Pre-order swag for Two Dogs 2!

by | Jan 14, 2019 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

It’s pre-order time for the next book in my Two Dogs in a Trench Coat series, Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Start a Club by Accident!

In this book, dogs Waldo and Sassy are still following their boy Stewart to school. Everyone is joining after-school clubs, but the dogs don’t want to go with Stewart to Junior Office Supply Enthusiasts, because there are no snacks.

They decide to wait for him in the cafeteria, where they sneak into the kitchen, play with basketballs and…start a club (by accident!).

Why Junior Office Supply Enthusiasts? I guess I write what I know. It’s a club I’d love to have joined. I’m a writer whose first job out of college was at Staples.

But you don’t have to get a job in an office supply store to join Junior Office Supply Enthusiasts; all you have to do is pre-order Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Start a Club by Accident.

  1. Order Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Start a Club by Accident (you can order it wherever you like, from your local independent bookstore or an online retailer…links are here). Forward the receipt to me at, along with your mailing address so I can send you your swag.
  2. If you want a SIGNED, PERSONALIZED book, order from Bull Moose. All pre-orders from Bull Moose will be signed. If you also want your book to be personalized, reply to your Bull Moose order confirmation email and tell them what you want me to write.
    (Important: Bull Moose only tells me which orders requested personalization, not who orders the others. So don’t assume that I’ll see that you ordered a book and write “Hi, Booper! Love, Julie” on it. I won’t know it’s your book unless you hit reply and say you want me to personalize it. You can reply and say “just tell Julie to write whatever she wants” and then I’ll write something special for you.)
    (The flip side is, if you want a signed book but don’t want me to know you ordered, because we’re enemies, then don’t reply to your Bull Moose order confirmation email, and I’ll never know.)

I will send you mail, including a postcard written from me to you, a pen, and a mini notebook.

The mini notebook is for your important work as a Junior Office Supply Enthusiast, whatever that may be. It has the book cover on the back and is blank inside, in case your important work involves drawing.

The pen is also for important Junior Office Supply Enthusiast work.

Just like two dogs in a trench coat make one human student named Salty who is from Liver, Ohio, two pens make one pen for important Junior Office Supply Enthusiast work. This pen has both a writing pen AND a highlighter! And while the outside of the pen is blue, the ink color is black, just like sometimes the outside of the student is a trench coat but the inside is two dogs. The highlighter is yellow because that’s what Stewart’s Junior Office Supply Enthusiasts club determined is the best color.

Best of all, the pen clip has a tiny secret drawing of Waldo and Sassy in their trench coat. How cool is that? (ANSWER: IT IS SO COOL I CAN’T BELIEVE THE THINGS I CAN ORDER ON THE INTERNET AND SHARE WITH YOU.)

I will also send you a bookmark from the first book, because I still have some and because I think they’re hilarious.

Now, as they say in the world of trying to get you to make some kind of action, DON’T DELAY. You only have until January 28 to pre-order.

Thank you! Let me know if you have any questions!

    Hi, does it count if we order from a scholastic book order from our school?
