Announcing My Newest Book – Bucca Comes Home!

Bucca Comes Home Cover

I’m so excited, I want to announce my 1st children’s eBook, Bucca Comes Home, about our so-loved Newfie Bucca. This has been in the works for a while, but I finally found an incredibly talented artist (and friend), Brenda Salomé Salamone, to bring the art to life. Now available on Amazon for Kindle, I hope to get a print version ready soon. I just wanted to share.  If you are kind enough to get a copy of the book, please write an Amazon review if you enjoyed the book, I would appreciate your input.

Have a great weekend,

About the Author

Ellen Crane, author of 10 Steps to a Happier You, and the children’s book, Bucca Comes Home (A Newfoundland’s Tale), lives in her home state, the great state of Texas, with her Husband of “a little over 5 years”, and yes, that’s a joke.  The Cranes can often be found boating on a local lake during warm weather.

Ellen Crane has always enjoyed writing for numerous projects for magazines and newsletters.  After having ideas for books in her head for years, she’s now devoting time to writing and publishing.

A lifelong gardener, she particularly enjoys growing orchids, as well as reading, crochet, dollhouse miniatures and model trains.  Sadly, the 4pack of Newfoundland dogs have all crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but Ellen & Husband look forward to starting a new puppy pack soon.

"Naughty" Corena

A few years ago, Miss Corena, a shy sweet girl came to live with us.  She had only been with us a couple of months when Thanksgiving rolled around.  I was in the living room when I suddenly heard something in the kitchen.  I walked in to find Corena eating the freshly baked Pumpkin Pie (Husband’s favorite pie, of course) with Bucca standing beside her in shock at her naughtiness. 

Instead of grabbing the pie away from her, I grabbed the camera to take this fun picture.  I honestly don’t think Hubby has ever forgiven me for not rescuing his beloved pie (he had 2 more in the oven), but it’s one of my favorite pics of Corena.  The next year she was ‘Miss November’ in the Newf’s Gone Bad calendar and they jazzed the pic up with a poem and the marching pies.

We hope you have a very happy Thankgiving!  Drive safe if you are on the roads!  We’ll be at home, relaxing and enjoying our days off and our Newfies.

Hugs to you all,  Ellen

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, even if it is a little belated!

Husband and I decided to do something different this year and we took a short cruise (our first ever) to the Bahamas.  We were without internet or cellphone and amazingly we had a great time!  I’ll have pics and more later, but just wanted to say that we’re back.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful and special time together this week.  I want to leave you with this picture of our naughty Newfie girl, Corena, eating Husband’s pumpkin pie!  This picture was published in the Newfs Gone Bad calendar for 2008 and I truly cherish it.

More pics and blogs later… Hugs, Ellen
