Deals, steals, and news from author Michelle Isenhoff.

Did you know the Chow-Chow is one of the oldest dog breeds? When I wrote Song of the Mountain, I had fun blending fiction with Asian history to create a legend that could have taken place in the region's distant past. As an unabashed dog lover, I had to put the Chow-Chow in my book.

This medium- to large-sized breed resembles a Teddy bear and has filled many roles in its 3000-year history: guard dog, sled dog, hunter, food source, and the companion of Chinese nobles. The breed features across my Mountain Trilogy in the character of Kintu, the exceptionally long-lived guardian of Li-Min, a mysterious old man who's been sent to earth for a very specific task. Theirs is a  task that will ensnare 13-year-old Song and shape the destiny of the world.

Speaking of dogs, I thought I'd give you a puppy update. Turns out Toffee LOVES biking with me. I've just cleared 500 miles on the season, and she's joined me for 50 of those! She's only 9 months, so we don't go far at a stretch, but she insists on a trot around town every time I come home from a ride.

Here she is suited up and ready to roll!

Before you go, be sure to check out the books and promos featured below. They're always free or bargain priced. I generally bounce between speculative and historical fiction (the main genres I write in), and sometimes some fantasy, middle grade, or a bit of romance, just to keep things interesting. 

Happy reading!
