More About the Author:

In her empathy for the plight of the chained dog, Tamira Thayne pioneered the anti-tethering movement in America, forming and leading the nonprofit Dogs Deserve Better for 13 years. Her swan song culminated in the purchase and transformation of Michael Vick’s dogfighting compound to a chained-dog rescue and rehabilitation center. In 2016 she founded Who Chains You, publishing books for those who believe people—and animals—deserve to be free.

Emma, a deaf hound mix, thinks everyone deserves a second chance at life. After all, she’s one of the lucky pups who got to start over—thanks to a kind woman who rescued her after her family dumped her along the side of the road.

Emma learns what it’s like to love again, finds herself not one but two caring families, and even gets the chance to pay it forward, becoming a real-life hero in the process.

Based on the true story of Emma the rescue dog, Emma’s Second Chance is perfect for kids young and old. Who Chains You Publishing is proud to release children’s books that are fun, educational, and stand tall as a voice for the animals.

Honey’s Second Chance

By Brandy Herr

Buy on Amazon | Buy on Kindle | Buy from Createspace and $1 Will be Donated to Unchained Melodies Dog Rescue

Author Brandy Herr has a bit of an unusual but fascinating career.

As a writer and a reader, Brandy’s interests tend to lean towards the macabre. She is the co-founder and tour guide of the Granbury Ghosts and Legends Tour, a ghost tour based around the historic downtown square of Granbury, Texas. She is also the co-host of the Granbury Paranormal Expo, an annual event that brings together ghost hunters, psychics, UFO enthusiasts, horror fans, and others who are interested in the unexplained.

From this came her first full-length book, Haunted Granbury, which describes in more detail the ghost stories from around her hometown as well as her own personal ghost hunting experiences. Her work as an author and a macabre entrepreneur has taken her to several horror and paranormal conventions, where she has been able to meet and network with numerous horror movie and television icons. In 2015, she was invited to speak as a special guest at San Antonio’s MonsterCon.

Wanting to focus more on fiction in order to broaden her audience, Brandy submitted her short story, “The Calico,” for consideration in Nine Deadly Lives: An Anthology of Feline Fiction. The book was released in October 2015, with readers describing her story as “twisted,” “unexpected,” and “dark.”

Her latest piece, Honey’s Second Chance, takes a drastic turn from her previous work. An avid animal welfare advocate, Brandy chose to turn her focus from the fantastic and the unexplained and concentrate instead on the all-too-real horror faced every day by countless animals throughout the country. Taking the form of a children’s book, Honey’s Second Chance tells the story of Honey, an actual dog saved and rehabilitated by Granbury animal rescue Second Chance Farm. Told from Honey’s perspective, readers can learn about the important work done by this incredible rescue organization, and they can understand why dogs should be cared for and treated as a member of the family. Brandy’s prose softens the true nature of the situation to ensure the book is appropriate reading material for all ages. The book, with a couple exceptions, is illustrated using actual photos of Honey and the animals rescued by Second Chance Farm, with artistic twists provided by illustrator Tamira Ci Thayne.

Honey’s Second Chance is available through Who Chains You Publishing. Half of the profits Brandy Herr receives from the book will be donated to Second Chance Farm to help them continue the amazing work that they do.
