#FuzzyFriday Shout-out to the Heart of Dixie Readers Luncheon with Sylvia Day

J-Dog here.  I hope you have been enjoying my #FuzzyFriday interviews with the fur-babies of the publishing world.  Those have been some cool cats (and dogs).  Stay tuned because I have more great interviews coming up.  Next week Buford, the dog who sniffs out great authors for the BookEnds Literary Agency will be visiting us.  Hope you'll drop by to meet him.  

Because I love introducing you to authors, I wanted to hijack the blog today to give you a chance to meet tons of fabulous authors at one time.  My mommy Heather (or as I call her, Keeper of the Catnip) has been counting the days until the 18th Annual Heart of Dixie Readers Luncheon on June 13 in Huntsville, Alabama. The keynote speaker is New York Times best seller Sylvia Day.  She is the international bestselling author of over 20 award-winning novels, and her Crossfire series has been optioned for television.  Attendees get goodie bags packed full of fun stuff, including books, bookmarks, postcards and other treasure.  

To make the event even better, there will be over 20 meow-tastic local and regional authors hosting tables and attending the event.  They include:

Betty Bolté (Historical) - She's Calli's mom 
Kim Boykin (Women's Fiction)
Jennifer Estep (Paranormal)
Lexi George (Paranormal)
Lori Handeland (Paranormal)
Lynn Raye Harris (Romantic Suspense)
Pamela Hearon (Contemporary)
Linda Howard (Romantic Suspense)
Linda Winstead Jones (Paranormal)
Linda Joyce (Contemporary)
Sally Kirkpatrick (Contemporary) - Rocket and Blix call her The One Who Taps
Kimberly Lang (Contemporary)
Andrea Laurence (Contemporary)
Trish Milburn (Contemporary)
Rhonda Nelson (Contemporary)
Alicia Hunter Pace (Contemporary)
Kira Sinclair (Contemporary)
Tracy Solheim (Contemporary)
Jennifer St. Giles (Gothic Historical/Paranormal)
Vicki Lewis Thompson (Contemporary)
Dani Wade (Contemporary)
Shiloh Walker (Romantic Suspense)
 Marilyn Baxter (Contemporary)
Bonnie Gardner (Contemporary)
Christine Glover (Contemporary) - I hope she'll have Tonks there
Lesia Flynn (Cotemporary)

Tickets are on sale through May 31, so there isn't much time left to get your tickets.  To register, go to  You can also learn more about each of these authors from their profiles on the Heart of Dixie Events Facebook page.

And while I have you here, I wanted to remind you about the awesome people at the Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic.  Even though they took my binkies, I think they are the cat's pajamas.  One of the great things they do is a TNR program.  Trap-Neuter-Return involves trapping the cats in a feral colony, getting them spayed and neutered, adopting out kittens and friendly cats, then returning the adult feral cats to their territory and providing them with food and shelter.  TNR significantly reduces noise from fighting, odor from spraying, and more litters of kittens.  

I do all my shopping through AMAZON SMILE. Through this program, Amazon donates 0.5% of eligible purchase to a charity of your choice, like the Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic.  If you shop through Amazon, consider using this program to support one of your favorite non-profits (or mine).

I would love to hear who you would like to meet next.  If there is an author's fur baby(fish baby, fang baby, frog baby, feather baby, etc.) you want to meet, please comment below. 

Hope to see you next week when Buford takes over!
