Yes, today starts off the book launch party for my book, Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the World’s Foremost Feline Columnist!
For every copy of my book that you buy from Amazon, my human will donate one dollar to Winging Cat Rescue, a great organization that rescues kitties from the overfilled kill shelters in Georgia, and helps with spay and neutering too! This donation pledge will last from right now until 11:59 P.M. Sunday night, Pacific Time. The links on this page are to Amazon US, but you can get it at Amazon just about anywhere.
Make sure you let us know that you have bought the book, so my human can keep count!
This is the main purpose of my party — to benefit Winging Cat Rescue… and have fun! But I must say, putting together this party has not been easy! For one thing, there was catering to deal with.
I had to taste test hors d’oeuvres too.
Plus I had to get everything together for the party favors and giveaways!
As you know, I am giving away bookmarks to anyone who comments on this post and says they want one — no postage necessary!
These are extra-special bookmarks because on the back, they have some Cat Rules for humans. I bet your humans don’t know some of them! Plus everyone who gets a book will get a personally PAWtographed book plate!
So if you buy my book, this is what I will send you! Only the book plate will be personalized!
Plus I am giving away a Deluxe Cat FURminator to one lucky commenter! All you have to do is add whether you want the FURminator in your comment. At the end of the weekend, I will use random.org to pick a winner! (If I have more than 100 entries, I will narrow it down by batches until I have one winner.)
Okay, now that all that is done, I just need to set up my book area. Picking the right spot is very important!
Here we go!
- Buy a copy of Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the World’s Foremost Feline Columnist on Amazon (any Amazon website), and for each book sold, my human wil donate one dollar to Winging Cat Rescue. All you need to do is tell my human you bought one or more books.
- If you would like to donate to Winging Cat Rescue yourself, there is a Chipin widget on my right sidebar, right next to my Amazon book widget. They always need money to rescue kitties who are on death row at Georgia kill shelters, and even if you can only donate a dollar, it helps!
- Leave a comment on my blog and let me know if you want one of my special bookmarks, and I will send you one!
- If you bought a book, either this weekend or before this weekend, you are also entitled to a PAWtographed book plate, so make sure you mention that!
- Also in your comment, tell me if you would like to be entered in the contest to win the Deluxe FURminator — we have one to give away!
- The party lasts until 11:59 P.M. Sunday night, Pacific Time. After that, comments will be closed.
- Enjoy yourselves! And you are welcome to pass this party post along to any of your kitty-loving friends!
I will let you know the results of the donation pledge, and who won the FURminator, on Tuesday!
