Sidelined Blog Tour PLUS Cat Anthology Details!

Hi everyone,

Today, the blog tour chugs along to Sarah Foster's place, where there will be an excerpt from Taylor from Sidelined's diary, and to Chrys Fey's blog were you will find an excerpt from Sidelined.

I hope you are all enjoying the blog tour so far!

Now, a while ago I mentioned the creation of a cat anthology, with proceeds going to Teignbridge and Totnes Cats Protection! I had enough interest in the project to go ahead with it so I'm getting it set up now with a long deadline, so you will have time to participate if you wish to!

The details:

The story MUST have a cat in it (obviously :p )

You can write a story within your usual genre - even if it's a sci-fi cat, or a paranormal cat, or a love story that has a cat in it

You can write a poem if you prefer

The absolute maximum word count is 2500 words

All entries must be edited by the author prior to publication

You MUST write somewhere on your post that you allow permission for me to use your work in the book

You must also attach a short bio and one link to a place people can find you online

Authors retain copyright for any work submitted to the anthology, and can republish their own work elsewhere, with the understanding that all proceeds for THIS anthology will be going to Cats Protection. 

The deadline for your entries is September 5th 2014 - when there will be a bloghop to celebrate so you can show off your work on your blog before they go into the book AND all participants will be entered into a draw to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card! I will be closing the signs ups on Monday as they have already been up a while but if you see this later and want to be involved, drop me an email and I'll see if I can fit you in. :)

Please tell me if I have forgotten to mention anything!


  1. I probably won't write a cat story, but will spread the news about the anthology for you.

  2. I don't know if I'll get time to write a cat story, but you've given me a lot of time to do so. :) Have a great weekend.

  3. Great to see it's going ahead! Thanks for the long deadline - I'll need it. ;)

  4. Definitely interested in participating, because I'm a complete cat addict and always willing to help out kitties in need. I'm currently writing a short film script where a cat plays an important part. Would that be okay too? Otherwise I can come up with something else.

    1. Hi Vanessa - the linky list is still open so if you want to sign up, please do!

      I wouldn't want to take your film script for this project just because it sounds like you will be wanting to sell/publish it elsewhere, but I will happily accept anything else from you!

  5. I signed up. I'm going to write a true story about the four kittens I saved. I actually have a post going up on the 31st of this month about them. :D

    I just have one question. My mom is a writer and is interested in participating, too, but she doesn't have a blog. Could she email you her entry instead?

  6. Is the list still open? I don't see any sign-up form to fill out, or a notice saying the list is closed. Also, if the list is still open, would it be okay to write a story about stuffed cats coming to life when they're alone?

    1. Hi Carrie-Anne, this sign-ups are now closed, BUT, I love the idea of your story. Drop me an email at kyralennon (at) gmail (dot) come and I'll get you added to the list!
