Dear Kind Supporters of Derric’s Book: 

It’s a good news, bad news sort of update. 

The good news is that because time is running out on the pre-order campaign, you’re going to get a refund! The bad news is that, for now anyway, Derric’s book will be on hold. It’s my fault, don’t blame Derric! -- just not enough time, it turned out, to devote to a full court press on pre-orders, but one more piece of good news -- Derric’s story still will mostly likely find its way, and his Facebook page will continue to be updated regularly.

Oh, and if you still want to read a book and help the Beagle Freedom Project, don’t forget that I still donate 10% of all royalties from "Women Like Us" to BFP. You can buy and read that book today so here’s the link if ya need it! 


If for some reason you don’t see a credit from Inkshares sometime soon after today when the campaign ends, shoot an email to hello@inkshares.com. You’ll probably get a kind person named Elena and she will make sure it gets done. Alternatively, let me know and I’ll bug them.

Thanks again for the early support. From Derric too!! And sorry we couldn’t make it happen this time around.


Jason and Derric

Hello loyal Derric followers! Arrrooooooo, as the beagles would say! I know, I know...you’ve probably been wondering what’s up with the book, because things have been a bit quiet, and with beagles that’s always suspect...they’re usually getting into some sort of trouble.

Well, the truth is it’s me -- dad’s -- bad. I launched this campaign in the middle of finishing up a second novel -- a follow up to WOMEN LIKE US -- and it took way more of my time and attention than I figured it would to get it ready to get it shopped around. (Side note: if you don’t have a copy of WOMEN LIKE US, why not order one?  10% of all royalties still go the Beagle Freedom). Anyway, now that the bulk of work on the second novel is out of the way, I can focus back on helping Derric get his story out. To that end, the kind folks at Inkshares have extended the campaign for the book, which gives me and the beagle more time to work. 

So...couple of things to announce soon -- first and foremost news on a chapter that will be about The Beagle Freedom Project itself, so thank you everybody for your kind patience and please stay tuned for more!! 

Love, Derric (and, of course, me Jason!) 

Hi! It’s me, Studious Derric! Stay tuned for some updating from Dad about the book.

Hey! Jason here. First, apologies for the delay in updating but between marketing chores on Women Like Us, putting the finishing touches on a follow-up novel and hatching the plot to get it published (more traditional route on this one), other work duties and, well, life, finding time for Derric’s book has been a little challenging. But the good news is most of the writing work on Novel 2 is just about done and now I can focus on helping Derric get his story out. 

One thing I’ll have to do, however, is request an extension from Inkshares for the campaign. I just didn’t leave enough time for this. Hopefully that won’t be an issue. Do always keep in mind that if for whatever reason the book doesn’t hit it’s funding goal, you’re pre-order will be refunded. So thanks for your patience, early supporters, and more to come soon! 

 Love, Derric (and Jason)
