Linda donates all book profits to a Pinal County, Arizona, shelter and rescue at February 26 event. 
photoenfeedia RSS feed publisherLinda Gorman makes good on her commitment to give to worthy pet loving charities for every one of her books she sells. She had a good day at the Pinal County Animal Shelter & Rescues event last Saturday. For each sale, she contributed $10 to "Friends of Pinal County Animal Shelter & Rescues Inc." operated by Mera Laureys who aggregates it with other donations, all for the support of the shelter. As it says on her StoriesOfPetsByPetsForPets.com website, when she says she'll do it, she means it!

Linda will be presented as a "Featured Author" of Author Solutions who is partnering with the (virtual) Tucson Festival of Books, March 6 and 7, 2021. 
enfeedia RSS feed publisherShe is one of about 30 "Featured Authors" of a total author population of many thousands in the Author Solutions publishing network. As such, a 2.5 minute video presenting herself and information about her book "Stories Of Pets By Pets For Pets", published by a division of Simon and Shuster, will be played in an online Live Stream this coming weekend, March 6 and 7.

Here's the website page to Live Stream. Please notice Linda's video is scheduled to play at 11:15am on both days. But I'm not sure how precisely they will stick to the schedule. Apparently the Childrens/Fiction collection — her book category — will be replayed at 3:05pm.

Tune in and watch Linda make her pitch!

Update as to Availability of the Stories Of Pets By Pets For Pets Audioplay 
photoenfeedia RSS feed publisherIt looks like the Stories of Pets by Pets for Pets audioplay will be in retail in mid January if not earlier. The delay is in part due to the impact of COVID-19 at ACX, the distributor who also provides the final approval of submitted audiobooks, and in part, having to do with an iteration of the approval process in order to subdivide the Opening and Closing sections. That update has been completed and resubmitted to ACX for final approval of those changes. Because of this being a minor non-technical update (no changes to any audio), the approval process is being fast-tracked.

The AudioPlay of "Stories Of Pets By Pets For Pets" is now released to production 
enfeedia RSS feed publisherOn November 2, 2020, Linda released the audiobook version of her print book, Stories of Pets by Pets for Pets, to production. After ACX (the Amazon-owned audiobook distribution firm) performs a final review of the production, it will be released to Amazon, iTunes and Audible -- the three largest purveyors of audiobooks. It may take 30 days for it to appear on those sites (and many more), in time for Holiday giving. See related item on her website, near the top of the left column. You will be surprised!

If you want to pass the word around (and she hopes you do!), you can give them the URL for this site or simply tell them to do an internet search on the term "Linda Gorman's book about pets". She gets far more than her fair share of 'hits' with that search term.

Sneak Preview of the audiobook of Stories Of Pets By Pets For Pets! Coming this fall to a computer near you! 
photoenfeedia RSS feed publisherThe audiobook of Linda's print book, Stories of Pets by Pets for Pets, is in production and expected to be released this fall! The first completed "AudioStory" is "Busy Busy Jasper". It is included on Linda's website for you to enjoy. The completed "AudioPlay" will include all 22 of the stories from her book.

Why the term "AudioPlay"? Because unlike virtually all the other audiobooks, her AudioPlay is presented by "voice actors" with embedded music and special effects. It’s in the style of the radio plays popular prior the arrival of television. Let your imagination roam and hear the pets tell their stories as envisioned by the voice actors.

The AudioPlay will be available on Amazon (along with her print book), iTunes, and Audible that dominates the audiobook marketplace.

FIRST SALE! Delivered Studio "GateSide" on April 1, 2020 
photoenfeedia RSS feed publisherI am pleased to announce the first sale of Stories of Pet by Pets for Pets to Bob and Le Ann. We had to be creative about the personal delivery method, given the COVID-19 disease, social distancing, and hand washing, as everyone in our community was abiding by all recommendations and requirements. We selected the front gate outside my studio and kept our customers on the outside. We briefly broke the six foot distance requirement, not wanting to throw the book at our customers.The payment check was transferred in similar fashion. OK, we staged the photo, and after about five minutes and lots of laughter, we were successful. After the handoff, all parties washed their hands.
