“More than Best Friends”

book-cover-10b-251Author Kevin Morris has just announced that “More than Best Friends” is now available for download. The book is an anthology of stories and poems from more than a dozen writers designed to help raise both funds and awareness for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Kevin writes: “The purpose of this anthology is to raise much needed funds for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, (www.guidedogs.org.uk/), the UK charity which provides highly trained working dogs enabling visually impaired people to live and work independently. As someone who is now working with my fourth guide dog, Trigger (you can see Trigger and I on the front cover) I am acutely aware of the vital role dogs like my four-legged friend Trigger play in enhancing the independence of blind and partially sighted people. All monies donated go directly to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association so do please give whatever you can afford. I and other guide dog owners greatly appreciate your generosity.”
