Advance Review Copies for Dogs n Dracula – A Road Trip Through Romania by Jacqueline Lambert

I have just created a Booksprout account and there are 20 electronic review copies of my new book, Dogs n Dracula – A Road Trip Through Romania, up for grabs if anyone would be kind enough to read and review it by 30th November.
Click here for the link. Please also follow me in the Booksprout App.
Although it is Book 3 in the series, it does stand alone, since each book covers just one of our single trips.
With a mix of fascinating history, spectacular nature, castles and captivating medieval citadels, find out why The Spectator claims that “Romania is “Europe’s most overlooked holiday destination”.

And find out why, according to everyone else, it was somewhere where we would be robbed, scammed, kidnapped by gypsies, eaten by bears or attacked by wild dogs and wolves – if we managed to avoid the floods and riots!

You will learn the truth about Prince Charles – and how we truly did ‘Boldly Go Where No Van Has Gone Before’!

The Fab Four at Corvinilor Castle, Hunedoara, Transylvania

Over the weekend, we entered a competition with the UK’s ‘Dog Friendly’ Magazine.

On Monday, look what had happened! Dogs n’ Dracula was live on the Dog Friendly Blog – and I have been asked to write a series of articles for the magazine!

This is a taste of things to come on World Wide Walkies – our next adventure. Our plan had been to head south through France to Spain and Portugal, but it was 35ºC in Brittany and 50ºC in Portugal – so we turned left instead. We discovered a country of magic and myth – and gained an addition to the family!
