The Concept for a series of books about personal heroes is the brainchild of Barry Spilchuk, a self-help lecturer and author who has been dubbed the Dale Carnegie of Canada. He co-authored a book for the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul® series of inspirational texts which sold an incredible 580,000 copies.
You're My Hero® Books, is an innovative and new inspirational book series in which everyday people write & share stories about their everyday heroes. Co-founded by Barry Spilchuck, Sarah Freeman & Sasha Marusich, You're My Hero® publications celebrate people who inspire, who excite and who educate as a result of their actions. The YMH book series provides a venue for the kinds of stories that almost all of us have, but rarely share beyond our friends and family. Additionally, and just as importantly, YMH books offer a unique and new means of raising funds for causes we hold dear - for our communities, organizations, schools, foundations and charities.
The latest book in the series is truly unique. Produced in partnership with Pinogy Corp, a pet industry service organization, it is devoted to that most selfless of heroes: the dog. Each of the stories selected for publication will be written by owners, family members or by trainers or those directly involved with the events depicted. They are astonishing stories of courage, unconditional love, loyalty, inspiration, sacrifice, sadness and joy.
