I'm so excited about this story I can hardly stand it. This is the first thing I've written in 4 years, since my husband Michael won his battle with RA; it's the first sweet romance I've ever written, and it's my first published-straight to e-book story.
If that's not enough firsts for you here's a couple more. This is the first Christmas story I've written, and it's the first time I've written a story with a cat as one of the main characters.
I love cats so that was great fun for me. I love cats so much (and dogs, too) that I'm donating 15% of the proceeds from The Cat Before Christmas until January 31, 2011 to the Kansas City Humane Society and Wayside Waifs, two no-kill shelters in the Kansas City, Missouri metro area.
I posted the cover in Coffee Time albums. I'll post it here if I can figure out how to do it. (HTML is not my friend.) In the meantime here's the blurb:
Wiki the cat loves Christmas. Batting the ornaments, basking in the blinking lights -- he even helps choose the tree each year!
But this year there's trouble in Wiki's yuletide paradise when his mistress Cary decides to go skiing in Colorado instead of staying sung at home with him in Kansas City, Missouri.To derail her plans, Wiki escapes to the Christmas tree lot where he's sure Cary will find him.
He doesn't count on a blizzard or a huge German shepherd with a handsome and stubborn master named Ben. All three conspire to trap Wiki on the lot. For his own good, of course.
Cary is frantic, searching everywhere for Wiki -- everywhere except the Christmas tree lot where Wiki waits to be saved, and Zeus' master waits to sweep Cary off her feet.
Can Wiki escape and get home to Cary in time to save Christmas?
I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
The Cat Before Christmas is available on Amazon Kindle.
