New Book Launch: the Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3. New Christmas Video.

Finally, I am pleased to say my latest Book, The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3 is finished and launched. It is in review at the time of writing this, but will be available on Amazon imminently.

I will update this page when it is live for purchase.

I think this is the most fun I have had in this series, and a proper adventure, but with a lot of laughter and silliness. The ending is wonderful, and will tug at the heart strings.

Here is the cover:

The Dog That Wouldn't Sit 3 Book Cover
The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3

Here is the blurb:

Champion is a dog, full of wonder, big eyes and scruffy, but full of love.

Ethel is an older lady, but full of love and someone who enjoys the simplicity and quiet in life.

And these two wonderful, thoughtful individuals have one thing in common: they love being awkward!

The big day has arrived. Ethel is busy enjoying a relaxing moment, but Champion, the big hairy horse like dog, wants to have fun. What does a dog do when he wants to enjoy when the lady of the house doesn’t?

He goes out for his big day out, that’s what.

The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3 follows the big dog’s grand adventure as he gets out of the house and on to the bus, sitting bolt upright in the seat, heading for who knows where?

Imagine Ethel, seeing her dog, sitting beside the window, looking at her as the bus leaves, as if he might wave goodbye for now as he sets off.

Ethel does what she should, rushes off in chase, but is joined by a troop of others, a busybody council man, an older admirer, a reporter, police, and all sorts in a common cause of catching that dog!

Join them all in Champion’s grand adventure and find out who wins in the biggest battle of wills yet.

There can be only one.

Who will it be?

Roll on for The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3.

I have narrated a new video on my Official YouTube channel. It is a Christmas Short Story, a lovely old tale from Victorian times.

It seems very popular and I am sure you will love it, so have a listen here if you like.

The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3 Finished & New Video

I am pleased to say that the third in the series of the Dog That Wouldn’t Sit is finally finished. It is currently being edited and will hopefully be on sale within the next week or so.

I have enjoyed writing this as much as any book I have written, as it flowed so well and I have come to know the characters so well. I love how the dog Champion has such a character of his own and comes across as being so daft but so intelligent.

I will be sure to post here as soon as the sale goes live.

I have narrated a new video, which is a poem by Susanna Moodie, and is very appropriate for the time of year, the subject being winter. I enjoyed narrated it and creating the video. It is live on YouTube and available to watch here on my official site.

Winter by  Susanna Moodie


My latest novel is my 16th, and I am loving everything about it. I have no set ideas of what is to be next, but I will be back at it writing for my next novel, set for release in the new year.

I have spent time looking back at some of my old works, and can see how much work some of these need, from editing to formatting, and a lot of my time over the next couple of months will be dedicated to fixing them all.

All of my novels were edited, but as I have found not all editors are equal, and not all of them are real. Just because someone is an avid reader it doesn’t mean they are a capable editor.

My newer books demonstrate the much higher level of work gone into making them and should be as perfect for your enjoyment as possible.


I will update you all again soon once my latest noevel is on sale.

I hope you are all well.

Take Care.

Two New Audio Short Stories & New Book Update

While deep in the process of writing my new book, I have narrated a couple of new videos.

The first is my reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death.

I always loved this, primarily from seeing the Vincent Price film which always struck me for its sense of suspense, not to mention how odd it all felt, which from narrating the story I can say it does reflect well.

This is the video here:

The Masque of the Red Death Narrated by DJ Cowdall

My next narrated video is a short story that I wrote. When I became strongly interested in writing, this was in fact the first story I ever wrote. It will be a strong indicator of where I was at early in my writing career and where I am at now. I’m sure you will see a difference if you have read other work by me.

Still, it is fun, and I enjoyed reading it once more. Hopefully you will too.

Just One More Go. Written & Narrated by DJ Cowdall


I am pleased to say that my work on The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3 is coming along at a pace. I am two thirds through now, and it should be available to buy any time. I will be sure to post here, on my Official Amazon page and on Goodreads soon.

The story this time I think is stronger than ever, and along with a ton of humour also allows for a filling out of other characters and events. Hopefully you will enjoy it.

I guess autumn is upon us just about, which brings with it cooler, wetter weather, but the positive from that is more time indoors, and more time reading.

Thank you once again for all your support.

DJ.

A longer, twenty two minute short story narrated by myself.

This is another in the practice sessions that I am engaging in and uploading to my YouTube channel at: DJ Cowdall – YouTube Here there are poems and stories, as well as book snippets and full-length audio books to come, all narrated by me.

This was very much a learning opportunity for me, and took quite a bit of effort and work. One thing I am learning is how much work goes into audio book narration.

Any comments, please do feel free to email me or comment on the video on YouTube.

As always, progress on my latest book is going well, and I am very much enjoying writing The Dog That Wouldn’t Sit 3.

Please enjoy this new video
