CAT LIFE Honored by Cat Writers Association: On Sale Now in Countdown Deal!

Cat Life On Sale Now! — Yep, I’m celebrating that my book CAT LIFE has been honored with a Certificate of Excellence Award from the Cat Writers’ Association. Yee-haw! To celebrate the honor, I’ve put CAT LIFE Kindle version on sale at Amazon in a “countdown deal.”

The KINDLE version’s usual price is $9.99 so I’m discounting the book as follows–the earlier you catch the deal, the more you save, starting at $1.99 for an 81% discount. Each day the price goes up a bit, so this deal runs Sunday until Friday, August 14 and goes up to full price the next day.

The schedule’s below–and you’ll also find the “ticking countdown” on the book page here:

Of course, if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, you can read the book there at any time. *s* 

Cat Life: The History, Culture & Love of the Cat

This is the first time I’ve published with full-color interior photographs. I wanted this cat gift book to be beautiful, as well as provide fun insight into the kitties that share our lives. The pictures, though, make the book file so large, that I could only upload an Ebook version in “print replica” on Kindle. 

The book is divided into four parts that explore the evolution and history of cats; the feline influence on our culture from paintings and media to literature and more; basic anatomy and cat care concerns; and finally, a gallery of breeds to celebrate the many gorgeous pedigreed cats. You can get a taste of the book in this trailer–and the music is from STRAYS, THE MUSICAL.

HIT AND RUN–VOTE NOW for Name That Dog & Name That Cat Contest for New Thriller

NOMINATIONS & VOTING CLOSED: As of April 19, there are 158 cat names and 172 dog names nominated, woot!

Avoid copyright infringement by getting permission from authors.

Those who have followed the September & Shadow pet-centric thriller series know that with each book I’ve held a contest to NAME THAT DOG and NAME THAT CAT character in the stories. In fact, the winning canine or feline not only gets named but often the pet’s foibles are incorporated in the story.

HIT AND RUN, Name That Pet!

Now it’s your turn to NAME THAT DOG and NAME THAT CAT!

A dog trainer with hidden secrets. A dead body with the keys to the past. Sniffing out the truth could get them all killed.

I sent out my Pet Peeves newsletter announcing this to my subscribers (they will always get the news first! have YOU subscribed yet?). I’ve already received more than 330 suggestions (some folks submitted many names) but always share on my blog, too.

A message from the grave propels September on a mission to answer shocking questions about her past. But one by one, her sources die before she can reach them. Now death stalks September to silence her as well. Can Shadow thwart the killer? Will Macy-Cat sniff out the key to unmask a decades-old horror?

For those who have NOT read my thrillers, rest assured that I hate stories where animals are killed for shock value. While my books are suspenseful and thrilling, that is a line I don’t ever cross.

WILL YOUR PET STAR IN “HIT AND RUN?”

There were so many brilliant suggestions and names, MANY with gorgeous photos plus moving “gotcha-day” or other stories, that y’all inspired me to add a couple more pet heroes to the story. I’ll probably be sharing some of those pictures and stories in future newsletters–you won’t want to miss that! So instead of one dog and one cat, there will be TWO of each.

Ready…Set…VOTE!

The winning names not only will be included in the book, but your name and real pet’s description will be added to the “fact or fiction” acknowledgments in the book, and I’ll send you a paw-tographed physical copy of the book as soon as it comes out.

The top two names in each poll will win the contest. You can vote as many times as you wish, and share the poll with your friends.

NAME THAT CAT (TWO NAMES)

Both cats are PROBABLY Maine Coons, as s/he belongs to Macy-Cat’s breeder. However, often professional catteries also have non-pedigreed kitty companions, too, so I’m open.

One cat has bonded with a young girl “helper” at the cattery. The girl runs, with the cat, when confronted by the killer. The other cat has bonded with the breeder and protects her from all perceived threats–human or canine.

NAME THAT DOG (Two NAMES)

One dog any age, any breed, any size. This mysterious dog appears out of a snowstorm. The dog probably belongs to a local farmer. The same young girl mentioned above runs from the killer and gets run off the road and trapped in her car. The dog climbs through the broken car window to keep the driver warm, and later, blocks a police car passing on the road to alert to the accident.

The second dog, any age, any breed, any size, ends up with Theodore “Teddy” Williams (from previous books). I’m still not sure his dog fits into the story so the inspiration will come from which dog wins the contest.
