Now You Can Get a Second Helping of Happy Ending Rescue Stories from Who Chains You Books.

Praise for the first dose of Rescue Smiles:

FIVE STARS. Rescue Smiles is a truly great, feel good book. The collection of short stories are all well done and pulled me right in. I really enjoyed hearing these various real-life tales about good-hearted people taking in and often saving animals in great need. Each story moves swiftly and they are all tightly written. Several times I was quite surprised at how deeply they moved me.

“These days it seems like there’s bad news everywhere. This book directly counteracts all that. It’s all good news. It gave me a lift just reading it. If you’re an animal lover, you will devour this book. I did and I’ve no doubt that I’ll read it again.”—Scott, July 29, 2018, Amazon.com

The heart of the animal rescue world lies in its stories—of freedom, of love, and of sacrifice by those who not only acknowledge but embrace the human-animal bond and its wondrous gifts.

In our second rescue story compilation, Who Chains You Books is pleased to share a glimpse into the emotional lives of animal rescuers and the living beings they hold close. Join us for another helping of heartwarming anecdotes, as Clancy triumphs, Tallulah escapes, Alex survives, and a host of other animals steal our hearts.

Through these stories, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look into the relationships between rescuers and not only dogs and cats, but horses, cows, pigs, birds, and even a ferret, in this delightful second installment of Rescue Smiles.

We hope you’re as captivated by the kinship between human and animal as we are. With contributions by: Darla Purgason, Heather Leughmyer, Laurie Lee, Sidney DuBois, Ron Smith, Brece Clark, Thalia Dunn, Stephen Plyler, Paul Ernest, Susan Hartland, Melody Whitworth, Rhi Banks, Johnna L. Seeton, Tamira Thayne, Joseph Horvath, C.A. Wulff, Liz Woloski, and Joe Maringo.

About the Book:

shapeshiftercoverlo-drop“I wanted to be the hero of this story, but instead I am the villain.”

Two worlds intertwine in this second of the “Our Side” Collection, where Mediators, Protectors, and Listeners travel the countryside of a simpler world to bring justice and harmony—yet outliers, dragons, ghoblainns, and shapeshifters bely the truth of a society that may not be so simple after all.

Meanwhile, on the “Other Side”, teenagers engage in the age-old ritual of cafeteria wars as they search for a place in modern society, and social hierarchy means everything to girls left on the outside with no way in.

How do these seemingly conflicting worlds collide, and who will turn out to be the self-described “villain”?

Find out in “The Shapeshifter’s Tale”, a story at once thought-provoking and intriguing, for young teens through adults and all those brought into the world of the “Other Side” through “The Listener’s Tale”.

About the Author:

About the Book:

 

Blank white book w/path

If Your Tears Were Human: A Collection of Poetry for Animals in Agriculture is an intensely moving and powerful collection of 25 verses written by Heather Leughmyer and paired with striking photographic images from Vanessa Sarges.

Each year, billions of land animals are raised and killed for their meat, eggs, and milk. To the agricultural industry, they are commodities, dollar signs. But to a growing number of people from all walks of life, these precious souls have purpose beyond our palates. They are unique individuals who experience pleasure and pain. They are companions, they are teachers, and they bring beauty and diversity to the planet we all share.

The poems included in this book were inspired by animals, people and events the author encountered in her activism for animals. Although she has been deeply disturbed by the magnitude of human cruelty toward these innocent beings, she has been just as deeply touched by the people who have bravely protested these injustices and who work relentlessly to make this world a kinder place. These are her heroes; the rebels, the bunny-huggers, those with the largest hearts and the softest souls. These poems honor them and the animals they serve.

About the Author:

Heather Leughmyer graduated from Indiana-Purdue University with a B.A. in English Writing and Linguistics. She is a dedicated vegan, animal rights activist and animal rescuer. Writing has been a passion of hers for as long as she has advocated for animals. By telling their stories and illustrating their pain she hopes to touch a few hearts and change a few minds with her words. She lives in Columbia City, Indiana, with her husband, daughter and several animal companions.

Heather is the author of Adopting Adele, Brave Benny, Courageous Conner, A Rat’s Guide to Owning a Human, If Your Tears Were Human, and co-editor of Rescue Smiles. She is also the founder of Happy Endings Rat Rescue, and a graduate of Indiana-Purdue University with a B.A. in Writing and Linguistics.

About the Photographer:

Vanessa Sarges wanted to make more of a contribution to Animal Rights, and felt that there was no better way to do so than to document their lives through her photography.

She began bearing witness with Toronto Pig Save and capturing the souls who were being transported to slaughter and the brave activists bearing witness with her.

