Julie Strauss Bettinger's latest update for Encounters with Rikki

Mar 14, 2016

Five Stars - Times Two!

Rikki’s book is building momentum and I wanted share some of the successes with our followers. . . 

  • Encounters with Rikki has retained its "five star" rating with 21 readers on Goodreads.
  • The book has 18 reviews on Amazon, all with five stars as well.
  • The Chicago Tribune published a review and the story is being picked up in other markets. So far there have been sightings in Central Florida and Richmond, Virginia.
  • Chuck Mitchell and I continue to answer interview requests, including radio. And Rikki is still very much enjoying the limelight during personal appearances!
Thank you to those who have taken valuable time to write reviews or give a rating. Of course, the most gratifying of all is to hear that a reader "couldn’t put the book down." That’s every author’s dream!

If you haven’t yet provided a review, consider this to be your invitation. Readers need to hear your voice and every review assures more people will hear about how Therapy Dogs are changing lives. Which means more lives will be changed...

Thank you, again, for being part of Rikki’s journey. You’re our early readers – and you made it happen!
