Description: 

It’s no secret readers love books with dogs on the covers. However, dogs (and other animals) on covers create expectations for three-dimensional characters prominently featured in stories. Making our four-legged friends a dynamic part of the story—not just popping in and out of scenes when convenient—is a craft that takes practice but can deepen reader connection. Learn strategies on how to use animal characters to enrich the story and keep readers turning the pages. 

Debbie Burns, best-selling author of the Rescue Me series featuring happily-ever-afters for the stories' two- and four-legged stars, will share industry insight and story-crafting ideas to help create loveable and memorable four-legged friends who are “major” minor characters readers will root for.

Bio:

Debbie Burns is a best-selling author who writes happily-ever-afters for her stories’ two- and four-legged stars. Her writing commendations include a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly and a TOP PICK from RT Book Reviews for A NEW LEASH ON LOVE, as well as an Amazon Best Book of the Month and a HOLT Medallion Award of Merit for MY FOREVER HOME, yet her favorite praise is from readers who’ve been inspired to adopt a pet in need from their local shelter.  

Debbie lives in Saint Louis with her family, two thoroughly spoiled rescue dogs, and a ridiculously grumpy Maine Coon cat who (most) everyone loves anyway. Find more information at her website: www.authordebbieburns.com
