Purrseverance Release Day!



Today is the day we've all been waiting for - Purrseverance: Inspiring Stories of Cat Resilience and Hope releases! 

I've dreamt of this day for the past decade, and it's finally come to fruition. 

And I have SO many people to thank for helping turn my dream into a reality.

I'm thankful for all the contributors; their stories made this book an amazing one! Robin Bisha, Janet Buickerood Blue, Belinda Brady, Marjorie Dawson, Debbie De Louise, Terry Frum, Linda Kay Hardie, JaneA Kelley, Katherine Kern, Laurie Miller, Lorianne Miller, Terilynn Mitchell, and Julia Williams contributed fantastic stories about their kitties to this collection. You can read more about each contributor on our Purrseverance page Thank you to Ann from Zoolatry for helping me get the photos for the book print-ready, designing an adorable bookmark, and making book badges. 

Thank you to everyone for your patience! This project took me longer than I had anticipated. I wanted it to be purrfect before I sent it out into the world.

Here's the blurb from the back of the book: 

What do cats do when faced with adversity? They persevere. "Purrseverance" contains 16 accounts of how our feline friends triumphed over life's challenges: from the cat who learned to trust after surviving a hoarding situation, to the cat who conquered a life-threatening illness, to the cats who persisted and eventually found their loving forever homes. Each account is told through the eyes of the cat. These tales show that even seemingly hopeless situations can turn around. These stories will inspire you to keep going and persevere when facing adversities in your own life. "Purrseverance" was compiled by award-winning cat writer and enthusiast, Sierra M. Koester.

You can purchase your copy of Purrseverance: Inspiring Stories of Cat Resilience and Hope in print and ebook from BookBaby, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.

Twenty-five percent of sales proceeds will go to Colorado Feline Foster Rescue


You are welcome to use this book badge on your website or blog if you'd like to help promote the book.
