Thank you to all of you who have already pre-ordered Tortitude: The BIG Book About Cats With a BIG Attitude! I’m very excited  that the book has been showing fairly consistently at #1 in “New Releases – Cat Breeds,” and even though torties are not a breed (read the book for more on this!), I’m not going to argue with Amazon about being #1!

Unfortunately, it appears that Amazon has gotten a little ahead of themselves, and some of you have received notices that the book will ship later this week and arrive next Tuesday. According to my publisher, this is impossible, since they haven’t even shipped inventory to Amazon. In fact, I haven’t even received my own copy from the printer yet. The book is scheduled for release on February 5 and will ship from Amazon that day.

Then again, maybe all these gorgeous torties in the book were just a little impatient and decided to move things along?

$1 for each copy pre-ordered will go to help at-risk cats

If you haven’t already pre-ordered your copy, remember that I will donate $1 for every copy pre-ordered before February 4, 2016 to the Jackson Galaxy Foundation.

Advance Praise for Tortitude from Jackson Galaxy

“To call torties misunderstood would be the understatement of the year; the misinformed and un-initiated might just see them as moody, grouchy or mean! In this book, Ingrid brings all of her talent, skill and heart to the job of setting the tortie record straight. Anybody who has had the honor of sharing their life with a tortie (like me, as you can see from these pictures of my dear, departed Chuppy) owes Ingrid a debt of gratitude, because she has taken the stereotype, turned it on it’s head, and opened the world’s eyes to the true meaning of tortitude.”

Pre-order your copy now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, from any major bookseller, and everywhere else books are sold.

For bulk orders and to inquire about volume discounts, please contact Mango Media.

The Jackson Galaxy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk animals by transforming the places they live and by helping the people who care for them. They believe that the best dreams are big and that no animal should die waiting for a home. They are working to make this dream a reality.

3 Comments on Tortitude: The BIG Book of Cat With a BIG Attitude Pre-Order Update

  1. I was so happy (OK, I admit, overwhelmed) to learn that my cat will appear in this book, and to be able to read it in February is so great; never got the false news about it be released by late December.
