Gina Misiroglu of The Red Room arranged this "marriage" of writer and PawNation assignment to help promote my new book, The Complete Cat's Meow as well as drive more traffic to The Red Room for all of us. Thanks, Gina! And while I'm at it, thanks always to Ivory Madison for creating this wonderful "home" for writers, and to Huntington Sharp for always being there for us, for being so helpful. It's hard to believe that one can find such professionalism, camaraderie and warmth on the internet but The Red Room is all of that and more. I suppose I'd be out of line suggesting a Group Hug.
