A dozen rescue cats, a dozen unique, compelling and sometimes laugh-out-loud stories — Rescued is not your everyday anthology. Each story is told from the cat’s point of view, and while there is a human author helping to guide each tale, it’s the felines who have the spotlight, and the voice.
Each cat in this anthology is real, and their stories are all true (although some may have embellished the details, as cats tend to do). Each feline overcame humble, sad or downright tragic beginnings to become loved and treasured family or community members. Several felines are celebrities in their own right — Rescued features a cozy mystery muse, a star of a popular internet video series, a world-renowned library cat, and several members of the very large cat blogging community. The authors were carefully chosen through a submission process that looked for personality, writing talent and an entertaining read.
FitCat head and main editor Janiss Garza came up with the idea because she wanted to 1) publish an anthology that actually made money for its authors; 2) create a book that gave back to the community that inspired it; and 3) develop a promotional campaign that even shy authors could embrace. For the first year, a portion of the book’s profits are going to a dozen different rescues, each one paw-picked by the authors of these 12 stories.
