What’s Your Favorite Donut?
Writing a book is hard, but I swear, marketing one is even harder! Push too hard, you lose people. Push enough, you gain a reader. They (you know, the Big They) say that a new customer needs to see a product (my book cover) an average of seven times before he or she will purchase it. However, they also say that people can become desensitized if they see something too much. It’s a fine line, and as it is with everything, too much of anything is rarely a good thing.
Which brings me to donuts.
What’s your favorite donut? Believe it or not, donuts play an important role in In the Doghouse. I’m working on some marketing materials, and your answer will really help me.
Email me your fave, and then go get yourself a donut–you’ve earned one. If I was there, I’d treat you to one.
And if you do go and get one, share a pic of you, and maybe yours, via email or on social media–tag me on Facebook, Instagram (teriLcase), or Twitter (@tericase_author).
Thanks for being you. And before you leave, check out the Congratulations Corner in the next section. Creative People are up to some good things!
Early Reviews of In the Doghouse
“Brilliant book!” — Net Galley Reviewer.
“This is not a fluffy animal story, in spite of its humor. It’s about love, loss, and grief. It’s about breaking apart and picking up the pieces. It’s about healing. You’ll pick up In the Doghouse because you love animals, but you’ll close it loving humans just a little bit more.” –Goodreads Review
“In the Doghouse is a story of love, loss, guilt, and new beginnings told from the hilarious yet wise perspective of the lovable family dog.”—Cathey Nickell, Author
“Teri Case has done it again! She’s a gifted storyteller, no matter whose point of view she’s writing from.”—Kathryn Brown Ramsperger, Author
“Incredible! So fresh, uplifting, bittersweet, heartfelt, and emotionally honest. There’s a list of people in my life who need to read this book for so many reasons.”—Lizette Clarke, Author Accelerator

Congratulations to Amanda Zieba for her now released
Emmy Dawson is in over her head. This time she’s not just trying to convince herself she can run a successful chocolate business, nor is she cooking to impress a stuffy board of directors. This time she’s competing in a reality candy making championship and is trying to win over all of America. The Vanderbilt Valentine’s Day Candy Making Competition, held at the famous Biltmore Estates, will host eight talented candy makers–all with jumbo-sized hopes and dreams . . . and egos. Emmy wants desperately to win and to prove to her tiny town she is more than a stay afloat business owner and just the girl who dates Eddie Edwards. Even though the North Carolina weather makes for easier winter driving, Emmy’s road to victory is paved in potholes. A snarky TV producer, a real-life baker Barbie, and a talented pool of candy makers, not to mention a healthy dose of stage fright, stand in her way. Being filmed for Prime Time TV in sunny North Carolina might sound more glamorous than Duluth in February, but Emmy is about to learn the hard way that, sometimes, reality bites.
