    "Pay it Forward pre-order..."

    Two copies of the book with color hardcover, and color illustrations. One hand-stamped with Benny's paw print, and one extra to give to a friend, or leave somewhere as a random act of kindness - in a coffee shop, or anywhere you think people would stumble across it.

    These spares are meant to float from one place to another, like dandelion seeds, landing wherever they're needed, whenever they're needed most. Let us know at bennypointer.com where you leave yours, write your name in the back, and we'll watch where they go over time!

    Plus the e-shoutouts and e-book!

    Come join me in Austin for a day and night of visiting some of Benny's favorite places. We'll have lunch at Opa's, happy hour at Curra's, dinner at Botticelli's, and wrap it all up at One 2 One Bar for some live music, where they held the Bennyfit on December 14th. We'll have a great time, and you'll get to meet a lot of the people who knew and loved Benny.

    This will have to work around our respective schedules. Travel and lodging are not included, but I will cover your meals and entertainment during the visit! We can schedule it as early as September!
