Kenneth Sousa is a seasoned author, filmmaker, and disabled war vet who already has a few publications under his belt. His new book, however, is the first written with a much younger audience in mind. Titled Im Bored, the book is about a tired watchdog who makes a break for freedom from his dull life at the doghouse. The book will be exhibited by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2023.

San Diego, California – WEBWIRE

Every days the same. I wake up, the feed me, and then its outside to the fenced in patio where I bake all summer and freeze all winter.

Kenneth Sousa already has a few publications, including one story of animal fiction. His most recent work, simply titled Im Bored, is aimed at younger audiences and will be displayed at the 2023 L.A. Times Festival of Books. The literary festival will take place on April 22-23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA.

Im Bored is told from the perspective of Scampy, a disgruntled, weary watchdog who is sick of his daily life at the doghouse. Its hot during the summer and freezing all winter. The neighborhood cat also vexes him to no end. If its not making a ruckus on his doghouse roof, its taunting him through a fence he cant break through.

It doesnt help that Scampys owners are far from perfect. The only good thing theyve done is give him his usual meals while letting him in the house at night. Twice a year they also take him to a strange man in a white coat who pokes him with all manner of sharp tools.

For Scampy, there is nothing he wouldnt give up to just be free of it all. He longs to chase after cats, dive into trash cans, and live life as a free dog.

But one day, a little accident by a visiting workman gives him just that. Bolting through an open fence door, Scampy finally makes his break and gets the freedom he dreams of.

However, is that what he really finds when he gets out?

One things for sure, Scampys story tells a timely lesson about runaways and how the world outside the home may not be what one bargains for.
