Hi friend! If you’re here, it probably means you’re looking for some content to help me promote The Queen and the Cats in some way. The book comes out on September 14—the feast of the Holy Cross.

+++Sample blurb you can use to plug the book:I’m excited to announce that my friend Calee Lee’s book The Queen and the Cats: A Story of Saint Helena hits stores this month. As Calee describes it, “this story brings Saint Helena to life in a way that is both accessible and enjoyable for little ones. The lives of the saints provide so many rich stories for our children. I’m thrilled to have partnered with illustrator Turbo Qualls to bring this story to Catholic and Orthodox families around the world.”While this captivating picture book is geared towards kids ages 4-8, older siblings will be quick to take over the read-aloud duties and littler ones will not be able to resist the 24 full-color illustrations. This is the first story of its kind to be available in ebook format (the Kindle version is less than 5 bucks and works on phones, tablets, laptops and more) and you can purchase a print copy on Amazon for $11.99.You can read more about Calee on her blog at CaleeMLee.com or follow her on Twitter @CaleeL.+++Calee M.
