"The Gift That Keeps on Giving"

When I first started writing fifteen years or so ago, I wrote a series of stories about my wife's love of cats. In fact, I sold two different stories, one of them at least twice. That one was reprinted recently in the Cup of Comfort series, Cup of Comfort for the Cat Lover's Soul. Since then, the Cup of Comfort people have used it in their advertising, most recently to promote the "Your Love Story" contest being held in conjunction with Redbook Magazine.

But apparently, my story isn't eligible. It's nice, though, that it has become an example.

That said, one might be surprised to find a story about how a lovestruck man wooed the woman of his dreams in a book for and about feline fanciers, which, by the way, the lovestruck man decidedly was not. But that is exactly the theme of "Silky and the Woman Whose Hair Smelled Nice," by Gary Presley, the grand-prize-winning story in A Cup of Comfort for Cat Lovers.
