Adopting One Cat brings laughter and color to the life of a lonely alien who sees with her heart– until they are unable to prevent his impending trip over the Rainbow Bridge.
But that’s not the end of their friendship.
One Cat will make you giggle, break your heart and rebuild it bigger and stronger than ever. Its sixty deceptively simple illustrations tell a complex, wordless tale that is experienced rather than read.
Simple and poignant, it follows in the footsteps of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince and Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, in that the first of many readings can happen in childhood. As it contains no dialogue it’s easily understood by children, but adults find it captivating and full of meaning and memories.
From reviews for One Cat:
“….I recommend it without hesitation for its charm and inventiveness and emotional honesty.”
“This supercute comic will make you smile and tear up, even without words….”
“Wonderful book for kids of all ages!”
Retail price $2.99 ebook, $9.99 paperback, $25 first-edition paperback.
I can really get the Kindle Version FREE?
If you buy the paperback edition on Amazon, you can download the Kindle version instantly for free.
Hooray! I have a Smashwords Coupon! How do I use it?
You can use Smashwords coupons for yourself and reuse them to give One Cat to as many other people as you like, you don’t even need to know what devices they own.
In fact, please do reuse your coupon, even if it means I don’t get any money. My main concern is obscurity right now so if I can give away a thousand copies I’ll be a very happy cartoonist! (Heck, I’d be happy if I could give away 50 copies. But 1,000 copies I’d be VERY happy!)
Here’s a handy graphic that shows the new Smashwords layout. Click to go there.
Where can I get the ebook?
I recommend Smashwords. You can buy once there and download to all of your devices or send to Dropbox. Kindle, Nook, Android, iBooks, laptops and even old Palm readers work with Smashwords files. But if you don’t want to deal with cords and things….
Amazon Kindle and Kindle App:
Apple iTunes, iBookstore, iPhone, iPad:
Where can I get a Paperback Book?
Sadly, unless I find a traditional publisher without a non-competition clause I can’t foresee the price of the paperbacks going down for some time. I’ve always been impressed with Lulu’s quality but printing on demand, especially in color, is inherently expensive. I may redesign a cheaper color edition with more images per page if there’s interest.
Why do you give out coupons for Smashwords instead of an Amazon Kindle discount like everyone else?
The people who do the .99 or free countdown deals on Amazon are members of KDP Select. I can’t join KDP Select because I ran One Cat by a crowd of people online in installments before the book came out, so technically since people can see every page online someplace I can’t make it exclusive to Amazon. I might change the price again manually for a week here and there but since I’m not a KDP select member I can’t go below 99 cents.
At least that’s how I read the terms. I could be wrong.
Also, my Mom has an iPad and if it’s not on iTunes she won’t be able to share it with friends.
