My Cat Hermione Needs Your Votes in America’s Favorite Pet Contest

For those of you who haven’t seen my Facebook posts, Hermione made the semi-finals of America’s Favorite Pet Contest. I can’t thank enough all the people who have been voting every day and who have generously purchased PAWS votes to help her move ahead and also to raise funds for the PAWS Foundation to help pets.
The competition is tough, and we still need your votes to get to the next and final round which ends Thursday night, March 31. Please keep voting each day with free votes and/or PAWS votes. Keep an eye out for double PAWS votes which count for twice the votes and go twice as far to help pets.

Thank you so much, and big purrs from Hermione. She’s a very sweet and beautiful girl, and I’d love to see her win. Please vote for Hermione here if you agree: https://americasfavpet.com/2022/hermione-cf74

Mid-March Updates, W.I.P’s, and More

I hope you’re all doing well and looking forward to spring. I know I am. Although the weather’s been back and forth this month so far, it should settle into a steadier pattern soon. Don’t forget to turn your clocks forward this Sunday for Daylight Savings Time if you’re in an area that observes it.

I wanted to post some updates about my writing. Unfortunately, I don’t yet have a cover for the first book of my new cozy series, The Case of the Cat Crazy Lady, and I’m also still waiting for edits to start. However, during my wait, I’ve completed another standalone novel that I’m editing and will submit to an agent or publisher soon. It’s too early for me to share any details except that it involves time travel.

I’m also reprinting my cat book, Pet Posts: the Cat Chats, with a new cover and title. This book will also be published in hardcover, large print, paperback, audio, and eBook with wide distribution. In addition, I’m about to begin work on another Cobble Cove story, tentatively titled Sneaky’s Supernatural Mystery. I’m considering using this as the main story in a print collection of the previous five stories (the collection will also be available as eBooks and free on Kindle Unlimited), but I know some readers still prefer print and have asked for these stories in that format.

Talking about collections, I’ve also submitted a poem and an essay to Red Penguin Books for their Ukraine fundraiser, Where Flowers Bloom: Poems and Essays of Strength, Hope, and Resilience. They are still seeking stories until March 25 and also have a Kickstarter campaign. For details, see https://redpenguinbooks.com/ukraine/

I’ll also be writing something for the first Long Island Authors Group anthology.

In April, I’m planning an Easter giveaway. More on that in my April newsletter. To subscribe, complete the pop-up form at https://debbiedelouise.com, or send me your email.

Lastly, I’d like to ask a favor. If you’re on Facebook, could you please vote for my cat Hermione, who is running in America’s Favorite Pet Contest? She’s already passed through two rounds but needs votes to get into the quarter finals on March 17. You can vote every day for free and/or purchase PAWS votes that raise funds for the PAWS Foundation that helps animals. PAWS votes sometimes count double for a short time, as indicated on the voting page. I would also appreciate any shares of her campaign link: https://americasfavpet.com/2022/hermione-cf74
