AMISSVILLE, VA (February 23, 2018)—A Culpeper County, Virginia book publisher, Who Chains You Books, was awarded the Maxwell medal in the Best Book: Human/Animal Bond category for their title Rescue Smiles: Favorite Animal Stories of Love and Liberation.
The award, presented in February by the Dog Writers Association of America, is the first for the young publishing company, which was founded in 2016 by Tamira Thayne—animal activist, book designer, author, and founder and former CEO of Dogs Deserve Better.
Since its inception, the company has already grown to 24 titles from various authors, with more in the works.
Those who love both animals and books now have an up and coming publishing company to fulfill their needs, as Who Chains You Books releases only books that promote the notion that both people AND animals deserve to be free.
According to their mission, they seek “to amplify the voices of the animals through the empowerment of animal lovers, activists, and rescuers to write and publish books elevating the status of animals in society.”
“As a small publisher—only 1.5 years into our efforts to put out books by and for animal lovers, activists, and rescuers—every small milestone counts. Our first award tells us our work CAN make a difference, CAN bring awareness for animals and those who love them and work on their behalf. It brings us hope, and the will to keep going,” said Thayne.
“I am so excited to be filling this niche, because my passion lies with the animals and those who serve them,” Thayne continued. “Animal lovers need a place where they can read stories from like-minded individuals, stories that can delight, enchant, and inspire them to do more to save the animals in their community.”
Who Chains You Publishing offers books in a variety of genres, from children’s picture books to personal memoirs, educational books, and young adult fictional series.
