Pets who read mysteries!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

Last week I ran a contest on my blog and Facebook:  Send me a picture of your pet reading my book to enter for a chance to get an advance review copy of my latest Booktown Mystery, BOOK CLUBBED (which will be available on July 1st).  I had a great response.

Several cats decided to start at the very beginning of the the Booktown series with Murder Is Binding. That's Debbie L's cat Smithie.  She says she can't get enough of the Booktown Mysteries!

To the right is Laura I's girl Kit-Kat.  She told her mom, "Stop bugging me with this picture taking...can't you see I'm about to sink my teeth into Lorna Barrett's Murder Is Binding?!"

The book was also very popular with dogs, such as Leah A's girl Olive (at left)

 and Sally S's pup Pep (at the right.)

It turns out that not just cats and dogs like to catch up on the Booktown Mysteries.  Bunnies like Linda D's Hannah like the series, too! (That's Bookmarked for Death, the 2nd book in the series.)

A few of the pets decided to try my other series, like Linda's K's dog Gizmo decided to read One Hot Murder (the third book in my Victoria Square mystery series).

Meanwhile, Margie B's dog Max likes reading my edgier Jeff Resnick series while enjoying a cup of tea.  Doesn't he look scholarly?  Kind of like Mr. Peabody!  (BTW, that's the first in the series, Murder on The Mind. If you've got an ereader, it's free for all e formats.)

Some people don't have pets, so they got creative.  Like Jennifer S.  Her stuffed Shrek liked Not The Killing Type (which comes out in paperback on July 1st).  He read it on her e reader.  (Smart little guy, huh?)

I got many more entries, and I'll be posting all of them on Facebook during the next week or so.  I hope you'll visit my profile page to see them and comment on them!

See you there!
