Bau: It’s here!

It’s finally on sale – a book which I have been working on for years.

Throughout these years the book’s title has changed. It first was Only the Lonely, inspired by Roy Orbison’s iconic song Only the Lonely and which I also included as a quote in the beginning of the novel.

Then the title became The Boy Next Door but I found it told only part of the story. The Set Up was the third title but after a bit of research I found that there were too many books with that title.

Finally, I settled with Just Before Sunrise because it evokes the question: What happened just before sunrise? Which is the whole point of the story.

Right now, Bau, who has been so tolerant throughout this process is still manifesting his patience and control. He is just eagerly waiting for me to finish this post and press publish so that he can go for his well earned walk.

I am very proud to present my dog Mom’s latest novel Just Before Sunrise. It is available in both e-book and paperback.

I hope that those of you who will read it will enjoy it.

    • It’s a mixed feeling, Claudia. I wonder if in the editing and reediting and reediting I haven’t missed something important. Then there’s also the relief that it is out there beyond my control as far as the writing of the story goes. Writing a book takes up a lot of energy.
      But, yes, all in all it does feel good and I’m happy about it.
      Thanks for your interest ❤


  1. Wow! You’re going to be able to buy a Lexu after all your friends purchase a copy!!! (That’s if you don’t already drive precious Bau around in one?) I get your post a little later than the others obviously because I wanted to be the first one to buy it.. Anyway, as life would have it, I just finished a novel yesterday! Hope I get some sleep tonight! You go girl and I’m popping open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the occasion. ❤

    • I wish I was with you, Elli, to enjoy the bubbly! Thank you for your precious support. I hope you’ll enjoy the book. It’s always a bit scary putting out my work out there. xx


    • Oh, Sheindl, I am so happy to hear from you. Our short writing journey together is very precious to me, Thank you for the birthday wishes. I’m very much looking forward to hearing what you’ve been up to. xxx


  2. Thank you for sharing and congratulations!!… I know many will like the book and I wish you all the best and much success!!.. I do like the title… I expect that Bau is now ready to move on and do Bau things, perhaps have a new adventure and create another story… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    (Irish Saying)
