First Book Award for Dog at the Tinsel Tree!

I'm thrilled to share some exciting news with you! Dog at the Tinsel Tree: Susie's Story has won its first book award: Finalist in the 2024 Feathered Quill Book Awards: Animal-Adult category! 

Rabbit at the Sliding Door: Chloe's Story also placed as a finalist in the same category last year. Even though I didn't place first, second or third, I am grateful and even more motivated to climb higher. (I am a Capricorn, after all. Once us goats climb one mountain, we're ready to climb the next!)

There's a quote in Henry Winkler's new memoir Being Henry that will always push me to keep going when it seems hopeless. He shares his actor's journey in a way that will inspire anyone chasing their dreams. He says, "If you stay at the table long enough..." whatever is meant for you will happen if you keep the faith.

That's what I want you to take away from this announcement. Keep striving! Stay the course no matter what. Rewards come to those who don't give up!

Thank you for joining me on this journey and supporting my passion to help animals in need. I appreciate each and every one of you!

Much Love,

Denise Lee Branco
