>Earlier this month I emailed many of you announcing that my new book,
>"Thunder Dog, A Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground
>Zero " was released on August 2.  .  Please continue to tell the world about
>its release and please encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to
>order Thunder Dog.  I would appreciate your help very much.
>Now, I am excited to tell you that in its first week of release it has
>climbed to the rank of #29 on the combined New York Times Best Sellers list
>for print and eBooks.  This is incredible according to my publisher and book
>agent.  I wanted to share the exciting news.  I hope that you have purchased
>your own copy and have enjoyed Thunder Dog.  If you want to buy one please
>visit www.michaelhingson.com and click on "Order Thunder Dog".  All copies
>come autographed and pawtographed by me and Roselle.
>Thunder Dog continues to zoom up the Amazon and Barnes and Noble charts.  If
>you want to read the story of Roselle and me as well as learn some life
>lessons around
>9-11 you can now purchase the cd audio book or a print book at bookstores.
>Better yet, as mentioned above, you can visit www.michaelhingson.com and
>purchase copies.  The pawtograph from Roselle is especially meaningful to
>me, and I hope to you, because it was obtained just six days before Roselle
>passed on June 26, 2011.
>The books reviews continue to be pretty tremendous.  I hope that "Thunder
>Dog" will help inspire people as raise their awareness about blindness.  The
>book is available in audio cd, and print editions, both available at
>www.michaelhingson.com.  The audio edition has some extras including a
>speech I gave last year at the National Federation of the Blind convention
>in Dallas before 3,000 blind people.
>I also wish your help on another front.  In June, Roselle was nominated as a
>candidate to receive the American Dog Hero award from the American Humane
>Association.  Her nomination has progressed and she is now one of the eight
>finalists.  The link I sent you earlier this month apparently had a problem.
>I have corrected the difficulty.  Again I am asking you to take the time and
>vote for her at www.herodogawards.org/view-entries.html#view/359/220458.
>You can vote daily through September 30, 2011.  I would appreciate you
>spreading the word about this and helping Roselle win.  A victory for
>Roselle includes a substantial donation to Guide Dogs for the Blind, her
>Alma Mater.
>Thanks for all your encouragement and support over the years.  As always, if
>you know of anyone or any organization needing a speaker I am always looking
>for opportunities and would appreciate you passing on my name and contact
>information.  I hope all is well with you.
