Hadleyville, U.S.A (AP)—Hundreds of protesters converged on the Hadleyville complex again last night. The "Howl In" began at midnight and continued until authorities arrived and arrested several of the more obstreperous cats.
"It's a 'rent-a-cat' strategy, pure and simple," the mayor declared. "And it must end."

Meanwhile, the author is continuing in her book launch. She optimistically stated, "I'm sure the Feline Familiars will come to their senses and agree to stop this protest."
In an effort to overcome the mounting negative publicity, C. Lee Mckenzie is posting helpful hints on things she learned while preparing to launch this most recent and most controversial book.
"One thing about doing a book launch is you learn a lot and meet a lot of people who are willing to help you out. Here are a few things I've learned," she said during our interview.
- Ask for "help-advice"when you need it.
- Listen and take any 'help-advice" from those who are successful launching their books.
- Don't rush. You're going to make a lot of mistakes anyway and rushing only increases the number of mistakes.
- Organize your hop or your tour or your whatever. Linky is a good way to do that. It collects all the participants and their contact information in one place.
- Have all your links and your posts as complete as possible, so you don't have to send additional information later. I know I like setting my posts up ahead of schedule, so it saves time if I only have to do that once for each post.
- Remember, this is a network, so help others when they need it.
- Once your guest post is up, visit that page, tweet, post the link on fb and respond to the comments. That interaction helps you and your host. It widens your network of bloggers and readers.
- Above all, enjoy the beejeebers out this event.
If you can, leave more "help-advice" for us in a comment and if at all possible I'd appreciate letters to your congressmen and women supporting my fight against the unfair treatment by the Federation of Feline Familiars.
