ABOUT THE AUTHOR
#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author W. Bruce Cameron is a clever and engaging writer with a talent for offering uplifting and often laugh-out-loud novels that speak to the hearts of adults and young adults alike.  He’s is the author of numerous dog-centric novels, including the wildly popular A Dog's Purpose—which hit the big screen in January 2017 from Universal—A Dog’s Journey, The Dogs of Christmas, The Dog Master, and The Puppy Tales series for young readers set in the ADP universe.  A major motion picture of his 2017 novel, A Dog's Way Home, starring Ashley Judd, is in production from Sony, and Cameron and his wife and screenwriting partner, Cathryn Michon, are once again the screenwriters.  Cameron is a champion of animal welfare, and his novels encourage humans to love unconditionally, just as dogs do. 

ABOUT THE BOOK
A Dog's Promise continues the story of Bailey, the good dog whose journey started in A Dog's Purpose (the international hit film) and continued in A Dog's Journey (soon to be a major motion picture in May 2019). This time, Bailey is joined by Lola, another very special dog, who helps Bailey fulfill his promise over the course of several lives. This charming, wise canine soul brings joy, laughter, and comfort as he unites a family fractured by life's inevitable obstacles. The love and loyalty of these two memorable dogs shows us the incredible power of hope, truth, and unending devotion in this moving novel by award-winning author W. Bruce Cameron.
