the one-and-only Cheryl Strayed. Unreal. I’ll post tour dates as soon as I have them.

On top of that, the book has sold to Korea, Holland, France, Italy and the UK. I’m still peeling myself off the floor in disbelief over those developments.

And finally, just today, Oprah.com released an astounding list of “Moving Memoirs You Must Read” which had sweet Bunker’s face prominently displayed. I’m so honored to be in the company of such distinguished writers. I have said thank you to about a billion people today. If I missed you, Thank You. 

It’s wonderful and strange to have this level of visibility. For years, I wrote quietly, alone, and without expectation, about the love of my life, who happened to be a dog. It’s sheer bliss to me that our story is so well received, and that my choice to be wildly vulnerable on the page is being met with love and kindness and accolades far and wide.

I’m extraordinarily grateful. More soon!

Love,

Julie
