Emma's Kitty Corner: Sneaky from Debbie De Louise's Cobble Cove Cozy Mystery Series!
This is Emma here, your feline host and goddess. Surely you've heard of me before. I thought it might be fun to have some more kitty guests on this blog, which I'm, of course, stealing away from my favored human now and then. Today, we have a special, purrfect treat...a cat character who has come to inform us about his author, some of the other characters from the book he is featured in, as well as a few upcoming events. Sneaky, take it away!
Meow, there. My name is Sneaky, and I’m the library cat character A.K.A the feline star of the Cobble Cove mystery series. I also have my own blog where I interview fellow pet characters and author’s pets. I am honored to be featured on Marie Lavender’s blog. I’ve had such fun cat chatting with several of her real life and character cats. It’s always fun to discover fellow cat lovers who are also authors, and often the two go together. The same can be said for book lovers and librarians, which is my author’s profession.
I told Debbie that I would mention her end of summer cat naming contest in this guest post. She’s had some entries so far, but she’d love to spread the word to give everyone a chance to win an Amazon gift card and their cat’s name in the next book of our series. To enter, all you need to do is send her the name and description of a female cat. It can even be your own cat’s name. You also have to be a subscriber to her newsletter. Even if you don’t win the cat contest, by being a subscriber, you will have an opportunity to win one of her other monthly contests and read her author mews. You can subscribe at her website: https://debbiedelouise.com , or send your email address to her at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she’ll be happy to subscribe you. You can send the cat’s name and description to that email address, too.
Besides the contest, I have a few other matters to cat chat with you about. I want to fill you in on what’s going on in Cobble Cove, that quaint little town that seems to attract mysteries for my human co-star, Alicia, to solve. If you’ve read any of the Cobble Cove books, you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t, check them out on Debbie’s Amazon author page. Her latest, Written in Stone, published in April, even has my image on the cover. Debbie is planning to start my fourth adventure this fall and that’s why she is sponsoring the cat naming contest. Without giving too much of the plot away of the new book, let’s just say that another kitty will be arriving in Cobble Cove. Of course, there will be a new mystery, and I’ve heard some rumors (and seen Debbie jotting in her notebook) that Sheila, the director of the Cobble Cove library, may be involved. This is not the first time Sheila’s been involved in a mystery. In our first book, A Stone’s Throw, she also played a large role.
One other thing I should mention about the characters in the Cobble Cove mysteries is that they each take a turn hosting a monthly Facebook chat.
As part of this group, they share excerpts of their scenes from the books, answer questions from members, and even offer a contest for prizes. The August host is Ron Ramsay, the Long Island cop in our first book who becomes sheriff in our second book, Between a Rock and a Hard Place. I’ve also been a host, and I hope I will host again one day. Hosts are chosen by group vote. To join the group, apply at https://www.facebook.com/groups/748912598599469/.
There’s one more thing I need to mention before I take my daily cat nap. Debbie writes stories as well as books, and she will be publishing a romance and a mystery on August 22nd. Saving Snow White and Dying for a Vacation will be available as 99 cent eBooks from Amazon.
She will also be offering her historical paranormal romance, The Seashell and the Stone, for free on Friday, August 18th.
All her stories, like her books, feature at least one cat, and these three are no exception.
Thank you, Marie, for allowing me to cat chat on your blog, and have a mice day. That sunny bay window in the library’s children’s room beckons, so I am pawing off for meow.
No problem! You have it right, Sneaky. Of course a book would feature a cat! Why wouldn't humans want to worship us as well as possible? As I've said before, I'm as good as royalty here and I will rule over the universe one day.
Plus, I can't blame you for recuperating from your numerous ordeals over there in the window. It must be difficult to be a cat sleuth.
Happy upcoming new releases to your author human!
And don't forget to check out the limited time offer of Debbie's freebie of The Seashell and the Stone on Friday, everyone! :)
Anyway, to our feline guest, thank you for visiting us here at Marie's blog. That's a nice fur coat you have there, and your story was rather entertaining! We hope you'll come back sometime, Sneaky.
For the rest of you humans, I'm signing off... meow, meow, meow, et cetera, et cetera.
Ruler of the Universe and Supreme Feline,
Emma A.K.A 'the Munchkin' Mulrooney
