Everyone is a weener with Tails of Love!

In memory of renowned romance author Edith Layton, two of my favorite romancelandia blogs, Smart Bitches Trashy Books and Dear Author, are hosting a fundraiser/auction/giveaway to benefit the North Shore Animal League. Layton’s daughter Susie Felber shared that while her mother was very quiet about her battle with ovarian cancer, she was not at all shy about “her insane love of animals,” and so the family decided any memorial contributions should be directed to the NSAL.

And I won Tails of Love in their book giveaway! I ween, I ween!


This was also great reminder for me to donate to Homeward Trails, where I adopted my baby Kedzie almost exactly two years ago.


In case anyone is interested, Tails of Love is a new anthology about the many mysterious ways animals bring love and joy into our lives, featuring Lori Foster, Stella Cameron, Sue-Ellen Welfonder, Kate Angell, Sarah McCarty, Donna MacMeans, Dianne Castell, Patricia Sargeant, Ann Christopher, and Marcia James.

Perhaps MOST importantly – proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Animal Adoption Foundation (AAF), a no-kill animal shelter in Hamilton, Ohio.

Romance novels and animal rescue – two issues very near and dear to my heart. A typical night is me getting all choked up watching Animal Cops, turning it off, and cozying up in bed with a romance novel while cuddling Kedzie to make myself feel better.
