While I miss Banjo frequently, I know the little dog’s spirit is still with me. Never had I met a tougher animal than him; he just wanted to live. Banjo the dog was 10% teeth, 20% brains and 70% heart. And that heart drove a will stronger than any person I know.
So it only makes sense that a book dedicated to him would have an equally strong will. Last week I was on the Dave Ramsey show talking about it. His website offered the book at rock-bottom price for 48 hours to coincide with my appearance on the show. ”Bring 200 books. We’ll probably sell 100 and keep 100 on reserve,” they said.
Within ten minutes,they had sold 150. The plug ended up being pulled early on the special because amazing sales had wiped out my remaining inventory of books.
Needless to say, I’m ordering more books.
On Christmas morning, I received dozens of tweets from people unwrapping their book. I had photos of it sitting next to fried chicken and a glass of wine. Yesterday, I received a long note from a lady explaining how it had changed her life.
It’s the little book that could.
And it is just like the little brown dog it honors.
If you’d like a copy, you can order one from Lemuriabooks.com. Soon, I will be getting it on Amazon. We’re working on national distribution (although Lemuria can ship anywhere in the world). An e-version is on the horizon and I might even do an audio book.
Banjo would be proud of “his” book.
I know I am .
