Our hearts go out to the Earthquake victims in South Asia. There has been so much worldwide devastation over the past few months and we hope that aid and comfort reach those affected swiftly to save them from starvation, disease and exposure to the cold. May they find strength and peace as they overcome this horror to rebuild their lives.

Congratulations to John Banville on the Man Booker Prize for his novel
The Sea. Although in interviews he says he was surprised, but he must have known there was magic in the words he wrote. Writers just know when they've "nailed it". What makes this victory even sweeter, in my opinion, is that The Sea is in part, autobiographical. The inspiration to us all is that the win only took thirty-five years and fourteen books.

I'm happy to say that a few published authors have expressed interest in contributing both fiction and articles to The Scruffy Dog Review, but you'll have to wait to see who. Stay tuned! When I asked why, they said they liked the concept of the magazine and wanted to be a part of it.

Since we are an international publication, I'd like to pose a question to the readers of The Scruffy Dog Review: Which authors would you like to see interviewed here?

You can send your answers to thedog@thescruffydogreview.com and we'll do our best to bring you, the reader, all that you request.

Submissions are rolling in but we still want yours! Check out the submissions guidelines on the website.

The Scruffy Dog Bookshelf is still under construction. If you'd like to recommend a book to our shelf, please send your recommendation to thedog@thescruffydogreview.com.

And of course there is still room on The Dog's Picks page for advertising. Rates are extremely reasonable right now, but will increase as the readership grows. To advertise at The Scruffy Dog Review for a writing or book related business, please contact us at thedog@thescruffydogreview.com.

There is still so much more to come so please stop back by . . . .
