"Love Saves The Day" by Author, Gwen Cooper, Order NOW and you could win a visit from Gwen!

Gwen Cooper, the renowned author who brought us  Homer's Odyssey, (which I reviewed here on August 8, 2010), has just released her latest book: LOVE SAVES THE DAY!

Gwen has a special place in my heart.  Little did she know when she contacted me on Twitter back in the summer of 2010 asking if I would be interested in reviewing Homer's Odyssey, I was terrified! The review I did for her was my FIRST book review. I never told her that because I didn't want her to know that I had no clue what I was doing at the time. My review of Homer's Odyssey was the beginning of what is probably the most popular feature on Cat Chat, my book reviews.

I am honored to be one of a number of cat bloggers who were personally asked by Gwen to review her latest book: LOVE SAVES THE DAY! My review will be featured at a later date, but I wanted you to know about an exciting contest that Gwen is conducting right now!

ORDER LOVE SAVES THE DAY BETWEEN NOW AND JANUARY 20th and you could win the GRAND PRIZE, a visit from Gwen! Gwen will come to your home town and lead a book club discussion in a library, at your favorite shelter, at a coffee shop, book store or even in your living room! She will answer all of your questions as well!

SECOND PRIZE: you could win a portrait of your dog, cat, horse or whatever animal, by Sue Hains, an incredibly talented animal portrait artist who did this gorgeous portrait of Homer. She CAN work from photos!

THIRD PRIZE: Autographed copies of LOVE SAVES THE DAY and Homer's Odyssey,  plus one of the original photos of Homer (also autographed) that was used to create the artwork for Homer's Odyssey.

  1. Wow Caren and Cody--you are certainly famous and well connected to have Gwen Cooper give you this scoop! Thanks for sharing. I would do almost anything to have Gwen come to Miami--but it would not be to talk at coffee shop but to my condo association about cats in general! We are on a mission to educate residents about stray cats. Thank you again!

    I can't imagine that Gwen would come to my home town lolol!!! She'd need her wellies and a few shots ;)

  6. I am very glad that you started doing book reviews. Your reviews have helped me find some great books for both me and my children (also pet lovers) to read. I can't wait to order this book and read your upcoming review.

  16. Caren and Cody, what a great contest! Homer's Odyssey I think will be one of the most respected cat "biographies" ever written. It's so nice to think there's a new book out now!

  18. My Human is so utterly uncooperative when it comes to reading material. Honestly, you'd think she didn't even HAVE a cat. Seriously. I need to find her credit cards.

    1. yep it was! I was brand new to blogging at that time. I didn't "sign up" anywhere :) Gwen met me on twitter and liked my writing style and asked if I wanted to review her book. Once I did one, publishers liked them and started mailing me books. I do not get paid for any of my reviews though
