Excerpt

The Runaway

One stormy night a few weeks later King Campbell and his mother had just gone to bed, and just as he was about to drift off to sleep, he heard again the tinkling of dog tags off in the distance. They had an urgent sound to them. “Something is wrong.” He thought.   So, after making certain his mother was fast asleep, checking the house, King Campbell

stretched himself comfortably and once again let himself fade away.

As he appeared in the nursery he noticed that there was much confusion and he could smell fear.

“What is wrong?” He asked one of the mother dogs standing nearest him when he appeared in the room.

“Oh! King Campbell! We have an awful problem!” She howled.

“Why, whatever is the matter?” He asked with some alarm.

“Oh! That little pup that snuggled with you last time, you were here!  She heard that soon it would be her time to leave her mother and go with her first family and she has hidden herself someplace and we have looked and looked, but we cannot seem to find her!”

Now, it had been storming when he had left his human mother, and it was storming there as well.

“Well, now, she’s such a wee thing. She can’t have gotten far. We will split up and search the grounds.”

Soon, King Campbell, had all the pups gathered together, along with their mothers, and he gave each of them an assigned place to look. He remembered many things about the nursery and the land around it, and he was ever sure that they would find her without much trouble at all. He made sure to keep the wee pup’s mother close to him so she would not be too afraid, and off they went into the storm.

The lightning flashed! The thunder crashed! And how the wind did blow! The rain was falling hard, yet all the dogs and pups looked and looked. Sniffing here, sniffing there. They looked inside and outside too. They sniffed under bushes, and around trees. They looked under furniture in the nursery, and even in toy boxes, closets, and drawers. A bunch of little Labrador pups even tried to look in the food bins, and when they did not find her they decided to stop for a quick snack.

King Campbell chased them out saying, “No! No! She is not in there! You leave! It! Stop that!”  

Pretty soon though, they had looked everywhere they could think of and still there was no sign of her. It was getting later and later, the storm was worse than ever, yet still, they had not found her. As King Campbell stood with his head down, trying to think what to do, an idea suddenly came to him. He raised his head and barked very loudly!

“Woolf! Woolf! Woolf!”  The room fell still and he said, “Listen! Listen! Everyone! I have an idea! It is magik, and it just might work! At home when my human mother is missing special people in her life and wishes to draw them to her in some way, she sings a special song. I am going to sing it, and when you think you have the words join me! Now, come on! All gather round! Let us make a circle. All grasp paws! That’s right, come on! All together now! And remember, when you have the words sing.” He began to sing.

 

“Listen to the bird’s sing.

Listen to the chimes ring.

Listen to King Campbell’s bell ringing.

Listen to the rain fall.

Listen to my heart call.

Listen to King Campbell’s bell ringing.”

 

Soon all the mothers and pups were singing, but the wee pup’s mother was still crying and had not yet begun to sing. King Campbell turned to her. “You must sing! You must! You must sing and you must believe! Now sing!”

  7. Awesome, this looks great. I’d love to interview about your work and yourself:) I run author interviews and I’m especially interested in connecting with authors who are disabled.
    Reading and writing are glorious gifts that bring freedom, adventure, and often equality. We can be creators, destroyers, lovers, heroes, rich, poor or anything we want, and live any life we want.

    If you’re interested drop me an email on libraryoferana@gmail.com or via my blog https://libraryoferana.wordpress.com/contact-inf/

    1. Hi.
      How exciting.
      So glad you like what you see here.
      Yes, I’m interested. I’ll be in touch.
      I also have clients who I help promote who might be interested in interviewing with you as well.
      Is it alright to give your info out?
      Many of the authors I represent are disabled. Some, like me have more than one disability.
      Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

  8. Sure, get them to contact me. The more the merrier!
    Re audiobooks – I can recommend a couple of narrators who do royalty share – so that’s an option. Not all the narrators do, and I am not sure how they are fixed at present but I can pass on their details.
    Audiobooks rock!

    1. Hi.

      Send on the info.

      Thanks.

  9. You could try https://www.nnlightsbookheaven.com/ – the free service is a book spotlight and she is usually fairly booked up but it’s worth asking. The paid-for services are more expansive and quicker but still pretty reasonable.
