One of Nancy Hiller’s last “jobs” (which she insisted on doing herself) was recording the audio version of her final book, “Shop Tails” (an often grueling job on a book that clocked in, after final editing, at almost 12 hours). We posted it on the LAP store just hours after we got the final files from her and Jacob Belser at Primary Sounds Studios; that was Aug. 4, 2022. We lost Nancy on Aug. 29, 2022.
Ten percent of net profits from “Shop Tails” – a tribute to the many four-legged friends (and one feathered friend) whose lives were intertwined with Nancy’s – go to The Ranch Cat Rescue, in Bloomington, Ind., a non-profit run by Alison Zook that is funded solely by donations. In a small effort to help Nancy’s favorite cat charity just a little more, we’re asking for $5 donations via this PayPal link (while the fundraiser is channeled through my personal account – all donations will of course go to The Ranch Cat Rescue).
Not only are you helping to support Alison’s work in Nancy’s name, with your $5 (or more) donation you’ll also be entered to win one of two fabulous prizes in a random drawing. First prize is the beautiful fiddleback Tasmanian blackwood cat carved by Australian wood artist and teacher Carol Russell for the book jacket. (She – I’m convinced it’s girl cat – has been keeping me company on my desk since last July. I will miss her, but am willing to let her go in support of such a good cause.) Second prize is the book we made into the audio book cover “Woof!! The Audiobook.” The fundraiser runs through March 13; I’ll the announce winners on March 14.
Here’s that donation link again – and below is an excerpt, Shadow the Turkey Vulture, from Nancy’s audiobook.

Is there any way to donate that doesn’t involve Paypal?
You could send a check directly to the rescue — tell me if you do and I’ll enter your name in the raffle; I’m a trusting sort! Ranch Cat Rescue – Post Office Box 3423 Bloomington, Indiana 47402
Thanks, as an alternative, I will be mailing a check.
I hope you reach your goal!
Thanks for doing this Megan. I’m almost ready to get the audio recording…
I encourage you to get it.
I had bought and read the book, and am now enjoying the audio version in Nancy’s voice on my walks even more…
In memory of Megan, Abigail and Skeezik. We miss our fur babies so much.
Megan, thank you for this opportunity……you have a kind heart.
For cats, anyway 😉
I was withholding my name on Paypal because my cat loving friends would never let me live down donating to a cat rescue if they found out about it, but for Nancy I’ll do it!
Haha. (And thank you)
