I was really stumped over what to do for Mr. Puddy’s cool meme. It wasn’t that I couldn’t come up with anything. Au contraire — I had too many things I could think of! But then she really annoyed me and I came up with a new doozy.
The week had a few ups. I did have that Innova coupon drawing (Mario, Catbyte and Lee Steele, keep an eye out for an email from my human). And we were able to donate $15 to Kitten Rescue from Wednesday’s book signing. So I was thinking that maybe I’d get a Cat Appreciation Day after all. But nooooo! My human has decided to take off today and fly to some stupid show in the Midwest that her boyfriend is playing — all because it is her birthday! Hello! I did not get my birthday off! Granted, it involved opening up a bunch of presents and playing with toys, but I had to pose with them! Now she is going to stick me and the other cats with the sleepover pet sitter. This deed must not go unpunished, I thought. I wondered what I should do.
And then it hit me. I just needed to wait for her to go to bed.
Just because I let her do all the behind the scenes work, it does not mean I don’t know how to get into the Kindle Publishing account.
There is the Kindle version of my book…
I just need to edit one little thing.
Ha! I’ve just switched the price of my book on Kindle from $5.99 to just 99 cents! And the UK and German sites have been automatically switched over too.
It is going to take a little while before the changed pricing shows up, but I can safely say that by the time my human is in the air, Dear Sparkle on Kindle will be on sale! And she won’t be any the wiser! Won’t she be surprised when she finds out! I imagine that by sometime on Sunday, she will have changed it back to the regular price, but in the meantime, spread the word to all your Kindle-using friends: for the weekend you can have my book for less than a dollar! In fact, you don’t even need a Kindle — you can download an app to your PC, Mac, iPad or smart phone and still be able to read it for just 99 cents. In fact, it looks even better on most of these devices because the photos will be full color instead of Kindle device grayscale!
So don’t wait — my human could find out what I’ve done any time! Download your 99 cent copy of Dear Sparkle today!
Wow Sparkle, that is amazing! You are one talented kitty…and devious…but so nice of you to put your book on sale! Unfortunately, we don’t have any of those devices:(
Ha ha ha! Hit ‘er in the pocketbook, Sparkle. The Humans get soooooo touchy about their green papers!
You don’t get a day off on your birthday because you have the burden of being a star.
Devoted to Willow says
A secret sale on your Kindle Book is the perfect revenge for this slight. She should have known how crafty you were and celebrated with the appropriate number of treats. Hope your human had a Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday to your human! We ordered your book on our mom’s Kindle. We can’t wait for her to read it to us. Yay!
The Island Cats says
That’s a good one, Sparkle!
That’ll teach her! Happy Birthday to her!!!
Toby & Leia says
Happy B Day to your Mom. We luff what you did there – very clever. 🙂
caren gittleman says
Happy, Happy Birthday to your mommy!!!! Great job Sparkle!
Athena M says
Sparkle, I meant to say I can turn the monitor’s screen upside down just by sitting on the keyboard. Happy Birthday to your human!
Fraidy Cats! says
you are devious, Sparkle! What a cool trick to play on your mom-person :). Well, we do hope she has a nice birthday and trip anyway.
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, and HOllie
How very very clever of you, Sparkle. And you definitely do look peeved in that first picture.
YOU are so clever and guess what we loaded it onto our iPad!
Yay for you and super yay for us!
Daisy the Curly Cat says
A very devious, clever and wonderful plan, Sparkle! I hope your mom has a happy birthday!
Athena M says
Sparkle, I’m a tech support kitty and my human didn’t even know she had auto response to her email until I opened it by walking across the keyboard. And I can turn the screen on the monitor upside down just by sitting on it. It took my human twenty minutes to figure out how to turn it upright. What I can accomplish by merely sitting on my rear end took her twenty minutes! Thanks for sale! And I think the best birthday present of all for humans is having great cats every year of their lives!
Happy Birthday to the Sparkle Human!!!
You look hard at work there, Sparkle!
The Poupounette Gang says
It’s still 6.87 Euros on the amazon.fr site where we ordered ours last week. More treats for you, Sparkle!
HAhaha! MOL!!!! IÂ´m laughing…
U clever kitty Sparkle! Happy birthday to your mom. Hope the show is good 🙂
Fuzzy and Zoe says
We love your devious ways, Miss Sparkle! And our mom likes your Human more and more every day. She already is in awe of the fact that your Human dates a hairband guitarist. Now she finds out that your Human, too, is a July birthday baby (our mom’s birthday was the 17th). And you also get abandoned so your Human can go watch guys with long hair make a lot of noise. *sigh* Well, Happy birthday to your Human anyway from all of us!
Well won’t she be surprised! That’ll teach her to leave you alone and go off and celebrate her birthday in the Midwest!
Our mommy appreciated your comments on our blog today! Your a tough act to follow Sparkle so it made her day!
Pricilla - Famous SpokesGoat says
You are an evil kitty today Sparkle.
Does anyone know if you download it to the PC can you then get it on to a nook?
The publicist is old and creaky and can’t sit at the computer for long periods of time.
The Nook uses a different formatting than the Kindle and Kindle Apps do – don’t worry, eventually my human will get the book Nook-ready.
Sparkle, I followed your link to the Amazon page and I noticed it said “includes free wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet “. Shouldn’t that be “Whiskernet”? 😉
That is a great way to get back at her Sparkle! Good for you!
Cathy Keisha says
We’re having trouble setting up that Kindle account b/c TW is such a loser. I love the way you think and act. If I’d known you before I’d gotten online, TW would’ve sworn that the learned everything I know from you. But, alas, I didn’t and I’m an original.
I think that is so smart Sparkle, and she might never know!
Kjelle Bus says
Can imagine how surrprized your mom will be 🙂
That was well done Sparkle, you accomplished two things all at once. That is a good deal on the book. We already have the real book and it is terrific.
A big Happy Birthday to the Mom. Hope she has a wonderful time on her trip. Take care.
Raymond and Busby says
Happy birthday to your Mom! Good job getting her back, Sparkle!
Fui, Suey and Lishy says
Hahaha! Nice trick, Sparkle.
The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie says
You’re really smart!! What a clever way to get even with your human!!!!

