Exciting News from Author Gwen Cooper

Last week I had the exciting opportunity to chat on the phone with Gwen Cooper, author of Homer's Odyssey, Homer: The Ninth Life of a Blind Wonder Cat, Love Saves the Day, and the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series. Gwen asked us to share some exciting news about her brand new release, My Life in a Cat House.

Here's what you need to know, straight from Gwen!



MY LIFE IN A CAT HOUSE comes out on October 30th, and I'm donating 100% of my royalties on all pre-orders and first-week sales (through November 4th) to Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary in Raleigh, NC. Also, if you pre-order a copy of the book from your local bookstore (including chain bookstores, like B&N), you can enter to win a visit from me! Just email me at gwen@gwencooper.com with your name, your city/state, the name of the bookstore you pre-ordered the book from, and the number of copies you pre-ordered. Each pre-ordered copy counts as an entry, so if you buy two you double your chance of winning! And, of course, the more people who pre-order in the same town, the likelier that the winner will be in that town--so call your local bookstore TODAY, and get your friends to pre-order, too!

Online pre-orders from Amazon, etc. will not count for contest entry unless you pre-ordered online September 16th or earlier. I will, however, make the same 100% donation to Blind Cat Rescue regardless of where the book was ordered/sold.

Please take note -- for your donation and contest entry to count -- if you pre-order the book from your local bookstore, you then must actually go to the store and purchase your pre-ordered copy or copies between October 30th and November 4th. If you pre-order but don't buy and the bookstore has to ship their copy back, I will get charged for that out of my royalties, and it will take money away from the Blind Cat Rescue donation.

I'm also looking for a SMALL group of people to help me out in rallying pre-orders/donations to BCR. This SMALL group of people will get my private email address and home phone number (as we'll be in touch quite a bit), and whichever one rallies the largest number of pre-orders in their area will also get a personal visit from me. Anybody who's interested in being a part of this (small) group of Homer's Heroes can contact me at gwen@gwencooper.com. :)

Seeing Gwen Cooper talk at BlogPaws (2016) was hands down the best session of the three years I've gone. I learned so much and it was exactly what I needed at the time!
