As an author, you don’t get to choose the cover of your book. That’s the publisher’s job. 

I knew, given the wonderful cover that my publisher designed for Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy, that they would come up with something beautiful for my next book.

But I didn’t realize quite how amazing it would be until I saw it. That's why I'm so excited about today's cover reveal. 

Isn’t it gorgeous?!! And isn't that the most beautiful cat?!!

I am over the moon with the cover of Purr: The Science of Making Your Cat Happy. I honestly could not love it more! Thank you to Belle Wuthrich of Greystone Books for this stunning cover.

I’m also thrilled and honoured that Purr has a foreword by Pam Johnson-Bennett. She says it is,

“An in-depth, yet very accessible tour of what cats need physically, environmentally, and also emotionally. This is where science meets heart.”

I’m pleased to say that Purr: The Science of Making Your Cat Happy is available for pre-order now from all your favourite bookstores. It will be published on 3rd May 2022. 

Pre-orders really help authors. They let bookstores know that people are interested in the book, and so they know to order it in. This in turn helps publishers know how many copies of the book to print. If a publisher sees lots of pre-orders come in, it helps them feel confident about the book and they may even do more marketing. 

Pre-orders show there is excitement about the book, and can also help to get media buzz, so they make a big difference.

Supply chain issues are a big deal in publishing right now, just like for everything else, so it seems like a wise move to pre-order if you want a copy. You typically don't pay for a pre-order until the book arrives or ships.

If you’d like to pre-order and be one of the first to get this book, you can do so at your local bookstore or from the following links:

Black Bond Books Signed copies will be available from the Maple Ridge store if you order from this link—and you can get signed copies of Wag from them with this link if you like. [Select the Maple Ridge store].

Amazon  Barnes & Noble  Indiebound (your local indie bookstore)  Chapters/Indigo  Blackwells  Waterstones  Booktopia (Australia)

If you prefer to get your books from the library, you can suggest to your local library that they get copies of Purr
