Collaboration makes the sum greater than the parts!

Very recently, I've twice been in situations where I've been selling books next to another author. I shared a table with Angie Holland Bailey at a recent cat show, and I sold books next to Margo Hansen at an area craft show. The very cool thing is, we chatted all day and we promoted each [...]

And, what could be better than knowing you were in a room full of people who were crazy about cats and who care about the welfare of cats?
