Eddy The Cat

Hi TCC Friends!  

I want to tell you a little story about my predecessor here at my house - his name was Eddy and he was a gray tabby stray my Mom and Dad adopted.   This was YEARs ago of course - my Mom and Dad were building a new house and brought Eddy out here to the country and he lived "the life" for six years before he went to the Bridge.   Mom and Dad waited almost a year then finally went to the shelter and found ME - I was only a few weeks old and had been found under an old abandoned house.  Lucky me to be adopted though - and off and on all these 14 years I've been with my folks, they've talked about Eddy so he's kind of a hero to me.  This is Eddy hanging out by the pool.


A few years ago my Mom decided to write a mystery novel - yep - she just one day decided since she loved READING mysteries, why not WRITE one too!    She wrote and wrote and when she finished it she found an agent and eventually a publisher and the book was published.  It was going to be the first in a whole series with the same characters but my Mom got sick and her writing pretty much stopped.   ANYWAY, in the book the main character who is a young female private investigator, her best buddy, pal and helper is a cat named Eddy.  That's right - Mom wrote Eddy into the book and when she describes him, she's talking about "her" Eddy........it was her way of honoring him. 

I told you all of this as "backup" to what I REALLY want to tell you which is that my Mom's book is available on Amazon and has been for a couple of years but it's now available in Kindle version AND Mom is having a BIG FAT SALE and offering the book for the whopping amount of NINETY-NINE CENTS for a Kindle download!   If your peeps like mysteries and you like hearing a bedtime story like some of you do, make sure your Mom or Dad orders it while the sale is on.  It runs from October 3 to October 8.    If you click  HERE  it will take you right to Amazon!   Just for your info, the book cover is a painting my Mom did in oils - it's on her studio wall...............just a reminder of Eddy, and her first mystery novel.................


If your peeps read the book - ask them to do a review on Amazon for Mom!   She'd like that and you know how much we like keeping our Moms happy!!   Thanks TCC friends...........


Hugs, Sammy

Oh Sammy it is so great to have the background for her book. Dad actually has started it and really likes it so far. He reads to us and we rotate through a few books at a time. Wow you Mom is talented and hope she will write some more.
