Blind Cat Rescue/Donation Contest! You Could WIN a Visit from New York Times bestselling author Gwen Cooper!!

It is an honor to be presenting to you today, an incredible contest from author Gwen Cooper,  New York Times bestselling author of the memoirs Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat  (and many more!!).

Gwen and her books are extremely sentimental to me, because way back in 2010 Gwen contacted me to do a book review for her, "Homer's Odyssey" which was the FIRST book I had ever reviewed, not only on the blog, but in my LIFE!  Since then I have reviewed all of her books and have deeply loved each and every one of them, as I know that MANY of you have  as well!

Today, I am proud to announce a special contest WHERE YOU COULD WIN A VISIT FROM GWEN COOPER!!! THAT'S RIGHT!! YOU COULD WIN A VISIT FROM GWEN!! (I would die!!!!) The contest is being conducted by Gwen to help kick off  her NEWEST BOOK which was "collected from the "Curl Up With A Cat Tale Series":

MY LIFE IN A CAT HOUSE comes out on October 30th, and Gwen is  donating 100% of her royalties on all pre-orders and first-week sales (through November 4th) to Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary in Raleigh, NC.  This contest was planned BEFORE Hurricane Florence, but now, with the damage that has been caused by Florence, the kitties at Blind Cat Rescue need this help even more!!!

PRE-ORDER THIS BOOK
AT YOUR LOCAL BOOK STORE!

Because if you do, 
YOU COULD WIN A VISIT
 FROM GWEN COOPER!!

WHAT YOU MUST DO
 IN ORDER FOR YOUR DONATION
AND CONTEST ENTRY TO COUNT!!

When you  pre-order the book from  your local bookstore,
 you have  to actually go to the store and purchase
 the pre-ordered copy or copies 
between October 30th and November 4th.

IMPORTANT!!! 

 If you pre-order but don't buy the book, 
and the bookstore has to ship their copy back,
 Gwen is  charged for that out of her royalties,
 and it will take money away from
 the Blind Cat Rescue donation!!!
 You do NOT want that to happen!! 




When you have pre-ordered:

Email Gwen at:
 with your name, your city/state,
 the name of the bookstore you pre-ordered the book from,
 and the number of copies you pre-ordered.

  Each pre-ordered copy counts as an entry
 so if you buy two you double your chance of winning! 
 And, of course, the more people who pre-order in the same town, the likelier that the winner will be in your town--so get your friends to pre-order, too! 



 Online pre-orders from Amazon, etc. will not count for contest entry unless you pre-ordered online September 16th or earlier.  Gwen will, however, make the same 100% donation to Blind Cat Rescue regardless of where the book was ordered/sold!!

ALSO:anybody who pre-ordered the book online BEFORE TODAY (9/17) can also enter to win! Just forward your pre-order email confirmation to Gwen at
gwen@gwencooper.com

WAIT!! THERE IS MORE!!


Gwen is looking for a SMALL group of people to help  her in rallying pre-orders/donations to Blind Cat Rescue.  This SMALL group of people will get her private email address and home phone number (as you will be in touch with her quite a bit), and whichever one rallies the largest number of pre-orders in their area will also get a personal visit from Gwen.  Anybody who's interested in being a part of this (small!) group of Homer's Heroes can contact Gwen at gwen@gwencooper.com

Full Disclosure: I was not compensated for posting this contest. As I mentioned I have reviewed all of Gwen's books, I ADORE Gwen and her writing and if I were lucky enough to meet her in person, I would be a total "fan girl"!!

  4. Thank you for the lovely comment on our precious little Diva.
    She gave Diva a new meaning. Each time I see a sun puddle or a box I'll smile. She gave me so much joy and I'm pretty sure she'd be royally UPSET if I quit blogging so I will be back ...and who knows an Angelic Diva will probably fly every so often too.
    Hugs and Proud to have been Mom of Madi

  5. I read Homer's Odyssey years ago. It was one of the books that inspired me to write about Chris. I would be interested in reading her new book but I prefer to buy it on kindle nowadays so I doubt I will be at a book store.

  9. Seeing Gwen Cooper talk at BlogPaws (2016) was hands down the best session of the three years I've gone. I learned so much and it was exactly what I needed at the time! And this book is for a great cause! How could one turn down the opportunity?
