A little plug for both my husband and my friend. Over a year ago, my hubby, Matthew Read decided to team up with our amazingly creative friend, Marco Zaffino to help him publish his debut novel. Marco is a photography, filmaker, screenwriter and novel writer, all around unique, creative and amazing! My husband, has a background in copywriting, journalism and editing, he’s a hard worker and ambitious. So as a team, things were looking exciting from the offset.
Today, we received the first editions of Pure Bred Chihuahua by Marco Zaffino, edited by Matthew Read and published by Matt’s new, little company, Pitseleh Publishing. The cover art was created by Marco’s genius wife, Becki Zaffino.
Here’s the blurb about this novel:
