Sales of both my books and calendar are really slow! And I would love to sell as many as I can, especially because portions of the purchase price go to benefit animals in need! I know that everybody is hitting up all of you with calendars, donations pledges and such this season, but I think that 1) my causes are really worthy, and 2) my books and calendar make totally pawsome gifts! Even if you already have one or both Dear Sparkle books, they make great stocking stuffers for other cats or cat lovers in your circle, and I still have a bunch of calendars here that I can personally pawtograph for you! So as the holiday shopping season starts to wind down, I just wanted to remind you about them.
One dollar from the sale of each copy of my award-winning book, Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice From the World’s Foremost Feline Columnist, or my first (also award-winning) book, Dear Sparkle: Advice From One Cat to Another, will go to PurrEver Ranch, the Somerville, TN sanctuary that cares for kitties no one else wanted — seniors and abused and abandoned cats. The really great news is that I now have access to the Bookscan sales figures of my books, so I can get a more accurate count on how much to donate, no matter where you buy the books! They make great, inexpensive gifts for the holidays, or any festive occasion!
I also have a donation widget for PurrEver Ranch in my righthand sidebar, if you would like to donate to them directly. It is also looking a little lonely right now!
One dollar from each copy sold of my 2011 Wall Calendar still goes to Rikki’s Refuge! Rikki’s Refuge is an all-species, no-kill sanctuary that takes care of many special needs creatures. And as you may have read a couple of weeks ago, because of a slip-up of my human’s, we wound up with a bunch of copies of the calendar here and we are hoping to sell them before the end of the year. They are 17.99, plus $5.00 priority shipping and handling for U.S. delivery and $13.00 for international delivery. (California residents have to pay 9.25% sales tax.) If you are in the U.S. and order by Tuesday night or Wednesday before noon Pacific Time, my human can get your calendar out to you in time for Christmas — personally pawtographed by me! You can order the calendar below:
