Publisher:  iUniverse, Inc. ISBN-10:  9781450242288(pbk) Type:  Fiction


Copyright:  July 20, 2010 ISBN-13:  9781450242301(cloth)


A struggling Manhattan writer publishes light-hearted book on the care of cats. He negotiates publishing world and meets colorful people, ending in an unexpected conclusion.

Dick pushed the Playback button, and a male voice came on: Mr. McGorkle--Evan--this is Charles Loundering. I'm calling to acknowledge your e-mail. There are ideas we need to discuss. Bring your complete book Monday morning. I'll see you then."
The message clicked to an end. "Interesting," Dick said. "Can I ask who that was?"
"A hot-shot book publicist," Evan said from the kitchen. "He's gonna help me locate a publisher for my new book--I hope. Make me rich."
"How did you get to him?"
"A little finagling on the phone. I've got to put together ideas for the book by Monday. It's got me nervous."
"Is the book another historical romance?
"No, no. This one is designed to sell. I'll tell you at dinner."

Professional Reviews
:Pauline Graivier, author of "Speak the Language of Success"
It's not surprising that the publisher of Ely's new book has designated it Editor's Choice. What starts as an innocuous tale of a writer finagling the publication of an animal care book, blossoms into a smart, lively, surprisingly complex narrative of contemporary New York City life. This book is full of colorful characters--animals and people--and is a delightful read. Ely's fifth book is his best.

Christina Greenaway, auhor of "Dream Chaser"
Witty--brilliant. The author reveals the true loveliness of caring for a cat, as discovered by Evan McGorkle, a struggling writer who attempts to whip up a lightweight best seller on the subject. Ely at his best!

Rabbi Neil Gillman, emeritus professor, Jewish Theological Seminary
"Ten Ways to Your Cat's Happiness," an iUniverse Editor's Choice, is Stanley Ely's touching portrayal of the complex lives and relationships among a community of New YOrkers. One cannot but be moved by this account.
