Today is Karen’s birthday, but we won’t say which one. We cats are planning a BIG surprise and we need your help.
Back in 2006, we inspired Karen to write a little book called How to Work Like a CAT: Walking with Confidence Through a Dog-Eat-Dog World. As of June 2009, sales stood at 7,249 copies. The publisher never did much to promote the book, but Karen worked her tail off to get it noticed.
In honor of her birthday, we’d like to boost sales to a respectable 10,000 copies, but since we’re indoor-only cats, this blog is our only way to spread the word.
The book is hardcover, full-color, and overflowing with feline wisdom. It makes an excellent, inexpensive gift for anyone who likes cats or works too hard — which covers just about everybody.
Cats Working readers, please help us between now and Christmas. Tell your family and friends about the book. Ask for it in your local bookstore. Take a minute to send a link to the book’s official Web site to everyone you know. It’s http://www.worklikeacat.com.
(You can get used copies dirt-cheap, too, but they won’t count toward our goal — they’ve already been sold once.)
There’s also a really nice spin-off 2010 wall calendar at Amazon. Karen wrote all new tips for it. We’d love for you to buy that, too, but we won’t be greedy.
We’ve written 421 posts for your amusement and have never wanted anything in return. But now we’re shamelessly asking you — just once — to show us the power of Cats Working.
PS: Karen won’t know about this until January when the next royalty statement comes, but we’ll let you know how you did.