Mark's Mews says

Hannah and Lucy says
Well done Sparkle – that will show your mom what happens when she leaves you all alone eben if it is her birthday.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Good going Sparkle. You are a good marketer.
Max the Quilt Cat says
Good job Sparkle… What a great price for a great book.
The Monkeys says
We’ll definitely have to get our Mom off her butt to finally get your book! Great revenge, Sparkle!
Mr Puddy says
OMC !!! Sparkle !
This is a kind of cool pay back ! You are so smart !!!! I love it ; )
and thank you to play with me.
Ps : I will tweet and share FB straight away !

Thanks! Oh, I might also mention here that not only can you get my book for 99 cents, there are a bunch of other books you can download for 99 cents too – and some public domain books that you can even get for free! So even if you never want to have a Kindle, it’s actually a good idea to have the app on whatever computer or device you prefer!
Oliver and Ruby says
If only we had a Kindle!
If you have a PC or a Mac, you can get the app for free on Amazon and read it on your computer!
Oh Sparkle you are wicked! I’ve asked Mummy if she can get this for us to read but she said she doesn’t know how to download it! Mummy is usually good at these thing but I think her brain is tired today. Could you let her know how? xxx
Fuzzy Tales says
That’s a great deal you’re offering, Sparkle!
A very happy birthday to your mom! We’re sorry it means you’re being abandoned, though. Seems she should spend her birthday with you, don’t you think? After all, surely you’re the most important purrson in her life!
Hmm, can I get your pawtograph on my copy?
I have been looking into this: http://idolvine.com/
