Raining Cats & Dogs Blog Tour! #petsontour


Raining Cats Raining Cats and Dogs Blog Tour: 14 January to 14 February
http://tweedling.com/raining-cats-and-dogs-blog-tour-14-january-to-14-february/
Hey! Join me and David M Brown on the Raining Cats & Dogs Blog Tour, where cats and dogs run wild on blogs! Be furry entertained... hopefully :) A special thanks for Donna Brown (Mrs B) of
The Indie Exchange (our co-sponsor) for organising the event!
#petsontour

David M. Brown and I are taking our cats and dogs on tour around a variety of blogs. We will be talking about the books we have written starring our furry heroes and heroines; answering interview questions; making up character posts (mine will be Kiwi and Glen, and others), and writing about other book-related subjects. Over the next four weeks one of us will be on someone's blog, so pop along and join in the fun. 
  
Every blogger – or pet! – taking part will be entered into a draw to win a $50 Amazon gift card. And there’s another $50 up for grabs for spreading the word (see the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post)!


Our books & the characters we'll be talking about

Glen the dog
When nature lover Josie moves into a house share with two pals, dreamer Ben and model man David, she sees it as a short stop and doesn’t bank on an attraction developing with one of them. Meanwhile, Ben’s dog, Glen, has the hots for Miss Posh, the beautiful golden Lab in the park. When dog meets dog it’s puppy love, but a complication leads to Glen taking matters into his own paws. In this comedy of errors, romance and walkies, it’s anyone’s guess who is going to get the girl/dog and live happily ever after.


A quirky bunch of cats
History has known many famous cats – Garfield, Mr Bigglesworth, Simon’s Cat, the Aristocats, the Cheshire cat and the Keyboard Cat on YouTube. In recent years these feline things have replaced man’s best friend as the most popular pet in the U.S. while the Ancient Egyptians once worshipped them as gods. This was a mistake and I’m here to tell you why. Man vs Cat is the story of one man, one woman and the six cats that changed their lives forever. To the woman they brought love and affection, to the man they brought sleepless nights, fear, paranoia and even ruined his jigsaw. Need I say more?


Kiwi the cat and her animal friends
One dark night, Amy cannot sleep and she looks out of the window into the garden to see her cat, Kiwi, transfixed by the moon, which is glowing brightly like a cat’s claw. Waking her brother, James, Amy suggests they follow Kiwi to see where she goes… whether it involves a hunt for mice or something else. Little do they know that, with a flick of her tail, Kiwi is going to magically change them into kittens and lead them on the adventure of their lives to a land they never knew existed in their wildest dreams. In the blue-lit world of Cat City, the budding detectives help Inspector Furrball to solve the mystery of the missing catizens and find out what happened to Madame Purrfect.
