Joyful approach badgeHi guys! Today I am very excited to welcome author Clancy Nacht to Joyfully Jay.  Clancy is here as part of the Joyful Approach: Countdown to GRL and is sharing some more details on her new release, You’re Welcome. Love, Your Cat.  She has also brought a copy to give away to one lucky reader! So please join me in giving her a big welcome!


you're welcome love your catCats are wonderful, loving animals if you treat them right. My mom maintains that I was raised by cats, so that may explain my attitude about my nannycat Monty and all subsequent feline caretakers who have done their best to monitor and mentor me. It’s also why it was so natural to write a story with cats gently guiding the protagonists together with their own quiet romance. Don’t worry, there’s no on-page cat action.

The story, You’re Welcome. Love, Your Cat, is about a man named Edwin who loses his life partner and devotes his life to caring for his cat and vowing celibacy. As much as the cat, Frannie, loves her human companion, she knows that as his caretaker, she needs to make sure he gets more out of life. And, as she is a cat, if she finds a way to benefit herself….

Frannie escapes and finds love with a rough-and-tumble tom cat named Nasty who is caring for his person, a rough around the edges mechanic named Forrest. As it turns out, rough is exactly what Frannie and her charge need. While she can mostly count on nature taking its course, Frannie is there to guide them with a gentle paw.

My darlings always help me with my writing. When they’re not, you know, testing out this whole “mouse is a metaphor” thing.

They know when to call it quits for the day.

But the lesson they’ve really taught me is to share.