Although taking those photos is both sad and infuriating, many people have contacted Vanessa to say that her photos were the turning point of their lives and that they were transitioning to a vegan lifestyle as a result.

Vanessa and Heather have been friends for many years and Vanessa has taken great inspiration from their friendship and from Heather’s profound poetry. Vanessa was honoured to be asked to contribute to If Your Tears were Human.

About the Book:

listenercover-loAnna didn’t even know she had an aunt. Aunt Moira had appeared the day after Anna’s parents died in a car crash: a tall grey figure through the screen door, silhouetted against the bright sun. The neighbors welcomed her—they were relieved to get Anna off their hands and into the custody of a relative.

But Anna hadn’t warmed to her aunt or her pug, whose eyes eerily tracked Anna’s every move. Something wasn’t right; her investigation leads to a world she’s never seen and even more relatives who live in a quirky village—a village where singers dance in the sky, the elders are hundreds of years old, and everyone has access to magic.

At first bemused, then charmed, Anna settles in to live with her new-found relations—and unravel the mystery of who is trying to kill her.

The Listener’s Tale is a charming fantasy for young teen readers or the young at heart.

A Kindness to Animals Series Book

By Heather Leughmyer
Illustrated by April Pedersen

courageousconnercover18lo-dropLittle Conner was born on the 3rd day of June, to a proud mama cow, one warm afternoon. His mom gently cleaned him, as a good mother would, then he wiggled and wobbled, until finally he stood.

She gave him soft kisses on his velvety head, then faintly he mooed; Conner now needed fed. He found mama’s milk; it was pleasingly sweet. When his tummy was full, he took a nap at her feet.

But his dreams were cut short by the cries of another; someone was taking a calf from his mother! Conner stayed silent as he cowered in fear; he looked up at his mom as the human drew near…

What will Courageous Conner do now? Will he lose the mother he holds dear? Find out in this lyrical rhyming story from author Heather Leughmyer, part of her Kindness to Animals Series. Perfect for ages 6 and up, and excellent for both humane education and library and family story time.

About the Book:

cold fog in mountain village at nightHow would you spend your time if you died and found yourself in Limbo? Most see Purgatory as a kind of in-between afterlife for people who didn’t rate Heaven and don’t deserve Hell. The author’s Limbo is a ghost town that includes animals that had been killed by humans: a dog, some cats, cows, chickens, and wild creatures, too. The animals are content with their lot in the afterlife, but the humans have an infinity of time on their hands and not enough to do. They think about the big issues, of course: the nature of God, how they screwed up in life, and how they can escape Limbo and get into Heaven.

But no one can spend all their time thinking higher thoughts, so mostly they do what they did in life: they gossip, they get on each other’s nerves, and they play poker.

Darla runs the village politics like a PTA Mom. Emmanuel, who has a wonderful singing voice, most enjoys fellowship with the cows. The Preacher, still in his hospital gown, gathers a congregation and makes it up as he goes along. Warren, a former college professor, seeks something to study in a bookless afterlife. You’ll meet The Naked Man, Lily, Traveling Jack, The Chinese Lady, and Trey, a quadriplegic who is freer in death than he was in life. Seventeen-year-old Alyse, the newest person to join the village, decides to bring everyone together by throwing the Limbo equivalent of a neighborhood block party.

If you like Ghost-Lite stories, you’ll love Limbo…you’ll laugh, cry, and ponder what comes next in the great beyond.

“Wraps its ghost arms around you and seeps into your soul.”—Tamira Thayne, author of The Wrath of Dog, The King’s Tether

“Courageous Conner” Tackles the Dairy and Veal Industries Through the Pages of a Children’s Book

courageousconnercover18lo-dropAuthor Heather Leughmyer has added another book to her Kindness to Animals series—this one tackling the not-so-hidden dirty secrets of the dairy and veal industries—and does it all through the pages of a rhyming children’s book.

In the story, Courageous Conner is torn from his mother and faces two challenges: can he be brave enough to find his way back to her side, and will they, together, escape the cruel conditions they find themselves in?

Unwanted calves from the dairy industry are routinely ripped from loving mothers, their flesh turned into the meal of an unthinking or uncaring consumer.

Heather, a long time vegan activist, excels at creating rhyming children’s stories, and is using her gift to create a series advocating for Kindness to Animals. Courageous Conner is the third book in the series, which so far features Adopting Adele and Brave Benny, too. Heather plans to work her way through the alphabet, creating children’s books featuring the many animals who need a little kindness in today’s society.

Courageous Conner is perfect for ages 6 and up, and excellent for both humane education and library and family story time. The book is currently available in both paperback and kindle, and coming soon in audio.
