Avalon | COVER REVEAL

cover reveal

You guys! I have a new book coming out in June!

It's the book many of you have long been waiting for: the heartwarming true story of my Turkish Van cat Avalon

The book will detail how Avalon became a movie star, how he used special techniques to throw my dates out of the house, how he spoke a few words of French (I swear this is true), how he made a hobby out of vomiting on my guinea pig's head, and so much more.

But, most of all, Avalon is a love story. Because no matter how much of a star he was, what made his life truly special was the intense bond we shared together. Some cats may need nine lives to make a difference, but Avalon only needed one.

Here's a peek at the cover. The book comes out on June 4th, 2015. 

Pre-order it now!

I'll have a book tour in June and July, too, so I hope we'll get to celebrate together soon.

Let me know what you think of the cover in the comments or on Twitter using @eeriestories.

Meanwhile, follow me on Amazon to receive updates!

    1. I adopted Romero in December last year. I wasn't 'ready' for a new cat, but I wanted to save an abandoned kitty that couldn't find a new home. I'm glad I did.
