  1. Hi Debbie, it appears we have something in common, we both write and we like cats..would love to be a guess on your blog, have a new release, Best in Show…


    1. Hi! Thanks for your comment. I always enjoy “meeting” fellow writers and cat lovers. If you’d like to send me a guest post, I will feature it when I can fit it in. What type of books do you write? If they are cozy mysteries, I also do Cozy Chats where I interview cozy authors. I could send yo the questions if you would rather do that, but a guest post would be very welcome, too. Let me know, and thanks again for writing.


  2. Hi Debbie. Just came across your blog and I absolutely love it. I recently published a first novel (a cosy with an archaeological twist) featuring libraries and librarians, some recipes and cats. Quite a few cats. It felt good to see your blog celebrating the cosy (or as you guys call it the ‘cozy’) with bonuses for feline content. Awesome.


    1. Thank you. Your book sounds wonderful. Best of luck with it. I am emailing you information regarding my Cozy Chats if you are interested. I appreciate your nice comment and always enjoy hearing from fellow library and cat lovers.


  3. Hey, Debbie! Thank you for featuring my new novel, Clearing in the Woods, on your fabulous blog. Just for the record, I too am a fellow cat lover! So far, I have included a cat in each of my books, but as a minor character. They are just too fabulous not to write about. Best of luck with your series and thanks, again, for featuring my book.


  4. Hi Debbie, Maria and I are so very happy to be included in your blog — and it is the last day of our “Death at Fair Havens” tour, something very special. Now honesty in “felinity” — I used to live with a cat but I’ve been married to a deeply allergic husband for a-lot-of-years so we have been dogs’ servants for a long time (but also finches, turtles, gerbils and newts) All our dogs are tested for kindness to cats (they are rescues and that is a perk of the SPCA) and, though not “Death at Fair Havens” other fiction, poetry and short-stories have cats (usually Maine Coon Cats).
