Dearest pals, as you all know we’ve recently lost one of the brightest lights in the anipal community, Louise Hobson. She was a gracious, thoughtful, kind, generous, and all around wonderful lady, and will be greatly missed. It’s a comfort to know she’s over the Rainbow Bridge and reunited with her darling @petiethecat.
Louise asked that instead of sending flowers that donations be made to D’Arcy’s Animal Rescue Center (http://www.darcysarc.ca/). I would like to help that effort along, but since I’m a kitty, I don’t really have any money. But I do have a book!
For those of you who are new to the anipal community may not know that I put together a book about @petiethecat and the first summer we spent at his lake house in Canada. The book is Summer at the Lake with Petie, and is available only at Blurb.com. In honor of Louise, I will donate $1 to D’Arcy’s ARC from every print copy and .50 from each ebook sold by the end of the year.
A few things about books at Blurb. An author has to have a certain amount of profit before Blurb will pay. As Summer at the Lake with Petie sells so few copies, I’ll be pulling the book down at the end of the year so I can collect a final payment and make the donation. Also, I have to admit that the ebook copies didn’t come out great and I couldn’t figure out how to fix them. The book was designed to be the small, square, softcover edition, so that one looks the best.
Please help spread the word so I can sell lots of copies and make a big donation to D’arcy’s Arc. They make great holiday presents, so order lots! Thank you.
