GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. WINNERS ANNOUNCED IN SATURDAY, SEP. 7'S POST!
Please note qualification changes!
It's finally here! My first book, whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds's official release date is this Tuesday, September 3! Amazon's been filling orders for two weeks, so some readers have already received theirs, but it will be available at other retailers this Tuesday!
The book, whiskerslist, (yes, it's all lowercase) is a parody of craigslist (yes, it's all lowercase ... get it?). It's nearly 200 posts that cats may write for a craigslist-type site. These frisky, freewheeling felines are looking for dates and hookups. They want to buy and sell crappy toys and rent sink space. They're offering classes in hairball crafting and even looking for comrades to help them crash the Westminster Dog Show.
I'll be visiting some bookstores, cat shows and radio programs for signings, interviews and readings. Here's a list of what's to come (so far). I hope you'll come out and say hi and help spread the word to anyone you know that lives in one of those areas!
Please note: the book is PG-13ish. It's not really a young kids' book. Like craigslist, some of the material is a little racy, but it's not offensive ... at least I don't think so.
We've already gotten some really positive reviews on Amazon, and Jackson Galaxy (My Cat from Hell and Cat Daddy), Francesco Marciuliano (I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems By Cats) and Yasmine Surovec (Cat vs. Human) all gave fantastic advance praise! I'm so grateful!
Oh, and now there's a whiskerslist site! Your cat can actually create postings and comment on other cats' posts. There are some really funny ones so far!
And don't forget to like whiskerslist on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Would you like to win a copy? We're giving away a copy of whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds to three lucky Catladyland readers!
