Catwoods the Book is on Katzenworld Today!

We are happy to say that my book Catwoods, Stories and Studies of Our Feline Companions, is on Katzenworld today. It’s presented by Oliver the Maker of Mischief! Thank you Oliver and Katzenworld!

Life With Cats Becomes a Book

Uh, since I wrote that post the publisher has changed things, so now the fastest way for those in the US to get the book is at this link: Borgo Publishing Catwoods page. Outside the US, please email easty@ernestandhadley.com to make arrangements.

    Congratulations, Leah! So exciting to hear about your good news with the book — terrific!

    Sorry I’ve been tardy in visiting here & commenting. Such a crazy world ours has become; I don’t know what to think of it. I hope you, your husband & Franklin are all safe & staying away from the virus going around. We’ve been in Michigan & may go up there again soon to get away from so many people. Who knows what to do anymore?

    Anyway, I’ll keep this short. But again, it’s so great to hear that your book is doing well (as it should!). Best wishes to you & yours, Deb

      Deb, no worries about timing at all! We are being very careful, with minimal social contact, precautions in the grocery store, etc – we had done that since flu season started last fall as even regular flu would be tough on us with our age and medical conditions. But, I was growing weary of isolation and really wanted to get out more this spring, and then … We do understand how serious this is, and will keep on with increased precautions. Sounds like the Michigan wilderness would be a good place to be.
      Deb, while I’ve been heartened at the many nice things friends and even some people I don’t know have said about the book, and it was really a labor of love, it isn’t doing well as far as sales go. There was an initial burst and then a big slump. I don’t know anything about marketing, can’t do book signings often (all are cancelled now anyhow) and it’s really hard to get reviews. I really need it to be a success as we have more cats to care for now, I just haven’t gotten around to posting about them. I may join Instagram to try to get the word out when we make more space for pictures on the machine.
      Speaking of reviews I got a start on doing some and I want to review your A Binary Heart, and place that on Amazon and Goodreads. I can’t promise it will be soon though as I am about a year behind. I did recently post 3 that I’d been working on a long ole time. Then I started feeling addle-pated again. Hoping that will change. Cheers and purrs to you and yours, Leah

        Leah, so glad to hear that you all are keeping safe. These are strange days we live in, that’s for sure. We’re in Michigan, where it’s cold, but I can see the ground greening up, and that’s nice since I’m usually not here to witness that. Say, re: your book. I hear you about sales. I would be happy to tweet about your book. In fact, before I left Indiana I took a couple of quick pics of the copy I have so I can use it when tweeting — if that’s all right with you!?!?!? I have, as of tonight, 1,231 followers, most of whom are writers/readers. Are you on Twitter? Where should I send them to buy the book, Amazon? Or is there a better place? Sorry I’m just responding here — I keep forgetting about my darn WP app; comments used to come into me via email, so I was sure to get them. Now, I have to check, and I’m often remiss about doing that. Anyway, stay safe! And I’ll happily tweet out your book!

          Hi Deb, I’m glad you are in Michigan, it somehow seems remote, and therefore, nice and safe! Also glad that you are witnessing spring. It’s busting out all over here, wisteria going crazy, violets, dandelions; but the warmth combined with cold fronts moving in also means turbulent weather.
          I would love for you to tweet about my book! Thank you so much for offering! I’m not on twitter, though I have thought about joining other websites. But keeping up with wordpress alone is getting challenging for me. Amazon is fine and it’s the link I believe most people are comfortable with. My book is still listed there along with an author page. However, it only leads to Borgo Publishing as a third party seller, the book’s no longer sold through Amazon. That’s a change the publisher made that I am not able to do anything about. So it can be ordered direct from the Borgo Catwoods page and AFAIK they get things out fast, they are a small and responsible company; the link is this: https://www.borgopublishing.com/product-page/catwoods-volume-1?fbclid=IwAR2QNrc4Nc-NxWGbNzvEnAJJfqBTra-5Zzyq7k3rx0ebz6g5n2V66xcxYAQ, and the book is also available at their Ernest and Hadley Booksellers online site. Both links are on the next post up, the one that says free shipping until the end of March. Both publisher sites are offering that and it should be available on Amazon too since that will lead back to Borgo.
          Cheers and hopes for better times!
          Leah

    That’s great. I started on the book and then things have gotten so busy I haven’t had a chance to get back to it.

      Tim thank you so much for getting my book, I appreciate it! No worries, I just hope you enjoy whenever there’s time. I know what you mean about being busy, I don’t have much reading time these days either.

        Part of the problem is I have too many things to read. I have a couple of research papers I working on that I’ve submitted them to converences.

          It’s good to stay involved in research. I enjoyed doing it for the two books but am too pressed to continue any in depth now. And, I have a pile of books to read and scarce quality reading time.

            I hear you on that. After a few slow years at the office we are now really busy. We need more staff, but there are no qualified applicants to be found. They moved out of the state during the slow years. So I’m having to do a lot of work I would have someone else do if I could.
